2019 Suzuki Jimny spied in factory yard

Check out the colours on Suzuki’s compact off-roader

A whole bunch of next-generation Suzuki Jimny SUVs have been spied sitting at the back of the company’s factory.

As we’ve seen with leaked presentation slides, sneaky photos from the factory floor and production prototypes, the next-generation Jimny dumps the current car’s more modern design for something that’s unashamedly retro.

This latest set of photos, first posted to a Japanese YouTube channel, show off the range of colours to be offered on the Jimny.

These cars seem to be entry-level domestic market models, which probably comply with kei-class rules, as they miss out on the wheel arch flares seen in earlier spy photos.

In January this year, Michael Pachota, Suzuki Automobiles Australia’s general manager, told CarAdvice the new Jimny will “hopefully be here by quarter four”.

We know the new Jimny will continue to be a true off-roader with a ladder frame, four-wheel drive, high-profile tyres, and low-range gearing.

While the styling of both exterior and interior play heavily on Suzuki’s history, the new model should feature more safety and infotainment equipment.
