The much anticipated vehicle has already been launched in an event in Japan with following technical specifications and features.
Other notable features include LED head lamps, cruise control system, 16-inch wheels, fully automatic air conditioning system, and 6 airbags. Further, It is predicted that Jimny won't be available in diesel version in the global market, the Indian might get the same with 1.3 ddis diesel.
It is expected the Jimny will continue to offer genuine four-wheel drive capability with a traditional transfer-case transmission, class-leading ground clearance and entry/departure angles. Apart from that, it is revealed that the auto will have a ladder frame chassis to preserve its rugged look. The SUVs will be officially launched in July 2018 in Japan, following which they will be launched in many other worldwide markets. So it'll be a petrol engine of some sort, and most likely Suzuki's 1.0-litre Boosterjet three-cylinder or 1.4-litre Boosterjet four-cylinder (going off the image above it looks to be a four-cylinder based on the manifold) and possibly the brand's 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder as an entry-level option.
Another bone of contention between the two is price.
The new Jimny will stick to the previous model's mechanical layout engineered more for off-road ability than on-road comfort.
With just about every vehicle manufacturer coming up with a steady stream of new SUV models, it could be easy to forget that Suzuki was producing and selling affordable SUVs long before it became fashionable. The wheelbase of newly launched is 2250 mm while that of Jeep Compass is 2636 mm, which means Jimny is best suited for city driving.
