Suzuki Ignis: 2017 World Car of the Year Finalist

The critically acclaimed all-new Suzuki Ignis has been named as a finalist in the Urban Car category of 2017 World Car of the Year awards.


The Urban Category, new for 2017, judges cars on sale in more than two continents that are less than 4-metres in length and suitable for daily use in a town or city environment. First released in Japan, the Ignis went on sale in the UK on January 1st of this year and has proved popular, with 560 units sold in January alone.

“As our 70-plus jurors have decided and as I have long suspected, Suzuki builds some of the finest small cars on the market – thus its official position as a finalist. The company may yet go on to lift the World Urban Car trophy at the New York International Motor Show in April.”
