2020 Chevy Tahoe: Redesign, Changes, Engines, Debut

While Chevy presented the redesigned Chevy Silverado early this year the brand is also simultaneously working on the new-generation Silverado HD models and the truck-based SUVs. So, it’s not strange that the half-ton Silverado made the first to the public as this model will borrow the design, running gear, tech, etc. to the upcoming vehicles. The larger Suburban was spotted earlier while testing but the fast-selling Tahoe will also enter the new generation as the 2020 model.

The 2020 Chevy Tahoe, based on the spy photos and some sources, will finally switch to the independent rear suspension while coming also with the redesigned chassis and lighter. The model will get the modernized styling and interior adding also the newest teach features. The powertrain range should provide better performance and efficiency, with the possibility of the diesel engine introduction.

2020 Chevy Tahoe

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Design

The new, three-row 2020 Chevy Tahoe will share the same platform with the redesigned 2019 Silverado 1500 and come much lighter. With the extensive use of the high-tensile steel in the new underpinning and aluminum alloy for the swing-body elements, the new Tahoe should also reduce the weight significantly. The new-generation Tahoe could weigh as much 400 pounds less than the version it replaces. However, at the same time, the model could gain additional inches for the extended interior capacity.

Visually, the new version should come with the more modern styling but the heavily camouflaged prototype doesn’t reveal much. The model will sport the dual-port grille combined with the new headlights. The body lines and edges seem also to be softened but we will have a clear picture of model’s new look when the introduction takes place likely early next year.

Interior, Equipment:

The interior of the new Tahoe should increase the level of luxury, comfort and convenience. There should also be the increased interior capacity thanks to the additional inches and new cabin configuration.

The model will also get the newest tech features Chevy has on offer. The new infotainment system with the smartphone support and new center display will appear alongside the modern safety systems. The large SUV will rely on the systems like the adaptive cruise control, lane control, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, etc.

2020 Chevy Tahoe

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Powertrains

As for the engine choices, we should expect the 2020 Chevy Tahoe with the duo of familiar V-8 engines.

A 5.3-liter V-8 engine should appear with the improved fuel saving system and the new 8-speed automatic transmission. The power and torque ratings should stay around 355 hp and 383 lb-ft.

A 6.3-liter V-8 should be a more potent V-8 option in the combination with the new 10-speed automatic transmission.  The power with this engine should move to around 420 hp and torque to 460 lb-ft.

However, the next-generation Tahoe could also gain the diesel engine option. Again, related with the light-duty Silverado a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 would produce around 282 hp and torque of 450 lb-ft.

The new Tahoe will also switch to the rear independent suspension and will also provide the off-road upgrades.

2020 Chevy Tahoe: Release, Price

The redesigned 2020 Chevy Tahoe will likely debut at the Auto Show early next year. The price will likely move the starting point around $50, 000 but it will be known after the debut.

2020 Honda HR-V: News, Design, Specs, Price

Honda’s subcompact HR-V crossover was one of the first
contenders in this rapidly growing class and this well-to-ride and
flexible-interior model still remains in the top of the recommendation list.
The brand has been overhauling the crossover SUV range and we saw recently the
all-new Honda Passport and refreshed Pilot SUV. The HR-V received also the
number of updates for the 2019 version including the front and rear styling
refresh, updated interior and tech features and the addition of new Sport and
Touring trims.

The next 2020 Honda HR-V won’t bring substantial design upgrades and the model also has the up-to-date tech and safety equipment. Still, Honda will likely offer the new body color options and possibly the new exterior theme.  Honda promised also the hybridization of the entire light truck range but there are no hints yet that the next version will get this option. The addition of the turbocharged gasoline mill is among the possibilities as some reports claim as well.

2020 Honda HR-V

2020 Honda HR-V: Design

The recently refreshed, Honda Fit-related, subcompact
crossover will continue to benefit from the last year styling updates and there
won’t be substantial design or structural changes until the next full redesign.
Buyers should expect the next 2020 Honda HR-V with the new color options and
wheel styles. 

