Last 5 years with Vitara and now with this one, Suzuki made absolutely great cars. Vitara All grip is in the same class like Capture, T Roc, Juke etc. and it literally blows them out of water. You can actually go off road with it, and the 1.4 turbo is way faster and way better handling than all other cara in the class. But the materials are cheaper lol. Who fucking cares

It's a bro's Mirage, Doug. Timestamp for when you call it the worst new offroader you can buy? Exposed manual seat rails, body paint visible inside, overspray on the underside, hard plastic parts bin trim, blanked out switches, underpowered with excessive NVH, differently shaped center and LH/RH climate vents, no engine beauty cover, small (meh- you think) wheels, *thin* doors, basic key and ignition, no lights on the visor mirrors, parts numbers visible molded into the cargo floor box lid... Hell, even the floor carpet looks like it's from the same supplier. Straight down the list, all the things you bitched about in that one. Other than faux lifestyle affectation, what's the difference? (Other than the Suzuki costing more, of course.)

One of the few cars released these days with a soul, nice and simple, a great callback to the cars of the 80's and 90's. If brands like BMW took a page out of this book and made a 80's, 90's callback to the 3 series without all the electronic crap at an affordable price and focused on drivers it'd be a smash hit. We can only hope though 😢

The only thing you got wrong was saying that previous Jimny's weren't special. The previous generation literally had a 20 year production run and sold 300 million around the world. And the core design of this car is very very nearly _the same_ as that. Full disclosure, I live in Japan and just bought a 2009 Jimny :)

The door handles are of that old school design which are really crappy especially for a off road car (a hair dresser's off road car :)) no navigation is also a bit silly in 2021 even in a budget car. It's also a bit telling that the engine doesn't meet emission standards for passenger cares in Europe. Suzuki dropped the ball on this one. Kind of sad since the exterior looks decent

Good fun Doug, but NO mention of reliability of the Suzuki brand. In Europe a lot of people love the brand because it is synonymous with reliability. And stripping this car of gimmicks and keeping simple mechanical locks hand brakes and such things is partly about reliability, and what makes the car so attractive. It's not just a money thing, and you missed out on that.

One of the problems with Suzuki in the US is they way under power the vehicles, assuming US consumers will just be ok with them. The Samurai was horribly under powered. It was a simplistic vehicle that would have done far better with a bit more power to enable it to do highway speeds uphill with the ability to maintain speed without downshifting even on the slightest of slopes. It was a fun thing to drive, but the exhaust was tiny because it pumped little more air than a tire pump. Suzuki should have learned from that early experience and given another 20-30 hp to US vehicles and they probably would have found many more consumers who grew fond of their offerings. Americans love low prices, but not at the expense of getting the job done safely. The Beetle suffered the same death as the 70s left its underpowered and lack of better safety features behind.

Maybe it’s because I’m the typical overweight American but this vehicle gives me claustrophobia. The back seats are bad enough but the drivers seats looks like something I would never want to take off-roading. Very informal video but it feels like you’re trying to sell me a lime green box turd.

If wondering why it's not sold in the US: Previously in the US you could buy a Jimny. Although it took on the name of the Suzuki Samurai. In the mid-'80s the Samurai's began making a name for themselves, and people loved it. With body-on-frame construction, solid axles all around, and a 2-speed all-wheel-drive transfer case, it had all the ideal things needed for a great time off-roading. However, after a report review in 1988, it was mentioned that there was massive rollover risk for the Samurai. After this, sales dropped significantly. The impact this had on Suzuki North America was soo great that they would never come back from it. Suzuki was even fighting a lawsuit that was only settled and dropped in 2010. Three years after this, Suzuki decided to cut their losses and leave the North American market completely. Also they predict the cost of bringing the Jimny to the US is at around a staggering $275 million. This takes into account the costs of marketing, building dealerships, employing staff, and customer service. This would mean that the 2021 Suzuki Jimny would carry a significantly higher price tag in order for it to cover the cost of the import tax on bringing vehicles to the United States and also the cost of staff, dealerships, etc. Suzuki may not do well against home-bred competitors such as the Jeep Wrangler.
