The Suzuki Jimny may be small in size, but it’s a great off-roader, packing plenty of might and muscle. This “baby off-road” machine gets plenty of new features, and while it’s not as powerful as other off-roaders in the market, it really has a lot to offer.
With fuel consumption of 35 mpg (Average), 0 to 62mph in – seconds, a maximum top speed of 90 mph, and a curb weight of 2348 lbs, the Suzuki Jimny 2019 1.5 has a naturally-aspirated In-line 4 cylinder engine, gas engine.
Let’s Talk About Speed Limits
The 90 mph may seem not much for a sports car lover, but with a speed limit between 60 and 85 mph across different states, this doesn’t have to be an issue for regular users. Considering its little weight to shift, the wee Suzuki’s power and torque figures aren’t as cripplingly undernourished as they might first appear. In fact, they are pretty decent.
A Closer Look Into Jimny’s Drivetrain
Powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 100 hp and 96 pound-feet of torque, the engine can either be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic transmission.
Like most off-roaders, the Suzuki Jimny is more than just power and speed.
You can choose between front-wheel-drive in normal operating circumstances or the four-wheel-drive “4H” setting with a high gear and the “4L” setting with the low gear.
Also, every offroad lover will be pleased to know that the Jimny’s approach angle is 37 degrees. In contrast, the departure angle is 49 degrees. Jimny’s ground clearance is at 8.2 inches, and this is a pretty good number considering the roads you’ll explore with it. The last thing you want is to have rocks and whatever obstacles scraping the bumpers and underbody of your Suzuki baby.
