Suzuki Jimny is loved by enthusiasts from all corners of the world. Recently, Suzuki has introduced the Jimny in the Mexican market, and the off-roader got sold out in just 72 hours. Read the complete report here.
Suzuki Jimny is one of the most popular products offered by the Japanese carmaker internationally. As per recent reports, in less than 72 hours, the 2021 Suzuki Jimny got sold out officially in Mexico. And we guess that the automaker was expecting this because Suzuki Motors has planned to import only 1,000 units of the SUV in the Mexican market as of now. The Suzuki off-roader will start reaching its owners in Mexico by January 2021. Suzuki Motors in Mexico is bringing Jimny by gauging the interest of the buyers. An order is only confirmed, when a potential buyer pays the token amount. The carmaker has also planned to launch Suzuki Jimny in India.
It was showcased in our market, early this year at the 2020 Auto Expo. Reports suggest that the automaker is working on the 5-seater version of the SUV, exclusively for the Indian market. It’ll derive power from the company’s K15B, 1.5-litre gasoline mill, which is capable of shredding out 104 PS of peak power and 138 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes paired with a 5-speed MT or a 4-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The same power plant does duties in the Maruti Ciaz, Vitara Brezza, XL6, Ertiga and S-Cross. At the 2020 Auto Expo, Suzuki Jimny has attracted many spectators.
Inside, it comes loaded with features like touchscreen infotainment unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, steering-mounted controls, automatic headlamps, keyless entry and so on. In terms of safety, it features dual airbags, ABS with EBD, hill start assist, brake assist and electronic stability program. Maruti will soon introduce the all-new Jimny in the Indian market and is expected to be retailed via the company’s premium Nexa dealership network. Once launched, the all-new Maruti SUV will compete with the likes of new-gen Mahindra Thar. One can expect the 5-door Jimny to be priced at Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom).
