2019 Suzuki Jimny Tackles Motocross Terrain, Emerges Victorious

The Suzuki Jimny has always been tough as nails. Now there’s a new kid on the block that intends to continue that legacy: the all-new Jimny.

Combining the retro-looking exterior with a modern interior, generous ground clearance, body-on-frame construction, four-wheel drive and low-range gearbox, it is able to boldly go beyond the reach of other small SUVs.

To check if it can deliver on its promises, it was taken to a motocross course. Located north of Cape Town, South Africa, the dirt track was anything but easy, but the Jimny managed to conquer it.

While being shaken in the driver’s seat, the reviewer admitted that was the most fun he’s ever had on four wheels. He then talked about some of the features that make the new Jimny one hot little off-roader.

As for the weak points, such as the noisy ride, tiny boot and a small petrol engine, well, pretty much anyone interested in it already knows them. On the other hand, Suzuki has brought it up to speed with a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and smartphone integration, climate control and heated seats to make driving a bit more pleasant regardless of the environment.

    I really wish this was available here in the US. Awesome car for crappy NYC streets and not some supersized SUV

    Great car for weekends and stuff. I love it.

    Looks like a pretty mild and smooth groomed motocross course to me. Wonder if it can make it over 50mph on the highway

    What the Jeep Wrangler once was, before it became all high on itself. Jeep would be wise to introduce a more basic version at or near $20k, to give regular off-road enthusiasts the chance at a new SUV without spending a fortune. The global appeal of this new Suzuki is testament to the appetite for just such a vehicle.
