Wet or Dry

More and more vehicles of this type are seen on and off the road these days. Parking a vehicle of this scale is effortless, even if you need to climb a curb. On a ladder type frame with 190mm of ground clearance, 37 degrees of approach angle, 31 degrees of ramp break-over angle and 46 degrees of departure angle, this writer believes with the partial specification mentioned, it could truly go off-road, come rain or shine.
The Suzuki Jimny JLX 4x4 4AT can seat comfortably a total of four occupants and when seated on the driver’s seat you have a forward clear view of the road, even the angle of the front windshield was common for an off-road vehicle. Inside the Suzuki Jimny JLX, the instrument cluster provided basic information and on the dashboard the switches, buttons are of arms length from the driver. A 4-speed air-conditioner could provide coolness instantaneously in the cabin and for listening pleasure a 2-DIN AM/FM/CD in-dash wired to speakers came as standard. Also on this Suzuki Jimny JLX 4x4 4AT are power windows and side mirrors, central locking with keyless entry system, fog lamps, roof rail and alloy wheels.
The Suzuki Jimny JLX 4x4 4AT handles well on road, although with the high ground clearance and narrow width taking an abrupt turn was at your own risk but this vehicle can smoothly reach extra-legal speed limits within reasonable time. Mainly because of the power plant under the hood, a M13A 1328cc four in-line 16 valve DOHC MPI petrol engine bolted on to a 4-speed automatic transmission that can push a maximum power of 81hp/5500rpm and maximum torque of 110nm/4500rpm. Stopping this vehicle was achieved with front ventilated disc and rear drum brakes while the ABS did not come as standard. The Suzuki Jimny JLX 4x4 4AT was basically a part time four wheel drive vehicle, to engage to 4wd and back to 2wd a “drive action 4x4 button” was located on the center of the dashboard. Now if in case you get stuck in a muddy road and you require maximum torque a 4wd-low mode was right beside the 4wd button to get the vehicle clear and out of harm. The steering wheel diameter size was adequate for off-road use there was no possibility that you might hit the windows or door panels or shall I say you will be all over the cabin when you require quick steering during on road use. When turning on a U-turn slot the steering wheel diameter size was also proper and with a minimum turning radius of 4.9m you will be in and out the U-turn slot easily (kerb to kerb) with the proper approach. Off-roads, make new roads…the Suzuki Jimny can get you there.
