The new Jimny will go on sale in the United Kingdom next year, and we'll see full United Kingdom pricing and specifications closer to release.

On the inside, the Jimny gets a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel, a dual pod instrument cluster with a central MID, dashboard mounted power window switches and climate control. It measures 3,395 mm in length, 1,475 mm in width and up to 1,715 mm in height. Instead, a brand-new naturally aspirated 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol makes an appearance. The boot floor and the backs of the rear seats are coated in plastic for protection against dirt and stains.

Under the bonnet will be a 1.5-litre petrol engine that produces 100bhp and 130Nm of torque, but despite offering more displacement than the unit found in the previous model, it is 15 per cent lighter to help with fuel efficiency.

Transmission choices will include a four-speed automatic and a five-speed manual for the 1.5 petrol. Suzuki has recently stopped selling diesel-powered cars in the European market, which means the Jimny is also expected to be sold with only the petrol engine option mentioned above. As measured on outgoing NEDC fuel economy and Carbon dioxide regulations, the new Jimny claims 41.5mpg with the manual box, dipping to 37.6mpg for the auto.


While it has a ladder-frame chassic, Suzuki says it has worked on the new Jimny's on-road handling with a new steering damper on the front suspension, created to minimise steering wheel vibration. The new Jimny sticks with low range gear selector for its 4WD system to the former system to maximise its off-road adjustability.

Ground clearance comes in at 210 mm, while the latest-generation model boasts an approach angle of 37 degrees, a breakover angle of 28 degrees and a departure angle of 49 degrees. It also gets three-link rigid axle suspension for off-road agility.

Coming to safety features, the auto gets front and side airbags, a seat belt reminder system for all occupants, radar-based collision assistant, high beam assist, lane departure assist and traffic sign recognition among others. We anticipate a premium on the current car's £12,999 starting tag given the Jimny's new tech, though it should still remain a small, cheap off-roader.
