The cute off-roader isn't cute anymore.
Among the traits that make the Jimny such a desirable vehicle is its toyish appeal. We're not sure if it's the size, the colour, or both, but one thing's for sure, we want one in our garage. But what if the Jimny suddenly got a change of personality and turned into a sinister-looking badass off-roader?
That's what Wald International wanted to do with the Jimny Black Bison Edition. Just like the other Black Bison Editions made by Wald International, the Jimny gets a dark treatment from the Japanese tuner that somehow changed how the mini 4x4 looks. Not that we're complaining, though. We like this dark, new look.
Based on the Japanese Sierra version of the Jimny, which is the one sold globally, the Jimny Black Bison Edition is given a four-piece LED on the redesigned front bumper, complementing the new grille, headlight covers, and the aero bonnet. The over-wings also connect with the front and rear bumpers to emphasize the off-road tyres and aggressively-styled rims. At the roof, more LED is added to the front while a rear wing is available at the back – a little peculiar but it is what it is.
With this new look, the Jimny is far from being cute although there's still this one problem: Euro NCAP only gave it three stars. Now, that's a major problem.
