Following the huge success of the Suzuki Jimny in South Africa, the need for a vehicle that sits between the GLX and GA models was born. Bringing forth the option of an automatic transmission for the mid-range buyer alongside many luxurious features that come with the GLX, we are proud to announce the Jimny GL, a new variant that is now available on the Suzuki Bassonia showroom floor.
At a starting price of only R336 900, the Suzuki GL is an SUV that is just as capable off-road as it is on the busy city streets. Speaking with many customers that wanted more amenities than the GA provides but didn’t have the budget to purchase the GLX, Suzuki Auto South Africa soon discovered a gap in the market and responded to the demand by introducing the GL range.
Coming with off-road-ready alloy wheels and an alloy-equipped full-size spare wheel, the Suzuki GL is incredibly impressive when viewed from the outside. Available with a choice of all body colours and the two-tone paint option, customers can style their GL exactly how they want it. Once you venture inside the Suzuki GL, the needs of the mid-range consumer are met entirely. To begin, power steering, electric windows, electrically adjustable mirrors and airconditioning come standard. Furthermore, you can choose between a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission.
Under the hood, it is clear that the GL is a full-blooded 4x4. The 1.5-litre petrol engine is the same across all Jimny models and it is as breathtaking as ever here. Packing a notable punch, the engine features variable valve timing and multi-point injection that delivers 75 kW at 6 000 rpm and 130 Nm of torque at 4 000 rpm. There is no doubt that anyone that takes control of the Suzuki Jimny GL will fall in love at first drive.
