Suzuki Jimny

(2018 - present)

The Suzuki Jimny is a small SUV, but is far more oriented to off-road work than any other cars of similar size on sale in the UK. The latest model, launched in 2018, replaced a model that had been in production for 20 years.

The Jimny has received a broad range of scores from the UK media, which reflects its rather narrow niche. It has been highly praised for its off-roading ability, but criticised for its on-road handling and poor safety rating compared to other vehicles of similar size and price.
