Suzuki Jimny / Sierra

 

 

Back to the late 80s when life was good Suzuki developed a fun light weight semi rural vehicle called the sierra.

Initially it was built on the subcontinent and was a basic 1 litre 4 spd manual 4x4 work farm whatever truck. Suspension was hard the price low and the quality average.

Even though this vehicle evolved from the earlier Suzuki vehicles it began a new awareness of the light rigid 4x4 vehicle that Suzuki had created. The main point of this vehicle is reliability. Suzuki can hang their hat on that now and the sierra although basic go anywhere was reliable.

During the fuel spikes in 2008/09 this vehicle now called the Jimney had defied market trends and increased sales in Australia in fact at one stage sales had risen 34% within 12 months.

2010 and beyond and the Jimney by Suzuki will alway find a place in the niche 4x4 market.

This vehicle is worth noting for a low depreciation as a used 4x4 compared to many in the market.

Today's standards and market expectations have changed since the 80s and 90s models now the Jimney is manual or Automatic, its priced in a competitive placement$20,000 AUD +

It offers comfort features like Air cond, power steer, Safety has been severely enhanced .

Engine also has been refined from the old 1 litre and 1.3 to the new 62 kw multi point injection 1.3 4 cyl delivering for its size nice torque at 128 Nm.Even towing  at the standard 350 KG un braked is reasonable. Brake it and its 1300 kg now that's not bad.

This is not a sales pitch but in the 20+years I have been involved in 4x4 vehicle this unit has always  shown its qualities. Maybe not my cup of tea but as I have said many time will go up the side of tree if you want it too. For the younger buyers it is easy to see the attraction for this vehicle and the lifestyle it represents. Again well done Suzuki.
