I'd have said that the ride is hard not soft.

It will also vary depending on Alldrive or not. Mine's not and pretty hard...

I think it’s firmish too. It’s a fun little car to drive that’s for sure; I’ve had all sorts of quick cars, the last being a BMW M135i (335d before that) and while this is a lot slower, the way it goes around corners is great fun. Light weight rules for good handling!

I would describe the ride as `choppy` and quite firm. Whatever pressures I try in the tyres it doesn`t change so it`s a characteristic of the suspension / shocks.

I had a little Citreon C1 which was light - that was a little firm but did not have that quick bounce which can be a little uncomfortable on bad roads with the Ignis.

This is the uprated rear shock absorber. Diameter 39mm. My Ignis is a sz-t - uprated shock absorber may well be different on the AWD model.



Original for comparison

Just looked at mine. They appear to be the "new" ones. The dealer said my car was built in February 2018. Autocar reported the matter on 23 February 2018 - https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/n...e-ride-quality - but implied it was only a modification to the Allgrip model.

Thanks guys, mines on the latest shockers too. Reg June 2018

FYI had my tyres rotated a couple thou ago, and have noticed on checking shocks, that the rears now have worn on the inside very significantly (these were the front before rotation) and look illegal to me now.

Anyone else had this problem at the rear? we recently did a long fully laden trip, so maybe I should have inflated harder.

Mine is in tomorrow; I’ve asked for the upgrade. We shall see what happens.
