Every car manufacturer has its own iconic model. America loves Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco. The latter, by the way, has recently been successfully revived. Suzuki has this compact Jimny SUV.

Suzuki has finally redesigned its Suzuki Jimny SUV. For a new SUV, you will have to pay at least 21 thousand dollars

Jimny is in demand, and in some regions it is a real excitement. In Indonesia, for example, interest in Jimny is so high that even used SUVs are asked for $ 37,500. The portal reports. At the same time, it is noted that local dealers managed to collect a waiting list that stretched for 20 years.

This, of course, is difficult to imagine. And the specific reasons are not named. Although the incredible line for the novelty was associated with the fact that Suzuki underestimated the demand for new Jimmy in Indonesia. The portal writes that, perhaps, the automaker will have to ramp up production of Jimny by connecting new enterprises (India). This information has not yet been officially confirmed.

The waiting list for a new production car, as a rule, rarely exceeds 12 months.

But in Europe we see a completely different picture. The traditional SUV was banned here due to stricter environmental regulations. For the model to remain in this market, the Japanese had to convert it into a 2-seater commercial vehicle. This segment has less stringent CO2 emissions requirements.
