Big interest in new Suzuki Jimny 4×4

Fourth-generation traditional SUV on sale in early 2019.

The new Suzuki Jimny is on display at the Paris motor show ahead of its UK debut early in 2019 – a now rare thoroughly traditional small SUV.

Suzuki is reporting major interest among potential buyers of the 4×4, with unprecedented numbers signing up to a website detailing the car. Demand for the Jimny is likely to exceed supply from Japan, where the new car has already proven very popular.

The fourth-generation Jimny retains much of the ‘proper off-road’ DNA of its predecessor, including a body-on-ladder frame and a part-time all-wheel-drive system, operating in rear-wheel mode under normal motoring and including a low-range mode.

The retro-look body style of square angles and creases is also retained, with no move to the more aerodynamic shells of virtually all other small SUVs on the market. Even the round headlamps and separate indicators are still there.

Simple yet robust specification

When it arrives in UK showrooms the Jimny will be offered with only one engine option, a 1.5-litre petrol unit of 102hp that replaces the 1.3-litre version of the previous model.

With the five-speed manual gearbox (a four-speed auto is an alternative) the Jimny will reach 62mph in just over 12 seconds, returning combined cycle fuel economy of around 36mpg and CO2 emissions of 178g/km.

   

Some modernity has invaded the interior, which now boasts Suzuki’s standard seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system. But generally, the styling remains robust to cope with a tough working life.

The boot space extends to 377 litres with the rear seats folded, 58 more than the previous Jimny. But when used to carry four people, just 85 litres is available, accessed through a side-opening tailgate.

The Executivecondominium will be driving the new Jimny next month – watch out for our full review.
