The 4th generation of Suzuki Jimny is finally here as the company has launched the vehicle. Let’s take a look at its specifications, price, and features for the local market. Note here that Suzuki has also started taking bookings as well.
According to the details, PakWheels previously reported that the Japanese auto manufacturer is gearing up to launch the 4th generation of Jimny in Pakistan. The wait is over, and we have all the details related to the all-new Suzuki Jimny. Globally, its production started last year as it was first launched in Japan on 5th July 2018. The new generation of Jimny has been completely revamped by the automaker; however, its boxy design language keeps it recognized among others in the market. The company recently released a teaser which highlights the fact that it has the power to reach where no one else can. The 4×4 is back yet again in its next-generation, and this time it’s equipped with so many upgraded features. Suzuki Jimny has always been perceived as an overly priced vehicle in Pakistan as per the features it has on offer. The 3rd generation of Jimny was available in Pakistan at Rs.2,620,000. Note here that Pak Suzuki is only offering one 5-speed manual transmission variant of Jimny in the country. The 4WD vehicle is available for booking at full price, and the customers can visit their nearest authorized dealership of Suzuki for further details. The delivery time of Suzuki Jimny is five months from the date of booking. Note here that Jimny will be imported as a completely built unit (CBU). Pak Suzuki is also importing the base model of 4th generation of Jimny.
Suzuki has brought the all-new 4th generation of Jimny at an introductory price of Rs.3,890,000 in Pakistan. According to the company, this price is valid on limited stock only, which means that its price will be raised very soon. As we know that it’s a CBU unit, several duties and taxes are imposed on the vehicle that plays a vital role in raising its price.

The interior of the 4th generation model is revamped by the manufacturer completely as it has a down to earth design. The black-colored stylish dashboard is simple and straight forward in design. However, the details are exquisitely crafted all around. The cabin is also very spacious as compared to the previous versions of the jeep.

Comfort and Convenience:
Suzuki has improved the comfort level of Jimny to a greater extent in the 4th generation model. The entry and exit for the rear side passengers remain from the passenger’s side through a walk-in mechanism, but it’s much more convenient than ever. The upholstery material used for the seats is good quality fabric which is also black in color.

Since the automaker has specifically made it for off-road traveling, it has several other safety features which include hill-hold control, hill descent control, and brake LSD traction control. Hill Hold Control helps the driver to focus on controlling the acceleration of the vehicle while going up on a steep slope. It prevents the rearward rolling of the vehicle even on a bumpy slope. Similarly, as its name suggests, Hill Descent Control guides you on tricky downward slopes with the help of automatic application of brakes and maintains a fixed speed. The Braking Assist System named as Brake LSD Traction Control helps on slippery surfaces. The system is designed in such a way that in case the diagonal wheels lose their grip with the ground, it applies brakes on the slipping wheels. At the same time, the system redistributes the torque to the other two wheels and helps in escaping from the situation.
