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 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.

Video: 1977 Suzuki LJ50 v 2021 Suzuki Jimny comparison

Mechanically, these two vehicles have plenty in common: a small revvy petrol engine, live axles, ladder chassis, big tyres (for the size of the car), and wheels at the extremities of each corner.

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

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...

2000 Suzuki Jimny JX (4x4) review

Most reliable car/'Beep' (too small to call it a Jeep) I have ever driven! I have had it 15 years and this is the first time I have had any trouble. It's old now and I dread parting with it. The Jimny has got me through snow, mud, floods and mountains. The body has remained without rust even though I live within 3km of the sea...
