THE MOST COMPACT JEEP

THE COMPACT SUVAll-wheel-drive Suzuki Jimny SUV. World-famous Japanese firm Suzuki Motor Corporation has its origins from the founded in 1920 the company produced looms. The first motor vehicle with the brand name Suzuki was the motorbike that was released in 1952. In the future, this firm has become one of the largest manufacturers of two-wheel vehicles. Its first car, called the Suzulight, Suzuki Motor Corporation was created in 1955 — it was a miniature triple machine (the fourth seat was occupied by the spare wheel, located behind the driver), equipped with 15-horsepower two-stroke two-cylinder engine working volume of 0.36 L.

One of the most renowned compact cars of the company became a Suzuki SUV Jimny, established in 1968 and produced until the present time. Machine the first issue was a compact frame with all-wheel drive station wagon with a two-stroke 25-horsepower engine with a working volume of 0.36 l and spring suspension. Vehicle weight was only 600 kg, wheelbase 1930 mm. Utilitarian and relatively inexpensive all-terrain vehicle he was to use in Japan good demand, and the company began to improve the car, leaving intact the concept of the compact frame SUV.
 
In 1974, Suzuki has updated the Jimny seriously, equipping it with two-stroke three-cylinder engine liquid-cooled working volume of 0.55 l and a new, more spacious four-seater body (spare tire this version of the Jimny moved to the back door of the body).
In 1977, the SUV is equipped with a “real” four-stroke four-cylinder 41 HP engine, liquid-cooled working volume of 0.8 L. this model Jimny firm has entered the international market, thereby creating an entirely new niche in the sector of four-wheel drive vehicles.
 
In 1986 began production of a modified Suzuki Jimny, which is the outer market sold under the name Suzuki Samurai. It is worth mentioning that the machine had a huge success and was exported to more than 100 countries. Argue that during this period, the SUV was voted best car by the ratio of “price — quality”. However, some opponents to notice that the decisive role in this played ratio is still quite low the first parameter.

In the period from 1990 to 1998 went off the Assembly line variant Jimny with a 55-horsepower turbocharged engine working volume of 1.3 liters.
 
The car has undergone a number of upgrades, and in 1998 appeared a mini-jeep with a new, more convenient body. Spring suspension remained, but the car was gas shock absorbers with improved characteristics. Jimny equipped with the new four-cylinder four-stroke engine with a capacity of 45 HP and a working volume of one liter.
With such a light motor four-wheel drive car has become a true vehicle that could compete with the most solid SUVs. Soon came another improved version of the Jimny, which was completed with more powerful (60-horsepower fuel injection and a 64-strong carburetor) engines working volume of 1.3 liters. The SUV is equipped with new five-speed manual transmission.
 
Not to forget the car and the Japanese domestic market — from 1993 to 2002, he had produced a variant of Jimny Sierra with a 70-strong engine working volume of 1.3 liters. However, this version is still equipped with spring suspension. Since 2002, the Jimny Sierra was carried out with 16-valve fuel injected the 88-strong engine working volume of 1,328 litres.

In 1998, the market appeared Jimny with an updated body — the car lost its former angularity, body lines become more fluid, and its sharp corners are gone. Changed and the front of the jeep. But, most importantly, the upgraded SUV finally broke up with a spring suspension, having received instead of her more modern spring — it significantly improved the handling of the jeep and it is running smoothly. And yet — the car was produced with two variants of the body — all-metal type “three-door wagon” and type “convertible” with the soft-top or hard removable plastic roof over the rear part of the machine.
 
In 2004, Suzuki started supplying to Europe version of the jeep called Jimni with a 1.5 dCi four-cylinder 65-horsepower diesel engine a working volume of 1.46 liters. The engine is designed in accordance with the advanced trends of the creation of such CommonRai engines with electronic injection of fuel. Maximum torque of 160 N m of the engine is achieved at 2000 Rev/min, fuel consumption is 6.1 liters per 100 kilometers.
 
