Suzuki first introduced the fourth-generation Jimny in the land down under back in 2018. It quickly became the staple SUV for those who are looking for a budget off-road SUV.

And it helped that the Jimny has a reputation for being reliable and practical, not to mention the 3-door's appealing looks.
