Midrand - The wait is almost over, with the new Jimny set to go on sale in South Africa at the beginning of November, and Suzuki SA is giving fans a taste of the newcomer at the Festival of Motoring at Kyalami this weekend (Aug 31 - Sep 2).
The hotly anticipated 4x4 was revealed to local media on Thursday, along with some local details including estimated pricing:
|1.5 4x4 GA manual:||R265 000|
|1.5 4x4 GLX manual||R300 000|
|1.5 4x4 GLX auto||R320 000|
As you can see, the previous 1.3-litre petrol engine makes way for a new and more powerful 1.5-litre unit, still normally aspirated and credited with 75kW and 130Nm. You can have it mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, or - if you opt for the GLX grade - a four-speed automatic gearbox.
