On September 7, Suzuki Motor introduced updated modifications of the Suzuki Ignis hatchback to the Japanese market.
In addition to the existing Suzuki Ignis Hybrid MG and Hybrid MF trim levels, there is a new version – Hybrid MV. It now has paddle shifters for virtual transmissions of a variator transmission, as well as LED “fog lights” located in the front and rear.
In addition, the Hybrid MG version now has keyless entry with a button to start the internal combustion engine, as well as climate control. The basic equipment of the Hybrid MF version includes leatherette seat trim. At the same time, the Hybrid MX and Hybrid MZ trim levels were retired.
Also, with the update, the Suzuki Ignis model began to be equipped with a safety system, which, using information analysis, can prevent the acceleration of the car if the driver mistakenly presses the accelerator pedal instead of the brake pedal.
The updated Suzuki Ignis is still equipped with a 1.2-liter Dualjet gasoline engine with 91 hp, as well as a 2.3 kW starter-generator. The latter not only charges the lithium-ion battery at the moment of braking and controls the start-stop system, but also helps the power unit during acceleration. The base cost of Ignis is 1 million 600 thousand 500 yen (that’s about $ 14,600). As a reminder, the second generation Suzuki Ignis has been in production since 2015.
