ABOUT:The Suzuki Jimny is a line of Off-road vehicles from Suzuki produced since 1968.
The history of Suzuki four-wheel-drive cars dates to 1968. Suzuki bought former Japanese automaker Hope Motor Company which had introduced fifteen small off-road vehicles called the Hope Star ON360. The first Suzuki-branded 4-wheel drive, the LJ10, was introduced in 1970. The LJ10 had a 359 cc air-cooled, two-stroke, in-line two-cylinder engine. The liquid-cooled LJ20 was introduced in 1972 with the cooling changed due to newly enacted emission regulations, and it gained 3 hp. In 1975, Suzuki complemented the LJ20 with the LJ50, which had a larger 539 cc, two-stroke, in-line three-cylinder engine and bigger differentials. This was originally targeted at the Australian market, but more exports soon followed.
The larger 1.3-litre Jimny was originally equipped with the G13BB engine also used in the JB32. The 80 hp G13BB engine was replaced in Japan with the January 2000 introduction of the newly designed VVT 16-valve M-engine, but soldiered on in Spanish-built softtops until 2005. For the diesel loving continental European market, in 2004 the turbodiesel Jimny JB53 was introduced, built by Santana and using a Renault-built DDiS 1,461 cc K9K engine. Power was originally 65 hp but was increased to 86 hp in 2005, the same as in gasoline versions. It remains unavailable in Britain and Ireland.
Jimny features a part time 4WD system. On its dashboard, there are three buttons - 2WD, 4WD and 4WD-L. The 2WD is default when it runs as RWD. When 4WD is pressed, the front wheels are also engaged as drive with high gears. The 4WD-L engages front wheels as well as low ratio gears. Being a part time 4WD, there is no center differential or viscous coupling. The Jimny should not be driven on normal road surface in 4WD mode.
The Jimny features large windows, giving excellent visibility, apart from a rather serious blind spot caused by the oversized "B" pillar. The large amount of glass also creates a greenhouse effect, and the Jimny comes with air conditioning as a standard feature in some regions.
The Jimny is a back to the basics vehicle like the Gypsy and the overall design is kept simple. With its small dimensions and boxy shape the SUV will be very practical for the city and the rural areas. The three doors configuration, short wheelbase and the rectangular headlights make this SUV look robust. At the front is an imposing bumper which is fitted with small air intakes. When Suzuki started to design the Jimny the purpose was to be practical and the SUV’s lines remain true to that objective without any fancy lines or unnecessary details. The rear has two big vertical tail lamps and the spare wheel is located on the tailgate.
In 2009 Santana Motor of Spain stopped the agreement with Suzuki to make the Canvas Top version, which since then is no longer available. In 2011 Santana Motor went bankrupt. The Souza Ramos Group of Brasil, who used to make Mitsubishi cars under license, will start manufacturing the Suzuki Jimny in 2012 in Brasil to compensate the lost of production capacity from Santana Motor. It is not known yet if the Canvas Top version will be manufactured also in Brasil. Since 2009, in some countries like Spain, Suzuki no longer support the cars that were manufactured by Santana Motor, arguing that they are not Suzuki cars but Santana's cars.
