  • India-spec Maruti Jimny is a five-door SUV that was unveiled at Auto Expo 2023. 

  • Offered in Zeta and Alpha trim levels in manual and automatic variants. 

  • Powered by a 105PS K15B 1.5-litre petrol engine and Suzuki’s AllGrip Pro 4x4 system. 

  • Launch expected by May, to be priced from Rs 10 lakh onwards (ex-showroom). 

It hasn’t even been a full month since the Maruti Jimny broke cover at Auto Expo 2023, but the SUV has already racked up 15,000 bookings in the country. That’s an impressive feat for a niche lifestyle off-roader, but to us, it’s no wonder, since many enthusiasts must’ve been waiting for the long-overdue SUV for months, if not years. 

The Jimny has been available to order in India ever since its unveiling on January 12 for a token amount of Rs 25,000. We expect the SUV to be officially launched by May, priced from around Rs 10 lakh to Rs 15 lakh (ex-showroom). First deliveries should begin soon after the launch. 

Given the Jimny’s long wheelbase, five-door practicality and iconic, cutesy aesthetics, you don’t have to be a gearhead to appreciate the ride. But if you are, the Jimny is one of the most capable off-roaders you can buy (or at least order) right now, equipped with a low-range transfer case, rigid front and rear axles and Suzuki’s AllGrip Pro four-wheel-drive system (4x4 or 4WD) as standard. 

In India, the Jimny is being offered in Zeta and Alpha trim levels with features such as a nine-inch infotainment touchscreen with Arkamys-tuned audio system, climate control, cruise control and keyless entry. It gets six airbags, stability control, hill assist and hill descent control as standard. 

The Maruti Jimny will face tough competition from the well-established Mahindra Thar and Force Gurkha, both of which will also get five-door versions later.
