In a 2017 comparison test that included the Nissan and Jeep, the Suzuki Jimny 2018 Model placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another Suzuki Jimny 2018 Model weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.
The Suzuki Jimny 2018 Model, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the Suzuki Jimny 2018 Model doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
The car is the only Suzuki Jimny 2018 Model trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.”
