2019 Suzuki Jimny by Wald International
The Suzuki Jimny is a little retro-styled SUV that is much adored by enthusiasts. Like it or hate it, there’s no ignoring this. Despite the model changes over the years, Suzuki has retained the same old-school looks for the Jimny, and it still looks cute as a button. However, some aftermarket companies have worked on it to reveal the other, tougher side of the Jimny. Most of them provide body kits, but this particular version feels like way more than just a kit thanks to Wald International. This aftermarket manufacturer has come up with a Back Bison Edition and it looks menacing, to say the least.
Someone Turned the Suzuki Jimny into a Smaller Mercedes-AMG G63 and You Have to See It
If you talk about boxy vehicles, the legendary Mercedes-Benz G-Class is the one to top that list. The other little boxy SUV that’s been winning hearts all over the world for its quirky, boxy looks is the Suzuki Jimny. A lot of parallels have been drawn between the two for their stark similarities. This one aftermarket company from Dubai decided to see what the final product would look like if they were blended into one, and the result will make you go awwww.
The Suzuki Jimny Survive Is Japan’s take on the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk
The new Suzuki Jimny may be boxier than its predecessor, but it’s definitely a cute looking SUV. This doesn’t mean that it’s not ready for the great outdoors and Suzuki just created a hardcore concept version to prove just that. Called Jimny Survive, it turns the cute, keicar-like Jimny into a mini Jeep Renegade Trailhawk.
2019 Suzuki Jimny Black Bison Edition by Wald International
The new Suzuki Jimny became an instant icon, an instant conversation starter, and an instant problem for Suzuki. The Japanese company simply cannot cope with the demand. The production facilities are working at their absolute limits, but there is no way for Suzuki to produce enough to meet the demand. That’s a problem.
Nevertheless, those produced are already being trashed somewhere on some off-road terrain. Some of them, however, managed to reach the garages of the most recognizable tuners out there. First, we were treated to that awesome Liberty Walk modification that basically turned the Suzuki Jimny into a baby Mercedes-Benz G-Class. At least in the virtual world, but I believe one can order it right now. On the other hand, we got an all-new look at another modified Suzuki Jimny. This one is done up by Wald International, a Japanese company known for its Black Bison Edition line of modifications. That’s exactly what the new Jimny received - and it’s awesome.
What if there was a Suzuki Jimny 4x4² ?
There are plenty of manufacturers these days that milk all their models as much as possible by offering them in different flavors and variations. Mercedes is a great example here, as the Three-Pointed Star created the G-Class 4x4², a low volume exclusive model that caused a huge stir when it was first unveiled (initially as a 6x6 pickup). So, what would it be like if Suzuki did the same thing with the Jimny? Well, I took to Photoshop to find out....
2019 Vitara Facelift Looks Aggressive In These New Images
It feels as though the Vitara just grew a little more mature. Suzuki refreshed the Vitara earlier this year, and has now added a few more pictures to its official album. It has been one of Suzuki’s most consistent products in recent times. I must admit that the 2019 Vitara looks great with the new nose-job. However, the highlight is the addition of the new engine.

Crash Test Video: Euro NCAP Gives the 2019 Suzuki Jimny a 3-Star Rating
The Jimny has been the talk of the town for as long as we can remember. While every manufacturer focused on crossovers, Suzuki decided to refresh the rugged-looking Jimny, and the audience welcomed it with open arms. However, the little off-roader that could has failed the Euro NCAP crash test, managing to score just three stars.
Ever since it became a subcompact crossover, the Suzuki Vitara has managed to outsell almost everything in its class. I cannot say that Suzuki hit the jackpot with it, but it sure got close. Really close. Now in its third year of production, the car has received a mid-cycle facelift that gives it exterior features and a more refined cabin. It Completely ditched the most popular engine from the lineup, though. The 1.6-liter, naturally aspirated engine was replaced with the Boosterjet engine. It is a 1.0-liter that’s good for 109 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. Obviously, not the most powerful engine out there, but it is expected to outsell the other one in the line up (the 1.4-liter, 138 horsepower engine) by quite a margin.
2019 Suzuki Jimny
The fourth-generation Suzuki Jimny has arrived, and as usual with the small off-roader, it’s packing plenty of might and muscle in such a small frame. The baby off-road machine gets plenty of new features, a lot of which have been thrown in to get fans of the model new reasons to get excited about what it has to offer. And it has a lot to offer. It may not be as powerful as other off-roaders in the market, but there’s something to be said for a Suzuki that has lasted this long and has gained somewhat of a cult following of its own. The fourth-gen Jimny is here, and it couldn’t have arrived soon enough.
2019 Suzuki Jimny
Most Americans miss out on some really interesting things. Fine, missing out on Kinder eggs is one thing, but missing out on some amazing cars is where we should draw the line.
Take for example the Suzuki Jimny - a pocket-size off-roader capable of treading where only a few would dare. After three generations and more than 2.25 million units sold since 1970, Suzuki finally revealed the first official photos of the fourth generation Jimny.
And, that only happened after some customers captured photos of the new Jimny at a Suzuki private event and published them online. An official live presentation is scheduled for the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October.
All-new Jimny to hit the market in 2019:
Jimny is not a new name in the automotive industry. The fourth generation of the car has been spotted testing for almost a year now, and that itself is a testament to the fact that people have accepted the unorthodox, boxy styling of the car. What’s new in the fourth-gen? Is it a better-buy now? Continue reading to know more.
With the Suzuki Jimny being a bit long in the tooth and the crossover and SUV market booming in recent years, the Japanese carmaker decided to bring a funky-looking supermini crossover to the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Called iM-4, the concept was shown alongside the iK-2 supermini, both featuring a new Suzuki platform.
Unlike the lionhearted Jimny, whose current generation is heading toward its 20th birthday in 2018, the iM-4 Concept is a lot less rugged- and more urban-looking, not to mention that it features five doors instead of just three. With a "love it or hate it" exterior design that harks back to Kei cars like the Suzuki Fronte Coupé and the first-generation Cervo, the model could make quite a splash in the segment if it gets produced with a similar look.
Updated 03/03/2015: Suzuki iM-4 concept car made its world debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It features a new-generation platform and a SHVS mild hybrid system.

