Suzuki Auto Philippines’ Jimny remains an unstoppable mini 4×4 with loads of retro charm, sturdy body frame and higher driving position. And despite being a niche player, it remains one of the Japanese automaker’s best sellers.

But as Suzuki Auto is set to launch the all-new Celerio and a facelifted Swift, the company recently announced Jimny’s price adjustments.

The base Jimny, the GL 1.5 MT variant, just increased by P75,000. The following are the new prices:

Jimny GL (Monotone) 5MT, now P1.17 million (from P1.095 million)

Jimny GL (Monotone) 4AT, now P1.217 million (from P1.155 million)

Jimny GLX (Monotone) 4AT (monotone), now P1.275 million (from P1.205 million)

Jimny GLX (2 Tone) 4AT, now P1.285 million (from P1.215 million)

The current Jimny sports a distinctive and iconic front grille with vertical openings, clamshell bonnet, large square back door, angled bumper edges that increase clearance at the wheels for assured climbing over obstacles. These molded black material safeguards the body from stone chips and scratches.

Inside, every detail is thoughtfully and attractively crafted to support serious off-roading including horizontal lines defined by the instrument panel, and vertical lines characterized by the meter cluster and center console panels. These design cues help the driver recognize the angle of the vehicle in rough instantaneous terrain.

The current Jimny is powered by a 101-horsepower, 1.5-liter (K15B) gasoline engine that is lightweight, compact and fuel-efficient. It delivers a strong torque at all rpm (maximum of 130 Nm at 4,400 rpm), with ample torque at low revolutions maintaining off-road driving performance as well as enhanced fuel efficiency.

To support strong traction on uneven terrain, the current Jimny is equipped with robust long-stroke 3-link suspension that is teamed with rigid full wheel axles on both front and rear. Its part-time 4WD allows switching between 4WD, for optimal off-road performance with 4WD low range transfer gear providing extra torque in the 4L mode for rough terrain.

And with an ample approach angle of 37 degrees, ramp breakover angle of 28 degrees and departure angle of 49 degrees, one is assured that the current Jimny can climb over obstacles and steep hills without scraping its bumpers or underbody.
