Suzuki Jimny officially announced

Suzuki officially unveiled the next generation Jimny in Japan.

Suzuki has confirmed that the all-new Suzuki Jimny will be sold in Australia. It measures 3,395 mm in length, 1,475 mm in width and up to 1,715 mm in height. The Suzuki Jimny has been priced in a range of 14,58,000-19,06,200 JPY (Rs 9.08 lakh to Rs 11.87 lakh), whereas the Jimny Sierra has will be available at 17,60,400-20,62,800 JPY (Rs 10.94 lakh to Rs 12.82 lakh). Both versions share the same 2,250 mm wheelbase. There's a tall, boxy bodyshape with a clamshell bonnet and seven-slot front grille, while the retro round headlights and tailgate-mounted spare wheel are as practical as they are charming.

While many SUVs have gone down the "soft-roader" path, the Jimny looks like it will continue in the tradition of its predecessors. If you are a fan of Maruti/Suzuki's philosophy of tackling off-road terrain - combine a lightweight, but tough chassis with a high-revving petrol engine and a simple but effective off-road drivetrain -, the Jimny should rank high on your list. The centre aircon vents are similar to the ones seen in the Ignis, while the automatic climate control, steering and few other bits have been carried over from the new Swift. Other technological advances include hill descent control and hill hold, along with stability control and side and curtain airbags.

The Jimny employs a 0.66-litre three-cylinder petrol engine produces 64 PS at 6,500 rpm and 103 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm.

The all-new Suzuki Jimny will run a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine which replaces the old car's 1.3-litre four-pot. Suzuki will be exporting only the latter to the export markets and it's the same motor that is also set to power the Indonesia-spec new-gen Suzuki Ertiga.

It has, however, retained one special feature that has earned it an nearly cult-like following the world over; the extra grunt gets channeled via your choice of either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission, and an old-school manual transfer case to either the rear wheels (2H) or all four (4H/4L) as the terrain demands, with automatic individual braking of any wheel that tries to break free (AllGrip Pro). Suzuki's Allgrip Pro AWD system is offered as standard.