We have known for quite some time now that Suzuki plans to expand its lineup with a new crossover model that will take on the Nissan Juke and other compact crossovers. Few details are known on this new model, but the company unveiled a new iV-4 concept car at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show that will preview Suzuki’s new SUV lineup.
The new iV-4 concept will be developed around a new theme called "Grab your field" and it will will retain the clam-shell bonnet and five-bar front grille that have become a hallmark of its SUVs.
As for the concept’s name, "i" stands for "individuality", "V" for "vehicle", and "4" for "4 wheel-drive" as it features Suzuki’s next ALLGRIP four-wheel drive system.
Updated 09/10/2013: This review has been updated with the official details, images and specs.

We have all had bad experiences at car dealerships and car repair shops. Heck, being a former service manager, I have had to attempt to repair these bad situations at times. Typically, when customer service turns sour, you simply express your anger, go home, call the corporate office, and eventually get a resolution. Well, apparently this is not the way the customer service flowchart goes in some countries.
In a Nissan and Suzuki dealership in what looks to be Russia, if I am seeing the sign correctly, a customer decides to take part in creating his own resolution for a customer service issue.
According to the story that we read, this customer took his Suzuki SUV, which he bought new, back to the dealership to have a faulty shock replaced. The dealership refused to replace the shock under warranty, which really isn’t that uncommon, and from there the customer bypassed calling customer service, and chose to take his frustrations out on the dealership, by way of ramming his Grand Vitara through the dealership’s window.
That’s not where it stops, this driver then smashes up a few brand new floor model vehicles, using his SUV as a battering ram, then eventually disappears from the screen – likely to do more damage on the other side of the dealership.
I used to have pretty nasty road rage, but mine mostly consisted of laying on my horn and flashing the occasional one-fingered salute. This guy really needs to get his anger issues under control. I hope his car insurance company is prepared to pay out to fix his now-smashed SUV, or their office may receive the same “redecorating.”
Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face, sheesh. Check out the above video to see all of the craziness, pay close attention to the brave guy that goes knocking on this lunatic’s window at the 1:57 mark. What’s he gonna do, ask him for some Grey Poupon?
When considering motorcycles, Suzuki is likely a brand that comes to mind. Their cars, on the other hand, nearly go unnoticed unless you are looking for specifically cheap transportation. They typically only account for a fraction of a percent of U.S. auto sales, but that fraction is a tight and very loyal market. Well, it looks like they are trying to dig themselves out of obscurity by adding high-end features to their vehicles.
Starting in the 2013 model year, nearly every Suzuki car, truck, and SUV will include a Garmin stereo system that will also include Pandora radio. With the internet taking over everything nowadays, it’s only expected that internet radio would make its way into more cars – heck, some cars now have a hard drive bigger than my desktop PC, seriously…
Pandora works a lot like satellite radio, as it is not broadcasted from terrestrial towers, but rather streamed through the internet. You can personalize your own station too, so there is no need to swap the station every time something you can’t stand comes blasting through the speakers.
There is no receiver or anything like that for Pandora radio, so this is really not costing Suzuki much, meaning the cost to you would be minimal, if anything. The Garmin radio connects to an iPhone, per Pandora, and the iPhone in turn receives the Pandora signal, broadcasting it through the radio. It makes us curious because Pandora radio also has an Android app, which means nearly any phone on the market can receive its signal. However, Pandora specifically mentions just the iPhone in its press release.
We are starting to wonder if iPhone and Garmin are maybe up to something, or did the Pandora rep just misspeak. For the sake of all Suzuki buyers that choose to use this service, we hope the latter is the truth. From our research, it looks like Garmin and Suzuki have apps for both Android and iPhone, so it was likely a mistake to just say “iPhone.”
Regardless of its connectivity, this is a step in the right direction towards Suzuki reeling in its direct competitors, Hyundai and Kia.
