Suzuki has two big model debuts coming this year – the 2018 Suzuki Jimny and 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport. Both future models were spotted together outside what looks like a parking facility in Japan.

The 2018 Suzuki Jimny will reportedly debut at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show next month.

With the MY2018 update, the Suzuki Jimny will enter its fourth generation. Suzuki has redesigned the Jimny in such a way that it is still very relatable to the nearly 20-year-old third-gen model. The small UV will continue having a ladder-frame chassis post the lifecycle makeover. Specifications are currently unknown, but as the current model, Suzuki could offer it with three- and four-cylinder engines up to 1.25L in displacement. Leaked images have revealed that the all-new Jimny will feature a touchscreen infotainment system and a new three-spoke steering wheel similar to that of the all-new Swift.

The 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport is the third generation of the budget hot hatch. Sporty aero kit, distinctive radiator grille, unique alloy 17-inch alloy wheels, dual exhausts, special bucket seats with red stitching and “Sport” branding, leather-wrapped steering wheel with red stitching, stainless steel pedals and red highlights on the door panels, dashboard and centre console and inside the instrument panel are some of the key features of the all-new Swift Sport.

The 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport’s engine is a retuned version of the Suzuki Vitara’s K14C 1.4L BOOSTERJET unit. The turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine puts out 140 PS at 5,500 rpm and 230 Nm of torque from 2,500-3,500 rpm. 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic are the transmission choices. Front-wheel drive drivetrain layout is standard. The fuel economy in the JC08 test cycle is rated at 16.4 km/l (MT)/16.2 km/l (AT).

The 2018 Suzuki Swift Sport will go on sale in Japan on 20 September 2017. The 2018 Suzuki Jimny will follow around February 2018.