Design
 
The military — based jeep solid spar frame, over which the eight rubber cushions secured to the body, and the bottom through a system of springs and levers front and rear axles. Optimal frame rigidity is achieved through its three-piece design to provide stable movement of the machine and the repayment of beats in overcoming irregularities. To all, this scheme of the jeep combined with the softly running motor and effective sound insulation makes it almost silent when driving.
 
Solid axles with a wide track jeep provide a high level of reliability of the suspension, combined with good roadholding. The fact is that when one wheel is rolling on an obstacle, the wheel on the other side of the bridge stronger is pressed against the road, and this increases the contact patch with the surface, resulting in optimal traction with the road.

The machine is equipped with highly efficient three arms suspension which is equally well behaved as high-speed cornering and when driving over rough terrain. The dampers and springs separate type increases suspension travel and make it a smooth-running, creating a high level of comfort for both the driver and passengers.
 
The drive system on the car — with switchable front axle and dual high.
 
The machine shop — quadruple, with convenient and comfortable chairs. The design of the driver’s workplace has been developed in accordance with the latest ergonomic principles that allow designers to find the optimum location of the driver’s seat and controls. Key switches and gauges are grouped in such a way that even a cursory look at them, the driver received all the necessary information.
 
The feeling of comfort when driving adds air conditioning and power steering. As a result, even on long trips the driver feels quite comfortable.
The trunk of mini-jeep, of course, is small, however, this disadvantage to some extent kompensiruet folding rear sofa, roof rack car, designed for installation of the upper trunk.
 
In Russia Jimny comes with all-aluminum inline four-cylinder gasoline 1.3-liter 86 HP engine type (G13ВВ liquid cooling system multi-point injection, equipped with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Equipped with two camshafts located at the top of the motor you’ll be an instant reaction to the pressing of the accelerator pedal and good fuel economy. Combined with four-wheel drive transmission it is capable of channel all his power to force roads of any complexity. Torque using a specially designed chain for the Jimmy (it is not only significantly lowers friction and noise, but also increases the efficiency of the vehicle) is transmitted to a mechanical or automatic transmission.

All-wheel drive transmission with a controllable pneumatic coupling connection of the front axle gives the possibility to switch between 2WD/4WD in motion that allows you to react instantly to changing road situations and weather conditions. And the four wheel drive mode, the driver can choose between Overdrive, more suitable for fairly smooth roads, and reduction suitable for Razyezzhaya primers, as well as steep climbs and descents.
 
It should be noted that Jimmy with the same vigour and gradually slows down, and gaining speed. All wheels it is equipped with highly efficient brakes and the front brake discs have increased in diameter. The brake drive is via an eight-inch vacuum booster, which allows you to quickly stop the car even when pressing lightly on the brake pedal. Everything in the brake system is LSPV valve limits the braking force in proportion to the load, which prevents premature blocking of the rear wheels during hard braking, which improves braking performance fully loaded machine.
 
Security
 
When you create a Jimny Suzuki Motors paid much attention to the vehicle’s active safety. So, excellent handling mini-SUV forced acceleration and braking help the driver to avoid dangerous situations. The considerable help he has three-channel anti-lock braking system with four sensors — with its help, the steering works well, even during emergency braking.
 
Was not forgotten and passive safety Jimny. So, the rear seats of the car are equipped with three-point seat belts ЕLR and front — the same belts with pretensioners and dual front airbags. The high headrests on the front and rear seats protect passengers in the rear shocks. In collisions the integrity of the area provide built-in protection bars of the door.
 
The strength and stiffness of the body and frame Jimny responsible for energy absorption in a frontal impact and the degree of dispersion was determined by means of computer simulation.
 
In conclusion, it makes sense to mention the comparative tests of the aged-peers — Japanese mini jeep Suzuki Jimny SUV and domestic “Lada 4×4” (Niva), Jimni not bad showed itself, and for comfort, and terrain, however, and the old “Niva”, despite the almost complete absence in its design of the current options, worthy of competing with the “Japanese”, proving once again that Russian Rover deserves a long life and further development.
