Here Are the 2019 Suzuki Jimny's Specifications

Man, someone better keep a tighter lid of things over at Suzuki. After countless spy shots, the Japanese carmaker had to release official photos a full 2 weeks before its July 5 global debut. And now, on the eve of the launch, the specs of the 2019 Jimny have come out. All of the specs below have been confirmed as the global Jimny model.

Although Suzuki’s new micro SUV is being sold in its home market as the Jimny and the Sierra, the Sierra looks to be the more likely candidate for export markets given that the narrow body Jimny has been specifically designed to fit into Japan’s kei car standards. As such, we’ll be concentrating on the Jimny Sierra at this point (UPDATE: Suzuki has confirmed that the Jimny Sierra will be the global overseas market model):

Moving forward, here’s what we gather so far (this page will be updated as we get a hold of more spec details):

For the curious, pricing for the Jimny Sierra in Japan starts at 1,760,400 yen (~P 852,000) for the bare bones JL M/T model up to 2,019,600 yen (~P 977,000) for the top-of-the-line JC A/T model.

Although Suzuki Philippines remains mum on when the Jimny will make its local market debut, it’s understood that dealers have actually run out stocks already. And given that the Jimny’s sourced from Japan (made at their Kosai Plant for the first time), Suzuki Philippines may get their hands on this cutesy off-roader sooner rather than later.

As previously mentioned, our panel interview with Suzuki Philippines personnel revealed that the Dzire and Swift are just two of the various products they’re launching this year. In fact, with such a strong curiosity for the Jimny and all-new Ertiga, this could all point to a launch date or at least preview before the end of the year.


  1. Nice.. Very promising. Yung pricing nalang.

  2. Replies
    1. It's meant for off roading. And when you're doing that, you're not really doing it to save fuel.

      4AT should be good enough.

    2. Agreed. Would sooner trust a 4AT over a CVT during hard off roading ๐Ÿ˜‚

    3. Off-roading (4x4) is best experienced in a manual tranny IMO. So if 4AT bothers you, get a MT, otherwise, forget this baby and look somewhere else... ;)

  3. 5 door version

    1. Most off-roaders strip the thing to the bare minimum. With that engine, what do you need a five door for? Are you planning on off-roading with your family? Get a 4x4 SUV.

    2. Like what most of us do , buy a 4x4 for the city. It looks cool to own one. No need to be 4x4. What I'm saying is Suzuki could make a 5 door 4x2 version. No 7 seater pls.

  4. i just got a vitara but i want this one too...

  5. Go f yourselves, Suzuki. The Swift we got here was disappointing.

    F you Suzuki!

  6. Bitter spotted...have you bougth a suzuki car with lemon flavor ��

  7. For personal use only. Not as practical as the others. Lack of luggage space behind plus only 2 doors. Nope for this one. Based on the pricing, better get either Rush or Xpander

    1. Get the father of that 2 ... the ERTIGA

  8. Im on the prowl for the all new jimny! Love at first sight!!outta my way! Im first in line.
