EVOLUTION OF THE SUZUKI JIMNY
Bassonia Webmaster        
Also called the Jimny 8

The Jimny was first launched in 1970 - that’s longer than South Africa’s had TV.

Let that sink in a little.

1ST GENERATION JIMNY
The Jimny, with its recognisable square profile, has been on the road in some form since before South Africans could watch television. The first model, the LJ10, had many of the characteristics we love in the Jimny today: a rugged attitude, a can-do engine and a shape that stands out from the crowd.

2ND GENERATION JIMNY

The second generation Jimny began production in 1981 with two engine choices: A 550cc or 660cc 3-cylinder.

3RD GENERATION JIMNY
Since 1998 - the year of Titanic and Bill Clinton’s infamous denial of his relations with Monica Lewinsky - the 3rd generation Jimny had been in uninterrupted production with only minor changes until 2018. The third generation Jimny embodied a more modern design but still keeping to its roots as a highly capable off-road vehicle.

20 YEARS LATER - THE BRAND NEW 4TH GENERATION JIMNY
The 4th generation Suzuki Jimny comes with a new 1,5 l engine, ample body angles and ground clearance, ABS with BAS & ESP as well as Hill Hold and Hill Descent Control, 3-link rigid axle suspension with coil springs and so much more. This new Jimny also comes in a wide range of colour choices from Kinetic Yellow, Chiffon Ivory and Jungle Green.
