The Suzuki Jimny is expected to be launched in the Indian auto market next year. Numerous CKD kits of this off-road SUV have been reportedly imported to the country to kick-start the production. It is being said that the shipments of up to 5,000 units of CKD kits of Suzuki Jimny are waiting for customs clearance. The India-spec Suzuki Jimny is expected to be available in a five-door version. The new car will be retailed via premium NEXA dealership network of Maruti Suzuki.

The Suzuki Jimny will receive its power from a 1.5-litre K-Series gasoline burner which can deliver 100 BHP against 130 Nm. The transmission duties will be undertaken by a 5-speed MT and a 4-speed AT. The SUV will come with Suzuki’s advanced 4WD AllGrip system for enhanced off-road capabilities.

Although the three-door version of the Jimny has made its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo, the five-door version of this SUV is expected to be launched in India to serve as the substitute for the Maruti Gypsy. The 5-door one will provide the passengers with a larger cabin and rear doors, which helps this SUV become more suitable for the family buyers. The SUV will get longer wheelbase and have greater dimensions.

The new-gen Suzuki Jimny has recorded great success in foreign countries. Actually, the SUV is sold out for 2020 in Australia and several other markets. The new car is replete with many modern features such as automatic headlights, a smart play infotainment system which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, keyless entry, an air-conditioning system and start/stop push button.

It was recently reported that the fourth-gen Suzuki Jimny’s production would be discontinued in Europe in the foreseeable future due to more stringent emission standards. The Japanese automaker thinks that offering its products there would be unreasonable.
