2023 Suzuki Jimny Review, For Sale, Colours, Interior & News in Australia

The Suzuki Jimny represents the continuation of a small 4×4 legend that has been exceeding expectations for five decades.

It is not very spacious or particularly comfortable, but surprisingly, it comes with most of the modern features you would expect in a new car. It even includes decent safety features, although it falls short with a three-star ANCAP safety rating. However, this rugged little charmer trades on its cuteness and heritage, epitomizing honest and simple motoring at a good price. Additionally, it is surprisingly capable off-road. The car was completely rebuilt in 2019 and now offers just one powertrain option: Suzuki’s clever 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, which can be paired with either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission.

Current prices for the Suzuki Jimny range from $30,490 for the Jimny GL Lite (in Queensland) to $33,490 for the Jimny Heritage Limited Edition.

Suzuki Jimny FAQs

Do you know if Australia will get the new Suzuki Jimny five-door this year or next?
The backlog of orders for the retro little Suzuki Jimny means that buyers need to be patient. At the start of this year, Carsguide was told that the average waiting time between purchase and delivery in Australia was between six and eight months. While ever Suzuki is experiencing demand like that, you wouldn’t expect any rush to expand the range.

That said, reports have emerged that Suzuki has, indeed, green-lighted a five-door Jimny which would have those two extra doors as well as the possibility of a turbocharged engine and even a mild-hybrid driveline (mainly to suit European tastes). The five-door concept is said to be 300mm longer and will probably weigh a little more as well.

At this stage, rumours suggest the five-door wouldn’t be in production until 2023 at the very earliest, but given Australia’s demand for the two-door version, you’d expect Suzuki to give serious consideration to sending the five-door Down Under.

Stretching out service intervals?

As much as I don’t like to recommend that you don’t service your car I think in this case you could extend the time between services, but don’t let it go beyond 12 months.

Ongoing issues with 2000 Suzuki Jimny

Because of the long time that has passed since the crash it will be very hard to connect the problems you are having to the prang. Crank angle sensors often fail on all makes and models, I wouldn’t attribute that to the crash, and the head and head gasket problems you have had are unlikely to be related either. The second instance of head cracking and the head gasket failure are more likely to be the result of poor repairs to the head when it first cracked.
