Hello
We are looking at a new Jimny. But we are not sure if the jimny is big enough.

How is your layout of the boot space?

Can you get room for a mid size dog ang gear? (A vizsla and hunting gear)

Weekend camping trips with 2 persons and 1 dog?

I hope that you guys will share some photos of you setups.
I need a little help to "sell" the jimny to my wife:)

I'm sure you're already aware that with the rear seats up, there's effectively zero boot space...... well, maybe a daschshund lying down would fit provided it didn't want to move :laugh:

With the seats down there's a good amount of space. Here's a pic of mine with seats down and rubber load liner in place. The load space is 130cm at its widest and 76cm deep from back door to end of the load liner (which is where the folded seatbacks end), you still have space beyond that behind the front seats, which are setup for a driver who is 5'10" / 178cm.



The big advantage of the Jimny is that it's very tall inside, so you can stack a lot of stuff vertically, provided you secure it with cargo nets. My usual setup is a 50/50 split in the back, keeping one seat for my son and the other flat for storage.This pic shows a 120litre bag at the bottom, with an 80l bag on top and still more space above.

I think you'd easily get two people, camping gear and a dog in relative comfort inside.

Mine, with the dog box in situ.

File Attachment:


Loaded up for a 500 mile trip (one way).

File Attachment:


I have enough room for a carcass tray, and kit, when stalking. Also fine for pigeon shooting decoys etc.

Can not help with the camping question, I'm afraid, but the Jimny was fine at a hotel.:lol:

With seats down and rubber matt laid out, there is surprisingly a decent amount of space.

When seats are upright, space is limited as yoy can see, but for bits of small kit (bino's, filding shivel, torches, hats, glives, medi kits etc etc..
ive managed to pack far more than i thought possible.

The built in boot cubby, together with my added boot boxes makes for handy free space.

But yeah..... it aint gonna fit 2 great danes in there lol.
