The new Suzuki Jimny 5-Door is officially in the Philippines

The iconic Suzuki Jimny, renowned for its compact 4x4 charm, has been given a growth spurt with the introduction of the highly anticipated five-door variant in the local market. While the three-door model found success among off-road enthusiasts and customization aficionados, the 5-door version aims to address concerns about practicality and space. Let's delve into the key aspects shaping the buzz around the new Jimny.

The Jimny's 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, with 101 hp and 130 Nm of torque, has proven its mettle in conquering diverse terrains. The All-Grip technology and 4x4 system enhance its climbing prowess, making it a capable off-roader. However, the boxy design takes a toll on fuel efficiency, clocking around 7.6km/L in the city and 16km/L on the highway. The five-door variant's weight increase undoubtedly raises questions about potential fuel economy compromises.

The three-door Jimny's compact nature facilitated easy maneuverability but posed challenges in terms of stability and rear passenger access. The longer wheelbase of the five-door promises improved stability and enhanced rear passenger accommodations. This expansion might be a game-changer, offering additional cargo space and a more comfortable ride for passengers.

It’s clear that the five-door Jimny aims to appeal to a broader audience seeking practicality without sacrificing the model's iconic charm. However, concerns linger about potential drawbacks, including decreased acceleration and fuel economy, given the retention of the 1.5-liter engine. Suzuki's ability to address these concerns, perhaps through a hybrid solution or engine upgrade, remains a point of interest, though one we have yet to see in the metal just yet.

When it comes to pricing and availability, the new Suzuki Jimny 5-Door is markedly more expensive than its three-door counterpart. It carries a sticker price starting at P1,558,000 for the base model, extending all the way up to P1,708,000 for the range-topper. With the launch of the new 5-Door, it goes without saying that the Jimny is now more practical than ever before.
