  • All versions cheap to run

No Suzuki Ignis is particularly expensive to run, with all models boasting claimed fuel economy of over 60mpg and CO2 emissions below 106g/km for cheap tax bills for private and company car drivers.

The best of the bunch is the SZ5 Dualjet SHVS, which thanks to its electrical assistance returns a claimed 65.7mpg and emits 97g/km of CO2.

Insurance costs haven’t been announced at time of publication, but we’d expect due to the nature of the car they’ll be appreciably low.

Servicing costs could be fractionally higher if you don’t live near to a Suzuki dealership due to the extra travel to and from the garage.

No matter which version of the Suzuki Ignis you go for, its CO2 emissions are relatively low. The SHVS-equipped model is the best – its 97g/km figure is the only one that weighs in under the 100g/km threshold for free VED car tax at time of writing.

However, none of the other models gets above 106g/km, so this isn’t an expensive car to tax, regardless of spec.

We don’t foresee huge problems here. Suzuki’s reliability record is very impressive – the firm is famous for its excellent engineering – and the Baleno, whose platform the Ignis shares, doesn’t stand out as an unreliable model in any sense.

The cabin feels fair well-built but it has to be said, some of the plastics are very flimsy.
