What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For It's cheap, rugged and good off-road

Against The quality of the on-road ride and handling is awful and space is limited inside

Verdict Very cheap and tough, but no other redeeming features

Go for… JLX

Avoid… JLX soft-top

Suzuki Jimny 4x4
  • 1. Look out for fluid leaks from automatic gearboxes
  • 2. Driveshafts can wear out quickly
  • 3. The cabin is cramped and uncomfortable; the ride is hard and bouncy, too
  • 4. Head- and legroom are so cramped in the back it’s better to treat the car as a two-seater
  • 5. Go for later, uprated 1.3-litre versions
