Angry bird grille is quite famous among Jeep and Thar owners, but this Suzuki Jimny shows looks uber cool with a similar unit
The Suzuki Jimny is selling like hotcakes around the world. People are buying the car for its off-road capabilities, funky looks, compact dimensions, affordable price tag, and the immense room it offers for modifications. We have talked about the fastest Jimny we came across and the one that was a doppelganger to the legendary G-Wagen. In search of some more interesting modifications for the Jimny, we came across one with a Jeep-like angry-bird grille. The car belongs to YouTuber Frenz Graw’s dad. In the video, the dad-son duo can be seen explaining the changes and modifications that the car has received till date.
The video starts with the modifications which their car features on the front face. It gets a custom metal bumper that has been finished in Line-X coating and gives the car a better approach angle. It also gets a Jeep-like Angry Bird-type grille. However, this Jeep inspired grille has only 5-slats, in comparison to the 7 seen on the Jeep. The bumper of this Jimny also features headlamp washers and a set of auxiliary lamps.
Moving on to the sides, the car appears to be taller than a stock Jimny. That extra height is courtesy of Bilstein suspension and a lift kit. The tyres on this rig have also been upgraded with MT-spec rubber. The owner of the car has added faux hinges to the doors to give that extra ruggedness to the overall look of the car. At the rear, there’s an off-road spec bumper as well. The spare wheel mounting assembly has also been changed to avoid tyre’s contact with the bumper.
The angry bird grille on this Suzuki Jimny gives it all the aggression that it needs.
Although not much has been changed on the performance part of the car, but it gets an HKS end can. The stock Suzuki Jimny is a fairly capable vehicle with the 1.5L petrol engine, which produces 102 PS and 130 Nm as its rated peak output. It is offered with 2 gearbox options – 5-speed manual and 4-speed AT. A low-range transfer case is standard across the range that channels the power to all 4 wheels of the cars. It also gets solid axles at both the ends that gives it enough flex to deal with the trickiest of the tracks.
