SuzukiPH reveals All-New Jimny pricing and variants
Suzuki Philippines after a long wait, finally revealed the price and list of variants for the All-New Jimny All-Grip Pro at the BGC Amphitheater in Bonifacio Global City, The Fort, Taguig City last Friday, March 8.
The latest Jimny retains it’s ladder frame, with it’s long-stroke 3-link suspension with front and rear rigid full wheel axles. It has a 37 degree approach angle, 49 degree departure angle and a 28 degree break over angle.
Just like the previous generation, it’s equipped with part-time high and low range 4WD, able to easily switch between 2WD and 4WD. Combining hill hold control, hill descent control and brake limited slip-differential (LSD) traction control, you get better speed and control in rough conditions.
The All-New Jimny has a compact square body which allows for good maneuverability and all around visibility, on and off road. Its advantage is it’s size over larger off road vehicles. It makes short work of mud, sand and steep slippery slopes where heavier vehicles tend to get stuck because of its a light weight.
It rolls on dark metallic gray 15” wheels, big black bumpers, wheel flarings and round retro style headlamps hint at it’s capablities. With black as the dominant theme for the interior, you get switches and dials in metallic colors for easy identification. The instrument panel and surrounding areas have scratch and stain-resistant grained finish while the steering wheel is leather wrapped. The entertainment system has a 9” touchscreen with GPS and an offroad audio guide. This latest Jimny has 53 liters more luggage space than the last generation.
It’s powered by the K15B 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder that puts out more power and torque than the previous Jimny. Quieter, with improved NVH, it has a lightweight resin belt cover and fuel tank. It also has an optimized intake system with long nozzle injectors to enhance fuel efficiency.
The Jimny All-Grip Pro also features Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology (TECT), which disperses collision energy across the vehicle frame to mitigate damage to the vehicle and passengers.
To reduce driver stress and fatigue, the front seat cushion frames are 70mm wider and 50mm taller for better shock absorption. Noise inside the cabin is reduced by strategic placement of sound-deadening material throughout the body. And for longer dependable life, zinc-coated steel is applied more extensively with more effective floor undercoating and coatings at panel edges to protect it from corrosion caused by water crossings.
“Our determination to provide simple, straightforward, and functional vehicles such as the Suzuki Jimny All-Grip Pro underscores our commitment to continuously provide innovation that Filipinos can rely on. Every detail of the fourth-generation Jimny—from the body to the engine—is designed to deliver the maximum performance and durability required by serious off-road travelers. With this newest addition to our lineup of vehicles, more Filipinos can now enjoy the Suzuki Way of Life as they explore more challenges and adventures,” said SPH Director and Automobile Division General Manager Keiichi Suzuki.
