The long awaited Suzuki Jimny will this Saturday return to Australian dealerships as part of a dual Australia Day launch alongside the new Suzuki Vitara.
The all-new Jimny continues the core character of the one-and-only, small, lightweight 4X4 vehicle following nearly 50 years of worldwide popularity.
Featuring a rugged exterior and interior, the new Jimny is built on a tough ladder frame body and equipped with a 4WD system with a low range transfer gear, which can be easily switched from 2H (2WD-high gear), 4H (4WD-high gear) and 4L (4WD-low gear).
Heritage design elements have been carefully included in the new design, including round head lamps with independent indicators, front grille with vertical openings, horizontal slit-like design and finally, gathered rear combination lamps.
On the safety front, the most technically advanced Jimny to date comes fitted with Dual Sensor Brake Support (DSBS), hill descent control, lane departure warning, six airbags, high beam assist, Electronic Stability Control (ESP), reversing camera and LED headlights all fitted as standard equipment.
Motivating the compact 4×4 is a 1.5-litre engine developing 75kW and drive through a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic.
