4th generation Suzuki Jimny coming in 2018.

Recommended Posts

Why do you keep talking about transfer case? I’m talking about the aesthetic aspect of the ride.

 

By having transfer case, Jimny is a work horse rather than city driving SUV.

 

The aesthetics aspect reflects mechanical aspects.

I feel if jimny interior is that of hustler, it would look out of place.

 

The rugged interior design sings well with the exterior.

The latest facelifted Jeep Renegade do look more stylish in and out.

Of course it doesn't have a center diff lock shifter to select high or low diff like the Jimny, it has only the 4x4 mode select for different terrain.

Agreed. Suzuki knows their demographics.

 

Even the headlights are the old school reflective type instead of projector or led lamps which makes more sense.

 

Clearer a very specialized market mainly for off-roading work.

Yes it’s a workhorse but the design can be better. It doesn’t mean that it should be barebone.

I beg to differ. The rugged interior is ok but it can be better in terms of quality.

The design is not that barebone le.

 

It is more of utilitarian.

I don't think it is lack in quality.

 

Rather, it is conscious choice to use hard plastic to last longer.

 

Mind you, it is still a work horse rather than lifestyle car.

No point in using the touchscreen display in the center console for work horse vehicles then.

Standard basic functions with knobs and buttons suffice for such vehicles. Last longer too.

 

I feels it’s lacking interior wise with the modern, attractive outlook, colors scheme.

 

Maybe I do have some expectations with aesthetics of products.

Apparently this Jimny is sizzling hot in the news and community worldwide. There are more buzz in the new Jimny than the new Swift Sport last year.... not surprising considering that the old Jimny is 20 years old model and very overdue for a new model.

 

Someone did a render of a 4 door version. Suddenly has that Honda Crossroad vibe to it.

A possible vision of a Jimny fully kitted for offroading, not bad! Take note this is the 1.5 NA version with wide fenders and projector lamps

Haha isn’t it mean to be a work horse? What for add the bells and whistle? No need motorized side mirror, no need lcd touch screen center console, no need digital display in between the two gauges etc

How to know the quality by just looking at the picture only?

Or you touch or feel the car before?Care to share?lol...

Wah...so passive aggressive...lol

 

But anyway you will not be the first to complain. I recall a YouTube reviewer also lament the use of hard plastic in suzuki cars like the new Ignis and Swift.

 

I guess at the end of the day there is still a production costing they need to factor in. Some overseas dealers are already complained that recent suzuki cars have increase price making it less competitive. Suzuki also cited increase production and material cost has pushed up it's price.

 

The new Swift Sport is only 2k to 3k pounds less than a Fiesta ST. People rather choose the latter.

 

It's after all still a smaller Japanese niche company. Smaller than even Hyundai.

 

But Jimny is a class of its own... it will sell.

From ST:

 

NEW JIMNY COMING

 

Ever since the first Jimny made its debut in April 1970, it has had a strong cult following. The latest generation of the 4x4 subcompact SUV (above) is slated to land in Singapore next month. To be powered by a 1-litre turbocharged engine, the boxy icon is expected to be priced at around $80,000. Small and lightweight, the Jimny incorporates essentials for serious off-roading such as a ladder frame construction, three-link rigid axle suspension with coil spring and part-time 4WD with low-range transfer gear.

 

 

Don’t know where the 1L TC engine come from also. Maybe ST produce one?
