Suzuki Jimny 'Best 4x4' for 2019
Added: 05 March 2019
The all-new Suzuki Jimny has been named ‘Best 4x4’ at the 2019 UK Car of the Year awards.
The Jimny, with its robust ladder frame, will now be part of the shortlist for prestigious UK Car of the Year, thanks to topping its ‘Best 4x4’ category.
The Jimny SUV, redesigned and relaunched for 2019, received high praise from all 29 expert industry journalists that made up the judging panel.
Motoring journalist Guy Bird said of the award-wining 4x4: “It’s impossible not to smile when considering the new Suzuki Jimny. Offering shrunken, but proper, 4x4 skills wrapped in a fun and perfectly judged shape, it nods to Suzuki’s heritage but also interprets it in a truly fresh way.”
TV presenter Jonny Smith added: “Once in a while a car appears that people are drawn to irrespective of price or brand. The honesty, purity of design and robustness of the Jimny makes it deserving on an award.”
“If we are talking about building a 4x4 that’s fit for purpose, Suzuki has aced it. The latest Jimny not only looks fantastic but it’s also a genuinely great off-roader, not to mention extremely affordable to buy and run,” concluded Chris Knapman of Car Guru.
The award-winning Jimny 4x4 starts from just £15,499 at Chapelhouse Suzuki. Such features as Dual Brake Sensor Support, Lane Departure Warning and Weaving Alert, air conditioning, Auto Headlights with High Beam Assist, front foglamps, Bluetooth and DAB all come at no extra cost.
