It already has the retro looks, however, this throwback costume-wearing Suzuki Jimny Heritage Edition is ready for Australia and registrations of interest are now being taken. Priced from $33,490 plus on-road costs, we would expect the second-hand market value to eclipse $60,000 AUD with numbers limited to just 300 cars. Regardless, that’s a heck of a lot cheaper than this $100,000 AUD ‘Baby G’ Jimny that’s currently for sale.
“Strictly 300 units in total of this retro legend will be available. These vehicles will sell out quickly. With swift delivery to follow, I encourage all serious buyers to jump in fast,” said Michael Pachota, Suzuki Australia’s general manager.
It’s true that Suzuki is already having a hard time fulfilling orders – as customer demand for the $33,490 AUD plus on-road costs car reaches a cult-like audience – but the heritage-stickered model will only build on that.
The Suzuki Jimny Heritage Edition will be offered in the highest GLX grade that includes such features as a 7.0-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It will be a manual-only car (there’s currently a pause on automatic Jimny models in Australia) and no power has been added to the 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine. It still produces a measly 75kW @ 6,000 RPM and 130 NM @ 4,000 RPM.
So what makes the Heritage Edition different? Well, it starts with the obvious, a graphics package on the side of the car that reminds us of those found on a 1980s Nissan 280ZX. We love the addition of red front and rear mud flaps with Suzuki embossing alongside the heritage decals and a special ‘heritage cargo tray’.
Expressions of interest are now being taken for the Suzuki Jimny Heritage Edition before the first cars arrive in showrooms in April 2023. Maybe the hardest decision in the process is choosing what colour you like most. We’re leaning towards classic white, but the Jungle Green, Medium Grey and Bluish Black Pearl are tempting enough.