The smallest in Honda SUV range model has an attractive
appearance with the nicely defined body lines. 
The model combines actually the crossover and coupe styling cues which
seems like the good combination from the visual perspective. The HR-V has
up-to-date grille style and the new design of the headlights. Honda refreshed
also the look of the bumpers and taillights for the 2019 mid-update.

The model will use the 17-inch alloy wheels on the base
version and update the styling of the Sport version with 18-inch units and add
dark trim exterior accents.

Interior, Equipment:

Honda updated also the interior of the popular HR-V for the
2019 version. The model received the reshaped front seats and upgraded
upholstery quality plus improved sound insulation. The part of the mid-update
was also improved infotainment system and safety equipment.

The HR-V will provide the 5-inch center display, Bluetooth,
rearview camera and we could also see the extension of the actives safety
systems to the base trim. The Sport trim will add larger wheels, additional
sound insulation, a 7-inch center display. The upper grades will add the heated
seats, leather upholstery, a navigation system, etc.

The Safety Sense Suite available currently in the EX trim and higher could be introduced in lower trims as well.

2020 Honda HR-V

2020 Honda HR-V: Powertrains

The current Honda HR-V goes on sale in the US with the
single, naturally aspirated engine. A 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline mill
makes 141 horsepower and torque 121 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Honda HR-V
will also return this engine in the combination with the continuously variable
transmission and dilemma between the front- and all-wheel drive. With this
power unit, the model will provide a 28/34 mpg city-highway fuel economy with
the 2WD. The 4WD versions will return 27/31 mpg.

The big news for the 2020 version could be the inclusion of
the turbocharged four-cylinder engine as per the latest reports. A 1.5-liter
turbo-4 engine with the power around 174 hp like in the Civic hatch would be
the great upgrade for the subcompact crossover but Honda hasn’t yet confirmed
this possibility. The HR-V should also get the hybrid powertrain but it still
remains unclear when Honda will install it.

2020 Honda HR-V: Release, Price

The 2020 Honda HR-V will have the launch date in late 2019.
The price will again start slightly above $20, 000.

2020 Buick Envision: Changes, Design, Specs

The Chinese-built, mid-sized, five-seater Buick Envision is closing to the new model year after the 2019 refresh. While the model dropped the price for the recent mid-update it gained the updated styling and interior followed by the more powerful engine and the new 9-speed automatic transmission.

The next 2020 Buick Envision will continue to benefit from the mentioned upgrades and there won’t be major modifications before the next redesign probably for the 2022 version. The buyers should, however, expect new body color options and Buick might also make some of the advanced safety systems more accessible. The engine options and design will continue to the new model year in the same forms and the trim range should also stay in the same order.

2020 Buick Envision

2020 Buick Envision: Design

The 2020 Buick Envision will reprise the design theme of the current, refreshed version. The elegant, mid-size crossover gained the revised head and taillights for the recent refresh and the new grille version also adorns the front-end design. The waterfall design was discontinued in the favor of the sleeker chrome wing style.

The Envision has the sculpted rear-end design and profile lines and the sheet metal won’t change the structure and style before the next redesign. The new model year will, however, bring new color options and wheel design.

Interior, equipment:

The Envision changed just a few things inside the cabin for the recent refresh and the next version will stay in the same position as the current version regarding the cab style. The model will appear with the same control’s layout and material patterns. The trim range will likely stay as the current as well.

The Envision will deliver the new IntelliLink infotainment system with the 8-inch touchscreen and smartphone compatibility features in all grades. The standard equipment will also be the heated and power front seats, dual-zone climate control, a Wi-Fi hotspot and more. The new version could, however, broad the availability of some advanced safety systems for the new model year.

2020 Buick Envision

2020 Buick Envision: Powertrains

The 2020 Buick Envision will keep the current engine options and likely the same performance.

