The photos you see here of the Suzuki Jimny 5-Door aren’t press pictures that anyone can download online. These are actual images taken of the small SUV in Tanay. Yes, Tanay.

Which means the car has now landed on Philippine soil. In fact, a source has informed us that Suzuki Philippines is scheduled to present this to the media on January 25, 2024.

Is the existing 1.5-liter gasoline engine enough for the added weight? PHOTO FROM SOURCE

Now, while this Jimny has an extra pair of doors and a stretched overall length, it is still equipped with the same 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine (also with 5MT and 4AT) found on the three-door version.

Our source has told us that the Jimny 5-Door will have three variants for our market:

  • GL MT
  • GLX AT Monotone
  • GLX AT Two-Tone

If you’re a regular reader of our website, you should know that we are big Jimny fans over here. So we are as excited as anyone about the official release of this model. Needless to say, we will update you as the launch date nears.
