  • Maruti Suzuki Jimny Spotted in Mumbai, a left-hand drive variant that is ready for export 
  • The exact launch date of the Maruti Suzuki Jimny in India has not yet been announced.


Maruti Suzuki began manufacturing and exporting the Jimny from India in January 2021, with the vehicle being sold in areas such as Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. This time around, a Maruti Suzuki Jimny with left-hand drive and export preparations was observed in Mumbai. 


In terms of the Indian market, the company has not yet provided or stated the official launch date of Maruti Suzuki Jimny and when it expects to begin operations there. It is thought that Maruti Suzuki is analyzing client input in order to determine the viability of Jimny in the Indian marketplace

The Maruti Suzuki Jimny is powered mechanically by a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder K15B petrol engine that produces 101 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 130 Newton-meters of torque at 4,000 rpm in foreign markets, according to Maruti Suzuki. 


The Maruti Suzuki Jimny engine will be paired with either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic transmission.


According to the leaked dimensions of Maruti Suzuki Jimny, the five-door version would have a length of 3,850 mm, a width of 1,645 mm, a height of 1,730 mm, and a wheelbase of 2,550 mm. It will be available in two body styles: sedan and coupe.

Furthermore, the Maruti Suzuki Jimny will have a significant amount of ground clearance (210mm). For more information about the five-door variant.


If the Maruti Suzuki Jimny is launched into the Indian market, it will compete against vehicles such as the Mahindra Thar and the Force Gurkha. The Semiconductor chips crisis may also have an influence on the company's launch preparations. 


In 2022, it is possible that further information about Maruti Suzuki's Jimny ambitions for the country would be revealed.
