The vehicle gets a SmartPlay infotainment system, AC, power windows, push-button start, etc. The 3-door version has tiny seats at the rear which when folded offer good enough cargo capacity.
Powering the Jimny is a 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 100 HP and 130 Nm. This K15B mill also powers a variety of other Maruti cars. The SUV can be had with either a 5-speed MT or a 4-speed AT.
