Suzuki Jimny SUV India Launch – Here Is The Latest Update
According to a recent internet claim, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) is planning to launch the Jimny off-roader by the middle of 2023. The country’s largest automaker recently launched the dramatically redesigned Brezza in the Indian markets, and it will be followed by an all-new midsize SUV later this year.
Maruti Suzuki showed the JDM-spec 3-door Jimny Sierra at the 2020 Auto Expo in order to test customer interest in the lifestyle off-roader, and it drew a lot of attention. The manufacturing of the 3-door Jimny in India commenced in 2021 to accommodate global demand since it is transported to various nations from the Gurugram plant.
Despite debate about its launch date, the current rumour says that the Jimny would arrive in India in the first quarter of the next fiscal year. Surprisingly, it is said to be available in a variety of configurations (five- and seven-seater layouts). It will fight directly with the second-generation Mahindra Thar, whose five-door variant is also on the way.
According to the media report, the pre-pilot testing was supposed to take place this month, but it was pushed back due to supply chain concerns with imported components. The five-door Maruti Suzuki Jimny was scheduled to begin production in February 2023, but it has now been pushed back to March or April due to supply chain problems.
MSIL intends to sell approximately 75,000 units of the Indian-spec Jimny in the first few years, and the seven-seater is likely to make an immediate impact. The five-door Jimny will reportedly go on trial in January 2023, with the off-roader initially limited to around 70% of the market. The five-seater Jimny will almost certainly be a sub-four-metre SUV powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine.
