If you have seen the Jimny 3-door before, then the new 5-door will look familiar to you as it stays largely similar to its sibling. The SUV retains the design highlights with the boxy profile, ruler-straight lines, circular LED-projector headlights, chunky wheel arches and upright pillars. You will notice the new rear-doors and increased length right away, as well as the new vertical rear quarter glass that’s sandwiched between the thick C and D-pillars. There are some subtle changes as well like the new chrome inserts on the slatted front grille instead of the all-black grille on the 3-door model.

Jimny Interior

Inside, the interior of the Jimny 5-door gets an all-black colour theme with brushed silver accents and a dashboard-fitted grab handle on the front passenger side. Overall, the layout is rugged and utilitarian, with a row of knobs and toggle switches below the infotainment screen for the climate control and other features, reminding you it is a hardcore 4x4 first.

Other equipment include a MID display for the driver, auto climate control, an audio setup from ARKAMYS, push button start/stop, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and more.
