According to Suzuki, although the Jimny has now gained some extra metal and doors, 5-Door Jimny will still provide the driving performance expected by customers from an authentic off-roader, like the 3-door Jimny. 

Suzuki said they adopted the design and equipment from the original 3-door Jimny to appeal to a wider range of customers, especially those who love the 3-door Jimny but wished it came with more space and practicality.
