Stay focused on what matters most

In the Jimny, there’s little to distract you from driving.
Its stylish black interior is humble yet handsome, and controls are designed for quick and easy operation even when wearing gloves.

Down-to-earth design

Relish the sheer pleasure of simple, straightforward and sensible design.
Colours are minimal. Every detail is thoughtfully and attractively crafted to support serious off-roading.

Pack your gear for adventure

Whether navigating the urban jungle or exploring off the beaten track, the Jimny offers ample space and practical storage to accommodate every need

Depend on robust authenticity

Uncompromising features define the Jimny as a serious off-road machine.
A robust ladder frame, three ample body angles, 3-link rigid axle suspensions with coil springs and 4WD with a low-range transfer gear.
Equipped with a 1.5 litre engine, it takes you wherever you want to go with unrivalled agility and powerful torque when you need it most.

Rigid ladder frame

From the very first generation, the Jimny has always featured a ladder frame that offers a solid foundation for serious off-road performance.


3-link rigid axle suspension with coil spring

Settle for nothing less than full-width rigid axles in both the front and rear, which help the Jimny ensure superior grip on diverse surfaces. When an obstacle pushes one wheel up, the axle presses the other wheel down to increase tyre contact in rough road conditions.

4WD with low range transfer gear

At your command, the Jimny adapts to every situation. Shift the transfer lever to the 4L mode when the going gets tough for maximum torque and traction. Let ALLGRIP PRO satisfy your adventurous mind with its on and off-road mastery.

1.5 litre engine

Its robust 1.5L engine generates strong torque throughout a wide rpm range for powerful off-road performance. Small and lightweight, it also delivers high fuel efficiency.

Ample body angles and clearance

Push outdoor exploration to the limit with an ample departure angle, ramp breakover angle, approach angle and ground clearance that let you handle steep slopes, sharp descents and obstacles without scraping the bumpers or underbody of the Jimny.

Brake LSD Traction Control

If two wheels diagonal from each other lose grip while you’re travelling over slippery surfaces, this feature is designed to automatically brake the slipping wheels and redistribute torque to the other two wheels, allowing the Jimny to make its escape.

Hill Hold Control

Move upward and onward when starting on steep slopes. Even on bumpy slopes that vary on the right and left sides, this feature helps prevent rearward rolling so you can focus on controlling acceleration.

Hill Descent Control

On tricky descents, with a push of a button, the system is designed to automatically apply the brakes and maintain a fixed speed so you can concentrate on steering without using the brake pedal or clutch.

Safeguard yourself and others

Safety is a priority whether trekking through the wilderness or commuting in the city.
Thanks to the protective advances of Suzuki Safety Support*, you can always drive with peace of mind.
*Suzuki Safety Support is Suzuki’s preventative safety technology that helps the driver avoid accidents and supports the driver to have peace of mind during every day driving.


When moving, the Jimny uses two sensors—a monocular camera and a laser sensor—to determine if there is a risk of collision with a forward vehicle or pedestrian. Upon detecting a potential collision, the car acts in any of the following three ways, depending on the situation.

High Beam Assist

Enjoy safer, more relaxing and courteous night driving with this feature designed to automatically switch the headlights between high and low beams depending on the lighting environment and presence of other vehicles*.

*When travelling 40km/h or faster with the headlamp switch in auto position.

Weaving Alert

After a long day, it helps to have some support. If the vehicle is “wandering” due to your drowsiness or fatigue, this system is designed to issue audio and visual warnings to keep you alert.

Lane Departure Warning

The Jimny helps you stay on track. Should you unintentionally stray from your lane while driving at high speed, this feature is designed to vibrate the steering wheel and issue a visual warning to encourage safer driving.

Traffic sign recognition

Stay calm and informed. When the system detects traffic signs such as speed limit and no passing signs, it shows them on the meter display to help you remember which road signs the car has passed.

Note: There is a limit to the ability of the monocular camera and laser sensor to detect obstacles and lanes, and control the vehicle. Please do not rely on the system: always drive safely. Each function operates in different vehicle speeds and conditions.
