Suzuki Australia has officially introduced the Jimny XL, an exciting addition to its renowned 4x4 lineup. The Jimny XL builds on the legacy of the original Jimny, known for its exceptional off-road capabilities and iconic design. The launch of the Jimny XL aims to solidify Suzuki's reputation as a leader in off-road vehicles, leveraging its global influence in the 4x4 segment.

The new Jimny XL retains the same performance and engine specifications as the current 3 Door variant. However, it boasts significant upgrades in standard features, enhancing both functionality and style. Key improvements include a 9-inch multimedia touchscreen compatible with DAB radio, Apple CarPlay® (wireless), and Android Auto™, rear parking sensors, and Adaptive Cruise Control for the automatic transmission model.

The vehicle also introduces rear passenger doors, a new grey metallic painted front grille with chrome accents, and the advanced Dual Camera Brake Support System (DSBS II). The Jimny XL offers a variety of color options, including six exterior colors: Arctic White, Chiffon Ivory with Black Roof, Bluish Black Pearl, Granite Grey (new), Sizzling Red with Black Roof (new), and Jungle Green.

Suzuki has set the recommended retail pricing at $34,990 for the Manual Transmission model and $36,490 for the Automatic. Michael Pachota, General Manager of Automobile at Suzuki Australia, expressed enthusiasm for the Jimny XL's potential to reignite Australians' love for the Suzuki classic. He emphasized the Jimny's global heritage, its blend of iconic design and unparalleled off-road performance, and the excitement surrounding the launch of this new variant.

The addition of the Jimny XL to the lineup is expected to offer a blend of traditional off-road prowess with enhanced space and versatility, catering to the needs of adventure enthusiasts.
