What is a Suzuki Jimny?
First launched in 1998, the Suzuki Jimny is a rugged, yet compact, 4x4 with good off-road capabilities at an affordable price.
Quirky and distinctive, the Jimny holds its own against similar rivals such as the Fiat Panda 4x4 and the Dacia Duster. Currently available in a hardtop 1.3 litre petrol version, the Jimny is equally at home around town or on the odd bit of tougher terrain.
Well-equipped, the new Jimny offers standard safety features including collision warning, automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning.
Running costs are average and fuel economy is reasonable, offering around 38mpg. However, it’s not as environmentally friendly as some of its rivals, with higher than average CO2 emissions of around 184g/km.
