Suzuki Jimny: Engine Specifications and Performance
The first models of the Suzuki Jimny were kitted out to prioritize off-road performance and speed. At the heart of the 2015 Suzuki Jimny is a 1.3L DOHC 16V 4-cylinder engine that produces 80bhp@5500rpm and an impressive 110Nm@4500rpm. The transmission options available for the Jimny are a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. The other components of the Suzuki Jimny include: a recirculating ball steering system with hydraulic assist, ventilated discs for front brakes, leading and trailing drum for rear brakes, a three-link rigid axle suspension system with coil spring, and 205/70R15 tires.
Different Suzuki Jimny reviews made by local and foreign media noted that the Jimny is a difficult child to operate on the road. However, it shines spectacularly once the paved roads end and the rugged ones begin. The suspension, torque and handling of the Jimny help it perform well in off-road roads, making it a perfect car for drivers who frequently traverse rough roads.
