We had a bit of a peek at the new Jimny a few weeks ago, but now Suzuki has delivered more detail ahead of the new Jimny arriving in the United Kingdom in 2019.

As diminutive as it is (3480mm overall on a 2250mm wheelbase, 1645mm wide and 1725 high) the new Jimny still has a separate ladder frame and old-school rigid axles - albeit with coil springs all round - and it is still one of the most ruggedly built beetle-crushers on the planet.

The main engine option will be a 1.5-litre petrol for most markets; 660cc petrol to be Japan-only.

More details about the forthcoming new Suzuki Jimny have been revealed, detailing European specifications for its new cute and small, but tough no-nonsense off-roader. Suzuki will be exporting only the latter to the export markets and it's the same motor that is also set to power the Indonesia-spec new-gen Suzuki Ertiga. Transmission choices for the Jimny and Jimny Sierra are the same: 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic. Depending on the gearbox fitted, the Jimny will have a top speed of 90mph with the manual and 87mph with the automatic.

They will now face either Croatia or hosts Russian Federation in their first semi-final for 28 years on Wednesday. He added: "I have been really impressed with how they handle themselves and I really hope they go all the way".

The ladder chassis can tackle the harshest terrain imaginable thanks to Allgrip Pro part-time 4WD with low-range transfer gear and three driving modes: 2H, 4H, and 4L.

Suzuki claims the Jimny can drive up inclines with a 37deg approach angle and a 49deg departure angle.

The new Jimny won't arrive in the United Kingdom until early in 2019.

In terms of dimension, the Suzuki Jimny measures 3,395 mm in length, 1,475 mm in width, and 1,725 in height, while offering a ground clearance of 205 mm. The vehicle features 15-inch wheels with gunmetal finish.

With the rear seats in place the new Jimny boasts 85 litres of bootspace, though this expands to 377 litres with the rear bench folded flat - 53 litres larger than before, and totally flat too.

Alongside off-road assistance features such as hill hold and descent control, the new Jimny also gets automatic emergency braking, six airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning and high beam assist.
