KUALA LUMPURSuzuki made a bold comeback to Malaysia with the launch of the Swift Sport earlier this year. And, now it is geared up for rolling out its another gem on the local shores, which is none other than the beloved Jimny. Suzuki’s official distributor Naza Eastern Motors has just teased the mini off-road SUV on its social media account along with a caption “the one and only…returns.” Although there is no mention of the date, the teaser hints at the imminent arrival.
