Suzuki makes minor tweaks to Jimny

16 October 2014

Suzuki has made some subtle upgrades to the legendary Jimny.

Exterior wise it has a new set of 15-inch alloy wheels and two new colours to choose from called Bison Brown and Khaki Pearl Metallic.

On the inside it has a new instrument cluster, upgrades seat upholstery and a new steering wheel design.

The 1,3-litre petrol engine has been carried over and it produces maximum power output of 63 kW at 6 000 r/min, linked to a torque peak of 110 Nm at 4 100 r/min.

The big news is the introduction of an four-speed automatic transmission option for the Jimny.

As with the manual gearbox version, the automatic transmission is still partnered by a transfer case offering low-range operation for almost unstoppable traversability over the roughest and most challenging terrain.

Both the manual and automatic transmission-equipped versions of the Jimny are covered by a three-year/100 000 km warranty, as well as a four-year/60 000 km service plan.

    A 16year old model, essentially unchanged (all SA upgrades were available at it’s international launch) and at twice the price of overseas markets. Makes me very sad to see such an incredible vehicle being so overpriced.

    Pity that they did not a bit more powerful engine especially with the auto box
