Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2
The entry-level Jimny is a couple of thousands pounds cheaper the larger, if not quite so capable, four-wheel-drive Dacia Duster. There are only two trim levels for the Jimny, which means that the top-spec model is roughly the same price as the entry-level Seat Arona.
Fuel economy isn’t great for a car of this size, either; regardless of which gearbox you choose, you’re likely to average 40mpg at the most. CO2 emissions are high at 156g/km, although insurance and servicing costs are likely to be more reasonable.
