Beginning in FY2023, Maruti Suzuki will start selling the all-new Jimny 5-Door and the all-new Fronx. With these, Maruti Suzuki’s SUV lineup will include four models, giving buyers more choices in the rapidly expanding SUV market in India.
It is planned to sell the Jimny 5-Door and Fronx to markets in South America and Africa.
New Jimny 5-Door’s General Layout
In 2018, the fourth generation Jimny was first produced and sold in Japan before being imported into Europe and Oceania. People from all across the world have responded well to it. The Jimny’s production began in India in November 2020, with the primary goal of exporting to Africa and South America.
The brand-new Jimny 5-Door, the fourth generation Jimny’s domestic debut, will take place in India. It is a unique specification with customised rear seats and interior decor used in the back compartment, as well as freshly installed rear doors for a 5-door design.
