Got questions about the new Jimny?
Anyway, I'll be at the UK press launch of the new Jimny at the end of November, and I already have quite a list of questions I'll be asking the Suzuki chaps. I can't guarantee they'll have answers for the more technical ones, but I will certainly try.
If there's anything you want to know that hasn't been answered so far, feel free to post it here and I'll do my best to get an answer.
BTW, we've been told to expect prices in November so I imagine we'll be told at the event.

They tend to get uncomfortable when you ask about future product, but I do want to ask why the mild-hybrid SHVS system hasn't been made available, and if it might in the future. So yes, I'll add it to the list - ta.

Since the current Jimny automatic transmission is only rated at a maximum torque input of 114.5 Nm, has Suzuki worked with Aisin Warner to somehow upgrade the specs in this new model?
I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

So far they've told us the transmission has been revised and features reduced internal friction, but I will ask for more detail.

Max towing weight (braked) kg: 1,300
Max towing weight (un-braked) kg: 350
Trailer nose weight kg: 75
Same towing capacities too, good to know, no doubt Scottish farmers will still be chucking 2 tons on the back of them & driving to town when their Landys break.
