Driving with peace of mind.
At Suzuki, safety is first priority. Suzuki's comprehensive approach
to driver and passenger protection includes active measures that help you avoid accidents. Excellent handling, braking and
acceleration empower you to respond quickly in emergency situations.
An LSPV (Load Sensing Proportioning Valve) helps prevent premature locking
of the rear wheels at a sudden halt and heightens stopping power when the vehicle is fully loaded.
The Jimny's body and full-frame structure were designed through computer
analysis to absorb the force of frontal impact and direct it away from the passengers. Side door beams are also incorporated
to help preserve cabin integrity.
The frame floats on a high performance, 3-link coil suspension that tackles
highway curves and bumps with confidence. Separate shock absorbers and coil springs increase suspension, so the ride is taut
All this power and precision is transferred to the smooth-shifting 4-speed
automatic or 5-speed manual transmission by way of a specially designed chain that not only significantly lowers friction
and noise, but also reduces power loss. A transmission lock-up function raises fuel economy when driving at highway speeds.
As a Drive Action
4x4 with Air Locking Hub, the Jimny easily shifts between 4WD (4H) and 2WD modes while driving, so you can ably respond to
changing weather and surfaces at a moment's notice. All it takes is a push of a button. There are high and low setting on
4WD - the 4H (high) position for fairly flat surfaces, and the 4L (low) setting, ideal for attacking off-road slopes.
