Suzuki has revealed the three-door Jimny special limited edition in Australia. The Jimny Heritage Edition is the new special edition, of which only 300 units will be produced. Suzuki has introduced the model with a few cosmetic improvements, including the 'Heritage' decals above the rear wheel arches. The Jimny also receives Red mud flaps with a White Suzuki emblem and is available in four colour choices: White, Bluish Black Pearl, Jungle Green, and Medium Grey. There are no changes in terms of power specifications. The Suzuki Jimny Heritage edition is powered by the same 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine that puts out 104bhp and 134Nm. According to Suzuki, the Heritage edition uses 5-speed manual transmission. A 4-speed torque converter automatic gearbox is still an option for the standard variant. The Suzuki AllGrip Pro four-wheel drive system is also included in the Heritage model.
Features-wise, the Jimny Heritage edition is similar to the standard model. It features a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, LED projector headlights, a reverse camera, and climate control. In India, the carmaker will launch the Jimny in a new 5-door version. Bookings for the new Jimny in India are currently underway at Rs 25,000. The carmaker claims that the response, so far, has been overwhelming. According to reports, the automaker may increase the new Jimny's manufacturing capacity to ensure that the waiting period remains between 3 and 9 months.
