New mid-range Suzuki Jimny - SA Pricing & Specifications

Suzuki South Africa has listed the pricing of the mid-range Jimny GL in both manual and automatic specifications.

The new off-roader slots in between the GA and GLX at a starting price of R336,900.

The Jimny GL sees a healthy mix of features that provide more comfort than the entry-level GA that does not have a radio, but less than the GLX to keep it on the more affordable side.

Features

Standard equipment in the new mid-range Suzuki Jimny includes fabric upholstery, a manual airconditioner, electric windows and mirrors, front fog lights, central locking, and 15-inch alloy wheels with a full-size spare wheel.

Infotainment is further taken care of by a Bluetooth-capable radio with steering wheel audio controls.

In the safety department, the entire line-up receives ABS with brake assist, hill hold and descent assist, a pedal release system, and two airbags.

Performance

As with the rest of the Jimny line-up, the new GL is powered by a 1.5-litre, petrol engine that generates 75kW and 130Nm.

Drive is sent to all four wheels through the specially-built AllGrip four-wheel-drive system with a low range transfer case, with the buyer’s choice of either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission.

Combined fuel consumption for the models is rated at 6.3l/100km for the manual and 6.8l/100km for the automatic.

A ground clearance of 210mm, approach angle of 37 degrees, break-over angle of 28 degrees, and departure angle of 49 degrees then make the Jimny one of the most nimble and versatile vehicles in its class, which is a large part of its appeal.

Price

The South African pricing for the Suzuki Jimny line-up is as follows:

  • Suzuki Jimny 1.5 GA AllGrip – R318,900
  • Suzuki Jimny 1.5 GL AllGrip – R336,900
  • Suzuki Jimny 1.5 GLX AllGrip – R356,900
  • Suzuki Jimny 1.5 GL AllGrip Auto – R357,900
  • Suzuki Jimny 1.5 GLX AllGrip Auto – R377,900

Each model is sold with a 5-year/200,000km warranty.

The GA gets a 2-year/30,000km service plan, whereas the GL and GLX come with a 4-year/60,000km service plan.
