2020 Suzuki Jimny review! The Suzuki Jimny is an affordable off-roader sold in other markets -- but not the United States. Today I'm reviewing the Suzuki Jimny, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of the wonderfully quirky Jimny. I'm also going drive the 2020 Jimny and show you what it's like on the road.

I like how divorced from reality car reviews are. 20k is nothing! Average American income is 31k. Car prices have shot up so much in the last 10 years and wages have not budged at all.

Looks so cool on the outside of the Jimny but the interior is pure trash.

Been a fan since the Samurai in the Eighties. But it looks like it's still to small for my long legs.☹

I just bought the new Kia Seltos SX AWD while I was looking into the Sub Compact SUV market. It is not slow at all with the T-GDI. It surprises me every day. It has some simple points that are nice that companies are getting away from like the shifter, manual hatch/seats. I think its a hot seller in India also. I am only about an hour from you if you want a day with it.

In my country Guatemala, Suzuki Jinmy is sold since its first generation and it has a very good market, last year I went to the Suzuki dealer to ask about one of these and it is a very nice car, the problem is that for the price there are already other options better for which to go for example a Hilux or some other second-hand Pick Up more like and more capable

And we will never get it in America because their cheap too buy and maintain not the North America formula because if the company can’t bleed you dry it’s not for sale in America. New vehicles are junk plain and simple ! No profit in making something good and cheap too fix so Suzuki left America. Even their old SX4 out beats most 4wd vehicles like an escape of today and I bought my SX4 for 4000CAD no problems no leaks. Jimmy would put wrangle out of business instantly from the price difference. Also I owned a Rubicon for 60k and it rides like crap because it can’t only off road so for a daily Wrangles are completely UNPRACTICAL, gas hogs, and uncomfortable too drive. I’d sell my 2019 WRX with all its tech if I could get a jimmy here without importing. America is going backwards notice in the 50’s-70’s vehicles didn’t bleed you dry and had character now North Americans are broke and stressed out over their new vehicles that are crap with no character ending up getting traded every 3-5 years which is apart of the industries formula. Suzuki wake up and see your missing a huge market in Canada 🇨🇦 we are NOT like the US we don’t want tech we want basic vehicles with a real 4x4 for our rank winters in all provinces and we don’t have those vehicles. I have bought a wrangler sold it’s because it was a waste of 60k brand new WRX junk and takes forever to warm up costing me more money over the years in simply waste....I’d love a plain vehicle that’s new like a Jimny but Vehicles are not designed for the consumer anymore only for profit for this huge multi company power houses nowadays. I miss the days when Ford was all ford, Subaru was all Subaru, Mopar not owned by Europe etc. Time too walk.... cheers 🍻 Doug wish I could review one just too experience the perfect Canadian Suv for single families

Pretty sure I haven't seen that parking brake housing on any Suzuki yet. I think its for optional heated seats/steering in the EU, since our Ignis also has similar switches on the centre console.

15 inch wheel isn't small. Big wheels and low profile tires suck off road. Big wheels are for street vehicles, not off road.

It's higher tech than my 2010 Wrangler. I have window controls on the dash, manual 4x4 shifter, standard key that you put in the ignition etc... No climate control AC, no big radio screen. I do have a V6 engine though. LOL Small Japanese size vehicles don't sell that well in the USA. A lot of us are 6 feet tall and weigh 200 pounds. Plus, that little 4 cyl with 100hp might not do well on Texas highways where people are going 80mph.

my first car was a 1988 Suzuki samurai and i was beyond excited when i saw this and then my dreams were shattered when I realized we wouldn't get them in the states. My girl friend likes small cars with a lot of character and was also obsessed with this car but ended up getting a trail hawk renegade which we also really enjoy.

Last 5 years with Vitara and now with this one, Suzuki made absolutely great cars. Vitara All grip is in the same class like Capture, T Roc, Juke etc. and it literally blows them out of water. You can actually go off road with it, and the 1.4 turbo is way faster and way better handling than all other cara in the class. But the materials are cheaper lol. Who fucking cares

It's a bro's Mirage, Doug. Timestamp for when you call it the worst new offroader you can buy? Exposed manual seat rails, body paint visible inside, overspray on the underside, hard plastic parts bin trim, blanked out switches, underpowered with excessive NVH, differently shaped center and LH/RH climate vents, no engine beauty cover, small (meh- you think) wheels, *thin* doors, basic key and ignition, no lights on the visor mirrors, parts numbers visible molded into the cargo floor box lid... Hell, even the floor carpet looks like it's from the same supplier. Straight down the list, all the things you bitched about in that one. Other than faux lifestyle affectation, what's the difference? (Other than the Suzuki costing more, of course.)

Most interior options matched or exceeded my 2018 Wrangler Golden Eagle so not sure I agree that you can't get a basic Wrangler. While a cool design, not sure I would give up the added power and capabilities of my Wrangler

Those blank switches next to the parking break are for the seat heaters, according to the owner's manual. Probably this reviewed model doesn't have seat heater feature.

One of the few cars released these days with a soul, nice and simple, a great callback to the cars of the 80's and 90's. If brands like BMW took a page out of this book and made a 80's, 90's callback to the 3 series without all the electronic crap at an affordable price and focused on drivers it'd be a smash hit. We can only hope though 😢
