Probably one of the hottest cars that ever rounded up the internet last year, the all-new fourth-generation Suzuki Jimny became one of our most watched-out cars. That’s enough reason as to why we fought our way hard to make it to the first row during its public exhibit at the 2018 Philippine International Motor Show.
UPDATE: 2019 Suzuki Jimny makes Philippine debut, starts at P975K
Unfortunately, the Jimny’s PIMS display was nothing but a mere showcase. Everyone thought it was coming but the smell of disappointment spread after Suzuki Philippines announced a delay in bringing it here. If we remember it correctly, Suzuki PH said that it wouldn’t be here until the third quarter of 2019, long enough for us to drool over custom renderings on the internet.
However, we’ve got something big for the fans; it's coming earlier than planned. The 2019 Suzuki Jimny is no longer a mirage on the horizon, as confirmed by Suzuki PH's invite on its official launch on March 8, 2019. We already said yes to the invitation. In fact, we already got our suits on.
The invite mentioned “experiencing” Suzuki’s All-Grip Pro technology with the all-new Jimny. Could this mean that the mini 4x4 SUV is available to be driven on that day? We mean, we already got to drive it in November, but it was just a brief time with it. It would be nice to drive and show it off on public roads, you think? Right now, we don’t have much information apart from the fact that the Jimny’s arriving off the actual schedule, and that there are manual and automatic variants, which were both present during the test drive in November 2018.
So, how much will it really retail here? Remember the P1.1-million price mark that was announced at 2018 PIMS? That was just an estimation; Suzuki PH will reveal the range’s official price list on March 8, 2019. Time to mark your calendars and ready your piggy banks, folks. Additional information will be released soon.
