Suzuki has introduced a new two-seater Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) version of its small and lightweight off-roader, the Jimny. Since its global launch in 2018, the car model has attracted both private users and professionals who seek authentic off-road performance. The new LCV model will be available in very limited numbers in the UK in 2021. It is priced at £16,796 excluding VAT (£19,999 including VAT).
For enhanced utility, the light commercial vehicle model has a large 863-litre capacity, 33 litres more than the passenger vehicle model when rear sear seats are folded down, with a flat floor for better practicality and safety partition that protects cargo from moving into the cabin.
The Jimny LCV is available in one specification grade which includes air-conditioning, Allgrip Pro selectable 4WD with low transfer gear, DAB radio, Dual Sensor Brake Support, 15-inch Black steel wheels and cruise control with speed limiter.
The LCV model features the same off-roading performance desired by professionals as the passenger vehicle model with key essentials – a ladder frame, the three angles, 3-link rigid axle suspension and Allgrip Pro 4WD.
The LCV model comes equipped with the same safety features as the passenger vehicle model including Dual Sensor Brake Support (DSBS) which employs automatic brake to help avoid a collision, and hill hold and descent control that support driving on slopes. In addition, eCall, an emergency messaging function following a collision is also available as standard equipment.
