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.

    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 😂

    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... ;)

    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

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

  9. Ha, ha, I'm entertained with the comments...halata yung marunong mag appreciate ng Jimny! Finally! I've decided to get one with the specs right for complaints, bossings!

  10. The 5th gear is very short, almost useless. A 0.9 ratio would be perfect.

  11. ive always wanted a jimny. now at 1.5 liter, sold sa kin to!

  12. a 2-door jimny is perfect. just imagine if you have to make it a 4-door, the design is not acceptable or else you will make it a mid-size SUV already. Suzuki is a world renowned car manufacturer because their engineers are good designers.
    Comments are welcomed whether good or bad but if your comments are all dislikes then you have to proved it or it will just show that you dont know about numbers. . .

    1. Bet you're good at numbers but you sure suck in grammar. Imagine putting "ed" where you're not supposed to and not using "ed" where you're supposed. If you dislike my comment then you have to "prove" (not proved) me wrong or it will just show that you don't know about grammar. . .

      Your comments are also "welcome" (not welcomed)

  13. at David. . .yes, i've also noticed it. but in my own opinion suzuki did it because the vehicle is design for off-roading thats why they are after of the torque not the speed. gear ratio below 1 is classified as overdrive and design only for vehicles where speed is highly considered.

    1. And here you're supposed to use "ed" on design - "vehicle is designed for" and "designed only for.."

    2. yes, your grammar is good mine is wrong

  16. Looking forward on seeing this car in the showrooms soon! I do wish they have an armrest for those times you’re stuck on traffic. Obviously space is an issue, so maybe they can make a folding driver’s armrest as an optional accessory.����
    Although its a far cry, Id love to see a 5 door version too in the future! That would definitely increase it’s popularity and practicality. ��

  17. This is going to be a winner , the previous version although good missed the point with fuel consumption and power, fine for smaller countries where you do not travel that far , but in SA we go distances with a load ... this will touch a sweet spot ... never thought I would buy one... but her goes.

  18. Waiting for this for 2019 do we have exact month for 2019 when it released in the philippines thank you.

  19. Can I purchase you brake limited slip differential as a part
