The exterior design has hardly changed from the Suzuki iM-4 concept.

The website says that Suzuki Australia is pushing the HQ for the Ignis’ launch in the market but at this time nothing is certain.

The Ignis is based on the Suzuki iM-4 concept that was showcased at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The dimensions of the compact car has not been revealed yet, but the concept was measured at 3693 mm long, 1709 mm wide, and had a height of 1566 mm, with a 2438 mm long wheelbase.

The Ignis has a high ground clearance, and the addition of all-wheel drive may give it some off-road capability.

The pictures show that the Ignis has a high ground clearance and there is also speculation about an all-wheel drive system being optional. The dashboard layout is a new design for Suzuki with a floating infotainment screen as well as the insertable colour panels seen earlier on the Vitara.

The Suzuki Ignis features a completely new dashboard layout.

The Ignis’ engines have not been confirmed but if launched in Australia, it could come with the 1.0-liter Boosterjet engine that recently made its debut in the Suzuki Baleno.
