Suzuki Philippines has made the decision on where to get the popular Jimny from. The first decision involved getting Jimnys from India because of its larger production capacity. However, in 2023, Suzuki Philippines opted to get the 4×4 favorite from Japan.

Why Japan?

According to an anonymous Suzuki Executive, the reason why Suzuki PH decided to get the Jimnys from Japan is because of the cost. The components of building the Jimnys need to be shipped from Japan to India which means a bigger shipping fee. That is why to cut the cost, the company made the decision to get the popular 4×4 from Japan directly.
