Maruti Suzuki Jimny Expected To Debut In Auto Expo 2023


Maruti Suzuki is all set to introduce the Jimny into the Indian market in the upcoming year (2023). The five-door model of the car will be available in India after making its debut in Delhi Auto Expo 2023. The looks of the SUV will be mostly similar to that of its 3-door sibling. There will be only some minor facelifts in terms of the design of the SUV. The SUV has been spotted multiple times during its road trial.

The details about the upcoming SUV has been mentioned below.


The Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-door–model gets a body shell and its prominent outline for passenger seats was visible even though the car was properly camouflaged. When it comes to dimension of the SUV, it is expected to be 3850mm in length, 1645mm in width and 1730mm in height. The length of the car will be almost similar to that of the Swift while it is shorter than the Brezza. While the Swift measures 3845mm in length, the Brezza is 3995mm. Comparatively, the 3-door model measures 3550mm.

The ground clearance of the car is 210mm while the weight is around 1190kg. The wheelbase of the 5-door Jimny is 2550mm which is 300mm more than the 3-door model.


The Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-door version will get a new K15C DualJet engine. It will produce a peak power of 103hp and maximum torque 137Nm. The engine will be coupled with a 5-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. The engine will be either a 1.2 litre or 1.5 litre petrol engines. A four-wheel-drive option will be present on the car along with mild-hybrid technology. The SUV will have 16-inch alloy wheels and the spare wheel will be mounted on the tailgate.


The price of the Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-door version is expected to be similar to that of the high-end Brezza models. Even though the Jimny does not have direct rivals in the Indian market, it is expected to have competition from Mahindra Thar as well as Force Gurkha SUVs.

We hope that the Maruti Suzuki Jimny fills the void left out by the Maruti Gypsy. The Maruti Gypsy was in production for civilians till March 2019, and then stopped. Currently, the Gypsy is only manufactured for the Defense forces of India.
