True 4X4 Experience
The all-new Jimny features All Grip Pro is designed to deliver a true 4×4 experience, its ladder frame is more resistant than a monocoque body to torsion and uses a long-stroke 3-link suspension and rigid full wheel axles on both front and rear for strong traction on uneven terrain.
The Jimny can climb over ridges and verticals without scrapping its bumpers or underbody thanks to its 37-degree specialized approach angle, 28-degree ramp breakover angle and 49-degree departure angle.
It has 4WD with low-range transfer gear, it can switch between 4WD and 2WD to achieve optimal off-road performance and better fuel economy.
With hill hold control, hill descent control and brake limited slip-differential (LSD) traction control. These systems allow both wheels to maintain speed and better control in rough road conditions
Functional and practical aesthetics
It sports a square body for better situational awareness while the look and body express off-road functionality in every detail, from the tough square form to the 15-inch alloy wheels painted in dark-metallic gray. The angled bumper is optimized for off-road terrain while the square wheel arches allow for easier tire changes. Molded black bumpers, wheel arch extensions and side sills help block pebbles from scratching the body panels. The iconic round headlamps inherited from past models are completely separated to allow independent replacement.
The instrument panel and surrounding parts have scratch- and stain-resistant grained finish, circular steering wheel has a leather cover, and the multimedia audio unit features a bigger 9-inch capacitive touchscreen. It features off-line GPS navigation system and off-road audio guide. Plus, the center switches and dials in metallic colors for easy use.
For storage, it now accommodates 53 liters more luggage while small items can be stored in a removable luggage box.

The all-new Jimny uses a 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder K15B, a specially designed flywheel for engine flexibility and improved NVH and a lightweight resin belt cover and fuel tank. The optimized intake system and long nozzle injector enhance fuel efficiency. The new MPV has a maximum output power of 75kW@6,000rpm and a torque of 130Nm@4,000rpm.
Safety features includes the Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) which scatters collision energy across the vehicle frame to mitigate damage to the car and passengers.
The Jimny’s ladder frame rigidity was increased and the body mounts redesigned for lower vibration. The front seat cushion frames are 70mm wider and 50mm taller for better shock absorption. With built-in zinc-coated steel and has a more effective floor undercoating and seater coatings at panel edges to protect it against rust caused by salt from river crossings.
