Recent reports state that Maruti will introduce a five-door version of Suzuki Jimny in India. The carmaker will likely retail the all-new SUV through its Nexa dealership.
Popular Indian carmaker, Maruti Suzuki, will introduce the Suzuki Jimny Sierra in India in near future. Our guess is that the SUV would be marketed as the new Maruti Gypsy. Reportedly, the India-bound model will have a 5-door layout. It may be noted that the third-gen model of the SUV was skipped for India, and we will finally get a derivative of the fourth-gen model, which was displayed at the Auto Expo 2020. The company thinks that the demand for the three-door Jimny in India will be quite low, so Maruti has decided to directly launch a five-door version of its popular mini-SUV.
The five-door Suzuki Jimny will be manufactured at the company’s production facility in Gujarat
The new Maruti Gypsy will be longer as compared to the JDM-spec MK4, which is sold globally, and in some markets, it is retailed as Suzuki Jimny Sierra. In terms of dimensions, the international version is 3,645 mm long, 1,645 mm wide and 1,720 mm tall. Moreover, it has 2,250 mm of wheelbase and the motorcycle stands 210 mm above the ground. Moreover, the approach, ramp break over and departure angle of the SUV is 37 degree, 28 degrees and 49 degrees, respectively. The 5-door version of the SUV should offer a more spacious cabin and addtional luggage space.
The internationally sold Suzuki Jimny MK4 offers 85-litre of boot space, which can be increased to 377-litre by reclining the second row of seats. Furthermore, the global Jimny MK4 is powered by a detuned, K15B, 1.5-litre, naturally aspirated petrol unit, which churns out 101.97 PS of power and 130 Nm of twisting force. The transmission duties are performed by a 5-speed manual transmission and a 4-speed automatic gearbox. The car gets ALL GRIP PRO-part-time 4WD system as standard. One can expect the India-spec Jimny to be offered with a more-affordable 2WD configuration as well.
