Suzuki has released the first images of its upcoming new Jimny 4x4 ... and it looks like an adorably baby-faced take on a mini G-Wagen. Bug-eyed, tiny and boxy, all it needs is the roof off, four ridiculously good-looking male models and some orange mocha frappuccinos.

Where Mercedes' G-Wagen screams "rugged utilitarian gravitas," Suzuki's upcoming two-door Jimny 4WD takes a very similar boxy shape and somehow makes it all about cuteness and fun.

It actually looks, though, like the new Jimny might be a little ripper of a thing in the rough stuff, with a part-time 4WD system and a low range transfer gear to help you crawl through rugged terrain.
There are no motor specs available, but we'd expect something small, simple and frugal to round out a lightweight package we'd expect to be so affordable you could buy a handful for the price of a G-Wagen.
