Watch the newest version of the little Japanese 4x4 venture off the beaten track.

The Suzuki Jimny is well-known for being one of the most capable off-roaders for its size and price, and the new-generation model due in Australia during the first quarter of 2019 should be no different.

While claims and marketing campaigns can tell you whatever they like, there's nothing like seeing it to believe it.

In a new video posted by DPCcars – what appears to be a reposted version of a Japanese Jimny informercial – you can see the little off-roader tackling ruts, inclines, and large puddles, demonstrating this isn't just a jacked-up hatchback.
