Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

Yet to be tested by Euro NCAP, but it's an old design and not expect to achieve the same results as current 4x4s. Standard driver and passenger airbags, plus ABS brakes and side impact protection beams give adequate protection. Engine immobiliser and steering lock are the extent of factory-fitted protection. Any Jimny owner will want to install several more layers of security, though.

Boot space is laughably small, so you'll need to use the back seats for shopping and large items. They also fold and tumble, which gives a decent load area for bulkier items. It's best to think of it as a two-seater; use the seat space for luggage.
