Maruti Suzuki Jimny India launch, Price & Features - Update
Maruti Suzuki Jimny (Gypsy) India Launch in 2021 with Prices between Rs 10 to 14 Lakh - All You Need to Know
The Jimny has been talked about for a long time regarding its India launch plans with no clarity on the matter till now. The Jimny 4x4 Lifestyle Off-road SUV has been one of the most awaited new cars from the Maruti Suzuki stables and the Jimny was also showcased at the Auto Expo held earlier this year. The Jimny which was showcased was the three-door international model and that led to a lot of talks that the Jimny is indeed coming to India. Now an image has surfaced online showing that pilot production of the Jimny has started at the Maruti Gurugram factory hinting. The image shows the first batch of cars being made now these are CKD and it remains to be seen whether the Jimny is actually coming to this year-end or early next year.
5-door Jimny or 3-door?
The image shows that the 3-door is being assembled with CKD units and it remains to be seen whether the 3-door is coming to India or not. The 3-door being a CKD would be more expensive and might be priced at or higher than the Mahindra Thar hence might put Maruti at a disadvantage. However to test the market, Maruti could bring in the Jimny 3-door at limited numbers as an exclusive model.
Maruti is also developing a 5-door version which would also be based on the same ladder-frame chassis along with being powered by the same engines as the Brezza or the Ciaz. The 5-door will have more space and would be more practical for our market.
The Jimny like the Thar is a hardcore off-roader with all the essential off-road gear including a ladder frame, the three angles, 3-link rigid axle suspension and ALLGRIP PRO, a part-time 4WD system with low range transfer gear.
Jimny 5-door price
The Thar starts at below Rs 10 lakh while also being much bigger than the Jimny hence Maruti also needs to target a below Rs 10 lakh price for the Jimny while the top-end would be Rs 14 lakh or around the same as Thar. That would be with localization and the 5-door.
The Jimny comes with a decent features list and is similar to the Vitara Brezza with the latest Maruti touch screen infotainment system and more. The Jimny comes with Dual Sensor Brake Support (DSBS) Lane Departure Warning and Weaving Alert. Air conditioning, Auto Headlights with High Beam Assist, front fog-lamps and Bluetooth connectivity are part of the standard features plus dual airbags/ABS.
