Launch report: 2018 Suzuki Jimny

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.

Padtoets: 2018 Suzuki 1.2 GL

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.

Johannesburg Festival of Motoring launch report: Suzuki Jimny

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!

Lineage: Suzuki Jimny 

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.

Padtoets: Suzuki Baleno 1.4 GLX (Handrat)

Een Baleno (Bah-leno) asseblief!

Die nuwe Suzuki Baleno het in 2016 op Suid-Afrikaanse grond geland. Ietwat langer (87mm) as die Swift model, val die Baleno dan reg in kompetisie met die Volkswagen Polo, Ford Fiesta, Renualt Clio en Opel Corsa. Dit is ook selfs genoem dat die Baleno dalk die Swift reeks heeltemal mag vervang, maar dis egter net bespiegelings. Die groot vraag dan: Is die Baleno ‘n meetbare kompiteerder in hierdie gewilde mark?
