Against

Exterior

Jimny's width is its double-edged sword!

The design is boxy and draws elements from all its previous generations; the round halogen headlamps with a quirky washer and the five-slate grille will get your attention surely. Does it look muscular and butch? Well, no, it looks cute in its stock ex-factory condition, but aftermarket accessories can dress it up to appeal to the explorer side of you. Another acronym for JIMNY could be Jeep-Inspired Machine, Nimble Yet Robust. It can also be compared in terms of design between a baby G-Wagon and Force Gurkha. It's actually a no-nonsense design with flat windows so that dust and rain do not stop, there is no sunroof, and the roof has a quirky Antenna. The rear has the extra tyre slapped on it, which adds some character to it and can double up as a shock absorber from a rear impact. Trapezoidal wheel arches look good, but the tyres in stock, though capable, look disproportionate. The Practical Drip Rails running along the side and rear edges will provide for easy installation of a roof carrier, which will take the overall stance of JIMNY a step up.

Design is always subjective. Some might say it's a glorified S-Presso, and some might say it's a baby G- Wagon, but what you can't take away is that it will definitely make heads turn, and the design will sink in finally.With a height of 1720 mm, and Length (with spare tyre) is 3985 mm, and a Width of 1645* mm, it's a very unusual size increasing its manoeuvrability with a minimum turning radius of 5.7 m.
