The fourth-generation Suzuki Jimny has been officially revealed and is soon to be officially released globally. The compact and rugged off-roader retains a ladder frame and dual-range 4x4 drivetrain, still making it one of the world’s only true compact off-roader.
The new generation Jimny remains faithful to the original Suzuki Jimny design of 1970 – with some calling it classically retro. Showcasing its classic boxy, two-door exterior. Available in eight new paint colours, the 2019 Jimny will be available in Kinetic Yellow hero hue, Jungle Green, Silky Silver Metallic, Brisk Blue Metallic and Chifon Ivory Metallic.
The interior of the Jimny centres around a compact four-seat cabin. Remaining simple and highly utilitarian, the 2019 Suzuki Jimny has gained modern-day features. The all-new dash incorporates a rectangular instrument binnacle, a large central touch-screen and multifunction steering wheel.
The 2019 Suzuki Jimny offers two model variants – the standard Jimny, offering a 660c turbo triple, and the wider Jimny Sierra powered by a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine and features side steps as well as wheel-arch extensions to match matt-black front and rear bumpers. Both models will be offered with either five-manual and four-speed auto transmissions.
While Suzuki Australia cannot yet confirm whether the new Jimny will be available or not, it should be confirmed soon.
