Suzuki Jimny Black Bison Is Another Baby G-Class Look-Alike

Tuners are making the most of the new Suzuki Jimny’s Mercedes G-Class-inspired looks. The latest is Wald International, who has just unveiled its Black Bison kit for the tiny off-roader.

The Japanese tuning company appears to have taken inspiration from the rugged G500 4×4² when designing its upgrade package for the Jimny. Consequently, it has been adorned with eye-catching exterior parts and sits on a set of huge off-road wheels and tires.

The Jimny pictured has been painted in matte black and the front fascia immediately gives off G-Class vibes with the round headlights, upright grille, and LED daytime running lights. Sure, it’s not going to fool people in traffic into thinking this is a legitimate G-Class, but it’s certainly a valiant attempt. An aggressive hood and roof-mounted LEDs are also part of the pack.

Viewed from the sides, the G-Class traits are also obvious, particularly due to the flared wheel arches. At the rear, the bumper has been beefed up and the spare wheel has been removed.

Wald International has clearly altered the Jimny’s suspension system to bump up the ground clearance, but the tiny 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine remains stock. That means it delivers 99 hp and 95 lb-ft (130 Nm) of torque which, in this day and age, make it seem underpowered. Then again, the Jimny was never about straight line speed but rather rock-crawling ability, so its fans won’t be deterred.

This isn’t the first Jimny we’ve seen modified into a G-Class lookalike. In early January, Liberty Walk unveiled its bodykit for the Jimny that makes it look like the offspring of the iconic Mercedes off-roader.
