Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 34 - 39 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Suzuki Jimny running costs are about average considering you can only have a petrol engine. The Jimny is cheap at around £10K with a manual gearbox and running costs are on a par with the rest of Suzuki’s small 4x4s. Low insurance costs and reasonable 38mpg economy enhance its appeal but depreciation is the biggest cost – expect to lose at least 55 per cent of the car’s value over three years, if you pay the full asking price.

The Suzuki Jimny emissions are not particularly environmentally friendly. With an average of 184g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are quite high for a small 4×4. Economy is a reasonable 38mpg on manual versions with the newer VVT engine.

There’s little to worry about regarding Suzuki Jimny reliability. The firm has been making 4x4s for a long while and the build quality has led to very few breakdowns, or claims on their warranty. The Jimny is no different.
