The cheap and cheerful Suzuki Jimny has continued to deliver off-road excitement for so many years that it is now considered a cult classic. This is the most compact 4x4 on the market, enabling you to switch seamlessly from adventurous pursuits in the country to the fast-paced nature of modern city driving. The Suzuki Jimny’s high ground clearance not only provides greater ability over rugged terrain but also gives you superb visibility on the roads. While its utilitarian build-quality delivers excellent reliability, the Suzuki Jimny’s recent facelift provides enduring aesthetic appeal, which will always bring a smile to your face. The no-nonsense cabin is all about functionality and perfect for those wanting an uncomplicated experience behind the wheel.
The Jimny’s charming, boxy shape is a blast from the past. A hardcore off-roader through and through, the no-nonsense design is purposeful and endearing. SZ4 models get synthetic leather seats - a must-have if you’ll be getting a little muddy.
The Jimny’s driver selectable 4WD system has 2WD, 4WD and 4WD-L models so you can prioritise off-road performance or fuel economy. The 1.3 VVT engine is responsive and loves to rev, and the Jimny’s 190mm ground clearance guarantees unstoppable performance.
The Suzuki Jimny has a rear-mounted spare wheel kit, and it comes as standard with remote central locking for safety. The boot will swallow 225-litres of luggage, or up to 816-litres of luggage if you fold down the rear seats.
Living with it
Once you have a Suzuki Jimny, you won’t be able to imagine life without it. The Jimmy’s unstoppable off-road ability makes it a winter weather maestro, and it is reasonably efficient too, with fuel economy of up to 39.3mpg combined.
