Here’s a digital render of the 3-door Suzuki Jimny, which shows how the SUV could look like after wearing expedition kit.
Suzuki Jimny is one of the popularly known off-roaders around the world. The SUV is also quite popular among the modifiers and earlier we’ve covered a lot of highly customized versions of Suzuki Jimny on our website. Here’s a new render of the SUV, which shows what an expedition version of the Jimny could look like. The new render clearly shows that the expedition version of the car features all-terrain tyres along with a body lift kit. This should have increased the ground clearance of the SUV to over 250mm. Illumination duties are done by Jimny’s conventional round headlamps and aftermarket auxiliary lamps along with a bar LED light mounted on the roof of the car. The roof of the car also features a metal luggage carrier. This digital render shows how subtle and classy customizations can make the Jimny look more butch.
It must be noted here that the Suzuki Jimny Sierra was showcased by Maruti Suzuki earlier this year at the 2020 Auto Expo. The SUV is expected to hit the Indian shores in the coming months. Once launched, it’ll directly compete with the likes of upcoming new-gen Mahindra Thar. Reports suggest that the automaker will introduce a 5-door model of the car built exclusively for the Indian market as the demand for the three-door model will be quite low. In terms of dimension, the international-spec three-door Suzuki Jimny is 3,645 mm long, 1,645 mm wide and 1,720 mm tall. Moreover, it has 2,250 mm of wheelbase and the SUV stands 210 mm above the ground.
Mechanically, it’ll derive power from the company’s K15B 1.5-litre gasoline mill that produces 105 PS of peak power and 130 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties will be handled by a 5-speed MT or a 4-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The same powertrain does duties in the Maruti Ciaz, Ertiga, XL6 and upcoming S-Cross petrol. The off-roader is likely to be offered with company’s ALL GRIP PRO-part-time 4WD system as a standard fitment. We also expect the India-spec Suzuki Jimny to be offered in 2WD configuration as well.
