New Suzuki Jimny showed on official photosJune 18, 2018
The Japanese manufacturer revealed the appearance and the data on the fourth generation SUV. The premiere of the model in the version for the Japanese market will take place early next month.
Recall, a compact Suzuki Jimny SUV of the current generation entered the market in 1998 and lasted on the conveyor until this year. In the exterior of Jimny a new generation of cardinal changes did not occur – it retained the box-like stylistics of its predecessors. For example, the configuration of the radiator grille and head optics is based on the first Jimny LJ10, while the body design absorbed some features of the second-generation SJ30. By the way, for the body is available two-color scheme of color.
When developing the interior, the creators apparently were guided by two key principles – simplicity and practicality. The black plastic front panel, divided into two separate dials, is equipped with a similar stylistic design of the screen of the infotainment system.
In technical terms, the new Jimny continues to be an off-roader: a separate spar frame, continuous axles, dependent suspension, transfer case with a downshift and a pluggable four-wheel drive.
Suzuki Jimny’s performance range for the Japanese market includes two engines: a turbocharged three-cylinder R6 with a volume of 660 cubic centimeters (64 hp and 95 Nm) and an atmospheric volume of 1.5 liters (Jimny Sierra), the return of which is not indicated. In combination with both engines, a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission operates.
A small motor will be offered in three trim levels of Jimny: XG, XL and XC. Jimny Sierra will have two complete sets of JL and JC. The basic version of XC equipment includes front and side airbags, halogen head optics, air conditioning, 16-inch stamped wheels. The list of XL equipment is complemented by fog lights, climate control, access to the interior without a key, and electrical adjustments to exterior mirrors. The XC version has LED optics with a washbasin, cruise control and alloy wheels.
Suzuki Jimny Sierra JL is equipped with front and side airbags, climate control, electrical side mirrors, access to the salon without a key, 15-inch stamped wheels and fog lights. The JC option receives LED optics with a washbasin, cruise control and cast wheels. The Jimny Sierra also has wheel arch extensions made of unpainted plastic.
In addition, the new Suzuki Jimny has a Safety Support system with a camera and lasers that recognizes obstacles in the front of the car and can brake if necessary. The operating speed range of the system is 5-100 km / h, although the recognition of pedestrians operates at speeds up to 60 km / h.
