Next Nissan Z-car to utilise an existing, but modified platform

Dream garage: Suzuki Jimny wagon and ute imagined

The Suzuki Jimny has proven to be such a runaway success the company is reportedly considering wagon and ute versions of the pint-sized four-wheel-drive. The waiting list for a new Suzuki Jimny still stretches up to 12 months in Australia, even though production has ramped up in an attempt to catch up with demand. However, CarAdvice understands the Japanese car maker is considering expanding the line-up to include a five-door wagon and a ute – both on a new, extended wheelbase.

In a promotional video posted to YouTube, the General Motors truck division demonstrated the technology alongside a less-than-cryptic slogan “Sometimes the biggest leaps forward are actually diagonal”. However, the clip indicates the feature will be an optional extra, rather than fitted as standard.
