As you know, the 4th-gen Suzuki Jimny became an instant blockbuster and remains to be one of the most popular off-roaders in select markets around the world. I say select because Jimmy is still not officially available in some of the important markets. It is still not available in North America, for example, and in the UK, it is only available in the used market (new Jimny sales in the UK were discontinued in mid-2020 for some reason; a new cargo version is available though). The off-road enthusiasts in India also wanted the Jimny so bad, but instead of the 3-door version, Suzuki’s India subsidiary Maruti Suzuki is launching a 5-door version of Jimny soon this year.
The Australian market is an interesting one because you get plenty of options in all price categories when it comes to SUVs and utes (a term used for pickup trucks in Australia and NZ). And of course, the Jimny remains to be at the top of Australians’ shortlist when they’re out in the market for an off-roader.
Which is why Suzuki is offering the Jimny Heritage Edition for Australians, limited to 300 units. The special edition is reportedly priced at AUD 33,490, plus $695 if you fancy Bluish Black or Jungle Green or Medium Grey paint. Yes, only the white paint is free, apparently.
The Jimny Heritage Edition is all about those retro decals that start from the side of the vehicle and cover the tailgate as well. You also get red mud flaps and a Jimny Heritage-branded cargo tray. The rest of the things continue to be carried over from the regular Jimny, such as LED projector headlights, 15-inch alloy wheels, electric ORVMs, a 7-inch touchscreen, auto AC, and so on and so forth.
No mechanical changes. The Jimny Heritage Edition packs the same 75 kW (102 metric hp) 1.5L 4-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission and 4WD system.
