Jimny: A Compact Off-Roader That Defies Boundaries

By Aira

Suzuki came into 2022 with new look and major updates on some of their oldest models. The new model includes a refreshed Jimny featuring a brand new powerful engine.

Its Boosterjet engine provides effortless energy and lively feel within small SUV proportions. It’s ideal for roads that are sealed, but can also cope with difficult terrain.

Swift Sport

Suzuki’s smallest Swift gained a more sporting version for 2017. Its Swift Sport gets the same 1.4-litre K14C Boosterjet engine as before but it puts out 140 PS (103 kW, 138 bhp DIN) and 220 Nm (170 lbft) of torque. The appeal is enhanced by a new rear spoiler, as well as wider tyres. The dual exhaust is also available, as well as an interior with red accents. The safety kit is equipped with advanced front detection, steering for lane-keeping and traffic sign recognition.

The cabin of the Sport is unattractive, made up of hard plastics. But the thermostatic controls that rotate for heating as well as air conditioning, along with the leather steering wheel in a D shape, are appealing. There’s also a handy graphic display on top of the digital instruments which display how much braking power and engine is used such as the turbo boost gauge and the G-force. The seats in the sport category with plenty of padding are very comfortable as well as they provide Swift Sport a real hot hatchback feel. Even the back seats make a great fit for three, although there is a little headroom. Cargo space in the boot isn’t great, though.


The Jimny is a tiny four-wheel drive which can travel the places most urban vehicles would fear to tread. It is a true off-roader with a rugged ladder frame chassis, 4WD and a robust 1.5L engine.

The very first Jimny, which was originally referred to as HopeStar was derived by a Japan Kei vehicle that had an all-four-wheel drive system that was part-time. The Jimny could operate in two-wheel drive when on roads that were sealed, but switch to four wheel drive if required.

It was the same design that was used in the full-size four-wheel drive automobiles like Toyota Land Cruisers. Thanks to this, and the sturdy, utilitarian interior the Jimny was able to travel places that other vehicles could not.

Vitara S

The Vitara S takes the already popular compact SUV and gives the vehicle a bit more power. Its 1.4-litre turbo engine for petrol is responsive and smooth with plenty of low-down torque. The smooth, automatic gearbox is coupled by the engine. This AllGrip 4×4 Traction is a great choice in off-roading. Sport mode helps make steering more fluid and responsive. The model comes with an additional tax on benefit-in kind of 20% and is more expensive than models, such as Diesel or petrol Vitara engines.

The Vitara S is a lot of pleasure to drive. The Vitara S is one of the finest-managed compact crossovers that is available. It can catch up to the speed of traffic on motorways. The steering is very accurate, allowing you to tuck easily into curves. The inside is comfortable and comes with DAB radio, DAB radio and a standard Sat-Nav. The exterior design is elegant with black alloy wheels and a distinctive five-slotted grille.

Suzuki sporting cars

Suzuki is one of the few manufacturers to excel in producing 2-wheel and four-wheeled vehicles. The company’s expertise shows in the 2022 lineup that comprises a selection of sporty versions.

The Vitara Suzuki’s goal of creating a Ranger Evoque-like style to the segment of superminis is a major smash for the brand. The Vitara is a vehicle that offers style, practicality and affordability.

The Boosterjet 1.4 turbo engine has enough power to entertain on a paved roads. It’s capable of going from 0-62 in only 8.1 seconds, but it feels faster. Dual Sensor Brake Support and Radar brake Support are standard suzuki Swift. They are outfitted with millimetre wave radar and a monocular video camera, which can offer collision mitigation brakes, adaptive cruise control with high beam aid, and a weaving alert. You can use these features to keep yourself safe when you are driving around junctions within busy cities.
