The cheap and cheerful Suzuki Jimny has continued to deliver off-road excitement for so many years that it is now considered a cult classic. This is the most compact 4x4 on the market, enabling you to switch seamlessly from adventurous pursuits in the country to the fast-paced nature of modern city driving. The Suzuki Jimny’s high ground clearance not only provides greater ability over rugged terrain but also gives you superb visibility on the roads. While its utilitarian build-quality delivers excellent reliability, the Suzuki Jimny’s recent facelift provides enduring aesthetic appeal, which will always bring a smile to your face. The no-nonsense cabin is all about functionality and perfect for those wanting an uncomplicated experience behind the wheel.
The Suzuki Jimny charms like no other. Its boxy shape, round headlights and wheel arch extensions give it a real sense of character and purpose. Make no mistake, it might be cute, but it’s also a seriously capable off-road machine.
On road, the Jimny is quiet and civilised. Off road, it transforms into an all-terrain hero with selectable 4WD modes and hill descent control. Cruise control and satellite navigation come as standard on SZ5 models for your convenience.
It’s a two-door 4x4 with a compact, tall body. As such, it’ll easily transport four people in comfort or two with the rear seats down. Operate in two-seat mode, and the Jimny offers up a stonking 816-litres of boot space.
Living with it
The 1.5 petrol engine is flexible and clean, and you can pair it with a manual or automatic transmission to suit your driving style. SZ5 models are extra special, with automatic LED projector headlamps and rear privacy glass for a touch of class.
