… which other SUV has a 4×4 on all its variants:  * Five Doors * six airbags * push button start * cruise control * request sensors * a beautiful sound system
I mean it’s loaded and and the price to me is justified grading
the car is really compact on the outside and but it’s very roomy on the inside
I am a big heavyset guy with very broad shoulders and I am really comfortable
it has a great stance you sit High
the visibility is superb
with with expansive glass on all sides and these big elephant mirrors the visibility out is outstanding
it feels very airy and roomy inside and not claustrophobic at all which was one of my personal fears…
it’s brilliant
Also it’s very solidly built unlike the other Suzuki cars as you must have also heard from other people…

The cabin is really quiet you can whisper and talk with hardly any engine noise
there is very little road noise and the music system … is very good it is one of the better systems that I have seen in any car.

Okay, let me address a few questions that need addressing although there have been discussed to death a zillion times in the videos that you’ve seen so far of the Jimny:
The tires do not look small on the Jimny
everybody seems to have the opinion that they do they are very versatile and you’ve seen in all the videos that have been posted by car enthusiasts and Auto Experts who Maruti invited for the off-roading experience and and trying the car it’s really gone well and we’ve seen they’ve done some brilliant off-roading,
so these cars these tires really perform well in off-road conditions
and if you notice the tires are radials M plus S if you see on the tire right M plus S stands for Mud and Snow so they really are all terrain tires which can really go anywhere unless you’re planning to drive on the moon they are very versatile okay
one of the other questions that I’ve been asked a number of times has not been adequately answered is
whether the fifth prior in the alpha spec of full alloy or is it a steel wheel reveal that for you today:

A full-size Alloy which is very very good that Maruti hasn’t cringed on this and given a full-size alloy
the seats are super comfortable for the front row passengers the seats are wide and very good for the long distance
I think the back row seats are the ones that need a special mention
especially the the sitting position this car has what is called the stadium seating which is that
the rear seats are slightly elevated from the front row seat and because of which
the rear passengers get a great view of the road unlike any other car on the road today
so an amazing experience for the rear seat passengers

as well there is no body roll either on corners or at high speeds the car feels very stable and planted experts also said that the steering is heavy it’s not really heavy but it’s a tad small especially if you’re a big guy like me with broad shoulders there’s just about enough space for you to hold it comfortably it could be slightly better but I’m not complaining the other small issue that I have is the left leg pressing against the console
it’s a little uncomfortable in the long drives touching against the console maybe some form or a little bit of cushioning will help it but it’s an issue the other thing that I sort of miss, is the armrests
now this is a very easy to Drive effortless car you know um we’re driving in with one hand most of the time and you do feel you miss a armrest which could be very useful especially for long drives

the entire setup of these suspension and the shock absorbers is really really shocking in the sense that it’s really good!
You do not feel the bumps and The Oddities of the road that’s much as you would feel in other cars…
… I think the other issue that has been addressed wrongly by the experts who reviewed the car in general is about
the highway driving capability of this car they said that the car is underpowered and non-aerodynamic and that had me worried..  …
but none of that is true after having driven it for a week
there is enough power available on demand for you to comfortably and confidently make overtaking maneuvers
so there is nothing to worry about so while there is no doubt about the power being available
the only concern could be the top speed and I guess this car would tap out and max out at 145 kilometers per hour but then you don’t overtake on those speeds to you so overtaking no problem top speed
Maybe one of the other things that Maruti or Suzuki needs to address is:
Just too many sounds and beeps inside the car and especially since it is such a quiet cabin all these sounds very Amplified

… comes with who has got a very Superior Sound you really enjoy the music especially because there is a it’s a very quiet cabin however you do miss the presence of a volume knob for easy reach out of habit and you have to go either to increasing the volume there or on your steering wheel but you do miss that that function but there is a very interesting surround feeder function in in this field system that I’ll show you and I’m going to play the music so enjoy the music and the surround sound feature…

… he things that I really like about the Jimny and the things that I am not crazy about first the likes I really really like the size I told you it’s my primary car and it is very maneuverable very practical I used to drive an XUV before this which was a seven seater and I used to feel guilty about howling six empty seats behind me when I was driving alone
The Stance is great
Tthe visibility is amazing
The drive is enjoyable and effortless
I really love that part the elephant ears on this car are my favorite the rear room mirrors they give you the visibility and again very roomy just feels great feels good feels positive
amongst the things that I’m not too crazy about are the beeps and alarms multi multiple of them and some are really annoying the other is the Chrome on the grill not too crazy about the Chrome particularly on the grill especially on this black car

Another thing I wanted to say was everybody should name their Jimny every Jimny should have a name my Jimny

Please share the video as much as possible!
Because there are so many myths around the Jimny that need to be busted and quickly till the next time I do hope that you’re living the life that you want and if not you’re taking steps towards it good luck and take care

Thank you Ritesh Babbar for this great video about the New Suzuki 5-Door Jimny!

