Suzuki Jimny 1.3
Light it up
ALTHOUGH our Jimny had mostly been taking it easy in the underground parking lot at our office this month, it really is a bit like the quiet before the storm.
In September the Jimny will compete in the semi-final of the 2017 Bridgestone 4×4 Club Challenge, with crew Tumelo Maketekete and Anthonie Coetzee. This will be a different kind of 4×4 challenge though: it will be a night event, run in complete darkness.
Now, if Tumelo and Athonie had to rely solely on the Jimny’s standard headlights, they may have struggled to get through some of the tough obstacles. Thankfully, the Suzuki is fitted with a Light Force LED light bar that is just about as wide as the Jimny itself: 40 inches of top-quality light bar that turns night into day.
Next month we’ll let you know if the Jimny survived the challenge, and how the light performed.
Good: Fun in the city, the Lightforce LED light Not so good: All the extras have, inevitably, increased consumption
