This rhino-themed compact off-roader will be produced in a limited run of just 30 units and will cost 174,900 ringgit or IDR 565 million.
The Rhino Edition features Pure Pearl White paintwork and exclusive styling touches such as red, gray and black decals on the hood and sides.
The words “True Offroader” and the rhino graphic give a nod to four decades ago when the rhino logo was used on the second generation Suzuki Jimny.
As a reminder, the use of the rhino logo came after UK importers were given Jimny units with plastic spare wheel covers bearing the image of a rhino at the 1982 Birmingham Motor Show.
The retailer found the horned animal attractive and used the newly drawn logo as a sign of toughness.
According to Paultan, in addition to the decal, the rhino can also be seen as a badge on the back door and rear spare tire cover of this limited edition Jimny.
Other Rhino Edition features include a traditional grille (no vertical slats), chrome side mirrors, red mudflaps with “Jimny” script, front and rear differential protection and wind deflectors.
According to Naza Eastern Motors, owners of the old Jimny can enjoy the same upgrades as the new variant by purchasing the Jimny Rhino Kit, valued at 15,000 ringgit or 48 million rupees, from the company's dealership in Petaling Jaya.
Some Jimny Rhino Edition items are also offered through an accessory pack sold by the Company.
The Rhino Edition features the same powertrain as the regular Jimny, with a 1.5-litre VVT four-cylinder naturally aspirated K15B petrol engine producing 100hp at 6,000rpm and 130Nm of torque at 4,000rpm.
The engine is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission and part-time all-wheel drive with a low-range transfer case.
Some features are the same as the standard model, such as automatic LED headlights, 15-inch alloy wheels, 7-inch touchscreen head unit with Apple CarPlay, dual speakers, single-zone climate control, dual airbags, ABS, brake assist, stability control, began to help. Hill control and down hill.
