We all know just how good-looking the Suzuki Jimny is. With its retro-inspired exterior and boxy shape, it is perhaps one of the most eye-catching vehicles on the road today. There are even kits for the tiny 4x4 that make it look like a mini Mercedes-Benz G-Class or a Land Rover Defender.
But what if you wanted your Jimny to look like a Suzuki Samurai or first-gen Vitara from yesteryear? Well, Suzuki may just have what you need to further make the retro-looking Jimny look even more retro.
Recently, the automaker released several sets of decals that give the 4x4 a cool yet old-school vibe. Available in four distinct trims, the decals give the Jimny a striking finish, not to mention a throwback-like nod to Jimnys of old.
The first set is called Off-road Style, and it comes with a three-tone black/gray/red stripe combination that is applied on the hood, rocker panels, and underneath the rear window. Meanwhile, a 'Real Offroad' decal on the lower part of the door further gives the Jimny a more rugged appearance.
Next is Heritage Style which appears to be a direct nod to the second-generation Jimny. It gets red and gray body stripes that complement the all-white (or all-black) exterior finish. It also has a neat set of red mudflaps, classic-style 16-inch alloy wheels, and a matching decal finish for the rear spare tire carrier.
For those that prefer their Jimny with a bit more "ruggedness" there's the Survival Style trim. It features a camo-like decal painted in black which gives the Jimny a safari-like look. Paired with a beige exterior, and this 4x4 looks like it's ready to take on African plains.
But perhaps serving as the most retro of all the decals is the Revival Style. Fans of the Suzuki Samurai will immediately notice that it has the familiar design reminiscent of the one seen in the original 4x4 from before. It's placed prominently on the doors, as well as on the spare tire carrier for everyone to see.
Thinking of getting one for your Jimny? Sadly, the decal sets are only available in Japan and it looks like Suzuki has no plans of offering outside the country. Should you happen to be in Japan soon and are thinking of dressing up your Jimny, perhaps it's best to buy one before heading home. Personally, I'd choose the Heritage Style pack.
