Has the Indian-spec Suzuki Jimny leaked online?



News of the Suzuki Jimny’s arrival on our shores has been circulating for some time now. But is this the end product that we might see on the roads?

This is what the Indian Suzuki Jimny could look like. Jimny has been in the news for a while now. The success of the new Mahindra Thar must have motivated Suzuki to give the Jimny a try. Thar was a huge hit in the market right from the launch. It’s a perfect lifestyle off-roader. Jimny, on the other hand, is a famous mini all-terrain machine in international markets. It lets you get around with an affordable SUV. Suzuki already manufactures the Jimny in India for export. But India itself could be a huge market for it. We’ll have to see if the Indian Suzuki Jimny could look like this.

Indian speculative gaze Suzuki Jimny

This is a version similar to that sold in the international market. The general silhouette is that of a small square SUV. The front usually features round headlights, a Jeep-style grille, short overhangs to facilitate approach and departure angles, etc. The sides feature a subtle profile without sharp folds. This is a 5-door version that will likely be launched in India as well. The reading window is separated from the A-pillar in this design. The rear keeps the spare wheel on the trunk lid as well as the taillights on the bumper at the bottom. As for the shape of the SUV, it retains the traditional tall, boxy look we’ve seen on the Gypsy over the years.

Expected specifications

The Suzuki Jimny will most likely be powered by the same naturally aspirated 1.5-liter engine, which develops 103 hp and 138 Nm. It is the same engine that powers the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ciaz and Ertiga. A 5-speed manual or AMT will be offered and perhaps the inclusion of drive modes to improve terrain responses and traction control. It will have a 4 × 4 drive system. We expect prices to stay around Thar, say Rs 10 lakh to Rs 15 lakh, excluding showroom range. It will be sold by the NEXA department of Maruti Suzuki. The direct rival will include Mahindra Thar as well as the recently launched Force Gurkha.
