Suzuki Jimny: Still ploughing a Jimny furrow

2019 Suzuki Jimny Cabin

The global variant, Jimny Sierra, comes loaded with a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder 1,460cc engine.

With a turning circle of 4.9m, a ladder frame and a three-link rigid axle with coil springs at the front and the rear, the new Suzuki Jimny continues to be a proper off-roader.

As revealed by some of the leaked brochures from last month, the small 4x4 will be available in two model options - a Kie-spec Jimny and a bigger and better equipped Jimny Sierra.

The new Suzuki Jimny - arriving in the United Kingdom in 2019 - promises to be as able as the Jimny always has been, but with better dynamics and a new 1.5 litre petrol engine. The model, as reported earlier, will be sold with a 660cc petrol motor for the Japanese domestic market. This naturally aspirated four-cylinder K15B engine makes 75 kW and 130 N.m (up from the 63 kW and 110 N.m offered by the outgoing 1,3-litre), and will again be offered with the choice of a five-speed manual gearbox or four-speed automatic transmission. We look forward to doing just that when we get a new Jimny for review. The new Jimny sticks with low range gear selector for its 4WD system to the former system to maximise its off-road adjustability. Much of the design appears similar to that applied to the latest Mercedes-Benz G-class, such as the squared-off wheel arches and tail-lights located low on the bumper. It features 15-inch wheels as well as the trademark spare wheel mounted on the tailgate. Suzuki claims that it's still a functional and straightforward environment though, and that the switches are all large enough to operate while wearing gloves.

We saw England play today, they're compact and have a few remarkable players, they are strong at set plays. In the second half, we dictated play and created half-chances. "He congratulated us on a very good game".

In terms of dimension, the Suzuki Jimny measures 3,395 mm in length, 1,475 mm in width, and 1,725 in height, while offering a ground clearance of 205 mm.

Inside, the auto comes with 377 litres of boot space - 53 litres more than in the last model - and all the materials used make it easy to maintain if it gets dirty.

Alongside off-road assistance features such as hill hold and descent control, the new Jimny also gets automatic emergency braking, six airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning and high beam assist.
