Suzuki is winding down sales of SUVs on the European market, and a “farewell” special series of such cars was released for this event. The new model was named Suzuki Jimny Horizon: it was produced in a limited edition of 900 units, which differ from the standard version of the model in darkened decor and price. It is worth noting that Suzuki Jimny will not leave Europe forever, as hinted by the slogan “I’ll be back”.

The “farewell” special series was presented in Germany – there it is available only in some Suzuki dealerships at a price starting from 32,340 euros (a little more than three million rubles at today’s exchange rate). For comparison: the Germans can still buy a regular Jimny for 29,490 (2.8 million rubles).

Since 2020, the Suzuki Jimny has been sold in Europe as a commercial vehicle, not a passenger vehicle, due to stricter environmental standards, which are more lenient for commercial vehicles. At the same time, the SUV not only changed its status, but also lost the sofa in the second row – it has two front seats and an additional 33 liters to the trunk volume, which is 830 liters. Another difference from the passenger version is a mesh partition that prevents cargo from getting from the luggage compartment into the cabin.

The model is presented on the European market with a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine producing 102 horsepower and 130 Nm of torque. The gearbox is a five-speed manual without an alternative. Jimny has solid axles with three-lever mounts and coil springs, as well as a part-time all-wheel drive with a low range.

The model will be able to return to Europe when Suzuki electrifies its powertrain.
