It’s official, the new Suzuki Jimny is back: it will be launched on the French market in spring 2021, now in a two-seater light utility version.
Unveiled in 2018 at the Paris Motor Show, the latest generation of Suzuki Jimny had a rather short career in Europe, since it was abruptly stopped at the start of 2020, because of its CO emissions2 deemed too important for the standards of the Old Continent, which exposed Suzuki to heavy fines, despite the success of its small 4×4.
To escape these measures, the Japanese manufacturer has just announced that it will relaunch its Jimny from April 2021 in France, with a little sleight of hand that allows it to overcome these limitations: Suzuki has indeed removed the rear seat, and installed a separation grille behind the two seats … thus transforming it into commercial vehicle !

Even if it had to do without its back seat, the Suzuki Jimny now offers a wide 863 liter trunk (33 liters more than the previous version with the rear seats folded down) with a flat floor, while retaining the rest of its specific characteristics such as the ladder frame, its ground clearance increased by 210 mm and its transmission system full AllGrip Pro. Hill start assist, traction control and hill descent braking assistance are still there to make journeys easier on difficult terrain.
Available only in finish Privilege, the new Suzuki Jimny available in 2-seater LCV version will be marketed from April 2021, at a starting price from € 20,490 TTC in France.
