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 manual review: City driving

It's charming, funky, affordable, and capable off-road. But how does the 2019 Suzuki Jimny manual fare in the urban jungle?

2019 Suzuki Jimny owner review: Off-roading and road-tripping

I purchased the Jimny a few months ago with every intention of going off-road with some semblance of regularity. I didn’t fit BFGoodrich all-terrains for aesthetics alone.

REVIEW: 2019 Suzuki Jimny manual, off-road

Suzuki Jimny Sierra Off-road Quick Review

The Suzuki Jimny Sierra is the most affordable serious off-roader you can buy. Let’s just put this out there - this isn’t a car that we’d want to drive on a day-to-day basis… unless our commute consisted of a rugged track littered with rocks, boulders and all other sorts of slippery crud...

Five-door Suzuki Jimny could debut in 2021 – report

A five-door variant of the Suzuki Jimny is tipped to go into production in 2021.

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...

2015 Suzuki Jimny Review

I bought the Jimny new, in March 2015. First thing I did was to take out the rear seats, and fit a "storage" system that would hold all I need for trips by myself, swag-camping along the way. As long as you "get it", you cannot be anything other than rapped with these little beasts...
