No, really. The all-new Suzuki Jimny appeared as roller skates in this quirky new ad by Suzuki Australia.
It’s safe to say that the new ad captures the essence of the Jimny - including its compact size and off-road capabilities. Functional lights further add to the realism of these little roller skates.
The all-new fourth generation Suzuki Jimny was launched in June 2018 as a retro, yet tiny little off-roader. Engine choices include a 660cc turbocharged three-cylinder engine or a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated engine, both of which can be mated to a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic.
Our neighbours in Thailand and Singapore have recently received the all-new Jimny, though prices are prohibitively expensive. Those living in Thailand have to fork out at least 1.55 million Thai baht to get the Jimny, while our friends over in Singapore have to pay SGD 114,100 for one.
Considering that Suzuki Malaysia has ceased to exist, the all-new Jimny won’t be arriving here via the official route. Ambitious grey importers may bring a couple in, as they did with other quirky Japanese models.
