The Suzuki Jimny is an off-roader that’s not afraid to get its tyres dirty which is why a bakkie variant makes so much sense, sadly this one, dubbed the Jimny Sierra pickup style, was only put together along with two other one-off builds to showcase Suzuki’s design skills at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon.
The Jimny Sierra pickup style takes the form of a single-cab bakkie with ‘Sierra’ branding and a wooden strip along the profile boasting the Suzuki badge beneath a Rhino silhouette. The unique bakkie also comes with a set of retro steel wheels, a colour-coded grille with a redesigned air intake and a more robust front bumper. Suzuki hasn’t given a good view of the rear but we can see a fairly tiny bed with a sports bar hosting four spotlamps.
For those who seek a journey into the unknown lands Suzuki has put together the Jimny Survive which looks suitable to use through severe and extreme conditions. The overlanding build features more robust chequer plate panels on the front bumper and side panels as well as a slightly new grille design with headlamp protectors. It’s also kitted out with an external anti-roll bar which doubles up as a roof rack.
The final build of the trio uses the Swift Sport to create an aggressive hot hatch image. The Swift Sports Yellow Rev features a lowered suspension, front splitter, ‘angry’ headlamp covers and an all-new ‘high chroma yellow pearl’ paintjob together with an eye-catching livery.
