Suzuki Auto South Africa has announced that the Rhino Edition kit has made its way to local dealers. The heritage-inspired package arrives simultaneously with the recently announced mid-tier GL models.
The package was first announced in late 2021. According to Suzuki SA, “The kit resurrects the well-known Jimny Rhino logomark that first appeared on the Suzuki SJ-series exactly 40 years ago. It has since become synonymous with the durability, plucky and go-anywhere nature of the Jimny.”
The kit includes a ‘heritage’ front grille, exclusive” Rhino decals and a Rhino-branded spare wheel cover. Red mud flaps and rain and wind deflectors are included in the package.
As a reminder, the Jimny’s 1.5-litre petrol engine produces 75 kW and 130 Nm of torque. Coupled with the firm’s five-speed manual gearbox, the K15B motor returns a claimed fuel consumption figure of 6.3 L/100 km. The four-speed automatic version has a claimed fuel consumption figure of 6.8 L/100 km.
