Suzuki Jimny: Still ploughing a Jimny furrow

Full screen

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.

Brazil coach Tite dismissed talk that his team is the favourite to win the match against Belgium , let alone the World Cup. Ah well, there's always World Cup 2022, fellas. "These two teams are constructed to score and to win matches".

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.