The base level powertrain will include a 2.5-liter non-turbo four-cylinder unit combined with the six-speed automatic transmission. The power and torque it delivers will remain at 197 hp and 192 pound-feet.

The more potent versions will have a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the hood. Buick updated the torque ratings of the engine for the recent mid-update and combines it also with the new 9-speed automatic transmission. This engine will provide 252 hp and torque of 295 pound-feet.

The front- and all-wheel drive options will again appear. The fuel economy will remain at around 25 combined with the base engine and FWD. The turbo-power version and AWD would return around 22 mpg combined.

2020 Buick Envision: Arrival, Price

While the refreshed 2019 version arrived with the lower prices the unchanged 2020 Buick Envision will likely cost slightly higher. The model will go on sale late in 2019.

2019 BMW X6: Redesign, Changes, Price

BMW replaced the very popular but aging X5 with the new-generation model recently and now moving the focus to the coupe-like styled X6. The Sports Activity Coupe X6 was recently spotted testing in the disguised form but the model looks to be in the final production body and the version spotted seems to be the hot M50i.

Well, BMW hasn’t revealed details but the new third-generation X6 will unsurprisingly follow the suite of the recently redesigned X5. So, with the slightly restyled exterior, the new-gen X6 will benefit from the new architecture, updated engines, new interior, and tech. The model should appear sometime in mid-2019 and could even debut as the 2019 BMW X6 or more likely the 2020 model.

2019 BMW X6

2019 BMW X6: Design

As it is the case with the current generation, the new 2019 BMW X6 will build on the X5 model and add more excitement to the look with the coupe-like roofline. The spotted prototype of the new-generation X6 has a more athletic body and borrow from both the X5 and X4 models.

Up front, we can detect a larger kidney grille version like on the new X5 and both headlights and taillights are thinner and more modern. The more dynamic front end comes in the combination with the X4-inspired tailgate and attractive coupe roof style. The waistline and the rest of the bodywork looks similar to the new X5.

With the slightly revised exterior style, the X6 like the all-new X5 will switch to the new architecture and should also grow in size. The new-gen X5 gained inches in all directions and the wheelbase is also 1.6 inches longer. The similar treatment is expected for the sportier X6.

Interior, Equipment:

The interior of the new X6 wasn’t yet in front of the spy camera but the cabin of the redesigned X5 surely gives us a clear picture about its look. The new-gen model will get the redesigned dash and center console alongside the higher quality materials.

The model will also follow the X5 regarding the available equipment. By default, there will be the digital instrument cluster and large center display. The newest iDrive operating system will also be integrated as well as the best of the active safety technologies.

2019 BMW X6

2019 BMW X6: Performance

When it comes to the engine options, the 2019 BMW X6 won’t also be the different story from the new X5. With the new architecture, the model will also introduce the updated engines.

The entry level will be the 40i model with the inline-6 engine. The 3.0-liter turbo unit will deliver around 335 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque like in the redesigned X5. The new X6 will again offer the buyers with the six-cylinder option and the 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbocharged V-8 will make around 456 hp and torque up to 479 lb-ft.

The 8-speed automatic will transfer power to the all-wheel-drive system. Expect also the 60-mph run in about 5.3 seconds with the six-cylinder engine and around 4.6 seconds with the V-8.

2019 BMW X6: Arrival, Price

The 2019 BMW X6 should appear next spring and with the slightly increased price like the new X5.

2020 Audi Q7: Refresh, Changes, Arrival

The seven-passenger, full-size Audi Q7 SUV approached the mid-update after the redesigned model arrived for the 2017 model year. The family hauler was spotted several times and we can detect the changes on model’s front and rear fascias.

Audi will also boost the connectivity and safety tech of the sleek and comfortable SUV while major design upgrades are not expected inside the cabin. The 2020 Audi Q7 will also improve the power and efficiency as the reports claim while will likely keep the same range of the advanced powertrains and no diesel in the States of course.

