    Default NEW 2018 Suzuki Jimny

    This Thread is a repository for all info (data) about the upcoming new Suzuki Jimny.

    There is one other Thread about the NEXT/NEW Jimny...

    http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/...-getoets/page5

    But it is high on opinion & low on info.

    The new Jimny was apparently launched at the Tokyo Motor Show in late October - but I can't find anything in English that gives details.

    That article probably contains only the same speculation as what we have already seen. Those are exactly the same pictures photoshopped onto different backgrounds.

    Well it looks awesome, I like it. Think the big question will be the price? The current Jimny new I feel is a bit over priced for what you get, but no one can argue that it is a very good offroader

    As I said in the very first post.
    If it was, then it exists, if it exists it can be measured & its specifications are public.
    No?

    I like the look of it, and I would love to have one....depending on the available engines.

    Problem being I'm unlikely to be able to afford it, and I just cannot see it being a car that lasts 20-30 years.

    I know cars are disposable items these days, I just don't have to like it.

    Nope, it wasn't. These were the vehicles. None of them look like that picture. http://www.globalsuzuki.com/TMS2017/sp/report/

    In fact, if you click on line-up - The current Jimny is on show.

    Unfortunately, a lot of the speculation comes from India, who really would like the Jimny, but are stuck with the Gypsy. They seem to have excellent imaginations.

    Looking at the photo I posted. Why on earth have a flicker on the fender and side mirror?

    I will keep waiting for more info before I decide to buy anything, im more interested in what engines it will have and when we will get it here in SA.

    Looks wise, if this is what it will look like then its ok I guess, not any better than the current shape.

    Ever since that thread, I feel as if I see Jimnys everywhere. Its as if they following me around saying buy me, you know you want too!

    On a serious note though, I wouldn't want to buy a new 2 door 4x4 and a few months later the new Jimny is launched and is an awesome vehicle. Ill kick myself.

    I think we are a few years away. Maybe 2019.
