The Suzuki Jimny is a small body-on-frame SUV that has been in production for more than 15 years now. It is offered here in two variants - JLX 1.3 Manual and JLX 1.3 Automatic priced at RM81,388 and RM86,388 respectively. Due to its unique nature and size the 2015 Suzuki Jimny cannot be considered as a direct competitor for any car, but if we compare it in terms of price then several B-segment SUVs like the Honda HR-V and Ford Ecosport comes close although they dont target the same audience as Suzuki's unique offering.
Under the hood of the Malaysian-spec Suzuki Jimny is a naturally aspirated 1.3-litre DOHC four-pot that develops 84hp at 6,000rpm and 110Nm of torque at 4,100rpm. A five-speed manual and four-speed torque converter type automatic transmissions are available for customers to choose from. Power is sent to the ground via a part-time four wheel drive system that allows drivers to shift between 2WD and 4WD mode at speeds up to 100km/h.
