Tough luck for prospective Jimny owners. Suzuki Philippines has just raised the prices of its immensely popular mini SUV, and the jump in cost is a considerable one.

The base Jimny 1.5 GL MT variant has gone up to P1,055,000 from P975,000, while the Jimny 1.5 GL AT now carries a P1,115,000 price tag instead of P1,035,000. Lastly, the top-of-the-line Jimny 1.5 GLX AT costs P1,165,000 (add an extra P10,000 for the two-tone exterior) instead of just P1,085,000.

To sum it up, every Jimny unit has gone up by P80,000 overall. Here’s are the new prices in list form:

2020 Suzuki Jimny

  1. Suzuki Jimny 1.5 GL MT – P1,055,000
  2. Suzuki Jimny 1.5 GL AT – P1,115,000
  3. Suzuki Jimny 1.5 GLX AT – P1,165,000

No changes have been made to the vehicle. The 4x4 Suzuki still comes with the same 1.5-liter K15B four-cylinder gasoline engine capable of 100hp and 130Nm of torque, paired with either a four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual transmission. Only top-spec Jimny 1.5 GLX AT units feature niceties like an automatic A/C system, cruise control, and a four-speaker sound setup, while all units still get a nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system and dual front airbags.

Again, that’s a significant jump up in price. The brand is, however, introducing a much more affordable mini SUV in the form of the upcoming Suzuki S-Presso, so if a similar look is all you’re after it might be worth considering.
