There were many people that saw an eerie resemblance with the Mercedes G-Class when the new Suzuki Jimny arrived. With the new styling kit from Japanese tuners DAMD Inc, these people will be justified as the Jimny becomes essentially a mini G63, minus the rumbling V8 of course.
The new styling kit, also known as ‘Little G’, is currently under development but DAMD Inc. says it’ll be ready in 2019. Based on the provided GGI, the transformation of the Jimny includes a new front facia -complete with headlights, grille and bumper-, wider fender flares, a new rear bumper and spare wheel cover, as well as new wheels and tires.
There’s even a new bonnet that follows the same lines with the G-Class. The overall effect makes the Jimny look a lot more like the Geländewagen than we dare to admit but if you’re not a fan, the Japanese tuner has one more option for you.
This is DAMD Inc.’s Suzuki Jimny ‘Little D’ (hey, who are we to judge). If your off-road heart belongs to Land Rover but can’t quite stretch to purchase a Defender, then this might just do the trick.
The recipe is exactly the same with the ‘Little G’: there’s a new front fascia that includes new lights, front grille, bumper and bonnet, together with different-shaped fender flares, mud flaps and a rear bumper that features circular taillights in the same fashion with the British off-road icon. A new set of wheels shod in off-road tires and your new “mini-Defender” is ready for action.
