The Auto Trader expert verdict:
The Jimny looks absolutely brilliant and commands plenty of attention everywhere it goes, plus it’s a genuinely capable off-roading tool. And it that’s all you’re looking for, you’ll absolutely love it. However, most people considering cars like this are looking for an SUV rather than an off-roader – in other words, they just want the rugged look rather than the mud-plugging ability - and for those people, the Jimny doesn’t make so much sense. Those buyers will be better off with a more conventional small SUV, most of which are more comfortable, more practical, more civilised and better on quality and safety. Flawed, but still very charming.
Reasons to buy:
- Looks the absolute business
- Should be very reliable
- Great off-road