2020 Audi Q7

2020 Audi Q7: Design

The second-generation, MLB-platform-based, multi-material Audi Q7 is the sleek and attractive SUV but with the modifications on the front and rear-end sections, the 2020 Audi Q7 will adopt some styling cues of the newer Audi models.

Based on the spy photos, Audi hasn’t changed the design of the model’s profile and the sleek body panels combined with the defined character line which stretches around the tailgate will continue in the same form.

The front-end section is, however, where the transformation begins. The new headlights design uses the styling cues from the Audi A6 while the grille version on the prototype seems a bit smaller than on the current model.

Audi seems also that made some changes in the lower bumper area but they don’t look so obvious. The same is with the rear side which has almost identical taillights as the current version.

Interior, equipment:

Indie the cabin, Audi will surely upgrade connectivity and tech features plus add fresh material and texture options. However, there is no proof that the model will adopt the dash design as on the new Q8 despite it could be the case.

The model will also upgrade with the latest crash-avoidance systems. It will be well equipped from the base variant and provide great interior and ride comfort. The different high-quality material options will be mixed with the attractive trim pieces and premium comfort features. Audi will also add the new steering wheel.

2020 Audi Q7 1

2020 Audi Q7: Powertrains

Audi will likely improve the power and efficiency ratings of the 2020 Audi Q7 but no exact details about the powertrain upgrades.

What is sure the diesel-powered version won’t appear in the US while on the Old Continent the 3.0-liter TDI will be in the offer in several output options as well as the potent V-8 diesel in the SQ7.

Expect the US version with the turbo-4 and V-6 turbo options but with the improved performance and efficiency. The current 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine provides 252 hp and torque of 273 pound-feet. The 3.0-liter V-6 supercharged engine boosts the performance with available 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque.

2020 Audi Q7: Arrival, Price

The 2020 Audi Q7 will hit the market in late 2019. The mid-update won’t affect the price radically and the model will again start around $50, 000.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: News, Design

Honda’s popular CR-V SUV has a versatile and roomy cabin and also delivers a comfortable ride with plenty of safety gear in all models. The model was all-new for the 2017 model year and Honda promised recently the hybridization of the entire light-duty truck range. The 2019 CR-V will appear with minimal changes without of the styling and powertrain upgrades when speaking about the currently available engine options but according to some reports the 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid could appear in late 2019 model year or wait for the 2020 version.

What’s is known so far, the hybrid powertrain should use the same formula as Accord Hybrid sedan with firm’s two-motor configuration. The styling and interior should be very similar to the petrol-powered models.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Design

There are no details from Honda about the hybrid version of the desirable CR-V but if the model arrives as the 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid, it won’t differ much visually from the current non-hybrid version. On the hand, if Honda waits for the 2020 model year launch the model could come with the refreshed styling.

In any case, there won’t be obvious differences between the hybridized model and conventionally powered CR-Vs. The model will continue in the same shape and size while the distinction will make unique grille version, wheel design and appropriate badging.

Interior, features:

Interior of the CR-V hybrid will also be the familiar form from the current CR-V. The model will have a high dose of interior style but will win with the practicality and functionality. A number of clever compartments will be available inside the cabin and the CR-V has well-placed controls as well. The model will also be available with the upscale upgrades including high-quality upholstery, heating features, and will also include Honda’s latest tech features.

The model will come with the responsive infotainment system but will also be equipped with the array of the safety equipment. The equipment list will include systems like adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, etc.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Powertrain

There is no doubt, that 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid (or another model year version) will use Honda’s two-motor system. Like the Accord Hybrid sedan, the CR-V SUV should get the Atkinson cycle 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine in the combination with the electric motors and battery pack. The power and performance of the system haven’t appeared yet but the same setup makes 212 hp and manages 47 combined fuel economy in the Acord sedan.

The CR-V Hybrid will likely be the most powerful CR-V and the most efficient as well. It will beat easily 30 mpg combined of the turbo-4 powertrain and will also challenge the rivals of RAV4 Hybrid, Rogue Hybrid, etc.

