The people have spoken, and the message could not be clearer: more Suzuki Jimnys, please! To appease the insatiable appetite for its rugged little 4×4, Suzuki Australia is adding a new variant to the Jimny line: the Jimny Lite, which arrives in August.
The Jimny Lite is a full-on Jimny, minus a few tidbits here and there. As the name implies, it’s slightly lighter on options and features. For example, it’ll only be available with a manual transmission in contrast to the automatic option of the Jimny. It’ll also roll on standard 15-inch steel wheels instead of alloys. (Rockin’ steelies? Heck yeah!)
On the outside, the Jimny Lite further visually deviates from the Jimny courtesy of its plastic textured side mirror covers and halogen (not LED) projector headlights. On the inside, the Jimny Lite gets an old-school in-dash audio system with standard Bluetooth connectivity rather than the Jimny’s touchscreen infotainment system with navigation. More information for the Jimny Lite, such as pricing, will arrive by August.
