The 1,200 units the UK was allocated for 2019 have already been spoken for so it’s welcoming to see the new mighty Jimny start off with a 12 month waiting list.

They’re a cool wee wagon. They are supposed to be good off-road too?

Try 600 units (year one) and an 18 month wait, it's going to hurt suzuki, unless they can get jimny customers into a vitara for a couple of years.

They had been selling around 1100/yr of the previous one, so with demand for the new one, and previous owners holding off their bi-annual jimny change, to get a new one, it's not good at all.

Slight side note long way to go to be longest production original beetle ran 1945-2003.
New jimny looks a lot nicer should fly
Should have worded better - it remained relatively unchanged, with the chassis being the same for that time, unlike other models who, as you have rightly said out produced

I may be wrong but as I no it the beetle chassis didn't change that much during that period. Few face lifts around 70s removing split screen, port hole rear window and light changes but i would have been comfortably sure you could reshell a 1945 onto a 2003 chassis. Another notable mention for long runner is the Citroen 2cv ran from 40s to 90s with minimal changes. Apologies kinda ocd on these things

Stopped at Roadside Dollingstown this evening to look round their Black one. I really like it. A couple out for a walk came over to look round it too. Very eye catching. The blocky design certainly stands out against modern curves and swoops.

A customer of mine test drove one at the weekend and has been promised a delivery date of July which is odd if this years allocation is already gone.
