Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t concern yourself with a stiff ride, though the SE is still relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be a good bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide selection of options, so you can pick and choose which ones are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs may be most of the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Suzuki Jimny Model. Coming off a redesign just a year ago, the Suzuki Jimny Model is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to decide on from.
As has been the case for some time, you may get the Suzuki Jimny Model with a four-cylinder engine or a more powerful V6, or you may get the miserly Suzuki Jimny Model Hybrid. On the highway, the Suzuki Jimny Model is comfortable and compliant. Suzuki Jimny Model also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Suzuki Jimny Model with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the Suzuki Jimny Model supplies a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you go with one of the upper trim levels. There are lots of options to choose from over the way.
The Suzuki Jimny Model can be as competent while they come. It’s well-priced generally, and modern feature content causes it to be supremely simple to drive. If you’re searching for something with a bit more class and space than the usual small sedan, the Suzuki Jimny Model might just be the sedan for you.
The Suzuki Jimny Model is the base trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Suzuki Jimny Model Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features found on the upper trim levels could be put into the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL speakers along with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Suzuki Jimny Model stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is straightforward to fold down to suit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The Suzuki Jimny Model features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s super easy to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so your front seat do not need to be scooted all the way forward.
