The most detailed video I've seen so far......and does appear to really be a lever operated transfer.



Edit: I haven't been following this closely enough. Credit to gilburton. This appears to be the pro video he posted with content added by a dealer

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

One thing I've noticed on the global Suzuki site is that the standard tyre size is listed as being 195/80R15 for the Euro-spec model. That means that a move to 215/75R15 is only a +1.5% change over stock, rather than the +5.3% change at present from stock. Should lessen the impact of moving to BFG AT.

Very positive - 4 stars. I'm sure Auto Express only gave the previous model 1 star out of 5.

The Yeti was pretty much the only SUV on the market that I found interesting, a real shame they replaced it with the Karoqzzzzzzz. I'm sure the new one is a better all-round vehicle, but by gum it's boring looking, has none of the quirky interest of the Yeti, just another identikit SUV which could have a VW/Audi/Seat badge on and you'd never notice.

That's what makes the new Jimny so appealing, it hasn't (yet) fallen into the trap of trying to appeal to the mass market, still an interesting niche product, long may it remain so!

I was also surprised tof hear they are doing away with the Yeti, a practical and popular car I thought.
