Are you ready to conquer the wild? The evergreen Suzuki Jimny has been reinvented for a new generation, bringing the classic mini 4x4 right up to date. You’ll find the same classic virtues with a host of new features to improve performance, safety and practicality.
From first glance it’s obvious that the 2021 Jimny is serious about its off-road fun. The rugged exterior screams practicality. Upright A-pillars and a flat bonnet optimise visibility, and chunky, moulded wheel arches and bumpers protect the bodywork. It’s a look that is both practical and appealing – Top Gear calls it “instantly desirable.”
Under the skin, a proven ladder chassis boasts Suzuki’s TECT concept, with curved main sections to improve strength and rigidity, and three-link suspension maximises grip. Ride height is a generous 210mm, while Hill Descent Control can be activated so the driver can focus on steering. The Electronic Stability Programme detects wheel slip and compensates, helping the driver stay in control. What Car says “You can’t fault its capabilities when you get it onto the muddy stuff.”
It’s the ideal urban ride too. What Car says “The Jimny’s high driving position gives you a good view of the road ahead...visibility at junctions is excellent.” The Jimny’s controls have been designed to work with gloved hands, including the infrared 7” touch-screen display. SRS front, side and curtain airbags are available. Interior space is bigger than ever, and resin-coated surfaces are easy to clean.
What Car concludes: “The Jimny can’t be beaten in this price range.”
