The boxy, upright design of the old Jimny has been carried over to the new model along, with tough plastic wheel arch claddings and a tailgate-mounted full size spare wheel. However, a new interior should address the refinement shortcomings of the old car and provide a low-cost alternative to the Defender, which was axed by Land Rover in 2016.  

As before, the Jimny is built on a lightweight ladder frame chassis with a low range transmission and lockable differential that should make it apt for tackling heavy mud, snow and sand. 

All models get a part-time four-wheel drive system that can be activated on the move, while a low set of gears give the 2019 Jimny the same edge as its predecessor off-road.

Like the rest of the Suzuki range, standard equipment is generous with all getting touchscreen navigation, DAB audio, reversing camera, air conditioning and alloy wheels as standard.
