A $50,000 Suzuki Jimny special edition has just been unveiled in Brazil. However, the off-road upgrade packs are not planned for Australia, as waiting lists for standard vehicles still stretch between six to 12 months locally.
An off-road upgrade kit for the Suzuki Jimny – dubbed Sierra 4Sport – has been unveiled in Brazil.
The pint-size special edition has an astronomical price, however it is not planned for Australia.
Limited to 100 examples, the Suzuki Jimny 4Sport is priced from $R181,990 ($AU50,330) – $R25,000 ($AU6915) more than the standard vehicle in Brazil.
Major differences on the Suzuki Jimny 4Sport include wider wheel arch flares, an air-intake ‘snorkel’ and a set of black 15-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli mud-terrain tyres.
The new equipment isn’t just for show. The snorkel doubles the Suzuki Jimny’s wading depth to 600mm, while the mud-terrain Pirelli tyres aim to provide more grip on loose surfaces than the standard highway-terrain Bridgestones.
Other exterior features such as a roof storage system, ‘rock sliders’, skid plates, ‘4Sport’ and ‘4×4’ badges help to set the limited edition apart from the standard Suzuki Jimny.
Although rock sliders and skid plates are designed to protect the underside of the vehicle, the extra equipment has reduced the Jimny 4Sport’s approach and departure angles from 37 degrees to 31 degrees, and 49 degrees to 40 degrees respectively.
In addition to the exterior changes, the cabin has undergone some minor tweaks, with blue highlights on the Jimny’s gear knob, air vent surrounds, and steering wheel.
The Suzuki Jimny Sierra 4Sport logos are embroidered on the front leather seats, which can also fold flat to create a makeshift bed.
Drive understands the Suzuki Jimny Sierra 4Sport is not coming to Australia, despite the model’s popularity.
Australian Suzuki Jimny buyers are now offered black paint as a $695 optional extra, available on both the Jimny Lite ($28,490 plus on-road costs) and the standard Jimny ($29,990 plus on-road costs).
