2019 Suzuki Jimny: Australian launch date set

By Tristan Tancredi, 05 Dec 2018 News

2019 Suzuki Jimny Australian launch date set news

Australia Day launch for all-new Jimny

THE diminutive off-roader we’re all eagerly anticipating will be available at dealerships Australia-wide from January 26, 2019.

When it lands, the fourth-gen Suzuki Jimny will be powered by a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated inline four-cylinder petrol engine, capable of 75kW and 130Nm. It will be mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission, with part-time 4x4.

Michael Pachota, Suzuki Australia’s General Manager, said launching the upcoming Jimny – as well as the new Vitara (also landing with dealers on the same day) – was appropriate for the Suzuki brand.

“Both the Jimny and Vitara have a strong heritage and following in Australia, which has been none more evident than the demand for pre-orders since the all-new Jimny was confirmed for the Australian market,” Pachota said.

4x4 Wishlist: Will the new Jimny spawn a Stockman?

Like its predecessor, the Jimny will retain a ladder-frame chassis, live front and rear axles, and dual-range transmission. In addition, it will get a stiffened chassis, Electronic Stability Control, dual sensor-brake support and be compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

So far, more than 200 enthusiasts have already pre-ordered the pint-sized off-roader.
