Visually, the tiny body-on-frame SUV receives updated headlight clusters, front bumper with larger air intake, and radiator grille.
The robust and dated interior remains and in certain markets, the base models are equipped with manual windows and two airbags.
The lacklustre four-cylinder, 1.3 litre petrol engine also remains untouched and still produces 83bhp (85PS/63kW) and 110Nm (81lb-ft) of torque at 4,100rpm. The aging unit is still mated to either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic gearbox.
Initially driving the rear wheels, power can be sent to all four wheels at the push of a dash-mounted button.
The facelifted Jimny will make its debut at the Paris Motor Show in Autumn and go on sale shortly after. Pricing and specification information will be released closer to its launch.
The Jimny is a direct successor of the Samurai that was sold throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
