If some off-road crossover is unique, that is Jimny. The SUV doesn’t have a true competitor. Its combination of size, capability, and equipment is still unmatched by rival companies. With new 2019 Suzuki Jimny, the gap will be even bigger. Besides wagon, we will see the convertible model as well. A 2-door cabrio is one of the starts of current, fourth generation of crossover. Well, if Jimny diesel appears, the page could turn in a no time.
Other changes on the upcoming 2019 Suzuki Jimny are big. So huge that will start a new generation. Initially, the SUV should be a model for 2018 season, but it seems like there will be a delay. Nevertheless, the company could make a short stint with the 2018 year model, and then present serious upgrades for 2019 Jimny. If that happens, the crossover doesn’t need many upgrades and tuning. Whatsoever, small fixes will solve all lags registered by the owners of the new SUV.
Whatsoever, Jimny is going to get some extra accessories. Interior and exterior won’t suffer radical modifications, but Suzuki is always trying to deliver modern vehicles. The major indicator of this is the infotainment system. Last year, few Suzuki vehicles received the suite developed by the company. The same package will probably be available for 2019 Suzuki Jimny.
2019 Suzuki Jimny Specs
The favorite to take a position under the hood of the 2019 Suzuki Jimny is a BoosterJet engine, also used by Swift. However, the crossover will add a turbocharger to the 1.0-liter powertrain to gain better performance. This combination is available only for customers in Japan, while the rest of the world could get higher displacement.
One of the alternatives is 1.2-liter DualJet 4-cylinder, while the other is an even bigger 1.4-l unit. Both of these will be more potent than the base engine. Whatsoever, the 2019 Suzuki Jimny in Australian market could get a specific type of drivetrain.
Suzuki Jimny Diesel
The last, but not the least option is 2019 Suzuki Jimny diesel. As the alternative to petrol units, this kind of a crossover could be more interesting to European buyers. The most likely unit for the SUV is a 1.3-l DDiS90. However, Jimny hasn’t used diesel engines since 2004, and this would be quite a surprise for all the fans.
Transmission and Mileage
Buyers of the 2019 Suzuki Jimny will have a choice between automatic and manual gearbox. Both of them are 5-speed transmissions. Suzuki is using the AMT technology to reduce fuel consumption on the automatic boxes. Owners of these drivetrain systems will have better fuel economy than these buyers opted for the manual box.
But, exact numbers are unknown yet. It is certain that Jimny will be fuel-friendly, although it is the main purpose is riding on tough terrains. We are used to big crossovers consuming too much fuel in such conditions, but Jimny is not one of these. First of all, it is compact. Furthermore, its tuning allows the driver to select the best possible mode for various terrains.
2019 Suzuki Jimny Conversion
The 2019 Suzuki Jimny might not get the diesel unit. Its predecessors haven’t got any in 15 years. However, buyers found the way to make their crossovers with a diesel engine. Custom modifications are allowing 2019 Suzuki Jimny conversion from petrol vehicle. In that case, the buyer is losing the warranty, so older vehicles are used more for this tuning.

So far, we know that 2019 Suzuki Jimny SUV will come with a wagon and convertible body styles. However, the crossover was one of the most favorite models for upgrades and customization. Being a light off-road vehicle can make the ride in tough terrain dangerous. So, many previous owners of Jimny decided to install a roll cage. However, this is not the only accessory that will be available.
Interior and Suzuki Infotainment Suite
Part of the new 2019 Suzuki Jimny SUV will be the brand-new infotainment system. It tacks up the interior with a touchscreen display. Well, we hope that the crossover will get integrated one instead of the other solution seen on the last Vitara. Glossy black color boosts the elegance, while the brightness is making everything visible even on sunny days.
Drivers will make only a few commands from the display. Four sections allow audio and navigation controls, as well as phone connectivity and Apple CarPlay service. Being new in this area is causing a lot of mistakes. However, on the 2019 Suzuki Jimny, we expect many of them fixed and infotainment suite simpler to use.
2019 Suzuki Jimny Debuts in Australia, Not coming to the US
The 2019 Suzuki Jimny will probably have a premiere in Australia. Bosses are still weighing options. Although its homeland Japan is always the favorite, it seems like that Aussie fans of Jimny SUV are louder and want the debut more. Whatsoever, this crossover is not going to be available worldwide. Customers in the US won’t be able to purchase this vehicle. Surprisingly, the 2019 Jimny is coming to Iceland, where demand for this vehicle is increased. This was the wise move by the company.
