The one and only small, lightweight four-wheel drive is how Suzuki pitches the first all-new Jimny for 20 years. It gets an updated interior and funky exterior styling, but is it a match for the serious large 4x4 establishment? Matt Prior puts it up against the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser 3dr Utility in a disused quarry to find out. Subscribe now:

      The new jimmy is vastly over priced, there’s nothing to it to command what they want for it.

      Simply you didn't put the Jimny on the same route and placement as what you did for the Landcruiser. By the looks of it, Jimny could've eaten that route in seconds!

      A rubbish driver is blaming the car in this situation. An experienced driver (off-road) would of clattered that obstacle. Biased review and not worth the pixels its displayed on.
