Five weeks after images of the new Suzuki Jimny leaked online thanks to an internal company presentation, Indian Autos Blog has taken those pictures, sharpened them up and given them some color to provide us with an accurate look at the four-gen model.
Rendered in three-door guise, the similarities between the new Jimny and the outgoing model are immediately noticeable. For example, it includes a small front grille with vertical slats but now has round headlights, turn signals, and fog lights. The proportions of the new car also look similar to the old one but the body panels are noticeably less curved and feature sharper and more pointed corners.
In these renderings, the utilitarian design of the Jimny is strengthened with black wheel arches, black bumpers and a black front grille designed to enhance the vehicle’s ruggedness.
Sitting beneath the overhauled body of the new Jimny will be a ladder frame and the firm’s AllGrip Pro all-wheel drive system. The 110 hp, 1.0-liter engine from the Baleno is expected to be the sole powertrain option.
The 2018 Suzuki Jimny will premiere on October 25 at the Tokyo Motor Show.
