“What a little champ”

I bought a new Jimny 'Special' in October 2002, having owned a Vitara a few years ago. My daughter is a 'horsey' person so I needed a vehicle that can cope with off-road as easily as on-road driving. This little champ is first rate at off-road driving. The switchable four-wheel drive is powerful...

It was summer 2001 and I was walking to the bus stop on my way home from work. I had been getting quite fed up with using public transport twice a day and had been considering buying a car for quite some time. I had never had a car before due to the fact that I had gone away to university and...

A true off road vehicle that is stylish on the road too. The Jimny has an aggressive look when viewed from the front, that is offset by its' cuteness. Compared to some of the other 4x4's I have had/tried it has a far greater degree of comfort. The front seats are generous and fairly comfortable...

boot too small

The Suzuki Jimny I'm going to review is the 1.3 JLX What a fantastic little vehicle the suzuki jimni is. My family have had a few 4x4s all of different makes but there isn't one that compares to this little wonder on wheels. As we live in a remote area with a steep hill to climb in winter this is...

I have had one of these for 2 years now on the good side it has a great driving position but as this means it has a higher centre of gravity it doesn't feel very stable always especially in strong side winds also as it is quite narrow. because of this its not great on motorways but then I didn't...

I have owned a Jimny for several years now and am very happy with it. A little bouncy on road surfaces but ok if not driving long distances. Mechanically is very reliable, always starts in the mornings. I find the selectable 4 wheel drive very useful as most 4x4s these days have permanent 4 wheel...

I bought my pre-reg Jimny 2 years ago in Oct 2006 for just over £7,000. I also paid a bit more to get mud flaps and the paint protection treatment. It has been a very sturdy little workhorse SUV. I later purchased a trailer and had a towbar fitted. I usually use it with the back seats down and my...

not a lot of boot space

I bought my jimny in january 2009 before passing my car test. it is very easy to use, it has this utilitarian feel to it which makes it feel like theres nothing you could possibly do that would damage it. the engine isnt exactly the most powerful thing ever placed in a 4x4 but lets face it, it...

“Suzuki Jimny”

published 06/02/2008

reliable, economic, 4x4

not very spacious in the back

I have owned a Jimny for a few years now and I absolutely love it and have no intention of changing it! I often drive my Jimny long distances and don't have any problems with as some people have reported. In fact find that the use of fuel is more economic when driving a long distance as opposed...

We bought our little Jimny back in 2001. At tht particular time it was the car for us. Cheap, Cheerful , Chunky and with the option of selective 4 wheel drive. The 2 wheel drive is great for running round town but when we went off road and into 4x4 mode things got better. The Jimny can handle...

Fun, good value

not much space in the boot

I bought my Jimny 6 months ago after thinking about it for a few years. I have always been a small car driver (Ka, Corsa) and felt i needed something slightly bigger without feeling i'm driving a tank. When driving it is easy to handle and fun but most importantly to me i feel safe. The driving...
