Visually, the new-gen Suzuki Jimny will come with some heavy design and styling updates, which give the small 4x4 an all-new look. In fact, thanks to its boxy design and square window we can't help but notice how the new Jimny look like a baby version of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Other visual updates for the Jimny include the iconic five-slot grille finished in matte black, a pair of classic round headlamps and individual turn indicators, a black heavy duty front bumper with a wide central airdam and round foglamps on either end. The SUV gets an imposing stance thanks to the boxy wheel arches that house a set of stylish black five-spoke alloy wheels. The black treatment is further extended to the ORVMs, and the roof a nice contrast.
