Planning to get yourself a brand new Suzuki Jimny? Prepare to pay a bit more as Suzuki Philippines recently increased the sticker price of the mini 4x4 across the range. In contrast to the minor price increase on the refreshed 2020 Ertiga, the Jimny got a more substantial price hike amounting to PhP 80,000.
Starting with the base GL M/T Monotone, from its original PhP 975,000 retail price, it's now selling for PhP 1,055,000. Meanwhile, the GL A/T Monotone, which used to have a price tag of PhP 1,035,000 is now priced at PhP 1,115,000. As for the GLX variants, the A/T Monotone now comes with a suggested retail price of PhP 1,165,000. Finally, the top-of-the-line Two-Tone version now retails at PhP 1,175,000.
Does the price increase mean that Suzuki made tweaks to the Jimny for 2020? Sadly, that is not the case as Suzuki says the increase is due to global price adjustments. That means the Jimny still comes with the familiar features available since it was launched last year.
The GL variants come with manual airconditioning, halogen multi-reflector headlights and comes with rear parking sensors instead of a reverse camera.
The GLX, on other hand, comes with automatic climate control, adjustable LED headlights and a reverse camera for easier parking. The GLX also comes with a few extras like a chronometer display that features (pitch, roll, barometer, altimeter and compass), cruise control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Both the GL and GLX are powered by a 1.5-liter K15B four-cylinder that delivers 100 PS and 130 Nm of torque. A choice of between a five-speed manual gearbox and a four-speed automatic transmission are available for the Jimny. In addition, all Jimny models come with the 4WD AllGrip Pro system as standard.
