Someone's already turned the new Jimny into a G-Wagen & Defender
Jimny the cutesy/boxy 4x4 from Suzuki is proving so popular that the demand has started to outstrip supply in certain regions. It's no surprise – the Jimny is a small rugged 4x4 that's affordable, capable and looks great. The boxy styling seems to draw inspiration from 4x4 legends like the Mercedes G-Class and Land Rover Defender, so much that people have begun calling it a 'mini G-class'.
DAMD, a Japanese body kit design and tuner company, decided to capitalise on that 'Little G-Wagen' notion growing around it. And designed two new body-kits for the Jimny, aptly named the 'Little-G' and 'Little-D'. These turn the Jimny into a miniature G-Class and Land Rover Defender respectively, while the Little-G name is quite cute they might want to re-think the 'Little-D name...
The Little-G pack completely overhauls the front fascia with a new bumper, grille, lights and a cheeky DAMD logo in a place where the Mercedes star should be. The fender flairs and the foot-step are more squared to like those of the G-Wagen, and a huge (compared to the stock one) exhaust hanging from the side. At the back much hasn't changed other than the spare wheel cover. The car looks a little hilarious on the huge G-Wage style wheels, but that's just me.
The Little-D changes are a little more subtle but just as substantial, with the new front bumper, grille and light enclosure design and a more bulging bonnet to mimic that of the Defenders. DAMD was quite cheeky here too copying the famous 'DEFENDER' bonnet lettering with their own reading 'Little-D'. The side fenders and step look about the same if not a little enlarged, at the rear the Jimny got a whole new bumper and huge mud-flaps. It's sitting on very Land Rover looking wheels with an oval badge in the centre caps.
