How it copes with people and clutter

Suzuki Jimny 4x4 front space

There’s decent headroom for tall adults in the front, and while the Jimny is narrow, you shouldn’t be rubbing shoulders with the person sitting next to you.

The door bins are small, although there’s a handy cubby in front of the gearlever for stowing phones and keys. Usefully, USB and 12V sockets live above it, making charging your device a cinch. There’s also a useful ledge above the glovebox for storing other odds and ends, plus a couple of cupholders, mounted quite far back between the front seats.

Suzuki Jimny 4x4 rear space

The Jimny’s short length limits the amount of leg room in the back, but you’d be surprised how much it can offer, with two average-height adults sitting behind one another quite happily. That said, that the rear seats are flat, uncomfortable and quite close together, while access is restricted by the three-door layout.

Suzuki Jimny 4x4 seating flexibility

The rear seatbacks can be folded down in a 50/50 split, and they lie totally flat when dropped. Furthermore, they can be reclined for more comfort, although this eats into boot space. The icing on the cake is front seats that can be reclined to horizontal, making a bed if you're either short or don't mind resting your feet on the top of the dashboard. The backs of the seats are all made from plastics that can be wiped clean, which is handy when chucking muddy boots in the back, but things will slide around while you’re driving. 

Suzuki Jimny 4x4 boot space

At a minuscule 85 litres, the Jimny’s boot is less than half the size of most city cars’ with the rear seats erect. Fold them down and you’re left with a flat load area with a hard plastic base that should prove easy to clean. Even then, boot space is still less than the Volkswagen Golf’s with its rear seats in place.

The boot floor is high, so there’s no lip to heave items over, although the side-hinged tailgate will prove impractical in tight spaces.
