The Suzuki Jimny is a subcompact SUV and continues to be one of the most sought after in its segment. Not just here in the Philippines, but on a global scale having already sold millions and still counting. Its popularity can only be attributed to two things. First is its attractive retro-styling trait which Suzuki calls, “Heritage Styling” that pays homage to the first and second generation Jimny. The other reason is its off road capability, utilizing a rigid ladder-frame suspension with solid differentials, making it a true four-wheeler.
Here in the Philippines, the Suzuki Jimny gets its power from a 1.5-liter, inline-4 gasoline engine capable of producing up to 101 horsepower and 130 Nm of torque. Transmission options are either a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic transmission. The Jimny is available in four variants namely, GL MT, GL AT, GLX AT (Monotone), GLX AT (Two-tone)
The fourth and current generation Suzuki Jimny was initially released in Japan in July of 2018, as other Asian countries followed suit. But due to unforeseen delays in logistics caused by an overwhelming global demand, Suzuki Philippines wasn’t able to launch the Jimny.
It wasn’t until 2019 when Suzuki Philippines was finally able to formally launch the JImny to the Philippine market and it has been selling like crazy since then.
