It’s one of the most iconic little 4×4’s ever created, and holds a special place in many a 4×4 enthusiasts’ heart. It was known as the “little 4×4 that could” and it is more than worthy of that moniker. Well-known for being able to traverse the kind of terrain that kills bigger 4×4’s or at the very least gets them stuck, and having owned one many years ago, I can personally attest to that fact. All it needs is a good set of mud-terrain tyres and this little fella will pretty much take you anywhere. Testament to the tenacity and popularity of this little 4×4 is the fact that used units in good condition still command very decent second-hand value prices. The new one was launched here in 2013, and some thought it was priced a tad too expensive for a small 4×4, and thus Suzuki Malaysia Automobile (SMA) recently responded positively in this respect.
“In light of recent hikes in the cost of living, we’ve decided to revise the pricing of the Jimny as a gesture to our customers. In situations like these, ‘every little saving helps’ and we hope that this will somewhat ease the financial strain on new car buyers,” explained Mr. Keiichi Suzuki, Managing Director of Suzuki Malaysia Automobile Sdn Bhd.
The new pricing means the Jimny can now be purchased for RM3,400 less than its original 2013 selling price (on-the-road price without insurance). The 1.3L Jimny is available at RM86,488 (AT) or RM81,488 (MT) in Peninsular Malaysia. East Malaysians also benefit from the price reduction: RM90,488 (AT) or RM85,488 (MT) in Sabah and RM91,488 (AT) or RM86,488 (MT) in Sarawak.
The newly launched Jimny is a genuine cross-country vehicle that meets daily city maneuvering with ease and dominates in off-road encounters. Incorporating subtle changes with its practical design, the 2013 Jimny remains true to its predecessors yet comes with a fresh new face and muscular appearance that make it suitable for both work and play.
During the announcement of Jimny’s price revision, Suzuki also revealed that its award-winning Swift Sport will soon feature the Auto-Cruise function before the second quarter of this year, providing efficient, comfortable and easy driving with greater fuel-saving. Yet another consideration that makes increasing living costs a bit more bearable!
