Few days ago in Japan, an official presentation of the compact SUV Suzuki Jimny took place. This is already the fourth generation of the Japanese. It should be noted that the car was created specifically for the local market, and for the first time the model appeared on sale in 1998.
So, the exterior of the car is brutal and executed in a classic for the brand character. For example, the grille and head optics of the SUV is very similar to the one that equipped the first generation of Jimni. Plastic elements have turned out in the style of the second generation of the car.
But the interior of the novelty will receive the design not only in one tone, well, in two contrasting hues. It’s a bit rustic, but it’s spacious. The front panel is made of durable plastic black. Several small wells have been installed on the appliance, in which a tachometer and a speedometer are located. On the back of the console is an information and media complex. All corners are straight and clear, which corresponds to the appearance of the novelty.
In Japan, the novelty will be available in the form of “key-car”, as well as in the form of a standard model. Jimny in the form of “key-car” will be equipped with a turbocharged power plant with a volume of 0.66 liters with a return of 64 hp. The second option will be moved using a standard atmospheric engine with a payoff of 102 horses. Any power plant can work in tandem with a mechanical transmission at 5 speeds, and also together with a box “automatic” for 4 steps.
Dimensions of new items are:
body length – 339.5 cm;
width – 147.5 cm;
height – 172.5 cm.
Version of the new product, which is equipped with turbocharged engine will be available in 3 trim levels. Japanese in the standard version will be available only in the base and the maximum version.
The most affordable kit-kit will be equipped with halogen optics, a set of airbags, 16-inch alloy wheels and a split-system. The next version will already have a system of keyless access to the interior, air conditioning and electric drive of the side mirrors. The most luxurious version will already receive cruise control and designer molding.
As a result, Suzuki Jimny in the version of “kei-car” will cost from 1,450 thousand yen. The top version will cost the customers 1 744.2 thousand yen. The standard performance of the SUV will cost more – from 1,764 thousand yen. “Maxima” will cost the same in 1922.4 thousand yen. It should be noted that the official dealer centers have already received the first exhibition samples of the novelty and are ready to accept preliminary applications.
In the world market, the car will only appear in the autumn. It is expected that the base version will be equipped with a 1.5 liter engine.
