To tell the truth, without straining too much gaze and trying to avoid marketing networks, the Ignis is more what else a city car with ambitions; (absolutely dignified) off-road vehicles.

Finally in that of Suzuki they would be ready to launch in the range a real small compact SUV , taking the best-selling Suzuki Swift and equipping it with more ground clearance. considerable.
