That’s some houding right there. After being nominated in the category for some years running, Suzuki has finally taken the honour. With funky yet functional design, some authentic 4X4 cred, you can look cool while hopping, as well as getting some off-road lifestyle going.
Speaking after receiving news on the award, Toshihiro Suzuki, Representative Director and President of Suzuki Motor Corporation, said: “We at Suzuki are greatly honoured to receive this award. The Jimny is the one-and-only compact, authentic off-roader, and we have kept true to this concept for almost 50 years.
“It now has many fans around the world, who enjoy its excellent performance and one-of-a-kind functional design, both on- and off-road. We accept this award on behalf of our fans.”
In South Africa, Suzuki has recently announced that it will increase its order volumes to help shorten the ever-growing waiting list for the new Jimny.
