The design principles are functional too, as this will still be a auto built specifically for tough terrain when it arrives. There's also Suzuki's familiar Bluetooth Smartphone Linkage Display Audio unit with a 7-inch touchscreen on top models. There's even a driver information display sandwiched in between the dials in the instrument binnacle. The seats themselves fold down flat with the backs coated in plastic to stop them from getting dirty or marked. We look forward to doing just that when we get a new Jimny for review. Suzuki's popular 1.0-litre BoosterJet three-cylinder won't power the new Jimny, but instead a brand new, simpler 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine called K15B arrives. The new engine is physically smaller than the old one and it's more powerful too, offering 75kW at 6000rpm (up from 62.5kW) and 130Nm of torque at 4000rpm (up from 110Nm at 4100rpm).
It has, however, retained one special feature that has earned it an nearly cult-like following the world over; the extra grunt gets channeled via your choice of either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission, and an old-school manual transfer case to either the rear wheels (2H) or all four (4H/4L) as the terrain demands, with automatic individual braking of any wheel that tries to break free (AllGrip Pro). As measured on outgoing NEDC fuel economy and Carbon dioxide regulations, the new Jimny claims 41.5mpg with the manual box, dipping to 37.6mpg for the auto. Suzuki's Allgrip Pro AWD system is offered as standard.
Being a proper off-roader, the Jimny comes with a low range transfer gear alongside 2H (2WD-high gear) and 4H (4WD-high gear) modes. Short overhangs front and rear make for an approach angle of 37 degrees and a departure angle of 49 degrees. Adding to the off-road character of the Jimny, the rear axle of the mini-SUV benefits from three-link suspension with coil springs.

Google's controversial human sounding AI is being tested for call centres
The idea of calling a customer service rep and not knowing whether you're talking to a robot or a human is a bit unsettling. Googles Duplex demonstration was very likely one of the most buzzed about topics at this past Google I/O conference.
The Walking Dead Season 9 Poster Will Leave You With Many Questions
His beard is trimmed and he looks more like season 1 Rick (albeit with more grey in his beard) than the Rick of seasons 7 and 8. AMC has released a new poster for season nine of The Walking Dead as well as the details for their San Diego Comic-Con panels.
While it has a ladder-frame chassic, Suzuki says it has worked on the new Jimny's on-road handling with a new steering damper on the front suspension, created to minimise steering wheel vibration. Other safety features include Hill hold and descent control, 6 airbags, electronic stability programme (ESP), Tyre pressure monitoring system and more.
Suzuki said it's paid attention to the Jimnys that have gone before in the design of the new one, borrowing styling cues from every generation for this fourth-generation model.