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid: Arrival, Price

No confirmation of the arrival of the CR-V Hybrid yet from Honda. The reports claim the model could arrive late in the 2019 model year or more likely wait for the refresh and the 2020 version.

The price of the possible 2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid is also unknown. The base model of the current CR-V starts from around $25, 000 and the hybrid would close to the 30k range likely.

2020 Cadillac XT5: Refreshed, Changes, Release

Cadillac has been busy with launching the new and redesigned
models with the emphasis on the SUV type versions. The brand has the plan to
deliver the new or refreshed models through 2021. The small XT4 crossover SUV
arrived as the 2019 model and the all-new is also a three-row 2020 XT6 model.
The largest SUV in brand’s range, the Cadillac Escalade should also debut in
the redesigned form and the new CT4 and CT5 sedans are also the part of the
plan. The brand promises also the new electric crossover. However, the brand’s
successful, mid-size XT5 crossover will also get some attention and the
refreshed version will hit the market as the 2020 Cadillac XT5.

Cadillac hasn’t yet revealed the changes and specs of the refreshed XT5 but leaked details reveal modest styling changes. The model should also come with the upgraded tech and safety range and could also bring the turbocharged inline-4 option. 

2020 Cadillac XT5

2020 Cadillac XT5: Design

The luxury XT5 crossover SUV based on GM’s C1XX platform
debuted for the 2017 model year and replaced the old-nomenclature Cadillac SRX.
For the fourth model year after the current generation launch, the XT5 model
will get the mid-cycle update and available details suggest usual styling
updates of one mid-update.

The 2020 Cadillac XT5 will switch from the current grille
design to the new style inspired by the 2016 Escala Concept. The new grille
should provide a more elegant style while it seems that the model will keep the
same headlights design. The shape and size of the model will also keep the
current form and the profile will also look familiar.

The rear will also display a new signature of tealights
while the rest should keep the same style and contours.

Interior, Equipment:

Inside the cabin, the refreshed XT5 should also adopt some
styling cues of the newest SUVs in the range and upgrade tech and safety
equipment.

A well-equipped from the base version, the XT5 will provide
features like the dual zone climate control, keyless ignition and entry, power
front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, etc. The leather upholstery and
heated front seats will be available one step higher than the base trim.

2020 Cadillac XT5

2020 Cadillac XT5: Powertrains

As for the powertrain options, the 2020 Cadillac XT5 will
surely repeat the currently only available 3.6-liter V-6 engine. This unit is
also under the hood of the new XT6 and makes 310 hp and torque of 271
pound-feet.

The reports suggest, however, the introduction of the GM’s
new 9-speed automatic transmission. The big update could also be an addition of
the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine which is available in other markets.
The version of the engine in China makes 258 hp where the brand offers also the
mild-hybrid system but no information appeared suggesting this possibility for
the US market.

2020 Cadillac XT5: Release, Price

The 2020 Cadillac XT5 should make the premiere in the coming
months with the on-sale date later in the year. The new upgrades should also
lift the price slightly.     

2020 Nissan Qashqai: News, Design, Specs, Price

Nissan’s compact Qashqai crossover SUV is one the most popular and one of the best picks in the class. The model entered the current generation in 2013 and received the mid-cycle update for the 2017 version with the extensive styling, interior and suspension upgrades. Recently, the 2019 Qashqai debuted with the upgraded engine range including the new 1.3-liter turbocharged engine and revamped other units. With the new engine, Nissan boosted also the infotainment system that is available in all expect the base version.

As for the next 2020 Nissan Qashqai, there won’t be major upgrades as Nissan announced the redesigned Qashqai in 2020 likely as the 2021 model. The next Qashqai will continue to live on the recent updates while the next generation model will be the new from the ground up.

