Suzuki Jimny 5-door version revealed: President Trung Nguyen’s favorite SUV

A more spacious version of the Suzuki Jimny has just been tested in Europe and is expected to be launched soon with a mild hybrid powertrain.

Car model Suzuki Jimny was introduced back in 2018, but despite rumors and reports that have surfaced over time, the automaker is yet to reveal the long-awaited five-door variant of the off-roader.


However, recently car “hunting” photographers discovered a camouflaged prototype of the five-door Suzuki Jimny being tested in Europe. This image implicitly confirms the rumors and proves that the Japanese automaker is preparing to launch a new variant for its compact off-road vehicle line.

Strict emissions regulations in Europe have forced Suzuki to exclusively offer the three-door Jimny as a two-seat LCV from 2021. This will change soon as the automaker is said to soon electrify gasification of the off-road vehicle, like other models.

The five-door Jimny will most likely benefit from the addition of mild-hybrid technology, although Suzuki also has a full hybrid system in its lineup. Other sources suggest that the naturally aspirated 1.5-liter engine will be replaced by a mild-hybrid turbocharged engine, which should improve performance despite the extra weight.
