I am a sedate driver and don’t need German/ Czech sedan characteristics and dynamics in my BOF 4×4 boxy shaped Jimny.
BHPian RijuC recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
I am a 6 footer and 93 kg body weight driver. Drove the Jimny Alpha AT from Gurgaon to Dalhousie, Khajjiar to Gurgaon, Gurgaon to Lucknow, Lucknow to Gurgaon without getting tired. I never felt the driver’s footwell is too cramped.
During the expressway drives for these above mentioned sections, drove my Jimny at 100 kmph on cruise control. And there was absolutely no problem. I am a sedate driver and don’t need German/ Czech sedan characteristics and dynamics in my BOF 4×4 boxy shaped Jimny. Otherwise, I can do zig zag through the trucks or overtake slow moving trucks safely with OD-off.
I recommend getting a real test drive for 20-30 kms or ask your Jimny owner friend to lend it to you for a day and then post a proper review instead of posting your perception about this 4×4 vehicle.
I am not an off-roading enthusiast. I needed a relatively well built vehicle which can easily be driven through extremely bad roads of Gurgaon and an occasional AWD capability for not so aggressive off-the-tarmac adventures, with Automatic Transmission, within my budget of 14-15 lakhs. There was no petrol engine AWD+AT available in India below 20 lakhs. Hence, I am driving a Jimny today.
This is my primary and only car.
