Suzuki GB PLC has announced its supply of Jimny compact 4x4 vehicles to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution; the vehicles are based at various locations around the UK and used for beach patrol work where conditions require a lightweight vehicle.
With its push button four wheel drive system, the Jimny allows lifeguards to be close to the water's edge for long periods.
On hand to assist the Jimny in the sand is Suzuki’s Drive Select 4x4 system which features a transfer box with high or low ratios as well as the ability to engage high ratio while travelling at speeds of up to 62mph. The current Jimny was first introduced in 1998 and has a 1.3-litre four cylinder engine, offering 85PS with official combined fuel consumption of 39.2mpg and CO2 emissions of 171g/km.
Jimny is available from £10,995 for the SZ3 model and includes metallic paint, air conditioning, front fog lamps, roof rails and remote central locking as standard equipment.
