2020 Suzuki Jimny Review – Specs, Size, Performance & More
Let’s find out all the details on the characteristics of the 2020 Suzuki Jimny. Small displacement engines, great off-road capability and a retro look.
The new generation of the Suzuki Jimny 2020 does not disappoint. Just take a look at the official images to immediately realize that the small Japanese 4×4 remains a point of reference among the off-road vehicles of very small dimensions. After all Suzuki has always created compact off-road vehicles that have attracted a great deal of interest in the world of off-road enthusiasts for decades. It retains the style that has always made it famous in many countries in the world, like the straight lines but is renewed in content to become modern. Indeed, in terms of style, the old Suzuki Samurai winks more than the old Jimny. It looks like a miniature Mercedes G-Class, according to some.
2020 Suzuki Jimny Interior design – New, But Classic
Basically, the 2020 Suzuki Jimny inherited once again the squared lines that have always characterized it. Indeed, we could probably even define it even more squared, as if in Suzuki had wanted to endorse the concept of off-road. On the other hand the flat bonnet, as well as the cockpit and the roof with a series of sharp edges, also help to manage more effectively the overall dimensions in case of distances far from the asphalt, in fact there are places that can be easily reached only by a Jimny, a mix of compact dimensions and good off-road skills. At the front then the new LED headlights give a touch of modernity, while the five vertical slits are a reference to the past, to the forefather.
Platform & Engine
What changes compared to the past, sorry if it is not enough, is the chassis of the 2020 Suzuki Jimny. We are faced with a frame with side members (body on frame), which is an excellent solution for cars that have to practice off-road hard. Basically, angles of attack, output, and bump are interesting as in previous generations, as well as the 4WD ALLGRIP PRO traction with adjoining reduced allows you to overcome obstacles, be they mud, fords, trees or rough terrain in general. Inside, the lines of a passenger compartment that is functional, have been renewed but also aims to offer a certain comfort to passengers.
And the engines of the Suzuki Jimny 2020? We should use the singular, to be honest since the current range of the small 4 × 4 Suzuki provides a single 1.5-liter petrol engine aspirated from 102 hp maximum power and 130 Nm of torque. For those who practice off-road, it feels a bit ‘the mancala of a small turbodiesel, capable of delivering a more generous couple and since very low regimes. The unit is combined with a five-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic transmission. Below are the main features of the version with manual transmission
