The 2017 edition of the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show is currently underway in Indonesia with a slew of models from various manufacturers on display. Suzuki’s Indonesian arm PT Suzuki Indomobil has unveiled two concepts of the Suzuki Ignis at the show. The more interesting of the two is the S-Urban Concept which has been conceptualised with the thought of a rally spec, off-road, aggressive looking Ignis.
The exterior of the S-Urban concept features various design elements to differentiate it from the more regular urban looking Ignis and add a touch of aggression. The major differences over the regular Ignis include a black plastic off-road-spec bumper with integrated fog lamps, Jimny-inspired 6-slot vertical grille, chunky off-road tyres wrapped on gun metal rally rims, thick black plastic front and rear fenders, rocker panel guards, hood scoop, roof rails and black ORVMs. At the rear, it has a bold black plastic bumper and a new rear spoiler. The concept Ignis has been finished with a new dual tone orange and white exterior with contrasting silver finished roof rails.
While the interior has not been captured in these pics, it should be identical to the standard Ignis nevertheless. The Ignis is feature rich with the inclusion of LED headlamps with Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), fog lamps embedded in chrome casing, steering mounted audio controls, automatic climate controls, a double din music system with bluetooth and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on the top spec variant.
In India, the standard Ignis powered by the familiar set of engines in the 1.2 L K-Series petrol and 1.3 L Fiat sourced Multijet diesel. Both the engines come mated to a five speed manual transmission as standard with the option of Auto Gear Shift (AGS) on the top two trim levels across both the engine options.
While the model sold in Europe comes with the company’s All-Grip four wheel drive system, markets in Asia have to make do without one and have to be content with these sort of cosmetic updates.
