The 5 things we know about the 2019 Suzuki Jimny

The 5 things we know about the 2019 Suzuki Jimny

We had a bit of a peek at the new Jimny a few weeks ago, but now Suzuki has delivered more detail ahead of the new Jimny arriving in the United Kingdom in 2019. Like its predecessor, the new Jimny is built on a ladder-frame chassis, but it now has additional crossmembers to increase rigidity.

Suzuki has just confirmed the 2019 Suzuki Jimny will go on sale in Australia during the first quarter of next year.

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. The model, as reported earlier, will be sold with a 660cc petrol motor for the Japanese domestic market. There will be two transmissions to choose from, a five-speed manual and a four-speed automatic with low-range gearing of 2.002 and 2.644, respectively. Depending on the gearbox fitted, the Jimny will have a top speed of 90mph with the manual and 87mph with the automatic. In comparison, the Jimny Sierra is bigger in all aspects, measuring 3,550 mm in length, 1,645 mm in width, and 1,730 mm height, along with a ground clearance of 210 mm. Other safety features include six airbags, hill hold and hill descent control, tyre pressure monitoring system, and selectable four-wheel drive with low-range. Adding to the off-road character of the Jimny, the rear axle of the mini-SUV benefits from three-link suspension with coil springs. Much of the design appears similar to that applied to the latest Mercedes-Benz G-class, such as the squared-off wheel arches and tail-lights located low on the bumper.

The auto measures 3,480 mm in length, 1,645 mm in width and 1,725 mm in height with a wheelbase of 2,250 mm.

Southgate's ability to bring together a coherent group and his leadership style has brought widespread admiration at home, where it has been joked he should lead Brexit negotiations.

The Jimny's interior, meanwhile, gains modern features such as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth. Suzuki claims that it's still a functional and straightforward environment though, and that the switches are all large enough to operate while wearing gloves.

Inside, the vehicle comes with 377 litres of boot space - 53 litres more than in the last model - and all the materials used make it easy to maintain if it gets dirty.

Safety kit has also been improved, with autonomous emergency braking, six airbags, lane departure warning and high beam assist a massive upgrade over the current vehicle.
