2021 Suzuki Jimny: The 4 variants in detail

·7-min read

Unveiled in 2018, the new-generation Jimny was easily one of, if not THE most anticipated cars when it launched locally, with reserverations and wait times reportedly extending over a year. Much of the excitement over the compact crossover related to its cute retro design cues, meant as a throwback the Jimnys of years past. The round LED headlights embedded in the grille pay homage to the classic, first-gen model, while the clamshell hood harks back to both the second- and third-gen models. Even the placing of the taillights in the rear bumper mirrors that of the second-gen of the mini crossover.

Despite having all the trappings of a vintage vehicle, the 2021 Jimny—a 2020 carryover—still manages to be modern with plenty of contemporary embellishments including headlight washers, steering wheel controls, rearview camera, and more. Inside, a touchscreen infotainment system brings the dashboard elements together, which also houses a climate control air conditioning. Another digital display for the vehicle's settings can be found between the two orange-on-black gauges.

Powertrain-wise, the all-new Jimny is available with a newly-developed 1.5-liter K15B engine that produces 100hp and 130Nm of torque, mated to either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual or gearbox.

Utilizing a newly-developed ladder frame, the Jimny body rides on three-link rigid axle suspensions with coil springs. Meanwhile, an AllGrip Pro part-time, four-wheel-drive system with low-range transfer gear boosts its off-road capabilities. Ground clearance sits at a comfy 210mm, and approach, break over, and departure angles of 37-, 28-, and 49-degrees, respectively.

For those interested, the Suzuki Jimny costs PHP1.06 to 1.18 million brand new, with four different variants to choose from. Check out the breakdown of features for each below.
