Since it was debuted at the Auto Expo 2023, Maruti Suzuki’s Jimny has been the buzz of the town. The SUV made its debut in India as a 5-door model even though it is only offered as a three-door model elsewhere in the world. Indian SUV fans are anxiously awaiting the introduction of the recognizable SUV. With Jimny’s formal debut coming up next month, the wait is finally over. An online dealer invoice has revealed the anticipated price of the Jimny before its official release.
The base Zeta MT model of the Maruti Suzuki Jimny will cost Rs 9.99 lakh, and the top-spec Alpha AT variant will cost Rs 13.99 lakh, according to the leaked dealer invoice (all prices are ex-showroom, Delhi).
Furthermore, based on the model’s specifications given in the invoice, it may be the most advanced version of the SUV. In that case, the Jimny Alpha variant’s on-road cost would be close to Rs 16 lakh. It’s important to note that the Jimny will be offered in two trim levels at launch: Zeta and Alpha. Four versions will each receive one of these two trims.
In comparison to the 3-door variant now available in other regions across the world, the Jimny headed for India would feature a larger wheelbase. The SUV will provide access to the back seats, thus many Indian vehicle buyers may find the Jimny to be an appealing alternative.
A clamshell bonnet, circular headlights with independent indicators, a front grille with vertical apertures, and rear combination lamps are just a few of the tough design features the Jimny is known for.
The much awaited SUV will be equipped with cutting-edge technology including the SmartPlay Pro+ infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connection.
A 1.5-liter gasoline engine with 103 BHP and 134.2 Nm of torque will power the Jimny. This engine, which is extremely tuned, is found in vehicles like the XL6, Ertiga, and Brezza.
The drivetrain for the Jimny will be mated to either a 4-speed automatic transmission or a 5-speed manual transmission. Due to Suzuki’s AllGrip all-wheel drive technology, Jimny will also have substantial off-roading capabilities.
In India, the Maruti Suzuki Jimny will compete with vehicles like the Mahindra Thar and Force Gurkha.
