Ownership cost

What used Suzuki Jimny 4x4 will I get for my budget?

Because the Jimny has been on sale for the best part of 20 years, there are examples out there to suit all budgets.

You can find early or higher-mileage examples for less than £1000, but we’d suggest you spend £3500-£4500 to get yourself a decent 2005 and onwards post-facelift car with the improved engine and better interior. Around £7000 will find you a 2009 Jimny, while newer 2012 cars will set you back £10,000 or more. The latest examples start to look a little steep at £14,500 – particularly when prices for the brand-new Jimny start at just £1000 more.

How much does it cost to run a Suzuki Jimny 4x4?

In terms of daily running costs, the Jimny will be thirstier than other, more modern small SUV rivals, but considering it has plenty of heavy off-road mechanicals and it slips through the air with all the grace of a garden shed, this is to be expected. It has a combined NEDC fuel economy figure of 38.7mpg and annual road tax will be £195 for the manual or £230 for the automatic version.

Any Jimny registered after 1 April 2017 will cost you £140 a year because it falls under a revised tax system.

Jimny service intervals are annual or every 9000 miles. You can take out a pay monthly Suzuki Service Plan if your car is under six years old, or you could take advantage of fixed-price servicing if your vehicle is over three years old. A 25-point service is £129, while a larger 35-point service is £259.
