Gen Suzuki Jimny And Jimny Sierra Launched In Japan

Full screen

"The Jimny is synonymous with the Suzuki brand and to have an all-new model on its way is something worth talking about".

The new Suzuki Jimny is on its way to South Africa, with a local launch pencilled in for November 2018.

Replacing the 1.3-liter that we've found underpowered in our test drive of the previous generation, the 1.5-liter in the all-new Jimny delivers "ample torque at low revolutions".

This new fourth-generation Jimny will replace a vehicle now 20 years into its lifespan, though it doesn't boast a modernising look.

It seems likely the new Jimny will cost more than the £13k starting point of the current Jimny. The boxy profile with large windows and small pillars maximises visibility, while the 15-inch alloy wheels are housed in chunky cladded wheelarches.

US Service Member Killed In Apparent Insider Attack
The ambush occurred in southern Afghanistan, U.S. military officials said in a statement without being more specific. It added thatthe name of the deceased service member was being withheld until next of kin is notified.

Klamathon Fire kills 1; dozen wildfires dot California
Cal Fire said one person was killed in the Klamathon Fire, which is burning Siskyou County, an area located near the OR border. The Holiday fire in Goleta , California, north of Santa Barbara, grew rapidly overnight and is now at a size of 100 acres.

At 3,645mm from the front bumper to the spare wheel cover the new Jimny is exactly the same length as before. Ground clearance is 210mm.

Suzuki says the interior has been designed with function and form with all controls usable while wearing gloves.

Compared to the current car's 1.3-litre engine it's more powerful, boasting 101bhp and 130Nm of torque from 4,000rpm. This naturally aspirated four-cylinder K15B engine makes 75 kW and 130 N.m (up from the 63 kW and 110 N.m offered by the outgoing 1,3-litre), and will again be offered with the choice of a five-speed manual gearbox or four-speed automatic transmission.

Economy figures are pegged at 41.5mpg and 37.6mpg for the manual and automatic respectively, with Carbon dioxide figures of 154g/km and 170g/km. 4H activates the four-wheel-drive system and 4L brings in the low-range 'box for the most challenging off-road conditions. The suspension is a rigid axle setup with coil springs both front and rear. 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). New safety systems have also been added including automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and traffic sign detection, the latter being a first for any Suzuki model.

Full UK equipment and prices will arrive closer to the Jimny going on sale here next year.
