Take control of the road with ALLGRIP, Suzuki’s four wheel drive technology. With over 50 years of experience, Suzuki have redefined their four wheel drive technology under the ALLGRIP name. ALLGRIP gives you the confidence you need to adventure, be more active and have some freedom - without compromise.
The relative lightweight system means there are minimal changes to fuel economy or engine emissions, providing more driving enjoyment and peace of mind even in adverse road surface conditions - all thanks to added traction and go-anywhere benefits of four wheel drive.
Suzuki's Four Wheel Drive Technology consists of 3 different ALLGRIP systems - AUTO, SELECT and PRO.
You can watch the adjacent video and read about the 3 different systems below.
ALLGRIP AUTO gives the driver peace of mind in everyday driving, especially when driving on slippery roads or snowy surfaces.
With the viscous coupling four-wheel drive system, torque is automatically distributed to the rear wheels, when it detects the front wheel losing grip of the road.
The Grip Control* function ensures a smooth start on roads that are slippery with snow or mud. It quickly applies the brake to any slipping wheels while focusing drive power on the wheels that have grip. This improves escape performance by using traction control to limit the loss of engine torque.
Grip Control activates on slippery surfaces at speeds of less than 18mph
ALLGRIP SELECT provides the inherent values "Fun to drive", "Peace of mind" and "High fuel-efficiency" by allowing the driver to choose from four driving modes (AUTO, SPORT, SNOW, and LOCK).
The electronically controlled four-wheel-drive system with selectable driving mode uses a simple push-and-turn dial so the driver can experience different driving styles depending on the road surfaces or conditions.
The Jimny adapts to any situation with a part time 4WD system with low range transfer gear. When the going gets tough, shift the lever to the 4L mode (4WD- low gear) for maximum torque and better traction on uneven terrain.
