What alternatives should I consider to a used Suzuki Jimny 4x4?
Considering size, price and purpose, the Jimny has no direct rivals, but you could consider small SUVs like the MG ZS. It might not have the off-road capability of the Jimny but it’s more refined on-road. It also has more interior space and is more comfortable.
Have a look at the Dacia Duster, too. This cheap family SUV has a similar rough-and-ready approach to the Jimny. It’s not nearly so good off-road, even with the 4x4 versions, but it’s roomy, comfortable and cheap to buy used.
