The Auto Expo is getting more exciting as it draws near to a close. Maruti Suzuki had been contemplating showcasing the Jimny at the first opportunity. The Auto Expo has given them the chance to display the Jimny and gauge the response of the Indian customers.
The vehicle is not a new one when you consider that it comes with a legacy of more than half a century. This all-terrain vehicle might prove to be the best Maruti offering in this segment.
Mr Kenichi Ayukawa, MD & CEO of Maruti Suzuki India, praised the qualities of the Jimny and lauded its off-road capabilities. Terming it as an engineering marvel, the Suzuki Jimny can provide a reliable driving experience while enhancing the ease of handling it. Adventure enthusiasts love to have the Jimny serve their interests on their expeditions. The Jimny is a result of years of research while assessing the expectations and the needs of professional drivers.
Mr Ayukawa added that Suzuki is gauging the Indian response to the Jimny before proceeding with its launch sometime in the future.
The Suzuki Jimny can provide customers with a combination of a stylish vehicle and a robust off-road performance. The strength of the Jimny is the high level of manoeuvrability that makes it one of the most reliable off-roaders in the international circuit. For the uninitiated, Suzuki Jimny has been hugely successful in 194 countries.
The rectangular shape of the vehicle provides the perfect balance that it needs when negotiating the toughest of terrains. The ladder-frame, 3-link rigid axle suspension and the low range transfer gear system ensures a high-quality performance while providing extreme levels of comfort. The company has ensured to design the interiors tastefully to appeal to all generations.
The Jimny draws its magnificent power from a 1.5L petrol engine that can deliver 75kW of power and a torque of 130Nm. It enables the vehicle to traverse the most challenging of terrains. The 4WD drive with ALL GRIP PRO technology makes the car extremely agile. The car has won various awards at motor shows all over the world, the most recent one being the “Urban Car Winner” award at the 2019 World Car Awards.
The vehicle has impressive dimensions, as is evident from the following:
- Length – 3550mm
- Width – 1645mm
- Height – 1730mm
- Wheelbase – 2250mm
Time alone will tell how the Indian consumer reacts to the Suzuki Jimny. However, the market has been expecting the showcasing of the Jimny right from the first day at the Expo.
