The Jimny Is Alive And Suzuki Launches “Adventure” Edition In The UK

The tiny hardcore off-roader soldiers on with Suzuki UK creating a new limited Adventure version for its fans.

You either love or hate the Suzuki Jimny which was first launched in 1998 and despite the much more advanced crossovers taking over the market, is still on sale.

Powered by a 85hp 1.3-litre petrol engine and a 4WD with a selectable low-range, this Suzuki means business when the asphalt stops. Think of it as a mini Defender or Wrangler and you get the idea. Small, nimble and painfully slow on the tarmac, the Suzuki Jimny is an absolute hoot to drive off-road.

The new Jimny Adventure is based on the range-topping SZ4 specification that includes 15-inch alloys, synthetic leather seats, air conditioning and rear privacy glass, and adds a navigation system with Bluetooth connectivity, hard spare wheel cover and a two-tone metallic White/Grey paint finish.

Priced at £14,949, the Adventure costs just £1000 more than the SZ4 before the optional £430 metallic paint is added, offering great value too. Just 200 units will be available solely in the UK market.

The old-school proper 4×4 is a dying breed and Suzuki itself has figured that out, too, as it’s successor will enter the 21st century.
