Maruti Suzuki will launch the Jimny-5 door in India soon. The off-roader was showcased alongside the Fronx at the Auto Expo 2023. According to reports, the new Jimny has already received more than 18,000 pre-orders in India. For those unaware, the Jimny acquired 9,000 reservations in the first ten days, demonstrating its popularity among Indian consumers even before the official launch. In a recent development, the new Jimny has reached the Nexa outlets in India. Maruti Suzuki intends to offer a first-hand experience of the model to buyers prior to the launch, and for the same, it has kept the SUV on display. The SUV will be displayed in a phase-wise manner. It will initially be on show for only one or two days. Beginning in April 2023, we may anticipate the new Jimny production to start. The market launch and price announcement, however, are most likely to happen in May 2023. Here's a complete set of details on the most anticipated off-roader in India.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny-5 Door: Mechanical Specifications
Powering the new Jimny will be a 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine, producing 104bhp and 134Nm. It comes mated to either a 4-speed torque-converter automatic or a 5-speed manual transmission. Suzuki's AllGrip Pro 4WD system with a manual transfer case and a low-range transmission with 2WD-high, 4WD-high, and 4WD-low modes make up the Jimny-5 door off-road machinery. The new SUV will be created in the company's Gujarat production site, where the three-door Jimny is presently made for export. Instead of the monocoque architecture, the five-door Maruti Suzuki Jimny has a ladder frame chassis.
