Following its success in 2020 and 2021, the Suzuki Ignis Hybrid compact SUV has again been awarded a ‘Best Buy’ at the 2022 What Car? Awards held in London on 20th January. Ignis was comprehensively judged by the editorial team and announced as the best value overall small SUV model.
Commenting at the awards, Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? said If you want a car with a high driving position but low costs, nothing does it quite like the Ignis. Not only does it offer bargain pricing, but its mild hybrid petrol engine positively sips fuel; indeed, it delivers the best rural and motorway economy of anything we've ever put through our real-world True MPG test with figures of 74.8mpg and 53.3mpg respectively.
As a bonus, the Ignis really embraces the 'small' in 'small SUV', making it a doddle to park and manoeuvre, yet it's surprisingly spacious inside, comfortably accommodating four adults”.
Ignis also won the long established magazine’s True Mpg award in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
Readers of What Car? regularly ask the team to assist with advice on their next new car and in the case of needing something small, cheap to buy and run and also easy to drive, Ignis is very high on the list and adds further choice too with the optional availability of its Allgrip ‘Auto’ 4x4 system.
Suzuki has some very attractive Finance offers running through until the end of March and Ignis SZ3 at £13,749 (including £1,000 customer saving) is available for just £169 per month with a deposit of £2,674 on a 49 month PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) agreement. A final optional payment of £5,219 would be required to keep the car at the end of the term.
Moving up the Ignis range to an SZ-T model requires monthly payments of just £20 per month more at £189 with an intial deposit of £2,992 and final optional payment of £5,668.
