Whether you like it or not, customizing vehicles is a thing for car nuts. It personalizes the car further, even if it’s just stickers that say “Nuff Said” or extensive custom kits that make the car look like something else. Take the Suzuki-turned-Land-Rover as an example. Somewhere in India, some guy shapeshifted his Vitara Brezza into an Evoque. It was quite impressive, unlike some "Suzuki Discovery" that we see here in the Philippines.
In Japan, one of the prominent names when it comes to vehicle customization is Liberty Walk. We’ve seen them make a kei car look like a Nissan GT-R before, which is quite appalling for some but we’re amazed by it. Now, the company is back at it again, but this time, it has done something that’s pretty obvious – turning a 2019 Suzuki Jimny into a mini Mercedes G-Class.
If you’re having a hard time imagining the similarities between the two, here’s the Mercedes G-Class that the company fitted with kits, side-by-side with the similarly-customized Jimny:
The similarities between these two cars are uncanny, right? In fact, these two cars are so much alike, you can probably play a bit of spot-the-difference in the photo above.
From the round headlamps to the explicit fender flares, Liberty Walk has done a great job in recreating the German boxy SUV over the Japanese mini off-roader. This didn’t come as a surprise, though. The Jimny has this coming as a lot of people has likened the mini SUV to the German nameplate ever since it was launched last month.
So, what do you think about the customized Jimny? Do you like it? Or do you prefer its stock look?
