Special edition 2018 Suzuki Ignis Adventure launched In UK

A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.

Suzuki Great Britain has recently presented a special edition model of the company’s compact hatch – Suzuki Ignis. Christened as ‘Suzuki Ignis Adventure’, the car is based on the top-end Suzuki Ignis SZ-T variants and comes with a selection of the most popular and distinctive personalization options. Suzuki will be making the Ignis Adventure in limited numbers and the company is offering four colour options – Fervent Red (Solid paint), Boost Blue Pearl, Pure White Pearl, and Super Black Pearl as optional metallic colours. The special edition Ignis Adventure has officially gone on sale in the country at £13,999 which is about Rs.12.01 lakh, with the personalization kit. Visually, the car looks like a well-kitted version of the standard Suzuki Ignis, expressly with the new paint scheme and add-on equipment. Each of these new vibrant body colour is coupled with contract pinstripes that run along the shoulder line, fog lamps, and the new bumpers. Like the ST-Z variant, the Adventure model also gets roof rails, and similar tail lamps.

As stated before, being based on the Suzuki Ignis SZ-T variant, the Adventure models get the same features as the former. The SZ-T trims standard offerings include –16-inch alloy wheels, rear-view camera, individually sliding rear seats and roof rails. In addition to these features, the Adventure model comes with offerings like – rear spoiler, side mouldings, front and rear skid plates, coloured front grille center bar, side decal set and colour keyed front fog lamp bezels. Mechanically, the Suzuki Ignis Adventure remains completely unchanged. Under the hood, the UK-spec Suzuki Ignis is powered by a 1.2 Litre Dualjet petrol engine that makes about 89 bhp that comes mated to a five speed manual gearbox. The Ignis has quite a bit of popularity in the Indian market as well and knowing Maruti Suzuki India, which has a penchant for introducing special edition models, we might get similar to this in India as well in near future. The India-spec model right now comes with both petrol and diesel units – an 82 bhp 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine and a 74 bhp 1.3-litre DDiS diesel motor. Both mills come paired with a five-speed manual transmission and optional AMT units as well.
