The new 2019 Suzuki Jimny is spotted on the street. But, it is not ready for sale. The test mule is wearing a camouflage to hide most of the novelties we will see. However, according to images, its dimensions and the shape are the same as before. We don’t doubt that covers are keeping all important stuff away from fans’ eyes.
We expect a redesign from the 2019 Jimny. This crossover has an aging design, and refresh is needed. The new platform was presented at Tokyo motor show, and it is likely that this SUV is going to use it. Also, if that happens, the Jimny will start a new era of its life, with the fourth generation of vehicle.
2019 Suzuki Jimny New Generation and Platform
We must go back to the last car show in Tokyo. Suzuki was one of the surprises with its vehicles. Among others, they presented a new platform. The e-Survivor concept seems to be perfect for the 2019 Suzuki Jimny. Also, from what we see on the roads, it seems that test mule has similar body lines. Although the new generation was planned for 2018, we are facing a delay for next year.
After almost fifty years, Jimny is coming with the same boxy look. Although classic, it adds modern details and touches. Round headlights are new, while grille keeps its traditional shape with vertical bars. More changes will come inside the crossover. However, the exterior will get some specific parts through extra packages. Finally, for the new generation, designers are preparing a new palette of colors for 2019 Jimny.

Full-size airbags for driver and front passenger, ESC, side impact protection, and a reliable braking system are other cool features for this version.

Both manual and automatic transmissions will be in an offer for buyers. On the other side, we don’t know if a new generation of Suzuki Jimny is going to be available in AWD variant. Well, it would be surprised if the company decides to come out only with 2WD off-road crossover.
Suzuki Jimny Diesel
The 2019 Suzuki Jimny is going to start the new generation in style. Besides the petrol unit, the Japanese company could return a diesel powertrain for the first time in 15 years.
