Things We Saw In The 2018 Suzuki Jimny Leaks

2018 suzuki-jimny (5)

To say that the Suzuki Jimny is so doggone cute is an understatement. If you want the “look” of a Jeep Wrangler but don’t have the cash for it, the Jimny is your next best thing. It’s affordable, but it managed to perform well and look good as well (though the last one is debatable).

Do you know that Mercedes-Benz wants to have a mini version of its G-Class? However, they still don’t have it, probably because it’s too expensive to make. Well, it looks like Suzuki not only has the same thing in mind, they actually outperformed the German brand by releasing the model.

G-Class Lookalike

Don’t fret. The Japanese automaker’s upgrade of the Jimny is every inch a Mercedes-Benz G-Class, minus the badge, of course. Mercedes fans will be happy to know that Suzuki didn’t exactly copy what the G-Class looks like. If you already saw the previous generation Jimny, you know that this particular model is influenced by the Japanese brand. It has boxy lines and round headlights—features that belong to the original Jimny.

Oh, just before you begin to question it, the Jimny predates the G-Class.

Nothing Extraordinary

There is no official information yet on what the new Jimny will come packing with. In previous generations, Suzuki’s subcompact SUV rode on a body-on-frame platform. If the leaks are reliable, this is what we’ll probably find in the new generation, as well as the choice of either 2- or 4-wheel-drive. Experts believe that Suzuki will delve into the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine for the Jimny. This is the same engine that debuted in the 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport.

The engine can produce 140 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque.

Mark Your Calendar

The October 2017 Tokyo Motor Show looks to be the perfect opportunity for Suzuki to introduce its new Jimny. But US residents may not be able to take a glimpse of the new Jimny. Remember Suzuki exited the US market back in 2012?

Top 3 Things About The New Suzuki Swift Sport Hatchback

It’s honestly cute as a button, so is it any wonder why the Suzuki Swift Sport Hatchback remains to be a favorite in whatever market it is in. The Swift Sport Hatchback looks like the Mini Cooper minus that expensive price tag. Perhaps, that’s where its appeal comes from.

Since it was introduced to the market back in 2005, the Swift Sport has been a favorite. It remains to be one today, though there are lots of competitions out there.

1. Powertrain

Because this is not your usual Swift, the Sport hatchback weighs 2,100 pounds and receives some muscles through the turbocharged 1.4-liter inline-four that can deliver 138 horsepower. It is paired with a six-speed manual transmission that works well with the front-wheel drive system.

To experience on-road smoothness and maneuverability, the Suzuki Swift Sport Hatchback is also equipped with 17-inch wheels while its tires are 1.6 inches wider than the previous and current generations. Why do the tires have to be wider? These will help the car for high-speed stability.

2. Exterior

Who doesn’t love how the Swift Sport Hatchback looks? For anyone who cannot purchase a Mini Cooper, here’s your next best thing. Now that the car has been upgraded, the grille and the front intakes are larger and angrier-looking than the regular model’s. There are also two big exhaust outlets that can be seen from the rear bumper.

3. Safety

It may be tiny, but the Swift is looking after its driver and passengers. Among its suite of active-safety tech are automated emergency braking and lane departure warning.

The Suzuki Swift Sport Hatchback can compete with the Ford Fiesta ST, but unfortunately for American consumers, they won’t ever get their hands on a Suzuki since this has pulled out from American shores years ago. For whatever reason, the brand failed to capture the American market.

5 Elements To Love About The 2017 Suzuki Ignis

It is not easy to stand out in the compact car segment, but it looks like the 2017 Suzuki Ignis is doing just that. Reviving what it calls the “light SUV,” Suzuki combines the charm and functionality of a truly compact SUV with the customization option you thought you’ll only find in the expensive Mini.

Here are the key features of the auto:

1. Customizable

One of the unique things about the Ignis is that it’s completely customizable. Just like the Vitara, you can choose what style you want your Ignis to have. Here are some options: grille, fog light bezels, and alloy wheels in white, orange, or blue; and mirror caps in white, orange, blue, red or black.

That’s only for the exterior. Inside, there’s another personalization kit you can choose. It’s a kind of a mix-and-match style we can only find in the Mini, though the Ignis offers this at a way lower price bracket. It also has a faster delivery since every customizable element has been dealer-fitted.

2. Spacious Enough

The space inside is generous for its width. There is plenty of headroom because of the tall roof, but front-row passengers will be more intimately seated close than in the regular-sized SUVs.

3. Affordable

The Ignis has a base model price of just $15,990, which is way, way below the average price we usually spend on compact cars and SUVs.

4. Simple

There are only two models to choose from—the entry-level GL with the option for a five-speed manual transmission or CVT automatic or the upscale GLX with the CVT automatic.

The GL has the following features: standard fabric seat trim, cruise control with speed limiter, leather-wrapped steering wheel, halogen headlights and fog lights, and 15-inch steel wheels with full wheel covers.

The GLX, on the other hand, packs these: keyless entry and start, electronic climate control, LED headlights, privacy glass, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and 16-inch alloy wheels.

5. Decent Power

In terms of power, there is not much there, actually. The GL and GLX are both powered by a 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 66kW and 120Nm of torque.
