The Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme) has revealed the crash test results for the new Suzuki Jimny SUV. The new Suzuki Jimny has scored a 3-star safety rating in the latest crash tests conducted by Euro NCAP.
The new fourth-gen Suzuki Jimny scored 73 percent in the adult occupancy category and 84 percent in the child occupancy category. But the new Jimny scored only 50 percent in the vulnerable road users and safety assist systems category.
The Suzuki Jimny managed to receive only three-star rating because the driver's side airbag didn't deploy properly. This could result in serious head injury in case of a frontal crash. The tested Jimny is a three-door model and it is a mini SUV which has been already launched in Japan.
The Euro-spec Suzuki Jimny also comes with autonomous emergency braking (AEB) as standard. But the Jimny did not score any points for this feature as Euro NCAP requires head restraint performance for AEB points.
The Suzuki Jimny sold in the European markets is equipped with safety features such as six airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounts on the rear seats, seat belt reminder, lane assist system and autonomous emergency braking (AEB).
The new Suzuki Jimny draws power from a 1.5-litre petrol engine that produces 100bhp and 130Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox. The Suzuki Jimny is offered with a four-wheel-drive system.
