Ignis has a strong, sturdy and rigid monocoque body frame. Computer-aided design was used to perfect impact-absorbing crumple zones which disperse energy and therefore achieve a high energy absorption rate.
The body's main structure also serves to disperse impact energy and the cabin is built to resist deformation. Side impact protection beams are fitted in the doors and the centre pillars are backed by urethane pads that further help to absorb shock from a side impact.
For supplemental passenger protection Ignis is equipped with driver and front passenger airbags whilst both front seatbelts feature belt pretensioners and a load-limiting mechanism which reduces the belt load to minimise shock on the user in the case of an abrupt stop.
Very well equipped
In keeping with Suzuki's philosophy of maximising value for money Ignis is extremely well-equipped and its wide range of standard features includes power steering, radio/cassette, dual front airbags, colour-matched bumpers and an engine immobiliser. Electric windows and mirrors, central locking and many other items are standard on GL models whilst the GL 5-door also has alloy wheels, front fog lamps and roof rails.
Because many Ignis owners will wish to take advantage of its flexibility and the contributions that it can make to their individual lifestyle activities a wide range of exclusive Suzuki designed and approved accessories is to be available.
The range - which will be progressively expanded - includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, specialist roof racks and storage boxes, fog lamps, front and rear spoilers, manual and electric sunroofs, exterior image items and interior comfort equipment. All items will be available exclusively and only from Suzuki dealers.
The New 1.3-litre Suzuki Ignis is covered by Suzuki Shield, a 3 year / 60,000 mile new vehicle warranty, by Suzuki Assistance, providing 24 hour roadside assistance, recovery and associated services for 36 months and by a 12 year perforation warranty. It is available with Suzuki Low Cost Insurance and can be purchased with the help of a wide range of finance plans available from Suzuki Finance.Published 6 August 2003
