Practicality & boot space Rating

3.5 out of 5

Make no mistake: the Suzuki Ignis is a small car. At 3.7 metres long and just over a metre-and-a-half wide, it could comfortably fit in a large sitting room. It’s tall, though; in fact, it’s taller than the Nissan Qashqai, which means it’s significantly more spacious than many cars with a similar footprint.

Suzuki Ignis interior space & storage

The Ignis’ tall stature provides an extremely generous amount of headroom, while the upright seating position facilitated by such a tall profile ensures legroom is genuinely adequate for fully-grown adults. True, you won’t be able to lounge out, legs stretched before you, but nor will you feel claustrophobic. Sitting as if in a desk chair may make longer journeys uncomfortable, though, while the Ignis’ relatively low power is likely to translate to a lethargic driving experience when travelling with a full complement of passengers. Note the sliding seats included with higher trim levels can only accommodate two people, while the fixed items found in the entry-level SZ3 Ignis can seat three.

Boot space

At 267 litres, the Ignis’ boot is reasonable for a small car. For comparison, the Ford Fiesta has a 292-litre boot and the Skoda Citigo offers 251 litres. None of these can hold a candle to the boot found in Renault Captur, though; it has a 455-litre capacity.

If you go for an Ignis with the sliding, split-folding rear seats, boot space is reduced by a negligible seven litres. The four-wheel-drive car asks a more significant sacrifice in terms of luggage space, as the extra mechanical parts shrink capacity to just 204 litres.

Towing

As the Ignis is a small and light car with a relatively low-powered engine, anyone wanting to tow a large trailer or caravan should look elsewhere. However, the Ignis does have a towing limit of a 1,000kg braked trailer, which could be handy for mounting a bicycle rack or towing a smaller load or micro caravan.
