New Ignis 5-Door Hatchback Announced | Part Three

New Ignis 5-Door Hatchback


Electric power steering

The power steering system is electric and minimises power loss and reduces fuel consumption by between 3 and 5%. It provides more power assistance at lower speeds for lighter and more responsive handlingand less power assistance at higher speeds.

Front ventilated disc brakes

The large 257 mm diameter ventilated front disc brakes work in tandem with the leading/trailing rear drum brakes to deliver dependable stopping power.

Safety and security

The body structure has been engineered to protect of the occupants in the event of a collision. Crushable zones absorb impact energy in a safe, controlled manner, while the cabin resists deformation, helping to prevent impact forces from reaching the occupants. The main members effectively disperse impact energy evenly throughout the structure, while side impact-protection beams are incorporated in the front and rear doors to absorb impact forces.

Three-point ELR seatbelts for all seats

Three-point ELR seatbelts are fitted on all five seats. Those at the front have pre-tensioners and height adjustable anchorages. The ISOFIX child seat restraint system is also standard. Front and side airbags and active safety head restraints Front SRS airbags, side airbags and active safety head restraints are provided for both the driver and front seat passenger. In the event of a rear collision the active head restraints absorb impact by using the force of the passenger against the seatback to instantaneously move the restraint forward to support the head and neck area.

ABS with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD)

Latest generation ABS prevents wheel lockup following sudden braking application even under slippery road conditions. EBD adjusts the distribution of braking force between the front and rear wheels depending upon the weight of passengers and luggage to ensure maximum stopping power in various situations.

Anti-theft technologies

Deadlocks, freewheeling key cylinders, an immobiliser and visible VIN provide effective and thorough anti-theft protection. Keyless remote central locking is also standard.

Practical, versatile interior

A host of interior amenities adds up to a more comfortable motoring experience. Door trim pockets, bottle holders on all doors, cup holders, a glove box, under-dash storage space, a front-seat back pocket, passenger 'grab' handles, coat hooks, a 12 volt accessory socket, a centre console, a storage tray under the front passenger seat and more are all standard

Versatile rear seat configuration; generous luggage space

The 60:40 split rear seatback - which can be reclined for comfort or folded flat in a single action - allows luggage space and passenger seating to be adjusted in a variety of ways. The luggage area alone is 665 mm long and 1,119 mm wide, with a capacity of 526 litres and expands to 1,002 litres when the rear seats are folded.
