As far as these two vehicles are cars the difference is quite big and for that reason the Dacia Duster will give you better feeling of driving.
The maximum speed possible to be reached by the Dacia Duster SUV is greater than of the Suzuki Jimny by 18, which allows the Dacia Duster to overcome faster large distance of highway. The difference at the level of 18 % is little and will not be a very noticable in everyday driving.
Maximal torque RPM
A greater range and a lower number of rotations at which the highest torque is reached determines an engine’s performance. Still, in order to eliminate engines drawbacks like e.g. turbo lug, it is good to analyze a torque performance graph.
The width of the vehicle influences directly on passanger's inner room and stability of driving. The Dacia Duster is 14 % wider in relation to the Suzuki Jimny Standard. It is clearly felt by driver and passenger in front, who have more space for their elbows.
Dacia Duster has 19 % longer wheelbase in comparison to the Suzuki Jimny Standard 1.3 16V 4WD 80HP manual 4x4. A longer wheelbase provides more stable and comfortable ride, especially at higher speeds. It also provides more storage space. But, vehicles having a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter wheelbase.
Ground clearance is the minimum distance between the car body and the road. As far as the two compared vehicles are concerned, it is the Dacia that has 12 % higher ride height in relation to the Suzuki Jimny Standard 1.3 16V 4WD 80HP manual 4x4. This is why the Dacia Duster SUV will cope better when driving over imperfect roads and obstacles in the city.

The Dacia probably will be offering to it's passangers more room for legs.

Number of doors
There’s no question that the five-door Dacia Duster SUV is more usable and if you regularly travel with more than one passenger then you should not have any doubts which one to choose. The biggest advantage of a five-door vehicle is that it’s not only easier for passengers to get into the rear seats but it’s as well easier to place luggage and cargo into the vehicle when the rear seats are folded down. However, three-door cars like the Suzuki Jimny generally look much cooler and for young drivers who rarely have more than one passengers in the car the Suzuki Jimny Standard 1.3 16V 4WD 80HP manual 4x4 might be better one, the more so for being a little bit cheaper than the same model with more doors.
Model release date
Production of the older vehicle commenced 12 years prior to its contender thus man may suspect that this vehicle is equipped with not so advanced parts applied.
