The lovable Jimny sports a boxy design that reminds you of a Mercedes-Benz G-Class, albeit with a much smaller footprint. Taking a seat in it, you will notice solid black plastics with angular shapes held together with screws, reminding you of its utilitarian purpose.

Packed with safety features such as Hill Descent Control, as well as a low-range set of cogs, rest assured that its off-road character doesn't just end in the looks department. When you buy a Jimny, you can expect to go places that others can't.

With the first iteration introduced all the way back in 1970, the Suzuki Jimny is an off-roader with rich heritage. The decades of evolution have been distilled into a distinctive character that oozies out of the stout, boxy sheet metal with the current Jimny. When it comes to an off-road capable compact offering, there is no other car that comes right to mind.

The first thing you notice is its boxy silhouette. While most might be quick to jump on its similarities with a Mercedes-Benz G-Class, it really harks back to the Jimny's roots - look up the SJ20 Jimny and you'll see. Take a closer look and you'll notice bits and pieces inspired by the Jimnys of the yesteryears. For one, the clamshell bonnet and the area at the base of the A-pillar is reminiscent of the second-generation Jimny. Meanwhile the vertical slats at the front grille are found on both the second and third-generation models as well.

The Jimny has always been a capable off-roader with a compact footprint. Thanks to its kei-car sized body, it has a kerb weight of just over a tonne. This means its 1.5-litre engine, coupled with a set of low-range gears, really doesn't need to move more than a muscle to propel the Jimny over rough terrains.

Like a true-blue off-roader, the interior is filled with solid plastics in angular shapes - another nod to its heritage. Despite its utilitarian demeanour, the Jimny comes packed to the brim with advanced safety features - Lane Departure Warning, Electronic Stability Programme, Brake Assist Function and Hill Descent Control, you name it, it has it.

Want something small yet truly capable of going anywhere? With the Suzuki Jimny, you have the answer.
