Suzuki will eventually offer a soft-top variant of the new Jimny in international markets and the rendering depicts that perfectly
Suzuki’s Jimny mini off-roader has been on a roll since the official pictures were unveiled. It holds particular interest in India as the Jimny could become the long sought after replacement for the Gypsy. We showed you a conventional four-door digital rendering of the Jimny SUV that might make its way into India.
As the internet is waiting over to see the potential of the new generation Jimny when it goes on sale, renderings have been pouring in from different perspectives and the renowned X-Tomi Design has come up with a convertible one. The Jimny will enter its home market of Japan before entering Europe and other markets early next year.
The three-door compact configuration of the Jimny is the most popular among customers internationally as it is adored for its nimbleness and AWD ability. Suzuki will eventually offer a soft-top variant of the new Jimny and the rendering depicts that perfectly. The hard-top model is obviously compact but the convertible version has a sporty stance and will appeal open the door for good levels of customisation.
The exterior boasts round-shaped headlamps, horizontal grille slats, squared wheel arches, large air intake, multi-spoke alloy wheels, etc. The entire front fascia gets adorned in black casing and the overall design theme has blended well with the convertible configuration.
The five powertrain options in which the regular Jimny will be retailed include a small R06A 0.66-litre engine for Japan, 1.2-litre K12C DualJet and 1.0-litre K10C BoosterJet engines for international markets, and K12B 1.2-litre petrol taken from the Swift and Ignis. With greater off-roading prowess and Suzuki’s AllGrip AWD system, the convertible could use the same 1.5-litre engine as in the high-spec Jimny Sierra variant.
