Alongside the sales launch of the new Suzuki Jimny GL in South Africa, the manufacturer has also released a Rhino Edition styling package.

The Rhino Edition styling pack brings back the Rhino logomark that first appeared on the Suzuki SJ-series 40 years ago, and can be had on each Jimny specification.

The launch of the mid-range GL, at a starting price of R336,900, now also brings the Jimny range up to five models.

Rhino Edition

If optioned, the new Rhino Edition styling kit will add the following design elements to the Suzuki Jimny:

  • Exclusive Rhino decals
  • A Rhino-branded soft spare wheel cover
  • The Suzuki Heritage grille
  • Red Suzuki mud flaps
  • Rain and wind deflectors

Accompanying the launch of the Rhino Edition, Suzuki announced it will partner with its parent company and affiliates to assist with rhino conservation across the continent.

Off-road trekking

All versions of the Jimny sport a 1.5-litre petrol engine, which produces 75kW and 130Nm and does 6.3l/100km on a combined fuel consumption.

Meanwhile, Suzuki’s AllGrip system allows the brakes and electronic stability control to operate individually on each wheel of the 4×4 for difficult off-road situations.

With a ground clearance of 210mm, this makes the Jimny a small and nimble car for journeys off the beaten path.

Other off-road features include hill descent control, a three-link suspension system, a ball-screw steering system which allows for direct steering while protecting the driver from sudden jerks from driving over tough terrain, and a low range transfer case.

Additionally, the GL version of the Jimny is equipped with electric windows and side mirrors, alloy wheels with a chrome trim, a multifunction steering wheel, Bluetooth sound system, and remote central locking.

Price

The South African pricing for the Suzuki Jimny GL is as follows:

  • Suzuki Jimny 1.5 GL AllGrip – R336,900
  • Suzuki Jimny 1.5 GL AllGrip Auto – R357,900

The GL includes a 5-year/200,000km warranty and a 4-year/60,000km service plan.
