Simple Sticker Pack Turns Suzuki Jimny Into A Time Machine

The Suzuki Jimny XL Heritage in Australia adds some retro appeal with a simple accessories and decals.

It’s not just a Jimny, it’s a time machine. That’s the tagline for this new limited edition Suzuki Jimny XL Heritage 5-door variant in Australia. You might think this is some fancy factory special, but the list of accessories that make this version stand out is actually pretty short. It’s based on the 5-door Jimny long wheelbase and comes only with a 5-speed manual transmission option. So, what exactly makes it a “limited edition” model?

Well, the main thing that sets it apart is a set of retro decals that wrap around the exterior from the front fenders all around the rear of the car. The stickers feature a Jimny Heritage logo with a rhino icon. Besides that you also get red mudflaps and that’s about all that sets this model apart from a regular Jimny. There was a 3-door Jimny Heritage model and that thing sold out in just 2 days.

Only 500 units are being introduced to the Australian market, but we wouldn’t rule out a third run with an automatic gearbox if demand proves impossible to ignore. The real question is whether markets outside of Australia will take the opportunity to market something similar, after all, the added parts look simple enough to be made in Malaysia.

Other equipment on this variant includes a not-very retro 9″ touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto and ALLGRIP Pro – an advanced all-wheel drive system which switch between 2WD and 4WD through a transfer case. There’s also a Jimny Heritage cargo tray in the back. All this for AU$1,500… many Suzuki Jimny fans will say it’s worth it. Might even add to the car’s collect-ability and resale value.

Power comes from the familiar 1.5L 4-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine and it’s good for 101 hp and 130Nm of torque.

The Suzuki Jimny XL Heritage is available in White, Chiffon Ivory + Bluish Black Pearl, Jungle Green, Bluish Black Pearl and Granite Grey Metallic.
