Ahead of its debut next month, the auto maker has officially revealed the images of the fourth generation Jimny except the engine specifications.
Suzuki has just launched a teaser site for the upcoming new Suzuki Jimny in their home country of Japan with the highlight of July 2018 being its "debut" date. This vehicle here is the work of X-Tomi Design and it is essentially the new Jimny made into a convertible. No diesel engine is expected as the brand recently confirmed it has pulled all diesel options from its current line-up.
To be very exact, Suzuki planned to go up with this mini-SUV in Tokyo Motor Show in 2018 but leaks from some reliable sources pushed them to unveil the photos of this upcoming vehicle in first place.
Now the Jimny might be a utilitarian, but it still gets plenty of features like LED headlights, air-conditioning, push-button start and alloy wheels. The mini-SUV will finally receive the much awaited update after 20 years ever since the last Jimny was introduced. Although there will be an extensive palette of funky, youthful exterior colors, the unashamedly boxy shape remains and it will also be one of very few SUVs to still store the spare wheel on the rear tailgate.
While Maruti Suzuki is yet to greenlight the fourth generation Jimny for the Indian market, there's a good chance that the long wheelbase version of the SUV arriving here in due course of time with India becoming a production hub for the off-roader.
Apparently, Suzuki's development of the new Jimny has been based around the feedback from existing owners who weren't so fussed about on-road handling, but wanted something that was capable when the going got rough. Transmission duties are likely to be carried out by either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic gearbox.
