NEW JIMNY ON ITS WAY

Go! Camp & Drive - - NEWS -

The fourth gen­er­a­tion Suzuki Jimny was launched on 18 June in Ja­pan, and yes, it’s def­i­nitely com­ing to South Africa. Ac­cord­ing to Me­gan MacDon­ald, PR man­ager at Suzuki Auto South Africa, Suzuki SA is try­ing to get it on our roads by Christ­mas. The body is squarer than its im­me­di­ate pre­de­ces­sor and looks like the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion Jimny, lo­cally known as the SJ or Sa­mu­rai. In­side, the new Jimny has been spruced up quite a bit with brand-new in­stru­men­ta­tion and a 7” touch screen. The Jimny is pow­ered by a 1.2 ℓ petrol and a 1.0 ℓ tur­bopetrol en­gine, but it’s un­clear whether both will be com­ing to SA. Prices are not avail­able yet, but it stands to rea­son that it should fall some­where be­tween the Ig­nis and the Vi­tara. >
