The Jimny comes with a 103 BHP 1.5L petrol engine paired with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed AT. It will compete with the Mahindra Thar.
Maruti Suzuki has taken the wraps off the India-spec Jimny 5-door at the ongoing Auto Expo 2023. Bookings are now open.
The 5-door Jimny measures 3,985 mm in length, 1,645 mm in width, and 1,720 mm in height, and its wheelbase is 2,590 mm. The car offers a ground clearance of 210 mm.
In terms of design, the Jimny 5-door looks like a stretched version of the 3-door Jimny that we’re familiar with. That being said, it looks well-proportioned and has short front and rear overhangs with approach and departure angles of 30-degrees and 50-degrees, respectively.
Inside, the Jimny gets a rather busy-looking dashboard. It has a 3-spoke steering wheel and a conventional twin-pod analogue instrument cluster. The centre console houses a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
The Jimny will be offered in two variants: Zeta and Alpha, with features like automatic LED headlamps, electric ORVMs, automatic climate control and cruise control. The SUV also gets 6-airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP, Hill Hold Control, Hill Descent Control, a rearview camera and a brake-limited slip differential.
In India, the Jimny will be available with a 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 103 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 134.2 Nm @ 4,000 rpm. The engine is paired with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission and Suzuki’s AllGrip Pro all-wheel drive system.
