Suzuki Jimny gets a facelift image

The Japanese based automaker Suzuki has recently announced that the Jimny model has received a facelift.

According to the car manufacturer, even if the Jimny will get a new generation in 2013, Suzuki has chosen to update it this year by using a discreet facelift.

The Suzuki Jimny facelift is now getting a new front bumper, a fresh set of fog lamps placed in a different position, a front grille painted in the same color as the rest of the body, an air intake fitted on the engine hood, a redesigned rear bumper, modified taillights, a fresh set of alloy wheels and some new materials used in the cabin, along with new fabric.

Suzuki says that the facelifted version of the Jimny is still getting the same 1.3 liter engine, which is developing a total output of 85 horsepower, mated to a five-speed transmission. The maximum output is reached at 6,000 rpm while the peak torque of 110 Nm is available at 4,100 rpm.

The Suzuki Jimny in this configuration can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 14.1 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 140 km/h. The small off-roader is burning an average of 7.1 liters of fuel every 100 km and it’s emitting 162 g/km of CO2 (Euro 5).
