Suzuki Australia has at last confirmed it will introduce the funky Ignis SUV in early 2017.

First revealed at last-year’s Tokyo motor show, the little Ignis has been under a cloud of doubt for Australia until this week.

The company hopes to build on the 4.0 per cent sales growth it has seen locally this year (excluding Queensland, which is managed by a separate company), with the Ignis joining the popular Vitara in Suzuki’s reborn SUV line-up.

Andrew Moore, Suzuki Australia’s general manager, said: “Vitara has been an outstanding SUV success for Suzuki, with customers enjoying the performance of the turbo and it’s personalisation options.

“With the new Ignis SUV, we’ll be adding another style icon to the range, with its retro looks, bright colours and immense personalisation sure to be popular amongst Australian motorists”.

Final specifications are still to be confirmed, likely to be detailed closer to the Ignis’s first quarter launch next year.

A likely powerplant is the company’s new 1.0-litre ‘Boosterjet‘ turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine, which recently debuted in the Baleno hatchback.