2020 Nissan Qashqai

2020 Nissan Qashqai: Design

The 2020 Nissan Qashqai will repeat the current styling form which the model wears since the last, 2017 mid refresh. The attractive crossover has the V-motion grille style combined with the sharp, pointing headlights. The creases on the hood and profile side give it a more aggressive presence as well as the arched roofline and sculpted tailgate. The shapely rear fenders and boomerang-style taillights make the model also attractive from the rear-side perspective.

As for the next generation Qashqai, the model will arrive with the sleeker styling and switch to the new platform. The model should stay in similar dimensions while the new Common Module Family platform will provide better performance and allow adoption of the hybrid tech.

Interior, equipment:

Inside the cabin, the 2020 Qashqai will stay familiar story. Nissan upgraded the infotainment system for the 2019 version with the more responsive interface and the system is available in all grades except the entry-level version.

The Qashqai will also provide comfort for adults and decent cargo space. The buyers will also choose between several material levels and textures. Nissan equips all models with the advanced safety tech and the next Qashqai will also rely on an array of the modern systems. The new generation version will bring the updates to ProPilot autonomous tech and increased connectivity.

2020 Nissan Qashqai

2020 Nissan Qashqai: Powertrains

The nimble and comfortable Qashqai got the new 1.3-liter turbocharged engine for the 2019 version. The new turbocharged gasoline replaced the 1.2- and 1.6-liter gas-powered units and comes in two states of tune. The 2020 Nissan Qashqai will offer this engine with 140 hp at the disposal and a more powerful version will provide 160 hp.

The 2020 Qashqai will also return the familiar diesel units updated also for the 2019 version. Buyers will choose between the 1.5-liter cDi and more powerful 1.7-liter unit. The larger diesel engine makes 148 hp and uses also an AdBlue system to control emissions.

The new generation Qashqai will, however, introduce two hybrid powertrains while there won’t be the fully electric version. An ePower system will integrate the petrol engine regenerating the battery which powers an electric motor. The plug-in hybrid system will be sourced from Mitsubishi.

2020 Nissan Qashqai: Release, Price

The 2020 Nissan Qashqai will hit the market in late 2019. The new generation version will debut in 2020. Expect the similar price range for the 2019 version.

2020 Buick Encore: Redesign, Changes, Release

Buick is working on the new generation Encore model and the
latest spy photos are the proof. The brand’s smallest, subcompact crossover has
proven on the market and Buick will try to support its increasing sales with
the new design and features. The model was all-new in 2013 and after the
refresh for 2017, the 2020 Buick Encore will enter the second generation.

Buick hasn’t yet disclosed what changes the new Encore hides under the camo but we should expect extensive upgrades in all aspects. The model will arrive on the upgraded platform and with the new exterior and cabin design. The new tech and convenience features will also appear in the redesigned version. The next Encore should, however, return with the same engine displacement while pairing it with the new automatic transmission. The twined version of the Encore, the Opel Mokka X goes on sale in the overseas market.

2020 Buick Encore

2020 Buick Encore: Platform and Design

Details about the redesigned 2020 Buick Encore are still
scarce and it isn’t yet clear what platform the model will use. The current GM
Gamma II Platform is shared with the current Mokka X and Chevy Trax and while
the new Mokka X will be based on PSA Group’s CMP small car platform, the new
Encore could borrow it under license or GM will use its underpinning for both
small Buick and Chevy models.

On the other hand, based on the spy photos, the new Encore
seems to have a slightly larger body which could also mean longer wheelbase and
more interior space. However, the new version will stay in the subcompact class
and therefore there won’t be big dimension changes.

The changes in model’s styling are also hard to identify. The rising beltline and slightly resculpted fender flares can be detected. Buick’s latest design language will define the styles of the grille and lighting units and they should be similar to what we can see on brand’s latest models. The tailgate seems also reshaped slightly and the roof line also looks slightly longer.

Interior, equipment:

Inside the cabin of the smallest Buick crossover, we should
expect the new center cluster and instrument panel. Buick will also employ new
materials and textures and improve seat comfort.

