In an alternate universe, there are no 25-year import restrictions and you, a freedom-loving American, are able to wheel around in the 2019 Suzuki Jimny as you please, climbing rocks and blasting across the beach with rainbows in your heart and a smile in your soul. There’s only one problem: you probably shouldn’t…
Not only does the 2019 Suzuki Jimny have the same adorable toughness on the inside as it does on its exterior, but there’s so much cool functionality in this cab and check out those gauge clusters! It looks almost exactly like a Suzuki Samurai with an airbag.
Suzuki’s very first official photos of the 2019 Suzuki Jimny include a picture of the off-roader’s chassis, and there’s good news: it looks like the little Japanese billygoat has the goods to continue the Jimny’s reputation of being an off-road monster.
I love riding around in a loaded Range Rover as much as the next well-dressed fox hunting enthusiast, but there’s something deeply satisfying about watching the humblest of sport utilities stick it to aristocrat of off-roading.
The JDM Suzuki Jimny instantly captures the heart of anyone that sees it. Just look at it. It’s a tiny off-road vehicle you could probably fit in a backpack. They’re adorable.
The current Suzuki Jimny is as close to a modern day World War II Jeep as exists on this earth, which is to say: it’s an off-road god. And if that’s not enough to have you lusting over the Japanese 4x4 masterpiece, just look at Indian Autos Blog’s renderings of the 2018 model. It’s perfection.
Who says only gigantic trucks get to do tugs-of-war?
60 off-road racing teams went head-to-head last week in South Africa’s Bridgestone 4x4 Club Challenge. This Jimny lugging an awning meant for an “medium-sized” truck looks like a puppy trying to run with a giant log between its teeth. Adorable! Image: Bridgestone.
