Suzuki Jimny 0021

Here’s an unusual move. Suzuki Malaysia Automobile (SMA) has slashed prices of the Suzuki Jimny 4X4, which was launched here in November 2013. The reduction is RM3,400 from the launch price.

With the downward revision, the CBU from Japan 1.3 litre Jimny is now priced from RM81,488 for the manual and RM86,488 for the automatic. In Sabah, prices are RM85,488 and RM90,488, while in Sarawak, the Jimny goes for RM86,488 and RM91,488. Prices are on-the-road excluding insurance.

“In light of recent hikes in the cost of living, we’ve decided to revise the pricing of the Jimny as a gesture to our customers. In situations like these, ‘every little saving helps’ and we hope that this will somewhat ease the financial strain on new car buyers,” explained Keiichi Suzuki, MD of SMA.

On another note, SMA revealed that the Suzuki Swift Sport will soon come with cruise control, and the spec update will happen before the second quarter of this year. Read our SSS launch report, which has a huge live gallery of this enthusiast’s favourite.
