The new Jimny sparked a “Jimny fever” among compact SUV lovers, with all 90 units allocated for the Thai market being ordered online within six days of launch.
“This month, we will deliver 30 Jimny limited edition SUVs to our Thai buyers, said Wallop Treererkngarm, sales and marketing director of Suzuki Motor (Thailand) Co Ltd, adding that the limited edition was sold out within three hours.
The Jimny Limited Edition comes with the Jimny Box Set and Jimny emblem serial number. This model has been around for 50 yeras and is currently on sale n 44 countries.
“We are confident that the new Jimny will be able to ignite a new trend for small SUVs in Thailand with its compact size and off-road capabilities,” Wallop said.
It comes with a 1.5-litre engine (102hp and 130Nm), 4-speed automatic transmission or 5-speed manual, as well as a 4-wheel-drive system with low transfer gear for difficult off-road conditions. Its narrow turning circle of 9.8 metres makes it easy to drive in tight spaces.
Prices range from Bt1.55 million to Bt1.65 million for manual and automatic transmissions models respectively.
