ANOTHER blast from the past is on the way from Suzuki which is reviving the Ignis name for its new compact crossover.
The new-look Ignis will have its debut next month at the Paris Motor Show before going on sale next January.
Like the new Baleno hatchback - which Suzuki launched only a few months ago and brought back a name it last used almost 20 years ago - the Ignis will have a hybrid powertrain for added economy as well as lightweight underpinnings for the body.
Suzuki will also be revealing a revised version of the SX4 S-Cross at the Paris show.
The facelifted model - which comes with a striking new front grille and other styling revisions - features 1.0-litre and 1.4-litre Boosterjet direct-injection turbo engines that replace the existing 1.6 petrol unit.
The 1.6 DDiS engine will stay in the new S-Cross range which will be launched in the UK in mid-October.
The last time Suzuki had an Ignis in its range was eight years ago when the name was used on a medium-sized hatchback which was on sale in Britain from 2003 to 2008.
