Suzuki has announced that its Jimny small off-roader is coming to Europe as a commercial vehicle.

The model was previously sold as a passenger car in the UK, before being axed due to high CO2 emissions.

The new LCV model is a two-seater, with the car’s back seats removed to create a load bay with a capacity of 833 litres.

There’s a flat floor, and a safety partition is installed to keep cargo out of the cabin.

Power comes from a 1.5-litre, 101hp engine, and the Jimny features part-time four-wheel drive with low range transfer gear.

Driver assistance features include autonomous emergency braking, hill hold and descent control.

UK sale details are yet to be announced.
