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.

Overview

The revived Jimny is another instant classic, living up to its AllGrip Pro credentials with unstoppable skills off-road - it’s a shame it’s rather crude when on it.

  • Exceedingly capable off road
  • Well equipped
  • Good visibility
  • Woeful refinement
  • Feeble performance
  • Tiny boot
