… 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
