I was wondering how many of you own one. I can't get allgrip in automatic so it looks like I am going to get the SZ5 in auto and no allgrip.

When we last rebalanced the fleet we had an automatic one on weekend demonstration and it was very good everyone liked driving it. All that put us off was with the age of Dreadnaught being what it is we felt that the ignis was just a bit too light to ask to cover for the Jimny in the event of prolonged downtime. I think though that if the work load changes as it looks like it will then an ignis could be joining us.

I am not 100% clear what that means.:blush:
To me it looks like a mini Range Rover at the front and inside is a cross between the Fiat 500 and the Mini.
What impresses me is the amazing legroom in the seat adjustability. I find it so unusual that Suzuki have achieved this because I am sure nobody that designs their cars is over 6 feet tall.
I jumped (not literally) in to my Celerio and it was a real struggle in terms of leg room.
I am sure the allgrip would be a superb little motor..

Dreadnaught is the main adapted farm vehicle with over 90k miles. While still fighting fit and healthy at the moment, farm work is notorious for being demanding.

Aha, gotcha. I have heard that before. Well in my mind the Ignis would be no match for farm work. I'd love to take a tractor out on the roads round here...........they drive me mental though when I am behind one which is almost twice a day. They never want to pull over and let the queue pass.

I remember. I'd like to lift it but doubt I shall but bigger tyres might make a big difference if they will fit under the arches. I am looking for a spare wheel, not an emergency one. Don't mind if it is steel. I wonder if Swift ones fit.
They are hard to get especially the auto.:blink:

My daughter has a manual SZ5 AllGrip Ignis, it's a great little car, she loves it. The manual version is a mild hybrid.

I liked the idea of the button that locks all four wheels, never got a chance to use it though.

I love it. It adjusts and does all sorts of things. One problem with the Ignis is storage, there is none!! So this helps a lot.
