Suzuki Jimny Sierra, the rugged 4X4 off-roader from the Japanese carmaker, was recently showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo 2020. The model displayed at the event was the global-spec 3-door version packed with the 1.5L K15B petrol engine. We have done its first look video explaining all its details and factors that make it a sensible product for the Indian market. Considering all those parameters, the carmaker might bring it here by the end of 2021.
Maruti Suzuki, however, will launch the more practical five-door version of the Jimny. The fourth-generation Suzuki Jimny is based on the same body-on-frame chassis with light body weight and compact dimension. Globally, the SUV is available with a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox, coupled to 4WD (four-wheel-drive) system. The same transmission options and drivetrain system could be offered on the India-spec five-door Maruti Jimny.
Design and styling of the new Suzuki Jimny is quite rugged. Some of highlights include a five-slat front grille design, fog lamps with pronounced air intakes, circular LED headlamps, blackend bumpers, flared wheel arches and rear mounted spare wheel.
