Suzuki Jimny

Aaah, the Suzuki Jimny. If we’re honest, there are a lot of other cars you really should think of buying before this two-door box-chassis 4x4 that dates back to the late 1980s.

Rebuilt from the ground up in 2011, it offers just one powertrain; Suzuki’s clever 1.3-litre four-cylinder petrol backed by a five-speed manual or four-speed auto.

Current prices range from $20,990 for the Jimny (base) to $22,990 for the Jimny (base).
