Well-Equipped 2019 Suzuki Jimny Starts From €17,915 In Germany

Suzuki is gearing up for the European market launch of its all-new Jimny and that can only mean one thing: it has finally put a price on its tiny off-roader.

Germany is one of the first countries where Suzuki has released pricing for the Jimny, which starts at €17,915 (approximately $20,922), including VAT. That sum will buy you the entry-level Comfort model equipped with a five-speed manual transmission. As Japanese brands have accustomed us, standard equipment for the Jimny Comfort is more than decent.

It includes air conditioning, CD player with MP3 playback, DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, front power windows, cruise control with speed limiter, heated front seats, height-adjustable multifunction steering wheel, power mirrors, light sensor, and fog lights. Upgrading to the four-speed automatic transmission costs €1,180.

The other trim level available in Germany is Comfort+, offered exclusively with the five-speed manual gearbox. Available from €19,985 ($23,330), it’s more content-rich thanks to features like LED headlights, automatic climate control, an audio system with smartphone connectivity and navigation, leather steering wheel, heated mirrors, and a cargo box.

It’s also got upgraded styling due to the 15-inch alloys, tinted rear windows, black mirror caps, and body-color door handles. The only optional extras are the metallic paint (€500) and two-tone metallic paint scheme (€330) — the latter only available for the Comfort+.

Standard safety features include an autonomous emergency braking system and a traffic sign recognition system for the first time. Too bad the Jimny only got three stars in Euro NCAP crash tests.

All Suzuki Jimny models feature the same technical platform consisting of a ladder frame chassis, Allgrip Pro part-time 4WD system with low range gearing, a 102 PS (101 hp) 1.5-liter naturally aspirated gasoline engine, and a five-speed manual transmission (a four-speed auto is optional).

The claimed average fuel economy for the manual model is 6.8 l/100 km (41.5 mpg UK/34.6 mpg US), with corresponding CO2 emissions of 154 g/km. The automatic version averages 7.5 l/100 km (37.6 mpg UK/31.3 mpg US) and 170 g/km CO2.

The 2019 Jimny’s German market debut will take place on October 27-28.

    one good thing about not selling it here in the usa, It wont be abused with people putting ugly 22 24 26 28 inch rims on it making it look DAF.

    Go ahead and buy one and die in it. Those crash test results are dreadful. About the same as they were in the early ’90s, when it was fashionable to chant “you’re gonna get killed in a Japanese car”.

      just because you are a pansy and drive all air bagged doesn’t meat the rest of us are.maybe you should consider digging a bunker and staying there i heard a world is a dangerous place.

      Did you have a look at other NCAP test results for superminis? There are also others with similar “dreadful” results. I’m not saying it’s especially safe car, but it is intended to be used in an environment where higher speed impact collisions are not very common.

  • Emoto

    Would be interesting to find out more about specifications and off-road capability.

    • ace_9

      You can find it on the internet. Carwow also made a video review recently.

    Suzuki should sell this in the US against Jeeps, since Wranglers cost a fortune now.

    • ace_9

      Sadly, it is not as suitable for out of city driving at higher speeds as a wrangler…

  • Six_Tymes

    shame it fares Poorly in crash protection testing

  • Bo Hanan

    Such a missed opportunity as the USA would eat these up. And I would buy 3 and put 2 in the closet for later.

    I love to buy this new Suzuki Jimny. Suzuki has avoid the U.S. market for over 10 years now and it not coming back in either. Just too expensive for the Jimny to get approve by NTSA and EPA. Cost around $2 million dollars a car!

  • Astonman

    I want!

  • Scherpereel Clement

    Great little car. THing that suck in France tho is the eco-tax you have to pay when the car produce CO2 over a certain limit. On this car it’ll be around 2000 euro extra !

  • Wandering_Spirit

    Looks good to me. Minimalist but missing nothing and fun to drive where it counts. Having one of these or a Wrangler wouldn’t hurt. I love both.

  • ace_9

    Wow, what car do you have?

    • Scherpereel Clement

      I daily drive a 1973 Peugeot 404

      • ace_9

        Nice. And why this car?

        • Scherpereel Clement

          Because it’s a cool car, spacious, easy to fix and that can go basicaly anywhere because of its 22 cm of ground clearance.
          And it’s a propulsion so … drifting in the dirt and the wet !
          And it’s a beatiful car.
