Mixed results for Suzuki Ignis in Euro crash tests

The Suzuki Ignis will arrive in Australia early next year and we are still awaiting local pricing and specification details.

Ahead of that local arrival, the small SUV/crossover Suzuki model has just been tested by the European crash test authority – Euro NCAP.

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%.
