Suzuki Jimny Malaysia 2013 - Display Only @ DRB-HICOM Autofest, SPICE Penang

The panoramic view of the indoor show of the Autofest, SPCIE Penang

I was at DRB-Hicom Autofest, SPICE (previously known as PISA) Penang last weekend to check specifically the long awaited by Suzuki 4x4 fans, the Suzuki Jimny new JB43 model. The Suzuki Jimny is already a well known amongst the 4x4 enthusiasts. It's a good news for Suzuki 4x4 fans for the dream come true when finally Suzuki Malaysia decided to bring in the little mini 4x4 SUV which go anywhere despite the compactness of the car. It was already proven by the previous models such as SJ410 and SJ413, where the follower of this model is quite huge in Malaysia.  

There is not much to look for for this car other than for "viewing only". I have seen and get to hold the steering of the similar model while in Brunei. Here is my entry about my experience. I am not really sure about the specification of the new Jimny Malaysia 2013, however looking from the exterior, the following specification may the nearest possible match. It's based on the similar model Jimny Sierra 1.3L. Note that, there are two variations of Jimny in Japan which called as Jimny and Jimny Sierra with 660cc Turbo (K6A) and 1300cc (M13A) liquid cooled engine respectively.

The only negative force  (at least for me) is the unconfirmed price around RM90k would be the setback for this 3-door mini 4x4 car to justify the monthly repayment. Nevertheless, the joy of looking at the car and possibly soon to be on the road is great. Anyway, here are some photos of the Suzuki Jimny Malaysia 2013.
