Suzuki Jimny Gebraucht SUV Off-Road, Engine, Handling and True Review

There was a time when if you wanted a small off-roader than the Suzuki Jimny Gebraucht was one of your only options. These days, however, there is a lot more competition because the popularity of the SUV especially small ones means there is now no shortage of cars that offer chunky 4×4 styling. sure not many of them off the 4 Wheel Drive but most people just want the look rather than the off Roading ability that’s what makes the Suzuki Jimny Gebraucht a very different indeed.

You see this thing might be small but it is designed with proper off-roading in mind. Not only does it have 4WD but it also has low range gears an old-school ladder frame chassis and an even older school rigid axle suspension front and rear. Chuck in the lofty ground clearance and short overhangs and you’ve got a car that should, in theory, be able to reach parts that other small soft roaders cannot reach. This latest versions Suzuki Jimny Gebraucht which is due to go on sale in January 2019is off to a great start with its new round headlamps upright design and bumper mounted rear light clusters. It looks very inch the baby Mercedes G Wagon and that is about as rugged as off-roaders.

Question is one it may look like a G Wagon can it pummel the landscape into submission like one where we’ve come to Frankfurt in Germany to find out.

Suzuki Jimny Gebraucht Off-Road Test

We jumped into steep muddy slopes, big boulders to scramble, deep ruts and the Suzuki Jimny Gebraucht has taken it all in its stride. There was the steep slope and then we headed towards uphill where we find all sorts of bumps and ruts in it, where Jimny death with it nice and easy. Is it going to get you as far into the wilderness as a Range Rover or a Jeep? No, but it’s going to get you a lot further than your average Renault Capture or Nissan Juke would.

The thing is when the car is so focused on off-roading abilities there’s a very real danger that everything goes completely to pop when you put it on a normal road that is defiantly the case with Suzuki Jimny Gebrauch of old which were uncomfortable, uncontrolled and borderline terrifying at times.

Suzuki Jimny Gebrauch Handling

Happily, the latest Suzuki Jimny Gebrauch is a bit better. Yes there’s still a constant tremor through the floor of the car when you’re on a surface there’s anything less than perfect but it’s not as pronounced as it was before and potholes don’t give us quite the same whack up the backside. So while it’s still not as comfortable as a conventional SUV it’s a lot more civilised than existing Jimny owners will be used to.

Yes! the handling is still a bit unruly with loads of body roll and very slow steering but who cares you don’t buy a car like this for its sharpness impotently you do find that the tires give you loads of grip to keep things secure.

Suzuki Jimny Gebraucht Engine

The 101 horsepower 1.5-litre petrol engine will be perky enough for most buyers but it only has five gears so the engine is a bit rowdy at motorway speeds. The trashy noise that the engine gives off is more reminiscent of a three-cylinder engine rather than the four.

Suzuki Jimny Gebraucht Interior

Interior wise everything feels solid and reasonably good for quality. The layout is simple so everything is easy to use and the big windows give you a decent view out in all directions. However, the steering wheel doesn’t adjust for reach and the narrow cabin means it’s easy to band your on the door when you’re whirling away at the steering wheel.

Space is pretty tight for anyone who has to sit in the back and there’s barely any boot space with rear seats in place. The boot is a lot bigger when you fold the rear seats down and you get a perfectly flat load area. Detail on Suzuki Jimny Interior.

Suzuki Jimny Gebraucht True Review

In most tangible quantifiable ways the Jimny isn’t a brilliant car. For the average motorist, it will be too uncomfortable, too uncultured, too cramped, too noisy and generally too compromised. If you don’t regularly make use of its impressive off-road ability then you probably be better off with a more conventional small SUV.

However, the Suzuki Jimny Gebraucht has developed an incredibly dedicated following over the years and that’s due pretty much solely to the undeniable honest charm that seeps out of every panel gap. An importantly the latest car has every ounce of that job perhaps more than every so the hardcore fans are going to absolutely love it.

One thing that will prove critically important though is the price and that’s something that Suzuki has yet to confirm. It’ll need to be aggressive and attainable if the Jimny is going to maintain its cult status. So all you hardcore fans out there keep your fingers crossed.
