NEW FACE FOR JIMNY

| 15/11/2012 | 0 Comments

For the 43rd anniversary of Suzuki’s first compact SUV, the 2013 model of highly popular Jimny receives a number of exterior and interior design updates to help modernise appearance whilst maintaining the long established tough and capable reputation.

 

Jimny has a neat and practical look and since sales began in 1998, it has accumulated a loyal following of repeat customers who enjoy a quirky alternative to a supermini or crossover SUV.  The Jimny exceeds expectations off road whilst still being more than capable in any urban area, ideal for customers who want the best of both worlds.

 

Design revisions include a new front bumper and grille design, new design bonnet shape incorporating central air intake as well as repositioning of the front fog lamps. The new front bumper design has resulted in a slight increase in overall length of 30mm to 3,675mm.

 

For the interior, a new seat fabric trim has been adopted, all models have new design front and rear headrests as well as ISOFIX child seat mountings fitted as standard to the rear seats.

The all-alloy 16-valve 1.3-litre engine benefits from variable valve timing, ensuring lively performance, and strong fuel economy. Maximum output is 85PS, with 81lbft of torque delivered at 4,100rpm. A flat torque curve means near maximum torque is delivered from as low as 2,500rpm, the push-button selectable four-wheel drive and high and low gear ratios giving Jimny the kind of flexible driving character and pulling power that are integral to a successful SUV.
