The all-new Jimny has been confirmed for the Australian market.

The small, lightweight Jimny features a functional exterior and interior, ladder frame body, advanced ALLGRIP PRO 4WD system and a four-cylinder 1.5L engine designed to allow for off-road driving performance as well as enhanced fuel economy.

Other confirmed specifications include high beam assist, daytime running lights (DRLs) and multimedia satellite navigation featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition, the next generation Jimny will also feature hill-hold and hill-decent controls as standard.

Safety specs include front dual, side and certain airbags, Dual Sensor Brake Support and Electronic Stability Control (ESP).

Suzuki Australia General Manager – Automobile, Mr. Michael Pachota said the return of the legendary 4WD into the Australian market will be sure to impress.

“The Jimny is synonymous with the Suzuki brand and to have an all-new model on its way is something worth talking about. The Australian landscape will be a true test for the iconic 4WD and I have no doubt it will rise to the challenge.

“I am very excited and highly anticipating the return of this legendary off-road compact SUV, in its all-new guise, to complement our already strong line-up of Suzuki vehicles in Australia.” said Mr. Pachota.

The all-new Jimny is due to arrive on Australian shores towards the end of the year, with sales to commence in Q1 2019.
