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.

The Jimny is cheap at just under £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 34mpg economy enhance appeal. 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.

Jimny is not particularly environmentally friendly. With an average of 180 g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are quite low for a small 4×4. It’s worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is not particularly economical, averaging 36 mpg.

Suzuki have been making 4x4s for a long while and the build quality has led to very few breakdowns, or claims on their warranty. Jimny is no different.
