The Jimny Concept

Suzuki have succeeded in making the Jimny hard to ignore and difficult to categorise.

Is it a city vehicle?

Yes. The compact dimensions, power-assisted steering, high driving position and excellent all-round visibility make this the ideal vehicle for easy driving, negotiating traffic, finding a parking place and manoeuvring with ease.

Is it a country vehicle?

Yes again. The rugged design, separate chassis with all-round coil suspension, comfortable driving position with multi-adjustable seating, and new 1.3-litre engine combine with the Drive Select 4x4 system* to make the Jimny a vehicle for all roads and all routes.

The Jimny In Detail - A new approach

Suzuki has been the number one compact-car manufacturer in Japan for the last quarter of a century, demonstrating great depth of experience and resource. That is only the first part of Suzuki's pedigree.

Suzuki has 30 years experience of building lifestyle 4x4 vehicles, and that is the second part.

The third and final part of the pedigree is the innovative Suzuki thinking which has created very individual products, from the Cappuccino sports car to the Wagon R+; from SJ and Samurai to Vitara.

With the Jimny, high-energy lifestyles can be accommodated in one vehicle. The Jimny's compact external dimensions are surprising, and given the sheer breadth of product practicality and day to day usability, all functions are carried out with immense individual style.
