Suzuki Jimny 1.3 16v and T@B

Marc Rattue reviewed on 02 August 2021 a Suzuki Jimny 1.3 16v (86 PS/63 Kw, Year: 2005 - 2017) with a T@B 320 RS of n.a. kg.

Very glad I came across this excellent site. I was worried about the way my Jimny required 4000revs plus at times to get up hills when towing, but I see that this is as expected, and to be fair to the car, the temperature needle has never budged, so it seems happy with it. You just have to get accustomed to the sound of the engine pitch at that those revolutions from time to time. I have looked at more powerful cars for towing, but a Tab360 and Jimny are such a great looking combination, and for me, complement each others small but spirited and adventurous characters perfectly! Fairly new to towing, and don't have anyone to advise, so very grateful for the info on this site.

Happy Towing!

Suzuki Jimny 1.3 16v aut. and Caravan

Vitaliy reviewed on 29 September 2012 a Suzuki Jimny 1.3 16v aut. (86 PS/63 Kw, Year: 2005 - 2017) with a Caravan of 600 kg.

Having bought Jimmy (petrol/automatic) and after following in love with caravanning I started to look for an appropriate caravan. Since this is a small car I had to look for something small and light. The only option identified was QEK Junior formerly produced in Eastern German. Itís kerbweight is around 350/maximum weight 500 kg (with breaks).

I think itís a good option for the car. The car holds the road quite well. I donít feel any particular negative impact on driving except for the acceleration which is very slow for this car anyway. On good roads the car with caravan goes up to 90 km/h. Fuel consumption increases up to 10 liters per 100 km (with airbox on the car), particularly when the opposite wind blows. The only inconvenience, which I noticed, is a small tank (around 40 litters) which makes you stop at petrol station more often. If you have no other option except Jimny, QEK Junior can be a good option.

The longest distance per night I made with this caravan is around 750 km (Kiev-Crimea).

Suzuki Jimny 1.3 16v and Eriba

John reviewed on 09 July 2011 a Suzuki Jimny 1.3 16v (86 PS/63 Kw, Year: 2005 - 2017) with a Eriba Familia 320 of 900 kg.

Towing the little 1993 Eriba Puck with my 1300cc Jimny is no problems, I have to go through the gears a bit more than normal, but as when towing this it is to be expected, vision is very good all around and have found that my car wing mirrors can see down the side of the van without extensions. Rear visibility is very good as with the height of the jimny you can see right through the van with the curtains open.

Suzuki Jimny 1.3 16v and Lunar

Roy Woods reviewed on 19 January 2008 a Suzuki Jimny 1.3 16v (86 PS/63 Kw, Year: 2005 - 2017) with a Lunar Ariva of 1000 kg.

Towing the Lunar is just great. With a stabilser on a windy day it gave me no problems.Road holding was very good and kept up at a steady spead of 50mph. The Suzuki pulled very well, although I had to use the gears quite a lot on hilly minor roads. I have had this duo and travelled Scotland for the past four years and has never let me down. I am no speed freak and travel at safe speeds with the Lunar. I have always arrived safe and only used the 4wd on muddy sites.When towing the Suzuki uses 2wd as normal with an average fuel economy of 29/30mpg. I think this is a great duo outfit. On one occasion another caravanner took photos of my outfit and took the wheel for a test drive. He then purchased a similar outfit for himself as he was very impressed.
