The Suzuki Jimny was voted the winner in the 2019 World Urban Car of the Year Awards by a panel of 86 judges from 24 countries, including South Africa.
After being nominated every year since the introduction of the World Urban Car of the Year category in the World Car of the Year competition, Suzuki was finally crowned the winner in 2019 with the Suzuki Jimny.
The World Car of the Year Awards introduced a dedicated Urban Car of the Year Award in 2017, and Suzuki has been nominated every year. In 2017 the Suzuki Ignis was nominated, followed by the all-new Suzuki Swift in 2018 and the Jimny in 2019.
“We at Suzuki are greatly honoured to receive this award. The Jimny is the one-and-only compact, authentic off-roader, and we have kept true to this concept for almost 50 years,” said Toshihiro Suzuki, Representative Director and President of Suzuki Motor Corporation.
