Worth the Wait! The super Instagramible Jimny is one of Australia’s most requested Suzuki models

It’s not hard to see why, either: cute, practical, reliable and cheap, it ticks all the boxes. Here’s why: 

Retro look reimagined: When you compare the Australian classic, Toyota J 40 from the 1980s to the new Jimny you'll won’t be surprised that go things come back into fashion. Even with 40 years between cars, there's a classic design which people love. From the simplistic interior, flat-roof boxy design, big windows and lifted kit this little car offers a classic design with the latest tech.

Bang for your buck: Going off retail pricing, the single-spec Jimny is $28,490 plus on-road costs and for that, you get a reasonable standard equipment list for the money. Automatic LED headlights with halogen daytime running lights, 15-inch alloy wheels, climate control, a 7.0-inch touchscreen with inbuilt navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a two-speaker sound system, a leather steering wheel, electric front windows, cruise control, a trip computer, headlight washers and a full-size alloy spare wheel are standard. Of course, off-road aids such as hill descent control and hill hold assist are standard too.

Off-road pedigree: 4-wheel driving is no longer restricted to people who can afford to spend $100k on an off road set up. The Jimny is still based around a traditional steel, ladder frame chassis, but it gained a new, stiffer foundation for the car’s 2018 rebirth, supporting rigid front and rear axles with separate differentials, and a four-cylinder petrol engine with 100bhp and 95lb ft – not to mention 200cc more capacity than its predecessor. 

All-round fun; when you search #jimny on Instagram you get a massive 935k of results. Reason why, they are a in peoples highlight real of life. Yes, Instagram is mostly for positing about the good times, and over 935k good times have featured a Jimny. Coincidence? I think not. People post about this car on their online highlight reel because the moments they capture with this car are highlights.

Practical: In COVID has done anything positive, it’s gotten more people to want to explore their backyard, and Australia is a big backyard. More and more people are heading into the country on the weekends. The Jimny has the great ability to be a practical town car and then get you off road with ease. Want to pimp your car? Go ahead, there’s options for adding cargo racks, roof storage, racks and etc. The size won’t impact you’re ability to move into the smallest car parks, like you might experience or see in large camping set ups.
