2022 Suzuki JImny LWB Spied. Coming to India as New Gypsy?
Suzuki Jimny long wheelbase is coming to India?
The Jimny has been in the news for a long time and now finally we can take some action towards the development of the 5-door model in India. The Jimny which is manufactured in India is already sold abroad in many markets but that is the 3-door version. The one which is expected to come to India would be the 5-door with a longer wheelbase. This is the one which we are talking about and it’s a Jimny with a longer wheelbase. This is spied in Europe and interestingly the one seen here is a longer Jimny but does not get extra doors and is just the 3-door variant.
However this might be for testing purposes and the 5-door version would be revealed eventually. India will get that and we expect a launch in next year though as of now the Jimny has not been considered for India officially since Maruti has been silent about this as it has only talked about the export of this SUV. The 5-door version is expected to stay the same design wise while it would only be longer else it is the same as the 3-door version. The Jimny in India would get the same 1.5l petrol engine to begin with along with a 5-speed manual as standard while a 4-speed automatic would be optional. However with Maruti rumoured to be re-thinking its diesel strategy, the Jimny might also get the 1.5l diesel. The Jimny would come standard with a 4x4 system with a low-range gearbox for proper off-roading along with having more proper off-road oriented features too. Unlike the previous Jimny the new one though is a lot more luxurious. The 5-door would be built alongside the 3-door version at the Maruti factory and we expect the 5-door to start from Rs 10 lakh. The pricing might be high since it is a rather small SUV even with the longer wheelbase, but the looks plus 4x4 makes it a more appealing car plus it is more of a rival to the Mahindra Thar rather than any other front wheel drive SUV.
Let us hope that the new Jimny 5-door is coming to India soon by early 2022 as this SUV has been in the news since ages and enthusiasts are waiting for this plus the success of the Thar might have also made Maruti re-think about the Jimny launch timeline.
