The South African Jimny 5-door base variant comes with dual airbags only, whereas the model we get in India is equipped with six airbags across all variants. Apart from lesser airbags, both versions get standard safety features such as ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, brake assist, and ISOFIX mounts for child seats.
