New Suzuki Jimny priced from £15,499 (gallery)

Suzuki’s new Jimny SUV will be on sale in dealerships from January, with prices starting at £15,499.

Buyers can choose from two models, the base SZ4 or the SZ5, priced at £17,999.

Standard equipment includes selectable all-wheel-drive with low ratio transfer, air conditioning, Bluetooth, cruise control and front foglamps.

The SZ5 adds 15-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, climate control, sat-nav and heated front seats.

An automatic gearbox can be specified on the SZ5 for £1,000.

The simple off-roader is compact and robust in its design. It features a 1.5-litre petrol engine with an output of 101PS.

A ladder chassis configuration ensures optimal off-road performance.

Suzuki says the new Jimny’s more rigid body provides better on-road driveability.

Rear luggage space is larger than the previous model, with 377 litres available with the rear seats folded.

Suzuki Safety Support is Suzuki’s preventative safety technology that helps the driver avoid accidents and supports the driver to have peace of mind during every day driving.

Dual Sensor Brake Support (DSBS) is fitted as standard which operates if the system determines that there is a risk of collision with a forward vehicle or pedestrian. If activated, it issues an audio and visual warning, increases braking force, or applies autonomous emergency braking depending on the situation to help avoid a collision or reduce damage.

The first Jimny model launched in 1970 and has since achieved cumulative global sales of 2,854,000 units.
