We are proud to offer the new updated version of Suzuki Jimny. It has larger engine, it will be the 1.5-liter, 100-horsepower four-cylinder gasoline engine producing 96 pound-feet of torque. The Japanese manufacturer claims it delivers higher torque levels at virtually across the whole rpm range, especially at low revolutions “enhancing driving performance especially while driving off-road.” It’s a part-time 4WD system with a low-range transfer gear and three driving modes - 2H (2WD-high gear), 4H (4WD-high gear), and 4L (4WD-low gear), easily switchable by a shift lever directly connected to the transfer gear. The all-wheel drive is supported by a brake LSD traction control, which applies brake power to the slipping wheel when required. Despite its increased displacement, the new motor is 15 percent lighter than its predecessor and is significantly more efficient. Jimny has all new five-speed manual transmissions, and 4WD mode is switchable from a separate gear lever with high and low range.
As for the Jimny's safety, there's now automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning combined with "Weaving Alert," and also traffic sign detection — certainly high tech for a very small SUV. But it's outside the reach of any road signage where the Jimny is designed to shine, as the image gallery shows with photos of the vehicle off-road. Ground clearance is 210mm. Two folding rear seats allow for up to 377 liters of luggage space, which is 53 liters more than the old version.
