Maruti Suzuki just began deliveries of the Jimny SUV in India, and consumers have already started customising their Jimny SUVs. The Maruti Suzuki Jimny available in India today is a remarkable example of extreme modification. With modifications worth approximately Rs 4.5 lakhs, the Jimny stands out from the rest. On June 7, Maruti Suzuki launched the long-awaited 5-door Jimny in India, a replacement for the legendary Gipsy. Since 2018, the redesigned Jimny has been available in export markets as a three-door SUV. The Jimny 5-door SUV has been on sale in India for less than a month, and the carmaker has already received more than 31,000 bookings. Due to its increasing popularity, the Jimny SUV now has a long 8-month waiting period in India. The popularity of the Maruti Suzuki Jimny is no surprise, given the vehicle's widespread acclaim and impressive off-road capabilities.
Modified Maruti Suzuki Jimny: Modifications
When it comes to this customised Jimny SUV, we're talking about a Zeta variant. The SUV has gained a great deal of character from the modifications. To begin with, bigger 16-inch Enkei Japan RPT1 alloy wheels have replaced the standard issue 15-inch wheels. The Continental Cross Contact AT tyres look great on these bronze alloy wheels. This one modification alone completely alters the Jimny’s appearance.
Additionally, this white Jimny has had extensive suspension upgrades. A TANABE Japan Coilover kit has been installed, allowing for height and damping adjustments – the suspension's stiffness can be fine-tuned using a dial that has 14 clicks of travel. In addition, TANABE Japan supplied the Jimny with front and rear lateral rods, a steering damper, and a strut brace.
With these upgrades, this Maruti Suzuki Jimny has become one of the most impressively customised and durable Jimny SUVs in the nation.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny: Engine
A 1.5-litre 4-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine powers the Maruti Suzuki Jimny SUV and produces 103bhp and 134.2Nm of torque. There are two gearbox options: a 4-speed automatic and a 5-speed manual. The recently unveiled Maruti Suzuki Jimny SUV also has Suzuki's AllGrip Pro 4WD with a low-range gearbox, enhancing its off-road capabilities.
Maruti Suzuki claims a fuel economy of 16.94km/l for the manual Jimny SUV and 16.39km/l for the automatic Jimny SUV. With its 40-litre fuel tank, the Jimny can go roughly 650km on a full tank of fuel. The Maruti Suzuki Brezza SUV, on the other hand, offers EPA ratings of 20.15km/l when equipped with a manual gearbox and 19.80km/l with an automated gearbox with the same engine.
