For instance, the round headlights are taken off the original Jimny, while the vertical grille, horizontal slits in the clamshell bonnet and "gathered" rear taillights are all from the second-generation vehicle.

In terms of dimension, the Suzuki Jimny measures 3,395 mm in length, 1,475 mm in width, and 1,725 in height, while offering a ground clearance of 205 mm. It offers a ground clearance of 200 mm. Suzuki claims that it's still a functional and straightforward environment though, and that the switches are all large enough to operate while wearing gloves. The boot floor and the backs of the rear seats are coated in plastic for protection against dirt and stains. Global markets will get the Jimny Sierra only. Suzuki's popular 1.0-litre BoosterJet three-cylinder won't power the new Jimny, but instead a brand new, simpler 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine called K15B arrives. It can churn out 101PS of max power and 130Nm of max torque. However, it's also lighter and neater packaging means it's smaller too. Both the petrol engines come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 4-speed automatic transmission. CO2 stands at 154g/km and 170g/km respectively. The drivetrain can be configured three ways - 2H driving the Jimny's front wheels, 4H activating the four-wheel-drive system, and 4L activating the low range transfer gear for the harshest off-road conditions.

An approach angle of 37 degrees, breakover angle of 28 degrees, and departure angle of 49 degrees is how the little mountain goat from Japan stacks up off the beaten path.

Fittingly, it was a side coached by him that, 22 years later, brought shootout salvation for England . Note that England won the penalty shoot-out in its history at the world Championships.

As diminutive as it is (3480mm overall on a 2250mm wheelbase, 1645mm wide and 1725 high) the new Jimny still has a separate ladder frame and old-school rigid axles - albeit with coil springs all round - and it is still one of the most ruggedly built beetle-crushers on the planet. Other safety features include Hill hold and descent control, 6 airbags, electronic stability programme (ESP), Tyre pressure monitoring system and more.

Replacing the 1.3-liter that we've found underpowered in our test drive of the previous generation, the 1.5-liter in the all-new Jimny delivers "ample torque at low revolutions".
