Prices start at around £15,500 for the entry-level 'SZ4' manual variant; the alternative is an £18,000 'SZ5' version of the same model. Go for that 'SZ5' and you'll be offered automatic transmission for an extra £1,000. 'SZ5' niceties include climate control, rear privacy glass and heated front seats. You also get Suzuki's 7.0in touchscreen at this level, complete with 'Apple CarPlay' smartphone-mirroring. The old car didn't have this of course, being as it was originally released nine years before the iPhone was invented... In true Suzuki style, you can also jazz up your Jimny by choosing from a huge accessory range. Bear in mind, however, that these things are likely to do little for residual values when the time comes to sell.
'SZ5' customers also get the brand's Dual Sensor Brake Support (DSBS) autonomous braking set-up. If this system determines that there is a risk of collision with a forward vehicle or pedestrian, it issues an audio and visual warning, increases braking force, or applies strong automatic brakes depending on the situation, in an effort to avoid the collision or reduce damage. Other functions include lane departure warning and a weaving alert function to help the driver keep alert, plus there's high beam assist.
