Maruti Jimny 5-door has finally made its debut at the 2023 Auto Expo
After teasing the Indian market at the 2020 Auto Expo with the 3-door Maruti Jimny, the carmaker has finally introduced the 5-door version for the country this year.
It looks exactly like the 3-door version but is longer and has a proper second row seating with 2 additional doors. It has a tall and upright stance with a boxy old school SUV touch, which gets a lot of attention these days.
Interior is the same as well carrying the same basic dashboard design with a floating touchscreen infotainment system. Gets a 3-spoke steering wheel and a twin-pod analogue instrument cluster behind it.
It is powered by a K15 B 1.5-litre naturally aspirated engine which is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission and 4-speed automatic transmission option.
Maruti Suzuki will offer AllGrip 4×4 system with the Jimny with low range mode as well. It is expected to go on sale by mid-2023. It will compete with the Mahindra Thar in the lifestyle SUV segment.
