With the launch of the fourth-generation Jimny launched at the beginning of November, Suzuki's numbers are starting to pick up and we will see these units increase as orders increase.

Suzuki sold 174 units of its tough little 4x4 for the month, and it's only the beginning of a very long waiting list.
