After offering an exciting preview of the much-awaited 4th generation Jimny at the Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS) last October, Suzuki Philippines (SPH) finally revealed that they will officially launch the latest version of the popular mini-SUV in the country next month.
The Jimny has been loved by customers around the world since the birth of its first model in 1970. The new Jimny carries on the heritage of a small, lightweight authentic off-roader and is a masterpiece of Suzuki 4WD technology.
1st generation (1970)
The first-generation Jimny made its debut as the one-and-only compact 4WD in the minicar segment. With its small but powerful performance, it earned high acclaim not only from professional users but from regular users as well.
2nd generation (1981)
With its solid-square shape and roomy interior, the second-generation was well received by the global market and made it an unprecedented hit. It was popular with both genders and its sharp, stylish design suited both urban and off-road settings.
3rd generation (1998)
The third-generation introduced a higher level of comfort with its smooth aerodynamic body, longer wheelbase and refined rigid suspension. Offering greater stability and manoeuvrability on and off-road, it stayed popular worldwide for 20 years.
There are hints that SPH will be offering a manual transmission variant with a price tag under Php 1 million. Well, let’s keep our fingers crossed.
