Why Jimny is the Perfect Car for Women?
It is no secret that Jimny has a fan club which is truly loyal. Over the decades it has proved time and time that it is an extraordinary vehicle on the off-road path. The latest model simply took this legacy and bumped it up a notch. By taking so many new aspects into consideration concerning safety, capability and aesthetic this new Jimny embodies the past while uplifting it to a slightly more modern look and feel.
Being a woman with interesting taste in cars and things that I am drawn to aesthetically I often find it rather difficult to choose a vehicle. In fact, purchasing a vehicle is probably more worrisome in my mind than what my hair looks like half the time. Well and this is because it is not something you do often or at least often enough to just change it up all the time, most people that is. It is also strangely one of the few things that my husband and I rarely agree on. We both enjoy different vehicles for vastly different reasons, but the Jimny fits it all for us.
Here are my number one reasons why the Jimny is a perfect car for women:
Overall, I would say that most women like things to look good. Not just cute and fun but actually work well with the lines of design to create something that pleases the eye. Personally, I enjoy the rugged look of a vehicle over sleek lines. The new Jimny brings you a world where both exist together which undoubtedly makes for a beautiful vehicle. No matter where you are, from the city centre or out deep into the bush you will look amazing doing it all in this timeless design.
Now, previous models always had this one thing that really made them less attractive to people to tend to be on the road just as much as off it. The new model has alleviated any issues in this regard with a spanking new 1.5-litre petrol engine, which produces peak outputs of 75kW and 130Nm of torque. Granted the ground clearance is not all that impressive with 210mm however the the cleaver design helps this vehicle from scrapping when tackling steep angles. It comes in two specification levels (GA and GLX) and with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed auto transmission, both of which come with a high/low transfer gear ratio selector, making it suitable for basically any off-road driving.
Then the fuel consumption is claimed to be manual derivative is 6.3L/100km and 6.8L/100km for the automatic, which honestly just blows my socks off. Making this model a fantastic choice as a city car on top of its off-road capabilities.
Any women who has a keen interest in doing any off-road or outdoors activities but still has to be in the city on a regular basis would really find this car a great fit.
This being one of the main issues when driving around, you want to feel and know that you are safe. The new models of Jimny come out with ABS brakes with emergency brake assistance (BAS) and electronic stability programme (ESP) to prevent wheel slip on all wheels and to help the car track true on slippery surfaces and at high speed. The addition of side-impact bars and two front airbags ensure the best possible passive crash safety and impact-absorbing zones in the bumper, wipers, cowl, bonnet and hinges, and fenders to protect pedestrians really makes this car look fantastic while keeping you safe.
So, in conclusion I really feel that his vehicle is a great choice for any woman. Offering a variety of features for both off-road and road use it truly does give you the best range.
