Now little Jimny's gone…
… he disappeared one day. With no test cars available during lockdown, Charlie Flindt ponders the fate of The Field’s favourite little four-by-four

When the all-new version was launched in 2019, we greeted it with much enthusiasm: a great little country car had been updated brilliantly. But we spoke too soon. No sooner had it hit the showrooms than Suzuki announced that the great green authoritarian fist of environmentalism had crushed the Jimny’s bright future.
