Suzuki is heading to the Tokyo Motor Show with a brace of Jimny Concepts; the Jimny Survive and Jimny Sierra Pickup.
The new Suzuki Jimny is proving to be a much bigger success than Suzuki could have imagined, with its back to basics off-road abilities appealing to a market besieged by over-complicated soft-roaders.
So appealing is the new Jimny that even if you rock up to a Suzuki dealer in the UK with a bag full of cash you will still be left waiting for a year before you’ll get you car.
So you might have thought Suzuki would concentrate on finding a way to increase production to address waiting lists rather than offering up more versions of the Jimny. But you’d be wrong.
Heading for the Tokyo Motor Show next month is a pair of Jimny Concepts – the Jimny Survive and the Jimny Sierra.
The Jimny Survive is built to tackle even more extreme off-roading than the regular Jimny, with raised ride height, knobbly tyres, big steel front bumper with winch and tow hooks, smatterings of diamond plate and roll cage.
The Jimny Sierra is a Jimny Pick-up complete with flatbed where the back seats were, retro grille with tow hooks mounted below, bigger bumpers, raised ride height, LED roof light bar and some proper old school fake wood on the flanks.
We have no idea if these concepts will turn in to production Jimnys, but if they do you’ll have to wait a while.
