The Suzuki Ignis will arrive in Australia early next year and we are still awaiting local pricing and specification details.
Both the entry-level model and an offering with an optional safety assist system were tested and the results are quite an eye-opener.
The model fitted with the Dual Camera Brake Support (DCBS) system was awarded a five-star rating, while the lower-spec model gained just three-stars.
The Suzuki Ignis fitted with standard safety equipment scored 79% on adult and child occupant protection, 67% pedestrian protection and 25% on safety assist.
While the model with DBCS was found to offer 87% adult occupant protection, 79% child occupant protection, 77% pedestrian protection and the safety assist score jumped up to 60%.
We will keep you updated with further Suzuki Ignis news as it comes to hand.
