It seems just about every car manufacturer worth its salt is throwing its hat into the small SUV ring, but few are more experienced at building them than Suzuki.

This time around, Suzuki has taken the 'small' part to the extreme; the Ignis is just 3.7m long and 1.7m wide. It's so small, in fact, that it’s about the same size as the Volkswagen Up and Kia Picanto city cars. However, with its flared arches, bluff nose and jacked-up stance, there’s no mistaking it for anything other than a radically designed and eye-catching baby SUV.

Just one engine is available: Suzuki's 89bhp 1.2-litre petrol unit, which has the further option of a more fuel-efficient mild hybrid version that was previously seen in the Baleno hatchback. And to prove its SUV worthiness, you can also opt for four-wheel drive.

There are four trims to choose from: SZ3, SZ-T, SZ5 and Adventure, the latter being an SZ-T with an enhanced styling package. Read on to find out which gets our vote and if we think the Ignis is worth considering over other similar-priced small SUVs, such as the Dacia Duster.

And if you do want an Ignis, head over to our New Car Deals page, where you could find a good saving at a nearby dealer.
