We saw the Suzuki Jimny 2019 at the GIIAS 2018 and now, it’s being shown off to European market at the on-going 2018 Paris Motor Show. Before getting to know any further details, let's just admire the rugged and sturdy Suzuki Jimny 2019 at this big car event in France:

Driven by a 1.5L inline-4 engine pushing out 100 hp and 95 lb-ft of peak torque, the 2019 Jimny still features a simple and rugged look with a slab-sided boxy body, rounded headlights, a spare mounted out back on the side-hinged rear door and exposed drip rails to boot.

Interior-wise, that retro look is spread with an upright dashboard, basic bucket seats as well as straightforward manual gearshift. The infotainment screen is the only hint of modernity inside. Look at the photos below for better imagination of the car:

In terms of dimensions, the new Jimny remains steadfast in the original formula. A body-on-frame construction with rigid axles suspended by coil springs lends a helping hand to its off-road credentials. Additionally, the 4WD comes with 2-speed transfer case with a low range while large approach, short overhangs, departure angles, hill hold, and hill descent control allow it to challenge rough terrains.
