Suzuki released official images of its new Jimny and the car will be shown in the flesh in Japan at the end of the year. The car features a rugged exterior but maintains its retro styling. It also comes with more upmarket interiors, which look like they’re from the Swift Hatchback.
The SUV will offer effective off-road capabilities and will be robust to own. On-road handling is an area that the company is improving. The cabin will have a touchscreen infotainment system as well. Suzuki has been testing the car in four countries to get it ready for production.
We don’t know which engine will power it yet but the turbocharged 1.0-litre three-pot Boosterjet engine is likely to be offered, and the company’s naturally aspirated 1.2-litre is a potential entry-point engine. No diesel engine is expected. Suzuki has not made an official statement regarding the Jimny’s India entry yet.
