Nearly two years following the Suzuki Jimny’s comeback to the Malaysian market, Naza Eastern Motors Sdn Bhd has released the Jimny Rhino edition. This limited-edition model intends to revive consumer interest in Suzuki’s famous Jimny and give buyers a unique ownership experience.
A Jimny Lifestyle Drive was held to mark the debut of this new edition. Mohamad Irwan Shahril, Chief Operating Officer of Naza Eastern Motors, and more than 30 Jimny owners participated in a convoy drive from the Suzuki Cars Petaling Jaya Showroom to the Malaysia 4WD Training & Experience Centre (M4TREC) in Semenyih where the Jimny Rhino Edition was unveiled. This was followed by an off-road demonstration and exercise by Suzuki Jimny instructors.
The “Real Offroader” and rhino graphic decals running across the hood and profile in red, grey, and black are the main attraction. The Suzuki Heritage grille, which complements the chrome side mirrors, and the front and side bumper under garnish are examples of nostalgic elements. The rear spare tyre cover with the Rhino logo and the red mud flaps with white ‘Jimny’ writing are other throwback design elements. Additional weather protection is provided in the form of front and rear differential guards as well as rain and wind deflectors.
“Suzuki Cars Malaysia is proud to offer these enhancements, which improve the overall driving experience and give the Jimny Rhino Edition a touch of individuality,” Irwan remarked.
All current Jimny owners will be able to purchase the RM 15,000 Jimny Rhino Kit version, which comes with the same enhancements as the new variant.
“This programme demonstrates our dedication to enhancing the ownership experience and giving customers the chance to customise their cars the way they choose. Suzuki Cars Malaysia aims to strengthen its brand loyalty and customer retention by providing exceptional experiences for Jimny owners. As the official distributor for Suzuki cars in Malaysia, we are committed to delivering the highest quality vehicles and services, ensuring customer satisfaction, and building a reputable brand presence in the market,” he added.
The Suzuki Jimny All Grip was originally introduced on the market by Naza Eastern Motors in July 2021 with a limited palette of colours. With only 30 units being produced, the Jimny Rhino edition is now readily accessible in pure pearl white and features the recognisable Rhino logomark that honours the history of the Suzuki SJ series and the second generation Jimny, which made its debut 41 years ago.
The Jimny Rhino Edition is priced at RM174,900 before insurance and is now available for viewing at Suzuki Cars Petaling Jaya Showroom.
