Suzuki's baby boxy SUV has been unveiled ahead of its international launch next month, with fresh images of the fourth-generation Jimny dropping on the brand's international website.
Details remain a little scarce, but the international reveal does uncover a few important tidbits
For one, the new Jimny will be offered with eight colour variations, covering single colour and cool-looking two-tone shades. A single interior image focuses only on the front seats, revealing a simple setup headlined by a touchscreen multimedia unit, a thick dash-mounted grab handle and a set of chunky dials controlling the air-conditioning.
The interior, Suzuki says, is "straightforward and practical with down-to-earth beauty", but we'll let you make your own minds up on that.

The Jimny rides on a ladder frame, with a part-time 4WD system with a low-range system. It’s been an icon of cut-price ruggedness since its debut in 1970, so expect a new model to trade on-road comfort for off-road prowess. But what you can’t necessarily expect, though, is for the new Jimny to make its triumphant return to Australia.

“We can still not confirm whether New Jimny will be available for the Australian market. However, we are hopeful, with Suzuki Motor Corporation's recent reveal, our request for this vehicle will be confirmed soon,” says Suzuki Australia’s GM, Michael Pachota.
That said, we think it almost certainly will make an appearance here. And so readers, watch this space.
