This makes it one of the most expensive Jimny’s in the world. The modified Suzuki Jimny convertible takes design inspiration from Great Wall Motor’s Tank 300 SUV. It features a revised front fascia with a new grille and all-LED headlamps with LED DRLs. The SUV also gets rugged wheel arches with chunky tyres and a spare wheel at the rear with rectangular LED taillamps.

Mechanically, however, this modified version of the Jimny remains identical to its standard counterparts. Globally, the Suzuki Jimny is powered by a 100 bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine, paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. It also gets a 4×4 drivetrain with a low-range transfer case. The Suzuki Jimny is expected to be launched in India next year, albeit in a stretched five-door avatar.
