Suzuki Jimny: The small but terrible off-roader

SUZUKI’S iconic off-roader, the Jimny, debuted its latest version in the Philippines last March 8, 2019. The all-new Suzuki Jimny returned to the boxier styling like that of its earlier predecessors but designed with a modern twist.

This little Japanese off-roader was built to tackle the harshest weather and terrain with its practical exterior design. The body alone functions best in off-road conditions with its small dimensions and optimized bumpers that give the Jimny an advantage over bigger off-road vehicles.

From its tough square form to color variations, the exterior design of the Jimny was made to look simple yet beautiful and functional. Although the Suzuki Jimny is now on its fourth generation, many of its design elements still take after its past versions.

The simple round headlamps and independent indicators, horizontal slit-like design, front grille with vertical openings, clamshell bonnet, and rear combination lamps gathered at rear bumper are the heritage designs that make the current Jimny look familiar but distinct.

The same robust theme continues inside the all-new Suzuki Jimny. Like its exterior design, the interior also borrowed styling elements from earlier generations. Its stylish black interior and controls are designed for quick and easy operation that cause little to no distraction when driving.

Everything from its leather covered steering wheel, ride-in assist grip, nine-inch touchscreen multimedia audio unit to off-road function displays on GLX variants are crafted with meticulous details to support serious off-roading.

To guarantee an authentic robust performance, the Jimny is powered by a K15B engine that promises unrivaled agility and delivers a powerful torque for off-road driving. Its engine is lightweight, compact and fuel-efficient.

The all-new Suzuki Jimny with the same features of a ladder frame and front and rear live axle suspension with coil springs as before are what define a serious off-road vehicle. It’s as popular as ever among enthusiasts for it can take on nature’s challenges. Equipped with everything an off-road driver needs to conquer the wild, it’s this small Japanese off-roader that can tread through any terrain and remain the toughest.
