Suzuki is proud to introduce its new generation Ignis which is basically a production version of the iM-4 concept that was unveiled back in March this year at the Geneva Motor Show. The car’s design shouldn’t really come as a surprise taking into account several official patent sketches emerged onto the web a little over a month ago. As you can see, Suzuki is showing off their new Ignis with an attractive orange body paint and black alloy wheels while the A pillars have been blacked out as well to enable a stylish look for the cute little car.

As you would expect, this has been envisioned as an affordable and cheap to run city car and Suzuki has implemented a higher ground clearance which should prove to be very useful when tackling bumpy roads. Up front it has an interesting set of headlights with LED daytime running lights and black graphics while at the back it hosts large taillights that extend on the tailgate.

The funky exterior design is combined with a simple yet efficient interior cabin that features body-colored accents on the door handles and the center tunnel while the tablet-styled touchscreen display provides access to a plethora of functions. Also noticeable is the two-tone look of the dashboard along with a three-spoke steering wheel that comes with built-in controls while the seats should provide great lateral support and comfort.

In terms of power, the 2016 Suzuki Ignis will get a 3-cylinder 1.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine along with a 1.2-liter motor which will be teamed up with a SHVS mild hybrid system. A front wheel drive layout is going to be standard but chances are the new Ignis will also be offered at an additional cost with an AWD layout.

More details will be disclosed at the end of this month when the vehicle will make its world premiere at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan set to open its doors for the public on the 30th.
