The Suzuki Jimny has proven to be such a runaway success the company is reportedly considering wagon and ute versions of the pint-sized four-wheel-drive.
However, CarAdvice understands the Japanese car maker is considering expanding the line-up to include a five-door wagon and a ute – both on a new, extended wheelbase.
Suzuki Australia boss Michael Pachota declined to comment on the speculation.
It is unclear whether the utility version would be a two-door, a four-door, or both. But CarAdvice had our resident photoshop whiz re-imagine both options for us, and add a wagon for good measure.
To be clear, none of the above models have been confirmed and these images come from our imagination.
However, due to the recent success of the Jimny, it is understood Suzuki is considering an expansion of the line-up.
Given that it took 10 years for Suzuki to introduce the current-generation Jimny (the 2018 model was the first complete overhaul since the previous model arrived in 1998), it’s unlikely a Jimny wagon and ute will be in showrooms anytime soon.
CarAdvice understands Suzuki is yet to decide on a model expansion; if it were to proceed, each model could take years to develop.
Even if they were engineered concurrently, they would likely be two to three years away at the earliest.
Unless of course, Suzuki has already decided to proceed but has managed to keep a lid on it.
Fingers crossed Suzuki thinks one or both of these options are good ideas.
Let us know in the comments below if Suzuki should build a four-door wagon version of the Jimny, or a ute – or both.
