All-new 2018 Suzuki Jimny should arrive in 2018 and could be showcased as a pre-production concept at some Auto Show in 2017. 2018 Suzuki Jimny will be the representative of the fourth generation of this legendary model. Twenty years back, more precisely in 1998, debuted the third generation Jimny SUV. Regardless of the need for change, they are in some way superfluous.
2018 Suzuki Jimny is long announced with a full redesign. Change of platform, drive units and external design. However, the new, fourth generation will not be a complete innovation on the market.
2018 Suzuki Jimny Design
Baleno’s modular platform, however, will not be the basis for the new Jimny 2018 SUV. It will probably be based on a ladder-frame platform. Except that the company obviously does not want to change the appearance of this vehicle. It will not change its drive unit either. Much bigger problem Suzuki companies have to offer this model in markets where strict regulation of passenger and vehicle safety is introduced. In order for the Suzuki Jimny 2018 to have side airbags and all the necessary safety equipment, its complete redesign is guaranteed.
ALLGRIP auto all-wheel drive system, with which Jimny SUV was equipped all these years, will be replaced. Advanced ALLGRIP ‘Pro’ system will appear in its place. The new system involves a transfer case and a limited slip differential. As for drive units this mini SUV under the hood is still a 1.3 L petrol engine, which offers 85 hp. Depending on the market, the 2018 Suzuki Jimny will be able to find a deal with a 0.66-liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine. The 1.0-liter Booster Jet turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine and 1.2-liter Dial Jet naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine are also available.
