Maruti Suzuki Jimny Coming To India First Look | Thar Ko Mili Takkar? |

Maruti Jimny Gets a 1.5-litre petrol engine

Jimny’s breakover and departure angles are better the Mercedes-Benz G-Class

After looking at it through our computer screens, we finally have seen the Suzuki Jimny in India! Maruti has brought the tough little offroader to the Auto Expo. The venerable 4x4 has already been confirmed for major markets such as Europe, Australia, Russia, and of course, Japan, and Suzuki has promised that it will be sold throughout the world.’ However, the India launch still remains unlikely. 

The fourth-gen Jimny inherits some design elements from the Gypsy (second-gen Jimny) and even the first-gen model. Both these generations followed a boxy design theme, which looked more rugged compared to the third-gen model. The Jimny gets an almost vertical windshield and a clamshell-type flat hood, a setup that maximises the visibility both on and off-road. In order to give a better view of the SUV’s surroundings from inside the cabin, the front windows feature a kink that allows for a larger glass area. The outside rearview mirror on the opposite side of the steering wheel also gets multi-view mirrors, which are a boon while off-roading. For more details, watch our first look video.
