Retro Cute: Say hello to the 2019 Suzuki Jimny

AUTO NEWS

New Jimny shows up at Suzuki website

The cat is pretty much out of the bag for Suzuki.

After leaked photos of the all-new Jimny were posted a couple of weeks ago, Suzuki has steered into the skid, so to speak, as they have just revealed the first photos of the next-generation 4x4 on their global website.

Like the photos from before, the all-new Jimny dons a retro-inspired design that takes inspiration from classic 4x4s. The boxy-profile, along with the blacked-out front fascia. is a direct nod to the Samurai and SJs of old.

Based on the imagery, the 2019 Jimny will be available in either two-tone or single-tone colors. The former is available in three hues: Kinetic Yellow, Brisk Blue Metallic and Chiffron Ivory Metallic. The latter, on the other hand, will be available in the following body colors: Jungle Green, Bluish Black Pearl 3, Medium Gray, Silky Silver Metallic and Superior White.

Besides getting a closer look at the the exterior, we were also able to get a peek inside the mini 4x4. The cabin carries a retro-modern theme that mixes both old and the new. The 2019 Jimny features an upright dashboard that is complemented by what appears to be a touchscreen infotainment system and an automatic climate control system.

In addition, the interior of the Jimny also appears to have borrowed several styling cues from the new-generation Swift. This can be seen on the dual gauge cluster with multi-info display, center console design and three-spoke steering wheel.

Underneath its boxy design, the 2019 Jimny still makes use of a ladder frame chassis. It even comes with what appears to be a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is connected to a 4WD system. With details regarding the Jimny's powertrain still scarce, we have to wait for the official unveiling to know what Suzuki did to make the Jimny more capable on- and off-road. What we do know is that it will be available with either a manual or automatic transmission.

The 2019 Suzuki Jimny will most likely make its world debut next month.
