Do you think prices will eventually drop to list or lower? I have the opportunity to get a used one now at £21,000 but it means taking a £4,000 loss on what we paid for our Land Rover Defender last year.
If we wait a year the Defender will be worth the same, or a bit more.
Some dealers are asking £30,000 for new Jimnys although l am not sure they will get it.
I wonder if the silliness will subside once all the new ones are sold.

“Only” £30,995 !!

Yes eventually, but when is anybody's guess. With every passing year they edge a little closer to yesterday's news and rot just a little more like every variation of Jimny before them.
Eventually we will stop selling petrol and they will be free to a good home.
Not a sound investment, but great fun now. If you want one get it, but don't pay 30K!!!!

It's a shame they've stuck the side protection rubbers on upside down

They are playing on the "rarity" value. However as shipments are going to continue this will hopefully reduce the profiteering as more come in at list price.

Shipments are continuing? I thought there were no more for the UK?

Although there’s talk of a commercial version next year. That’s how Land Rover got around emissions with the old Defender, they reclassified them as commercial vehicles.

Ask your dealer....I understand there has been a reversal of decision, UK shipments to continue (at a low rate and possibly with a new engine) as well as a commercial version.

That’s good news and not surprising considering how popular the Jimny is.
I actually tossed off an email to Suzuki about the dealers profiteering, l can understand a couple of thousand over list but £31,000 is somewhat excessive.
In reality dealers can advertise used (not new) Jimnys for £100,000 if they want, it’s a free country, but Suzuki did reply.

Not sure where that rumour came from.

No sign of it being re-introduced.

Do Suzuki UK really mean that production has ceased, or that imports to the UK/EU have ceased? I thought they were still being built for non-EU markets

They are being built for other markets.

I understand that the decision to stop had been reversed and imports to the UK are going to continue along with the possibility of a new engine

Well, it would be great if it was re introduced in the UK.
But Suzuki still absolutely insist that it won't happen. Why would they say that if there were plans to start importing it again.
My guess is, that if it was re introduced it would need to have a hybrid powertrain, as all Suzuki vehicles are going that way.
Unless it's re introduced as a commercial vehicle. That's how Land Rover managed to keep the Defender in production from 2012 until it was finally killed off in 2016.
