The Suzuki SJ-Series began production in 1981 in Hamamatsu, Japan. In Japan, the SJ-Series was sold as the Suzuki Jimny and was a kei car. It was produced with both 550 cc and 660 cc 3-cylinder engines for domestic use. The SJ-Series was lengthened and widened for export purposes and had many names worldwide: Suzuki Samurai, Suzuki Sierra, Suzuki Potohar, Suzuki Caribbean, Suzuki Santana, Holden Drover (Australia) and Maruti Gypsy (India).

Styles and Major Options

SJ30

Jimny 550, mainly for Japanese domestic market consumption where it suited the Kei car category. Still powered by the LJ50 engine also used in its predecessor, the Jimny 550 was by a sizable margin the last two-stroke engine built in Japan. Production ended with the withdrawal of type approval in November 1987 in favor of its F5A engined replacement, the JA71. The two-stroke had been favored by Japanese off-roaders (and by Suzuki) due to its superior torque.

SJ40

The SJ40 Jimny 1000 was introduced in 1982 as an updated version of the LJ80. It used a larger version of that LJ's 1.0 liter 4-cylinder engine. This engine produced 45 hp (34 kW) and it had a top speed of 68 mph (109 km/h). A 4-speed manual transmission was standard, as were non-power assisted drum brakes front and rear. The SJ-410 came as a half-door convertible, pickup truck, 2-door hardtop, raised-roof hardtop, and no-glass hardtop. The SJ was produced in Spain by Santana Motors in their Linares, Jaén factory and sold as a domestic vehicle in Europe due to its over 60% native parts. Some later models of the SJ-410 would switch to disk brakes in the front depending on the factory they were made at.

SJ413

In 1984, the SJ was revamped with the launch of the SJ413. The SJ413 included a larger 1.3 liter 4-cylinder engine, 5-speed manual transmission and power brakes all around. The body and interior were also redesigned, with a new dashboard, seats, and grille. The SJ410 remained in production through 1985 with the old specifications.
