THE NEW JIMNY
PURPOSE IN THE MAKING
Like its predecessors, the new Jimny remains a small, lightweight 4WD vehicle. Its unique dimensions mean the Jimny can manoeuvre where larger vehicles don’t dare to go. Its light weight keeps it going strong over mud, through sand, and up steep slippery slopes where heavier vehicles tend to get stuck.
POWERED BY PURPOSE
New 1.5l engine: The new 1.5l engine generates strong torque over a wide rpm range for powerful off-road performance. Small and lightweight, it also delivers high fuel efficiency.
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.
Hill Descent Control: Automatically apply the brakes with the push of a button to maintain a fixed decent speed while you concentrate on steering without using the brake pedal or clutch.
RIGID LADDER FRAME CHASSIS
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 SPRINGS
The new Jimny has full-width rigid axles in both the front and rear to ensure superior grip on diverse surfaces. When an obstacle pushes one wheel up, the axle presses the other wheel down.
4WD WITH LOW RANGE TRANSFER GEAR
Part-time 4WD allows switching between 4WD, for optimal off-road performance, and 2WD for better fuel economy and enhanced cornering on paved roads.
AMPLE BODY ANGLES AND CLEARANCE
The Jimny can climb over obstacles and steep hills without scraping its bumpers or underbody, thanks to an ample approach angle, ramp breakover angle, departure angle, as well as plenty of ground clearance.
READY FOR ANYTHING
Expand your rear storage area by folding the back seats. Flat across, the expanded space allows crosswise storage of wide items. Screw holes provide support for optional accessories like luggage bars and utility hooks. Convenient pockets and trays keep your smartphone and gadgets within reach. USB and accessory sockets are close by to connect and power your devices.
The new Jimny comes with a range of protective advances to keep you safe out in the wild or in the city.
HIGH BEAM ASSIST
This feature automatically switches the headlights between high and low beams depending on the lighting environment and presence of other vehicles.
HILL HOLD CONTROL
This feature helps prevent backward rolling even on bumpy and uneven hills, so you can focus on controlling acceleration.
