Autocar has been running an Ignis on its fleet since June 2017, in which time our tests have found the car to be under-damped in certain scenarios. Autocar's road testers have claimed the suspension, which uses MacPherson struts up front and a torsion beam at the rear, “quickly runs out of travel” when there are passengers in the back seats.
Suzuki has now responded to these comments by fitting the car with new front and rear shock absorbers and different bump stops. It claims these changes make the car's ride more compliant, particularly over uneven surfaces.
The upgrades have been applied to series-production Allgrip four-wheel drive models since the end of 2017 and are available as a retrofit for owners of older models.
