Thanks to the unexpected similarity in the exterior of the Suzuki Jimny and the Mercedes G-Wagon, some car modification companies have created customization packages for the former to resemble the latter.
The Suzuki Jimny has attracted plenty of attention from the Indian auto market. Although the Japanese auto manufacturer has no intention of introducing the vehicle to the Indian auto market, in the international market, the Jimny has been doing a good job and is a popular mini-SUV.

The Suzuki Jimny and the Mercedes G-Wagon have so many things in common that they have been put in a tug of war in which up to three Jimnys can defeat one G-Wagon. Considering these difficult-to-explain similarities which include the clean surface and the robust design between the two vehicles, it is no surprise that quite a few car modification brands including a Chinese automobile conversion company have grabbed the opportunity and introduced conversion kits on the former to make it look like the latter. Although the name of the person who did the modification job is not revealed, the customized car’s details can be found on GTBOARD.com page on Facebook.
Let’s come to the details of the modification which have been done to the car. In the front, the customized Suzuki Jimny is equipped with a conventional Panamericana grille, fashionable LED headlights and a robust bull bar. It even comes with a chiselled hood and fashionable turn indicators which are mounted on the fender. These are the two outstanding features of the military-derived Mercy. Actually, the S logo should have given way to a three-pointed star to complete the overall package.
The modifications done to the Suzuki Jimny focus on its front.
On the side profile, the customized Jimny is packed with G-Wagon-like alloy wheels and a brand-new step board. The rear also bears a strong resemblance to that of the Mercedes G-Wagon. The typical dual exhaust pipes have also been carried over from the latter to the former. A close look will allow you to realize the build quality of the modified Suzuki Jimny.
On the side profile, some conversion has also been done to make the Jimny look like the G-Wagon.
Similarly, the rear of the vehicle has also been modified a little bit to make it resemble the G-Wagon.
Many other decently modified versions of the Jimny have been created such as the Black Bison Edition of Wald International. However, this one by the Chinese modifier would be among one of the best ever.
