Prior to the big reveal of the Mercedes-Benz GLB concept, the sport utility vehicle was suspected to be in line with the design of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Hence, it was dubbed as the “Baby G-Wagen” earlier. However, its maker took a different turn during the development phase of the vehicle, and it became a three-row compact SUV with off-road potentials.
On the other side of the coin, the Suzuki Jimny has always been referred to as miniature version of the G-Class. So, for those who are looking to get a Baby G-Wagen, a tuning company in China has come up with a conversion kit that puts the look of the Jimny closer to the iconic, boxy Mercedes SUV.
One would easily mistake the customized Jimny as a compact G-Class if it weren’t for its Suzuki logo. The unnamed Chinese tuner placed the same body lines that define the G-Class in the Jimny. The fenders are also extended to give the small SUV a more muscular look similar to the Mercedes unit. The halo LEDs, bull bar, and turn signals of the G-Class were replicated too.
The Jimny further takes its transformation closer to the G-Class by adopting the same twin exhaust pipes on each side of the German SUV. The spare wheel cover at the back imitates the G-Class as well. Not only that, even the distinctive Panamericana grille styling of the AMG G-Class is copied to the Jimny.
