Suzuki reveals first photos, specs of all-new Jimny


Suzuki has revealed the first photos of the all-new Jimny, expected to be launched in 2018. It’s about time, too, as the current Jimny has been around for 20 years—an eon in automotive cycles. The fourth-generation Jimny looks great, with just the right touches of retro design and offroad styling cues. The new Jimny’s offroad design is not just for looks, as Suzuki will retain the ladder-frame design and part-time four-wheel drive system with low-range transfer gear. The Jimny has become a legend among off-road vehicles, sometimes capable of pulling larger, more powerful vehicles out of a sticky siutation, and its seems that the new one will carry on that heritage. The suspension is still a three-link rigid axle. The interior looks just as boxy, but with some nods to modernity, such as the high-mounted touchscreen interface.

Jimny fans, as well as followers of the FJ Cruiser, Jeep Renegade and the like will no doubt be holding their breaths for this subcompact SUV.
