New Suzuki Jimny holds onto its value

January 4, 2019

The eagerly awaited new Jimny Compact SUV is now on sale and Suzuki is pleased to report that the model has just received a very strong residual value forecast from leading industry specialists CAP Automotive.

Based on CAP’s long established three years and 60,000 miles formula in their January 2019 Gold Book, Jimny SZ5 retains 52 per cent of its value offering good peace of mind to customers from its very slow depreciation. If a lower mileage of 36,000 over three years is taken into account and perhaps more in line with historical Jimny ownership usage, the figure is a record breaker for Suzuki at 61 per cent. This figure places the new Jimny up in the Supercar league of cars for retained value.

The new Jimny offers a much higher level of equipment than the previous model and SZ4 features selectable 4WD with low ratio transfer, Dual Sensor Brake Support (DSBS), air conditioning, CD tuner, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and front foglamps. Moving up to SZ5 adds 15-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, climate control, navigation with Smartphone link, rear privacy glass, heated front seats and body coloured door handles.

Ever since the first Jimny made its debut in April 1970, it has been a masterpiece of Suzuki’s 4WD technology. It is the one and only authentic off-roader that is small and lightweight, but still retains its core off-road performance desired by professionals. Two decades have passed since the third-generation model made its debut in 1998 and Jimny has now evolved to its fourth generation in almost 50 years of history.
