I’ve just returned from an exciting Suzuki launch at Redstar Raceway in eastern Gauteng. This tyre-shredding day celebrated the arrival of the Japanese brand’s “Boosterjet” turbocharger technology in the agile Swift Sport and popular Vitara models.
The iconic spiel
Ford Mustang, Ferrari F40, Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. All of these are legends in their own right and will get you plenty of attention but if you need a little more – right now I guarantee it – just get yourself the brand-new Suzuki Jimny. Our test car’s black stickers on crazy lumo-green-yellow paint can probably help as well.
Looking for a small seven-seater car, with ample leg- and head room, to expand your travel business or to zip along the Garden Route with the family? Well, Suzuki has just launched their solution to this and it is not going to cost you an arm or a leg.
Welkom aan almal, by die splinternuwe Suzuki Jimny en ‘n ellelange waglys. Waarom is die splinternuwe Jimny so popular? Wel, ons het die Jimny vir ‘n maand lank getoets, spesifiek om hierdie punt te bewys.
Smag na die Dzire
Goedkoop, stewig, gemaklik en ekonomies. Hierdie is die vier woorde, wat die nuwe Suzuki Dzire beklemtoon. Reeds op die bekendstelling sowat twee maande gelede het ons tot hierdie besef gekom.
New Jimny surpasses expectation
Twenty years since the third generation of the much-loved Suzuki Jimny was launched globally, the small 4×4 made quite a stir in the market. While the Jimny has only been on South-African roads since 2008, it became well known as the small 4×4 with an abundance of character and the ability to show larger 4×4 drivers a thing or two in rough terrain.
Die goedkoop wenner
Onlangs genooi na die nuwe Suzuki Swift se bekendstelling in Durban, was ons aangenaam verras met die nuwe Suzuki Swift. Steeds bekend as een van die voorlopers in die goedkoper voertuig mark, bied die Swift nou meer teen ‘n beter prys. Met ‘n prys onder die R190 000 merk, is die Swift ‘n goeie alternatief vir alle ouderdoms groepe.
Liked the previous Suzuki Jimny? Well, you are going to love this!
Since its inception in the 1970 with the Suzuki LJ10 (have a look at our NamWheels Suzuki Jimny Lineage article: https://www.namwheels.com/lineage-suzuki-jimny/) the Jimny has been a success from the word “GO”! However, as Jimny sales figures rocketed exponentially, the brand has not seen a new Jimny in nearly 20 years. Well, the wait is over and it was certainly worth it!
With the new Jimny said to go on sale in November 2018, here is a look back at the car that crept into many hearts; including ours.
Loved by many, the Suzuki Jimny has a very rich history in southern Africa. Known for its small appearance, the Jimny has become known as the nimble 4×4 that will get you anywhere and even put larger, more expensive SUV’s to shame. It quickly became Suzuki’s stable model in southern Africa, and with good reason.
On Wednesday morning at the crack of dawn, Suzuki South Africa waved off a group of intrepid explorers on an epic 4 000 km road trip to Mount Elgon in Kenya.
