A new XL five-door variant now joins the three-door in the range, priced from $34,990 before on-road costs
The three-door Jimny is now joined by the Jimny XL, a five-door variant, which will start from $34,990 before on-road costs.
The three-door Jimny, meanwhile, is priced lower at $30,490 before on-road costs for the entry level Lite, and $31,990 for the Jimny three-door manual.
Both Jimny body styles continue to be powered by a naturally-aspirated 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 75kW of power and 130Nm of torque.
The biggest change is that the Jimny has grown for 2024, with the XL version now having five-doors rather than three.
Suzuki has stretched the platform of the Jimny, adding a piece of x-member steel chassis underneath to add the additional two doors to the body style.
The Japanese brand has also said that it has revised the automatic transmission, added ventilated front disc brakes, has lengthened the propeller driveshaft (for XL) and lastly, has tweaked the front suspension setup for 2024.
In terms of safety, Suzuki has replaced the three-door’s safety cameras with a new ‘stereo camera’ for 2024. The brand has also installed dual-camera brake support, lane departure warning, weaving alert and adaptive cruise control (on automatic only).
New two-tone paint colours are also available on the Jimny for the 2024 model year.
