The 2018 Suzuki Jimny will debut at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show in the hardtop version. To preview a potential soft-top version, IAB’s rendering artist Shoeb Kalania has created renderings with a manually removable roof.

The Suzuki Jimny enters its fourth generation this year. The redesigned model will continue the tradition of a retro design and boxy proportions. It will feature a more serious and imposing face while retaining the 5-slot radiator grille. The exterior design changes, already revealed in leaked images, will make the all-new model look brawnier.

A leaked interior image has shown that 2018 Suzuki Jimny will have the latest (Suzuki) design three-spoke steering wheel, a modern touchscreen infotainment and retro-themed instrument panel. The simplistic dashboard layout shows that Suzuki has intended a no-frills, maximum utility approach.

The Suzuki Jimny will continue with a ladder-frame chassis through its fourth generation, which means it will once again offer solid off-road capability. The all-new model will feature the ALLGRIP PRO AWD system, a report said last year. Engine specifications are currently unknown, but one can expect a variety of options ranging from 0.66- to 1.4-litre. Suzuki may decide to refrain from offering its new BOOSTERJET engines to keep the prices attractive.

Another report last year said that Suzuki will make India the global production hub for the fourth-gen Suzuki Jimny. According to this report, Suzuki will make the UV at its Gujarat plant. However, local reports suggest Japanese launch is scheduled in February 2018, and this could mean that the UV’s production will continue at the Iwata plant (Japan).
