Jimmy is coming soon? Maruti Suzuki introduces new off-roader SUV

Maruti Suzuki has released a teaser for its upcoming automobile, the much-awaited Jimny SUV, through the Nexa social media handle. The teaser slogan is “This Just In! A thrilling adventure tour can be seen in multiple scenarios!” “What car is this?” is a question.

As of now, the teaser shows the tire prints of the car on an off-road/desert road, which makes us think that the car is nothing more than an upcoming Jimny SUV. The 3-door variant of the SUV is manufactured at the company’s Manesar, Haryana factory and is sold in the international markets. India, on the other hand, is expected to get a longer 5-door version of the Jimny, which is currently under development.

Mahindra has earlier released the new generation Thar SUV in India, while the new generation Gurkha has just been released. The upcoming Maruti Jimny SUV will compete directly with both the extreme off-roaders. The new India-spec 5-door LWB variant of the Maruti Suzuki Jimny is expected to hit the market in 2022.

The international-spec engine from the Jimny is a 1.4-litre mild-hybrid turbocharged petrol, though the 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine could be used in India. The same engine can be found in Maruti’s current Vitara Brezza, Ciaz, Ertiga and XL6 models. This engine is designed to generate 103 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 138 Nm of peak torque at 4400 rpm. The engine will come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and an optional 4-speed automatic torque converter transmission may also be offered.
