As one of our main correspondent in the general vicinity will you be attending Tokyo on our behalf to get us some first hand intelligence on the new Jimny?


Now you have me thinking.....

Darn you! I can't get it out of my mind now. Admission tickets are a little under $15 USD, Airline tickets from Manila to Tokyo are reasonable. I might just do it if it weren't for the fact that everyone there would be speaking in some kind of secret code.

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

Huh they have gone up in price? I thought I was struggling a bit much to find a VVT for <£2.5k. I was hoping for a value crash when the new model got released.

While they may be correct for the EU version they don't have much resemblance to the test mule we have been seeing?

I also know which one I prefer.

Temeraire (2018 quasar grey automatic)
One of the last 200ish of the gen3s, probably.
ADOS Attention Deficit Ooooh Shiny!

Just seen a video taken at a motor show. The info board in front of the jimny is titled "Suzuki jimny allgrip" New 4x4 system maybe?

Not long to go 'til the 45th Tokyo Auto Show on 27th October 2017

Link to show previews... www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-t...o-motor-show-preview

I'd drive and buy this


This would be a fun vehicle, the ground clearance would be enormous and the thought of an electric motor in each wheel, obviating the need for tailshafts, axles, gearboxes and transfer cases with electrics full-torque from start etc is very interesting indeed.


Looking forward to whatever comes :whistle:

Yeah think you might be right, I have seen a article on Suzuki global about the AllGrip and they show a jimny with AllGrip Pro, probably be another option

www.globalsuzuki.com/allgrip

The vid for the Ignis is cheese on cheese with double cheese on top :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

Saying that the Mrs absolutely loves her one ;) :)

the current jimny is all grip select,the new one is going to be all grip pro the same as old grande vitara 2.4 we had,going into low it cracks and banged going in and out ,if it would come out,is linked to abs and traction control,main module went a comen fault on it and swifts,between £1400 and £1750 if you fit it yourselfe,when it plays up cuts power as well,after seing the shape and build quality of last 3 suzukies changing brands,last jimny was got because dealer did a good deal on vitara without seeing dashboard like a Christmas tree
