I have a question in relation to the new Suzuki Jimny. From what I gather it is not being sold in Ireland for emissions reasons. However, if you were to import one from the UK and pay VRT etc would you be able to get Irish insurance? Is it road legal and all that?

Getting insurance will probably be slightly tricky just because there aren’t many Jimnys on the ground here, so it’s not a well-known model for Irish insurers from an actuarial point of view. Then again, it’s no GTI so it shouldn’t be too bad. As for road legality, it’s fine — the Jimny was homologated for Europe, so it’s perfectly legal here.