Suzuki Jimny: A Compact 4×4 Worth Loving

‍The Suzuki Jimny, a compact four-wheel drive with a charming character, is a vehicle that brings joy to everyone who drives it. Its quirky aesthetic, coupled with its impressive off-road capabilities, makes it an irresistible choice for 4×4 enthusiasts. In this article, we’re going to dig deeper into the reasons why the Suzuki Jimny is a beloved compact 4×4, and why it might just be the perfect vehicle for you.

1. Simplicity and Versatility at Its Core

The Jimny is a testament to the beauty of simplicity. Its unpretentious design is both humble and practical, making it an easy-to-drive vehicle that’s equally fun. Unlike many modern vehicles, the Jimny doesn’t bombard you with excessive choices or fancy features. Instead, it offers a straightforward choice between manual and automatic transmission, allowing the owner to decide on any additional accessories or aftermarket additions as per their preference.

Its versatility is another appealing factor. The Jimny is equally at home in the city as it is on muddy trails, making it a great choice for both urbanites and outdoor enthusiasts. This adaptability, combined with its acceptable price, makes the Jimny a competitive option in the 4×4 market.

2. High Demand and Popularity

Despite its simplicity, the Suzuki Jimny is immensely popular. Its demand is so high that people are willing to wait over a year to get their brand-new Jimny. Its rarity on the road, combined with its adorable looks and rugged toughness, makes it an instant head-turner.

3. State-of-the-Art Infotainment System

Despite its retro look, the Jimny doesn’t skimp on modern features. It comes with a 7-inch display that integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This integration allows easy access to your music apps and more importantly, your navigation system. Although the infotainment system is basic, the inclusion of smartphone integration elevates the overall user experience.

4. Ideal for Singles and Couples

From a practicality perspective, the Jimny is perfect for singles and couples. Its compact design means it’s not the roomiest vehicle on the market, but it’s just right for one or two people. The backseat is there if you need it, but the space it offers is limited, but good enough for one or two children, or your German Sheperd ;). However, if you’re willing to sacrifice the back seats, you will have 377 litres of space available for your belongings.

5. A Canvas for Customization

One of the most exciting aspects of owning a Jimny is the endless possibilities for customization. Whether you want to turn it into a weekend off-roader or a micro camper, the Jimny offers a blank canvas for your creativity. Its short fuel range might necessitate the addition of fuel cans, and there are plenty of aftermarket accessories available to enhance your Jimny.

6. Built for Off-Roading

The Jimny was built with off-roading in mind. It features a rigid ladder frame that is designed for real off-roading. This means it’s not the most comfortable ride for daily commuting, especially on highways. But if you’re looking for a vehicle that’s capable of tackling rugged terrains and dirt trails, the Jimny is a very good and solid choice.

7. Easy to Drive and Park

The Jimny’s compact size not only makes it a fun vehicle to drive but also makes it easy to park. It’s nimble and maneuverable, making it a breeze to navigate through narrow city streets and crowded car parks. Plus, the high ride position gives you a great view of the road.

8. Comfortable and Roomy Interior

Despite its compact size, the Jimny offers a surprisingly roomy interior. The headroom is ample, and the visibility is excellent, thanks to the large windows and slim pillars. The rear seats can also fold flat to provide additional cargo space. Also, the interior design is simple and functional, with an aesthetic that harkens back to old-school 4x4s.

9. Affordable to Run

The Jimny is not just affordable to buy, but it’s also cheap to run. Its fuel economy is decent for a 4×4, and its small fuel tank makes it easy to fill up. Plus, the automatic engine is revvy past 60 mph, making it a pleasant ride for those who prefer a relaxed drive.

10. High-Quality Build

The Jimny is built by Suzuki, a brand what is well known for its high-quality automobiles. The paintwork and the plastic interior are durable and hard-wearing, making the Jimny a vehicle that’s built to last.

The Suzuki Jimny is not just a vehicle but a lifestyle.

It’s a car that motivates you to do more, to explore more, and to live more. It’s a car that brings joy and excitement into your life. It’s a car that, despite its quirks and limitations, is loved by many for its heart, soul, and character. Whether you’re a city dweller looking for an easy-to-park vehicle or an outdoor enthusiast looking for a capable off-roader, the Jimny could just be the perfect vehicle for you.
