All-New 2019 Suzuki Jimny Is Boxy Inside And Out (Updated)

Forget about prototypes and renderings trying to solve the design ‘mystery’ behind the all-new Suzuki Jimny, because the small SUV has just been spotted without a trade of camouflage.

On top of that, there are multiple examples sitting together behind Suzuki’s factory, finished in a variety of shades, looking just about ready to be shipped to dealers all over the world.

Beneath its boxy design lies a traditional ladder-on-frame chassis, which along with an all-wheel drive system should make the new Jimny a pretty capable small off-roader, going where no Nissan Juke would ever dare to go.

Overall, the upcoming Jimny seems happy to depart from conventional softened exterior designs. One might even call it retro-looking, which it actually is. We can also tell that the new model still slightly resembles the old Jimny, with a table spoon of Mercedes G-Class and a pinch of Jeep Renegade. Its quirky, yet rugged appearance should definitely attract lots of fans, however it’s unlikely that such an unconventional design would ultimately lead to conventional sub-compact crossover sales numbers – something the Japanese automaker is probably at peace with.

The all-new Jimny is also expected to feature some type of semi-autonomous braking technology (no Adaptive Cruise Control though) according to Creative311, as well as LED headlights.

A splash of simplicity

The cabin of the 2019 Suzuki Jimny, while it looks highly utilitarian, does gain modern-day features such as a touchscreen infotainment display, which looks just like the one in the Suzuki Swift.

The interior image also reveals the presence of climate control, a multi-function steering wheel, an automatic transmission and not much else. We did notice how some buttons are extremely large, probably so they can be easily operated while wearing gloves.

A small engine range

Power is expected to come from a base 1.2 liter naturally aspirated gasoline engine, while a 1.0-liter turbocharged ‘Boosterjet’ three-cylinder is believed to be a step up in some markets. The latter is rumored to have a maximum output of 110 HP, as well as 170 Nm (125 lb-ft) of torque.

In the end, what these images tell us is that we’ll probably see the 2019 Jimny a lot sooner than initially expected, with a world debut to follow at the Tokyo Motor Show in October. Sales will commence before the end of the year, while by the first quarter of 2019, the new Jimny should be available in different markets worldwide.

    The one with the white hood and roof looks pretty good….

    I keep reading the the Jimny as “Jimmy”. TBH Jimmy sounds better. I do like the Blue color.

      well, you are not alone.

      I never noticed that n, danm

    • I grew up thinking it was Jimmy until I dated a girl that was coming from a mountain place and dreamed of having a Jimny.

      GMC used to have a model called Jimmy, maybe that’s keeping them back from using it

      Might be a trademark issue.

      GMC had a “Jimmy” truck years ago.


    i’l take two, if there was 5 door version…

      What a great idea to have a 5 door version of it.

    Is that a dot matrix printer that they’re making that dashboard with?

  • Mind Synthetic

    i would kill for one

    • jfalckt

      Pretty drastic but I semi agree 👍

  • I prefer the current shape, this seems too boxy and not in a bold way. Interior updates welcomed though.

    • I think they went back to retro design, with Ignis who looks like Whizzkid, which actually looks good to me.

    • I agree, looks like an old shoe box.

      • Eythan Aldrich

        I have to disagree…..the G-class on the other hand is still boxy so why?

  • Marty

    Looks like this kind of car should look. Rugged, simple, honest.

  • Hans_Remore

    budget g-wagen

  • ProtectOurHeritage

    Looks far better than the current generation!

  • fabri99

    Definitely want one.

  • ediotsavant

    Love this update as it cannot be mistaken for anything other than a Jimny.

  • Autoexperte

    i like it

  • Liam Paul

    man if i was GM, I would try to get suzuki to let them sell the jimny here in the states, it would be a huge hit..

    • Well they need to replace the kei engine for sure, and federalize it, which would be really expensive and not to mention the reputation of Samurai before it.

  • Wow it looks like original LJ80, I had to say the new Jimny is really good in the design. I hope the price would still be reasonable.

  • Some ol’ bloke

    Anyone have any Idea how much it’ll cost?

  • Ioakou Logic

    this design looks like “forword-back”!!

  • iea96

    If this will have aftermarket parts support from 3rd party manufacturers like the Jeep Wrangler, it will become the new trend.

  • Six_Tymes

    I want one. I hope its cost stays low.
