Those measurements mean that it will have an identical wheelbase to the current Jimny, and it will be slightly narrower. I find that surprising - it certainly looks a bit wider, especially in the spy shot when it is driving alongside a current generation. Maybe it's just that the wing mirrors are just smaller. I was hoping it would be wider and that would improve stability a little.

I've just joined (waves), having seen the pics of the new Jimny. I've always had a hankering for one, especially after the demise of the Defender, which was my first 4x4 love, but wasn't entirely sold on the looks. This new one looks fantastic, I see some FJ series Land Cruiser in there, especially in the Ivory paint scheme. Time to start pestering my local dealer :)

A better shot of the interior is on the internet. Seems to have a key start rather than keyless

Could it just be a cover for the key ignition incase the battery in the fob goes for the keyless start if you get what I mean?

It's still confusing to me what is considered a baseline model. Even the Global Suzuki website (showing the new Jimny) has the disclaimer:

Vehicles shown in this site are of Europe specification.
The appearance, colours, and equipment of vehicles may differ according to market and grade.


For whatever it's worth (in Japanese) from:
www.suzuki.co.jp/car/jimny/special/

JL Model:
- Main equipment plus:
● Front Multi Reflector Halogen Fog Lamp ● Full automatic air conditioner ● Keyless push start system Electric retractable remote control door mirrors ● Smoke glass ● 15 inch steel wheel etc.

JC Model:
- Main equipment (plus JL)
● Dual sensor brake support ● LED Headlamp ● Head lamp washer ● Cruise control system ● LED side turn lamp attaching door mirror ● 15-inch aluminum wheel etc.

So is "main equipment" the base version of the JDM model? Push button would be on all (most) European models? Martin's picture is left hand drive so it isn't the JDM version?

I commented a while back in the other new Jimny thread that this is the strangest vehicle rollout I've ever seen. I haven't changed my mind.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

I get the impression from my sources that the pre-launch interest has taken Suzuki a bit by surprise. I think they were anticipating a Japan launch and then see how it went. This means that there is little/no information on what market differences will be and I suspect the specification is yet to be tied down for each market. Certainly the UK does not seem to know what it will be getting, it was only last week that they even heard that they would be getting the Jimny at all.

so if it uses Allgrip it should have hill decent and a button to lock all 4 wheels upto 18 mph like the Ignis, is this like having an ARB front and back?

another couple of renderings.

I don't think the term Allgrip refers to one particular system, I think Suzuki use it to cover all their AWD/4WD systems. The current Jimny is called Allgrip Pro in a few markets (see link).

Interesting, if you look at this ignis picture and then my picture, the 3rd switch along could be Hill Descent Control.

Just guessing of course and it will all be revealed next week but HDC is a function of the ABS system so once ABS is installed it is comparatively easy to engineer and does not need a specific transfer box. So I reckon it has some of the Allgrip functions from the Ignis
