Launched in Australia in January 2019, the Jimny has received instant appeal here – as it has globally.
The Jimny continues to embrace the core character of a small, lightweight 4WD vehicle following nearly 50 years of worldwide popularity – but now offers so much more.
With a choice between manual and auto, and modern features like cruise control, high beam assist, daytime running lights (DRLs) and multimedia satellite navigation featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; this vehicle is equally at home in the city - handling tight streets and small parking spots with ease.
Safety has been stepped up too, with front dual, side and curtain airbags, Dual Sensor Brake Support and Electronic Stability Control (ESP).
Under the new on-trend striking exterior; the Jimny reveals a ladder frame body, true 4WD system and proven off road ability for those who want to play and the myriad of youtuve videos already attests to that.
There's a reason that it has such an admired heritage, and a legend that is set to continue. Ironically however, the true 4WD which can go just about anywhere – can’t get near a dealership!
As we predicted the demand which was seen overseas, has been repeated here – and supply simply can’t meet the demand. Whist the factory are ramping up production, the queue for the three times nominated Word Car of the Year finalist, isn’t likely to reduce anytime soon. The one we thing we do expect, is that once they start being seen on the road, and appealing to more than those who knew of it – the interest will grow even further.
So whilst the wait for the Suzuki Jimny is frustrating – it’s because there is nothing like if it for looks, capability and price. So, we recommend registering your interest, experiencing the Jimny at a dealership; and getting in that queue. As we all know, time eventually flies by, and before you know it, your Jimny will be here – but if you wait longer; that queue is likely to get longer still!