The new generation version will also come with the new
connectivity and upgraded driver aids. All versions will use the latest
infotainment system with smartphone support and the model will also equip
keyless entry and ignition, power driver seat, and more in the base version.
The upper grades will add more sophisticated materials and comfort features.
The active driver aids should appear in more trims and with upgraded features.

It is also possible the inclusion of the high-class Avenir trim with the unique exterior and interior details and top-notch materials and electronic aids.

2020 Buick Encore

2020 Buick Encore: Powertrain

In the engine department, the new 2020 Buick Encore should
repeat a 1.4-liter engine displacement. A turbocharged unit is available in two
outputs in the current version with the base model producing 138 hp and more
powerful generating 153 hp. However, Buick should replace the current 6-speed
automatic transmission with the new 9-gear setup with possible upgrades to the
performance and efficiency.

The model will arrive again with the front- and all-wheel
drive. The fuel economy should remain around 30 mpg combined.

2020 Buick Encore: Arrival, Price

The redesigned 2020 Buick Encore will go on sale in late
2019 and price should stay close to the current range.

2020 Suzuki Jimny: News, Design, Release

Suzuki redesigned the iconic, small off-roader Jimny for the 2019 model year and the model represents the fourth-generation version. The new Jimmy arrived slightly shorter on the reinforced chassis and kept the retro look but with the influence of some styling cues from other off-roaders. The latest Jimny introduced also the new engine version but for the modern times the new version packs also some advanced tech and safety systems and can also boost the comfort with several high-level features.

For the next model year, the 2020 Suzuki Jimny will be mostly the carryover model with some changes in the equipment offer and addition of new options. The new trim versions could appear and Suzuki hasn’t mentioned the new engine options. More attention for the new model year, Suzuki could also get with the special edition version or new exterior package.

2020 Suzuki Jimny

2020 Suzuki Jimny: Design

After the thorough redesigned for the 2019 model year, the 2020 Suzuki Jimny hasn’t much room for the new changes and the next version won’t bring notable visual or structural upgrades. Buyers should expect additional body color options over the current eight shades and three dual-tone choices. Suzuki might also add a new trim option or introduce the special edition version.

The latest-generation Jimny sits on the strengthened ladder frame with the rigid axles and coil springs front and rear. The newest model is actually 1.2 inches shorter than the previous version at 143,5 inches in total and slightly wider at 64, 8 inches.

Visually, the model remains retro-styled off-roader with the flat body panels and several styling similarities with the Mercedes G-Class, Toyota Fj Cruiser, etc. The styling of the model defines tall, boxy-shaped silhouette combined with the chunky fenders, circular headlights and tailgate-mounted spare wheel.

Interior, equipment:

Inside the cabin, the Jimny continues with the straightforward design and durable materials. The dashboard style shares some styling cues with the recent Jeep models.  The model has a good driving position and comfortable seats. The cargo space is just over 3 cubes with all seats in use. It expands to 13, 3 cubes with the rear seats folded.

As for the available equipment, the Jimny will offer a pretty long list of useful and modern features. Buyers will be able to get a 7-inch touchscreen display, smartphone and Bluetooth connectivity, power and heated seats, heated mirrors and more.

The off-road-ready Jimny gets also a number of the safety systems. The safety list will include automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition, automatic emergency braking, tire pressure monitoring, and lane departure warning.

The power for the 2020 Suzuki Jimny will come from the 1.5-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine. The engine replaced a 1.3-liter unit in the previous generation version and provides 100 hp and 95 pound-feet of torque.

The Jimny will fit the engine with either a standard 5-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox. A standard fit will be the AllGrip Pro part-time all-wheel-drive system with the low range gear. The system can switch between the 2H mode with the power on the front wheels while 4H activates all wheels. For the rugged off-road terrains, the driver can switch to a 4L mode to activate the low range gear.

The Jimny can tow up to 2, 866 pounds. An approach angle of 37 degrees and 49-degrees departure angle improve also the rugged terrain capability.
