Suzuki no longer sells the car in the US, but in other markets the automaker’s Jimny compact SUV has had plenty of success as a capable off-roader that doesn’t break the bank and doesn’t come with oversized proportions. This week Suzuki unveiled a larger, more practical five-door version of the Jimny at the Auto Expo in New Delhi, India. Creating a boxy, utilitarian five-door off-roader would limit your styling options, but the new five-door Jimny looks like a Jeep-his Wrangler knockoff. .

Since the debut of the fourth-generation Jimny in 2018, car enthusiasts around the world have commented that the Jeep Wrangler seems to have had a Mercedes G-Class baby. Granted, these cars don’t just own box aesthetics, but the similarities are there, right down to his iconic 7-slot Jeep grille, which is reflected in his 5-slot grille on the Jimny. Stand out. And the round headlights with slotted grille are reminiscent of the old Hummer H3. Looks aren’t the only reason the Jimny is compared to its big-boy counterpart. Factory base with 31.5″ tall tires His Wrangler has 9.7″ ground clearance, but the Jimny comes with a factory smaller 15″. His wheels have 10.63″ ground clearance and both are attached to the frame of the ladder base. They are very good at playing dirt. From there, the Jimny is quickly overtaken by its big doppelgänger.The length of the new five-door Jimny is 118.43 inches for him compared to his 192.2 inches for the Wrangler, and the Jimny’s narrow 64.76 inches for width. Wrangler is his 74.57 inches. 72.36 inches above it. Size isn’t the only thing that makes the Wrangler stand out off-road. The new 5-door Jimny has a very good 36-degree approach angle, but that angle doesn’t quite match his 43.9-degree approach angle on the 4-door Wrangler. But it’s a different story when it comes to the rear as the big boy Wrangler comes out with his 37 degree departure his angle and the 5 door Jimny dominates it with his 50 degree departure his angle . .

The biggest knock Americans usually have with cars sold overseas not reaching the states is the slight engine size compared to the freedom-loving V-8, and the Jimny is no exception. has only one engine. Its a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder that’s snooze-worthy as he produces 103 horsepower and 106 lb-ft of torque. By comparison, the Wrangler has a myriad of different engines, from a turbo four-cylinder engine producing 270 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque to the Monster Wrangler 392 with his 470-horsepower Hemi V-8 Options are available. and 470 lb-ft of torque. While it’s clear that the Wrangler and Jimny are similar in design and intended use, they may differ slightly in how they fulfill the driver’s desires. However, the Jimny will only be sold in Africa, Australia, India and Latin America, so the dream of a small, capable off-roader coming to America must stay put.
