Why are these called Jimny and not Samurai?

What? I had no idea. That's hilarious. Usually a respected nameplate (or even just a well known one) is money...

Depending on the 4x4 system, that should be quite capable from the factory.

It should be a lot of fun in a variety of terrain. Short wheelbase and small footprint can do wonders, as we all know. Of course, for the same reasons that's one vehicle I would not want lifted. Maybe slightly bigger and especially wider tires, but no suspension lift.


Variety is good. Here it has been all-Wranglers since 2012 when they finally got the powertrain right and especially now that the new Wrangler is actually ok on road. 4Runners sell well but few make it off pavement. The most anticipated vehicle is the return of the Ford Bronco. Toyota has not updated its trucks in a decade and what happens next is anyone's guess. There is even a chance the iconic 4Runner might get axed instead of updated.

Its so much smaller shorter then old foresters.
And they can go like tanks with lockers and lift larger tires. Just they where never good on actual road , not comfy , loud, slow. Maybe this new will put them into new level.
Being still small it should crawl like goat anywhere front is kinda agresive and with custom bumper would look even better. Car for 1 person and recovery gear

Could not agree more: a goat-like, 1-person 4x4!

Just don't lift it...should be pretty easy to roll it over end over end when climbing anything really steep.

The more I see the new Jimny, the more I think why??? It is sooo ugglllyyyy. For comparison...

2017 Jimny. Nice curves, looks great, so very capable
https://mr4x4.com.au/2017-suzuki-jim...vailable-sale/

2018 Jimny. I want to dig my eyes out with a blunt spoon
https://mr4x4.com.au/new-suzuki-jimn...sletter+%23214

Such a huge backwards step. Looks like the old Jimny is about to become a lot more popular!
