The tuning company has developed a special aerodynamic kit, thanks to which the small Japanese SUV Suzuki Jimny becomes a mini-copy of the cult British first-generation Land Rover Defender. The tuner also introduced changes for the interior of the baby Suzuki Jimny.

The small Japanese SUV Suzuki Jimny has repeatedly received various upgrades, after which it looks exactly like the German G-class. Now, the Japanese tuning company Damd has decided to make another, no less legendary, car out of the Suzuki Jimny.

The company has a complete body kit that turns Suzuki’s miniature SUV into a mini-replica of the first-generation British Land Rover Defender. The car received the designation Little D.

The kit includes a false radiator grille, front and rear bumpers, a new hood, mud flaps, five 16-inch Dean Cross Country or APIO Wildboar SR wheels, wheel arches and badges. The badges and inscriptions are made in such a way as to be as similar to the original ones as possible, but instead of the original designations that were used on the British SUV, the inscription “Little D” is used. The company also offers wheel covers in a color matching the color of the vehicle.

The updates only change the look of Jimny. Its standard 1.5-liter engine remains intact. It still produces 100 horsepower (130 Nm) and is mated to a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. Torque is transmitted to all four wheels via Suzuki’s Allgrip Pro AWD system.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the Suzuki Jimny is leaving the European market. In the form in which fans of the brand in Europe know this model, the SUV did not take root in this region. The reason is to be found in the tightened economic norms.
