2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX auto review: Long-term report four – around town practicality

Those of you wondering whether I like micro cars should probably know that I own a late first-gen Smart Fortwo – yes, I’m a little partial to the idea of a useful city car. That could be part of the reason I ended up as custodian of the 2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX… We’ve had the Smart for nearly three years now, and on a weekend, it almost always gets used more than any big dollar press car...

2017 Suzuki Swift review

See the full article here Suzuki is on a roll. New offerings such as the Ignis, Baleno and Vitara are giving the humble Japanese brand more exposure than it has had in years. But the all-new Suzuki Swift you see here is the big one, because it's the company's most popular vehicle and the one it's best known for...

2017 Suzuki Swift review

The new 2017 Suzuki Swift aims to keep the charm that made its predecessors so enduringly popular, while adding a veneer of modern tech and safety. Job mostly done.

2017 Suzuki Swift pricing and specs

The 2017 Suzuki Swift has arrived to challenge the just-upgraded Mazda 2 and new Kio Rio in Australia's struggling light-car market. This latest iteration of Suzuki's top-seller - Swift sales since 2005 sit at about five million units - brings improvements across the board, compared to its seven-year old predecessor...

2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX auto review: Long-term report three – country driving

I’ve warmed like a late Spring afternoon to the 2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX, our long-termer tester that seems to have spent most of CarAdvice’s custodianship in co-conspirator Trent Nikolic’s pocket – perhaps literally – outside of the rare opportunity to occasionally “take her around the block”. Brief impressions, then, but good ones...

Suzuki is Australia's loveable underdog

Ten years ago a visit to your neighbourhood Suzuki dealer promised as much excitement as doing three years worth of tax returns. But, like a few other Japanese brands of late - Honda comes immediately to mind - humble little Suzuki has suddenly pulled its finger out...

2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX auto review: Long-term report two – infotainment

Now, you’d think that providing infotainment that works, is just as crucial as providing that infotainment system in the first place? Sadly, after a few weeks behind the wheel of our long-term 2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX, it seems Suzuki hasn’t quite gotten this crucial element right. The specifications would indicate reason to rejoice – especially given the sub 20k starting price...

New Suzuki Swift touches down ahead of June 2 launch

A batch of all-new 2017 Suzuki Swifts have arrived from the factory in Japan for the Australian launch on June 2, ready to help add some life to our flagging light car market. The new Swift - which replaces the seven-year-old outgoing model - is the latest in a line of new offerings from Suzuki, and by far its most important...

2017 Suzuki Ignis GLX auto review: Long-term report one – introduction

Despite members of the small car segment being decidedly bland, the micro car segment (which sits beneath it) always seems to offer up some quirky, different and appealing alternatives to the mainstream boredom. And perhaps the best of them at the moment is the 2017 Suzuki Ignis, and in top-spec GLX guise, it’s an absolute steal at $19,990 drive away...

2017 Suzuki Ignis GL review

It's the happiest looking car on the market, but does the entry-grade Suzuki Ignis still have enough to make it a real city-car character?

Aqua is back, baby!

You guys, have you noticed? Aqua is back. No, I’m not talking about the shit band from the 2000s that had the hit about Barbie. I’m talking about the colour. On cars, specifically. In even more specific terms, car brands are seemingly embracing the idea that not all cars have to be black, white, grey or silver, though the targeting is very much where you’d expect it – at the younger buyer group, the ones who aren't going to be spending more than about $40,000 on a car...

Suzuki Ignis proving that 'weird' can sell

Everyone like a left-field success story, and on first impression the new Suzuki Ignis fits the bill. Launched in the middle of January this year, the retro-cool Suzuki city car attracted signifiant attention for its unusual design and crossover ground clearance. But the real question was whether anyone would actually buy something resembling a Pokémon on wheels...

2017 Geneva motor show: Epic from-the-show-floor experience

If you don't already know, Geneva is in Switzerland. And while some Aussies might miss having motor shows here in Oz, few will see that as enough of an excuse to splash out to attend a major international one. Luckily, this year's 2017 Geneva motor show (on until March 19) was my first, and it was so good, I didn't want anyone to miss out...
