Suzuki revamps Jimny with classic look

Suzuki revamps Jimny with classic look”

While the Suzuki Jimny is priced in Japan from JPY 14,58,000 to JPY 19,06,200 ( ₹ 9.06 lakh - ₹ 11.85 lakh), the Jimny Sierra is priced in the range of JPY 17,60,400 to JPY 20,62,800 JPY ( ₹ 10.94 lakh - ₹ 12.82 lakh) respectively.

In SA, the Jimny is likely to be powered by a "newly developed" 1,5-litre petrol engine. The new engine is physically smaller than the old one and it's more powerful too, offering 75kW at 6000rpm (up from 62.5kW) and 130Nm of torque at 4000rpm (up from 110Nm at 4100rpm).

It has, however, retained one special feature that has earned it an nearly cult-like following the world over; the extra grunt gets channeled via your choice of either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission, and an old-school manual transfer case to either the rear wheels (2H) or all four (4H/4L) as the terrain demands, with automatic individual braking of any wheel that tries to break free (AllGrip Pro).

On the outside, the new Suzuki Jimny gets projector headlamps with daytime running LEDs, 15-inch wheels with gunmetal finish, a dual-tone colour scheme, and a five-slat grille reminiscent of the e-Survivor we saw earlier this year.

The new Jimny won't arrive in the United Kingdom until early in 2019. Dimensions are 3480mm long, 1645mm wide and 1725mm high with a wheelbase of 2250mm.

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. However, the overall design remains chunky, with function favoured over form, to enable users to operate controls and buttons even while wearing gloves. The rear seats fold down flat with the backs covered in plastic to make cleaning them easier when carrying dirty gear. The auto can be operated in 2H front-wheel-drive mode most of the time, maximising fuel economy.

Coming to safety features, the vehicle 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. 4H activates the four-wheel-drive system and 4L brings in the low-range 'box for the most challenging off-road conditions. The Jimny Sierra will come with a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine with a displacement of 1,460cc.
