  • Suzuki has revealed European specs for the next-generation Jimny, which is due on sale in It will arrive with just one engine, a litre four-cylinder petrol.

    Sep 13, Suzuki may no longer be selling cars and trucks in the U.S., but perhaps we wish they were after seeing the Suzuki Jimny, which will.

    Some models will feature plastic-coated rear seats and luggage floor — ideal for wet dogs and muddy boots. If you'd be so kind as to whitelist our site, we promise to keep bringing you great content. In the boot, Jimny owners will find litres of luggage space — 53 litres more than the outgoing model — while the side-mounted square tailgate should make for ease of loading and the carrying of wide loads. He covers the beat from testing new cars, to reporting on the ins and outs of the industry and interviewing the men and women in charge. Simple, robust and easy to clean.

    Contributor, historic racer and associate editor on our sister website Parkers. Talk about a long lifecycle…. Err, not so much.

    Read on for our full Suzuki Jimny review…. Happily, much of the recipe remains unchanged, which means a sturdy body-on-ladder-frame chassis albeit strengthened for the fourth-gen Jimny , rigid axles with coil springs at both ends, and thin tyres that send twist through a selectable 4x4 system.

    Most of the time, the Jimny operates as a rear-wheel drive car; drive is only sent to the front axle when the driver selects 4x4 via the manaul selector lever by the handbrake. The transmission also features a low-ratio transfer gear that allows for more accurate torque distribution for low-speed off-roading.

    The two factors contributing here are the suspension — fat wheels and lots of travel in the dampers means a LOT of vertical movement — and electrically assisted recirculating ball steering, which is more complex than the de rigueur rack-and-pinion set-up found in most modern cars, but easier to package into what is an extremely short space under that clamshell bonnet.

    This recipe results in a turn-in characteristic that — at first at least — feels more like a vague hint at a direction change rather than a meaningful steer in either direction. The considerable body movement pitches first at the front, with the rear following, and so you feel like you could make a sandwich between input and reaction. It's not an agile car this and feels quite off-putting if you're used to a diet of mainstream hatchbacks and family cars.

    You do get used to this, of course, and we'd even go so far as to say it contributes to the Jimny's character rather than being a black marker. The engine a 1. However, we did come away impressed with the general ride quality on the roads around Frankfurt; Suzuki has fitted eight revised rubber bushings betwixt body and frame, and this adds valuable refinement to the experience.

    Now this is where the Jimny really needs to impress. On the launch event we were presented with a dusty track featuring a handful of relatively benign inclines and descents along with some fairly extreme axle articulation we could touch the floor out of an open window at one point but the Jimny just took it all in its stride.

    Simple, robust and easy to clean. The first point to make here is you can have either a decent-sized boot or four seats, but not both.

    Carrying a quartet of quadrupeds leaves you with a paltry 85 litres of luggage room — enough for a big handbag, basically. The front seats fold down flat as well as the rears, however, and the litre space elicited from switching to two-seat mode — a useful square shape that would easily accommodate a washing machine — features an easy-to-clean plastic coating.
