The world's cutest Suzuki Jimnys are coming to Australia

Just in case you don’t find Suzuki’s mini-off-roader cute and charismatic enough, Japanese auto styling house DAMD Inc now offers dress-up kits to make your JB64 series Suzuki Jimny look like, well, a number of different classic off-roaders. There are currently two kits on offer: ‘Little-D’, a nod to the classic Land Rover Defender, and ‘Mini-G’, which sports the sleek, yet boxy, features of a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen...

2019 Suzuki Baleno GL review

The base Baleno continues to offer acres of space and decent levels of equipment, though the lack of safety tech puts it behind the class leaders.

2019 Suzuki Jimny automatic review

We've tested the Jimny extensively off-road and we know what it is capable of, but this time we drive the auto around town to see if it makes sense as a city car.

2019 Suzuki Swift review: GL Navigator with Safety Pack

Seriously light, packed with features, and cute to boot, the Swift is a perpetual favourite for first-car buyers. But its value equation is starting to look shaky...

2019 Suzuki Swift GL Navigator with Safety Pack v Kia Picanto GT-Line | Small Car Comparison

If you have around $20,000 to spend on a compact city car, it's hard to look past the Kia Picanto. It's surprisingly grown-up to drive and loaded with features, which is why it's comfortably the best-selling micro car in Australia. But size matters – so we've heard – and for not all that much more money than Kia demands, you could find yourself behind the wheel of something more substantial...

Comparison: 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and Suzuki Jimny take on the LandCruiser

For all their foibles, warts and all, these three 4X4s remain beloved in the hearts of off-roading enthusiasts old and new. But, out of the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2019 Suzuki Jimny and 2019 Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series 'Troopcarrier', which is most capable and our favourite off-road? Find out, right here.

REVIEW: 2019 Suzuki Jimny manual, off-road

Chances are, you’re not buying the 2019 Suzuki Jimny as a family car, which slightly softens the blow of it having a poor safety rating. If you’re buying it for fun and excitement, however, along with a good dose of solid off-road capability, then I reckon you’re barking up the right tree...

2017 Suzuki Swift review

See the full article here Suzuki is on a roll. New offerings such as the Ignis, Baleno and Vitara are giving the humble Japanese brand more exposure than it has had in years. But the all-new Suzuki Swift you see here is the big one, because it's the company's most popular vehicle and the one it's best known for...

2019 Suzuki Swift GL Navigator with Safety Pack v Kia Picanto GT-Line

So, you have around $20,000 to spend on a small car. Is the Kia Picanto king, or does the bigger Suzuki Swift offer enough to justify its steeper price tag?

2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon v Toyota LandCruiser v Suzuki Jimny off-road comparison

Here we have the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Suzuki Jimny and Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series 'Troopcarrier'. Which is most capable and our favourite off-road?

2018 Kia Picanto X-Line v Suzuki Ignis comparison

Australia is one of the world's more heavily urbanised populations, so it's incongruous that this nation of city slickers ignores cars with the smallest footprints. Yet we do. Well, not entirely. The Kia Picanto has rightly been credited with revitalising the so-called 'micro car' segment, as its 69 per cent market share shows...

Jeep, Suzuki diesels found to exceed EU emissions limits

Diesel engines used by Jeep Grand Cherokee and Suzuki Vitara models sold in the EU used "prohibited emissions strategies" to emit more oxides of nitrogen (NOx) during regular road driving than during emissions testing, according to the RDW, the road authority for the Netherlands. In a statement to Reuters, the RDW said Jeep has developed a software patch to the authority's satisfaction...

Suzuki Jimny supply will improve... but not yet

Suzuki has invested in its Jimny production line to better meet global demand, meaning Australian buyers could see their wait-times cut from the latter half of 2020 onwards. The average wait for Australian buyers is still around nine months, though dealer stock does exist in certain colours. Some have had to hold on longer than this...

2018 Suzuki Vitara RT-S review

This car is by no means a performance SUV. The 1.6-litre is just adequate for city driving, although it will not complain if you push it. If you need any more performance, you maybe need to be looking at the 1.4-litre turbo. The price for what you get is hands down the best value small SUV on the market...

2013 Suzuki Swift Sport review

I want to start this review by saying that I am a Honda fan. A '95 Honda Accord was my first car and I have particular love for the high-revving VTEC Honda’s of old. So when I finished my degree and decided I wanted to buy my first car with a sporting bent, I went searching for the Type R’s, among a few others - preferably naturally aspirated...

2007 Suzuki Swift Sport review

About three years ago I moved onto my green P's, and with that I wanted to buy a new car. At the time I was driving a 1994 Ford laser GL with 300,000km on it. While still living at home and working full time I decided that it was time. After searching classified ads around the clock I had narrowed it down to a few cars - Suzuki Swift Sport, Ford Fiesta XR4 or a Mitsubishi Ralliart Colt (if I could find a 2010 model, as they were only approved for that year)...

2010 Suzuki Swift Sport review

This is a one-year update on my original owner review. So, one year and about 30,000km later, what's the little yellow boi been like to live with? Well, pretty damn good. The car is still as rock solid as the day I bought it, with no rattles or squeaks to be found or heard anywhere, nothing has fallen off, or even had so much as a scuff mark...
