The popular small off-roader is set to gain a five-door variant this year in Australia to join the iconic three-door
According to numerous reports, including overseas channels such as Autocar, the new five-door variant of the Suzuki will be launched in markets including Africa, India, Latin America and, most importantly, Australia.
The five-door variant will run on the same ladder frame chassis as before, however the model has grown in length to accommodate the extra two doors.
It’s expected that the five-door Jimny will arrive in Suzuki showrooms here in Australia around the fourth quarter of this year. Local pricing is yet to be announced.
The Suzuki Jimny in new five-door guise is now considerably longer than the three-door version, measuring in at 3985mm long, 1645mm wide and 1720mm tall. The five-door version also sits on a 340mm longer wheelbase.
In comparison, a three-door Jimny measures in at 3480mm long, but is identical in width and height.
In terms of powertrain, the 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine found in the three-door Jimny will remain, with no power or torque bumps announced.
Just like the three-door, a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission will be available for the five-door at launch.
All prices listed are before on-road costs.
