JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Suzuki Australia is rumored to be launching a cheap version of the Jimny Lite or Jimny in August. The Jimny Lite was deliberately imported from Japan to cut the pivot time.
Reported from CarAdvice, the cheap version of the Jimny has fewer features than the Jimny Sierra or Jimny kei cars sold in Japan.
From the front view, the difference is immediately apparent from the absence fog lamp or fog lights. The projector headlights have also been replaced with multi-reflector halogens.
