Suzuki Jimny Lite will be sold in Australia from August 2021. Performance and engine specs are unchanged to the current Jimny but it will be available in manual transmission only.

The Jimny Lite will ride on standard 15-inch steel wheels, plastic textured side mirror covers, Halogen projector headlights without standard foglights are the only other notable exterior differences to the current Suzuki Jimny.

The Infotainment system is rather basic. The Jimny Lite has in-dash radio / CD player and standard Bluetooth.

Air conditioning is standard fitment with manually operated climate control.
Michael Pachota, the general manager, automotive said: “We’re pleased to be able to add another variant in the line-up and continue to grow our Jimny community with this incremental supply opportunity.”

“We will also maintain the fair allocation process based on customer orders with a queue system as we have done with the current Jimny in 2021, making sure the next order in the queue gets the next car to hit Australian soil, every time” said Pachota.

Jimny Lite suggested retail pricing won’t be announced until it goes on sale on 1st August 2021. We will provide that in a follow up news story, and later a full test drive report.

A dedicated page on with more information on the Lite will be live from July 1st, 2021.
