Suzuki’s mini-4×4 Jimny can go anywhere

The first video and action shots of the all-new Suzuki Jimny have been released, revealing the go-anywhere ability of the 4th generation small off-roader.

As you can see in these images shot in moody, icy landscape by Australian photographer Benjamin Hardman, who also appears in the promo video, the new Suzuki Jimny will deliver hard-core levels of wheel articulation and off-road traction.

The 2019 Suzuki Jimny – only the fourth all-new version since April 1970 and the first full redesign since 1998 – will be powered by a cheap ‘n’ cheerful 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder gasoline unit called the K15B. It’s tuned for bang on 100 horsepower and 96 lb-ft of torque, and comes with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed auto transmission, both of which come with a high/low transfer gear ratio selector to make it suitable for steep and slippery off-road action.

The off-roading ability of Jimny is characterized by a rigid ladder frame and 3-link rigid axle suspension at both ends paired with Suzuki’s dual-range ALLGRIP PRO four-wheel drive system with low-range.

At the same time, major tech advances will include the availability of a 7.0-inch touch-screen projecting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, high-beam assist, daytime running lights, hill-hold, hill decent control, dual front, front-side and side curtain airbags, and autonomous emergency braking (AEB).
