What Car? says...

Cars are pretty predictable these days, aren't they? A new model is launched, it’s facelifted after three years and then another couple of years later it’s replaced. Simple. Well, that might be the case for the majority of models, but not the Suzuki Jimny.

You see, this car’s predecessor went on sale way back in 1998 and was still available 20 years later. Sure, it may have been tweaked here and there in that time, but it remained essentially the same car. Not that the current model has changed that much; underneath the retro bodywork is the same combination of a ladder frame chassis, live axles front and rear plus long-travel coil-spring suspension.

Four-wheel drive is standard, because the Jimny is an off-roader first and foremost. That sets it apart from rivals such as the Seat Arona and Kia Stonic, although it is worth mentioning that the Dacia Duster 4x4 is even cheaper, should you need mud-plugging ability.

To find out what the Jimny is like, stick with us over the next four pages. And if you fancy this or any other new car, have a look at our New Car Buying pages for big savings on tonnes of new cars.
