Suzuki’s new Ignis will make its European debut at the Paris Motor Show in September.

First seen at the Tokyo show in October 2015 and taking the name of a hatchback last produced in 2008, the new Ignis is a small crossover and could tempt buyers away from the likes of Fiat’s Panda.

It is based on the IM-4 concept, unveiled at the 2015 Geneva show and it built on a new lightweight platform.

Suzuki is currently releasing few details as to the powertrain options with the Ignis but is stating that the platform allows the use of the brand’s mild hybrid unit SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) – providing assistance through an electric motor and efficient battery recharging to improve fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance.

   

The Ignis is due to go on UK sale in January 2016.

Also on the Suzuki stand in Paris will be a facelifted version of the S-Cross crossover. Changes include a revamped front exterior design and improvements to interior quality.

The facelifted model will replace the current 1.6-litre petrol engine with 1.0-litre and 1.4-litre versions of Suzuki’s new Boosterjet direct-injection turbo units.

The revised S-Cross model range will launch in the UK in mid-October.
