In what has been a big week for car maker Suzuki, comes confirmation both the 5-door version of its hugely popular Jimny, and the new Fronx, also an SUV, are both headed to Australia.
Building on the strong Jimny nameplate and heritage, the 5-door solidifies Suzuki’s presence as a true 4×4 off road performer, with the upsized version scoring a longer wheelbase and two extra doors.
The vehicle performance and engine specifications remain unchanged to the current Jimny 3-door variant, although there have been upgrades made to some interior specifications, including more internal space.
“Jimny has built an absolute cult following in Australia and will only continue to grow with a new breed of followers that need the extra space,” Suzuki Australia general manager automobile, Michael Pachota said.
Joining the big boy Jimny will be the Fronx, a new SUV with a coupe style that’s strong and fluid, and an easy-to-drive compact body.
The bold and thick front grille and the front and rear styling emphasises expansion towards the sides express powerfulness and strong presence of an SUV.
The dynamic coupe style that slopes towards the rear emphasizes a flowing and stretchy proportion. In addition to the high-quality interior which makes efficient use of space, it has adopted advanced equipment.
This includes a 360 view camera, head up display, wireless charger and rear-seat air conditioning vents, for convenience and comfort.
“With the launch of the all new Fronx, we’re combining unique sporty styling with SUV heritage,” Pachota said. “This vehicle will also open the doors to younger buyers looking to upgrade from a smaller hatchback to an SUV.”
Further details regarding specification, features, and pricing on both vehicles will be released at a later date.
