Wald Suzuki Jimny Sierra Kicks Cute to the Curb

One of the words you most often hear when describing the Suzuki Jimny is “cute.”

Japan’s Wald International appears to have taken that as a challenge, coming up with a Jimny Sierra that bucks the idea of cute and goes straight for manly instead. Dubbed the Jimny Black Bison edition, Wald’s Suzuki may have taken a few notes from the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, dressing up the Jimny and giving it a touch of an edge.

Using a Sierra variant, Wald redesigned the front bumper, which connects with the over fenders—as do the rear fenders and bumper. Wald then added a new grille, headlight covers, and a more aerodynamic hood, as well as a few additional air intakes.

There’s no word on the engine, so most likely Wald kept either the 660cc turbocharged inline-3 or the 1.5-litre inline-4. More aggressive rims with orange accents were added and then shod in knobbier tires. The whole thing was then given a darker color theme, with a charcoal grey body and black accents.

The colour scheme gives this 4X4 a dressed up look, almost as if it just came off the back trails, jumped in the shower, and put on a tux for the opera. Whatever vibe Wald was looking to create with this custom, it’s very apparent that “cute” wasn’t one of the criteria.
