Few incoming cars excite us quite as much as the 2019 Suzuki Jimny. It looks like a miniature Mercedes G-Class, it’s small and light, and with an anticipated starting price of around £15,000, it’s very affordable.
Importantly, it can still do the rough stuff. It’s based around a tough ladder chassis, it has three-link rigid axle suspension and a low-range transfer gear. It’s not all old-school tech either, with a clever brake-based traction control system helping the distribute torque as necessary when you’re on a particularly slippery surface. Approach and departure angles are improved over the outgoing Jimny, too.
But those are just words. What you really need to do is watch the plucky Jimny tackling the rough stuff. We can now do this thanks to the b-roll cut you see above, which features just over four minutes of the pint-sized SUV getting very muddy and showing off some lovely flex.
We could watch it all day!
