Who needs friends, anyway?
There's just no two ways about it: The Suzuki Jimny, as great an off-roader and as fun a car it is, isn't a very practical vehicle. A large part of this is due to its cramped rear, from where
Mini off-roading done right
We've been stuck at home for almost five months. Five months, people. Chances are, many of us have run out of hobbies to try out to keep ourselves busy over that period, too. If, however, you've yet to delve into
That’s...a lot
When the all-new Suzuki Jimny was launched early last year, many salivated over the mini off-roader's macho new design, improved comfort, and relatively well-rounded overall package. We even chose the vehicle as our Car of the Year for
Some subtle touches that add a bit more pizzazz to the tiny 4x4
One of the best traits of the Suzuki Jimny is its compatibility with aftermarket goodies. There's a wide range of modifications that can be made to this quirky little 4x4, and we were lucky enough to see a few examples firsthand
It only has a 1.0-liter engine and can’t go off-road, but we like it
One man's trash is another man's treasure, right? Well, this restomodded Maruti Suzuki Omni from the guys at Holy Shift Garage is a prime example of that.The Omni-also known as the Carry in other markets-is an 800cc
Does this count as off-roading?
Ply these streets long enough and, chances are, you've come across fellow motorists backtrack from missed turns in the most facepalm-worthy ways possible.Maybe you've seen a car reverse into oncoming traffic to catch their exit on the North
The brand just turned a century old
Looms. Suzuki started out manufacturing looms. Just like many other carmakers, the Japanese brand first made a name for itself producing something other than, well, cars.The Suzuki Loom Manufacturing Company was founded by Michio Suzuki on March 15, 1920-meaning, yes,
It’s all sorts of crazy but also a whole lot of fun
For us, the Suzuki Jimny never ceases to impress.Yes, it's a quirky little vehicle that definitely turns heads when it drives past. But it was only recently that Top Gear PH associate off-road editor Beeboy Bargas got to take
But why?
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,
This model has a serious off-road pedigree
Around 15 years ago, for the second article I wrote for Top Gear PH, I had the opportunity to test-drive the manual variant of the previous-generation Suzuki Jimny. I remember saying it was quite fun to drive on the highway-
Can’t have too many tailpipes
You've heard of trypophobia, that skin-crawling fear of clusters of holes, right? Well, after coming across Sense Brand's aftermarket escapades at this year's Tokyo Auto Salon (TAS), we're coining a new term somewhat similar to it: exhaustophobia-
Do you agree with our choice?
Alright, so the Suzuki Jimny is our reigning Car of the Year. The Japanese carmaker's tiny off-roader beat out some pretty stiff competition, including but not limited to the all-new Toyota Supra, Kia Stinger, and all-new Mazda 3.
Can you guess their inspiration?
Where Suzuki has taken a decidedly modern approach with its Jimny 'Sierra Marine Style' concept for the 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon, aftermarket specialist DAMD is going the other way, opting to style the popular off-roader after two classic 4x4s. Look at
We just can’t get enough of this little off-roader
The Tokyo Auto Salon is the aftermarket gift that keeps on giving.Earlier this month, we found out that Honda will be showcasing the S2000 20th Anniversary Prototype and a celebratory version of the EK9 Civic at this year's show. Now,
Cruising at 260kph
The German Autobahn is what fast drivers dream of: a seemingly endless smooth road with lax speed limits and disciplined drivers who keep the left lane vacant because, well, 'there's always someone going faster than you on the Autobahn.' This Subaru
We give recognition to the best cars and manufacturers of 2019
As the year draws to a close, Top Gear Philippines once again makes its picks for the top cars and manufacturers of 2019.This year, the top honor for the Top Gear Philippines Car of the Year goes to the Suzuki Jimny.
The show’s practically a haven for custom Jimnys
You might have read about the 200hp Suzuki Jimny at the 2019 Manila Auto Salon and Sport Truck Show in one of our previous stories-our editor-in-chief Paulo Subido himself said that this tiny 4x4 is the "modifier's platform
Yup, you read that right
The 2019 Manila Auto Salon and Sport Truck Show is now in full swing, and it seems that the all-new Suzuki Jimny is the modifier's platform of choice at the event. No surprise there, as the buzz surrounding this vehicle
The Carabinieri’s new ride is here
Italian criminals, beware: The Carabinieri has a new weapon in its armory you'll be simply powerless to resist. Yep, after years of deploying quick cars to catch the wrongdoers of this world (well, Italy), it's gone down an unexpected route.
