14 years. Yes, 14 years it has been before Suzuki unveiled their 4th generation of their Suzuki line-up which is the Jimny. It was launched earlier today at Suzuki Showroom at Gadong.
The revamped 4th generation Jimny has an overall different feel as compared to the 3rd generation. You can already tell from the exterior feel how the latest Jimny is much more rugged and furthermore, it is ALLGRIP car meaning it’s a 4×4 which will give the drivers the off-road experience.
What caught my eye the most is the look and feel. It doesn’t deviate too much from its corporate identity as you can still tell it’s a Jimny but the facelift makes me more relevant to the current trends globally.
The Suzuki Jimny is suitable for many purposes including outdoor adventure concept. I’m pretty sure this model will be a hit among the young and the not-so young because it appeals to all walks of life.
There’s ample legroom and headroom for the comfort of the passengers and the driver. Back space for luggage is bigger than previous model.
The upgraded Jimny is the first Suzuki’s model in Brunei to be equipped with a newly developed 1.5 liter engine, hence, creates strong torque for powerful off-road performance and delivers high fuel efficiency due to a lightweight compact design.
The safety features are quite enhanced in a way. There is the Hill Hold Control which makes hill starts easier by preventing the car from rolling backward (uuuuu me likes that feature), Hill Descent Control which automatically applies the brake when traveling downhill and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) which detects spillage to give the drivers a peace of mind when driving off-road. Furthermore, the body frame centres on Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) concept, resulting in a structure that efficiently absorbs and disperse energy in the event of a collision.
The prices are quite competitive and reasonable. Maybe even entice you to get one. The units so far are fully booked but members of the public are welcome to view the showroom models until 9th November 2018. There will be refreshments and also limited edition door gifts for those who come today and tomorrow.
Congratulations once again to Boustead Sdn Bhd on the launch of the 4th generation of Jimny. The wait was definitely worth it.
Still maintaining the old look but now with a better facelift and bigger

The all new Suzuki Swift is here in Brunei. Three words to sum up – Fun Compact Hatchback!!
The Suzuki Swift 1.2 L is now available in Boustead Showroom at Beribi and it was good to see Suzuki Swift club members during the launch. As you know, the Suzuki Swift model has been a popular choice here in Brunei so if you are thinking of an upgrade, this is the perfect choice indeed.
Now it also available in dual tone colour – Super Black (Body), Premium Silver (Roof) or Mineral Gray (Body), Super Black (roof), Speedy Blue Metaliic (Body), Premium Silver (roof) or Premium Silver (Body), Super Black (roof). They also have the basic colours for your preference.
Boustead brought in two variants – Suzuki Swift 1.2 GL and the Suzuki Swift 1.2 GLX. There are some differences in the two versions.
The safety features are as follows – 2 airbags (GL version) or 6 airbags (GLX version). Both have Electronic Brake Distribution, Brake Assist and Anti-Lock Braking System.
Here are some of the advanced functions: Meter Cluster, Automatic Air Conditioner Controls and USB Port Accessory Socket.
As compared to the previous model, there is a better headroom at the rear seats, responsive steering, improved luggage space and of course, fuel efficiency.

The event also welcomed esteemed guests from the public and associate companies to the launch.
So the Suzuki Ignis is a huge revamp from the previous model indeed. Many reasons to invest in the latest Suzuki Ignis and I guarantee that it will be a huge hit in Brunei due to its new looks and affordability.
Specs of the Suzuki Ignis:
Ignis is a compact urban runabout with stance and space of a small crossover styling. The Suzuki Ignis is powered by K12M with 1,197 cc displacement, in-line 4-cylinder and 16-valve engine. The multi-point fuel injected power plant has variable value technology and produces 62kW of power at 6,000 rpm and 115 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm.
The model comes in different colour choices, ranging from Single Tone to Dual Tone.
With a ground clearance of 180 mm (7 inches), the new Ignis will be able to tackle difficult roads while the raised driving position will provide great visibility for the the driver.
It has an Android powered panel for your audio needs and the Suzuki model only comes in auto transmission.
All I can say is that Suzuki Ignis has a more vibrant and dynamic feel and it does feel like a mini SUV too. Do drop by at Suzuki Showroom.
According to Lim Jin Lee, Executive Manager of Boustead Sdn Bhd, during the press conference, the Suzuki Ignis will be available something in mid-May. Bookings already can be made through the sales agent at Suzuki showroom. What are you waiting for?
