Suzuki Plans To Introduce A Jimny Lite in Australia That Is More Affordably Priced.


Recent rumours claim that Suzuki plans to release a new, entry-level Jimny model in the Australian market under the name “Jimny Lite.” The entry-level pricing of the SUV will drop with the new trim, which will also aid in reducing the waiting period, which can currently last up to a year. The new “Light” trim of the Suzuki Jimny is probably going to have fewer amenities. Exterior upgrades include halogen headlamps, no fog lamps, and plastic-patterned wing mirror covers. The SUV will now have 15-inch steel wheels on its side profile rather than attractive alloy rims.

The inside of the next Jimny Lite will have a basic radio and CD player in place of the 7-inch touchscreen entertainment system. Yet the design of the cabin won’t alter. The Suzuki Jimny’s revised trim is still powered by the same 1.5-liter K15B four-pot petrol engine, which has a maximum output of 130 Nm and 102 PS. Only a 5-speed MT will be available with the Light trim. If customers desire a 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission, they must purchase the more expensive variant. The Maruti Ciaz, XL6, Ertiga, and Vitara Brezza all have the same engine.

Michael Pachota, managing director of Suzuki Automobiles Australia, was quoted as saying: “We’re giving Australians more Jimnys because that’s what people want! In view of the model’s consistently increasing demand, we are happy to be able to add another model to the portfolio and to make use of this new supply potential to grow our Jimny community.

Prices for Jimny Lite in Australia will be released by the manufacturer on August 1, 2021. The new Suzuki trim will be produced by companies based in Japan. The Suzuki Jimny 5-door, which is being built by the carmaker in the meantime, is scheduled to make its international premiere next year with the upgraded Jimny 3-door variant. In the following months, the Jimny will also make its debut in Indian markets. It is believed that the smart hybrid technology developed by the company will be used in the Suzuki Jimny created for the Indian market. Together with vehicles like the impending 5-door Mahindra Thar, it will compete in its industry.
