Maruti Suzuki Jimny Dimensions
As per a new report, the specifications of the 5-door Maruti Suzuki Jimny Sierra have leaked online. The new Jimny Sierra is an off-road SUV for the domestic market. It is expected to have a length of 3850 mm, width of 1645 mm, height of 1730 mm, wheelbase of 2550 mm and ground clearance of 210 mm. In comparison to a regular three-door Jimny, the 5-door variant length has increased by 300 mm and the wheelbase length has gone up by 300 mm. On the weighing scale, it measures 1,190 kgs. The size of the wheels is 15-inches with 195/80 section tyres.
The stretch in length indicates that the 5-door Maruti Suzuki Jimny falls under the 4-meter section which can easily avail tax benefits in India. The length of the wheelbase which is 2,550 mm is greater than the compact SUVs which comes to 2500 mm, but it is lesser than what a mid-size SUV has in India. Therefore, the new 5-door Maruti Suzuki Jimny could slip in the middle of both the segments if Maruti Suzuki India Limited plans to bring it to the Indian market.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny Engine & Performance
Maruti Suzuki Jimny Sierra will be equipped with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder K-series inline DOHC petrol engine which can churn maximum power of 101 bhp at 6000 rpm and maximum torque of 130 Nm at 4000 rpm. The engine will be powered with a 5-speed manual gearbox which will be standard across all the variants and an option of a four-speed torque convertor for an automatic unit will also be on offer.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny Will Compete Against Mahindra Thar
It is very much expected the Maruti Suzuki Jimny can easily create its niche in the five-door icon. Jimny can give tough competition to Mahindra Thar as its wheelbase is longer by 100 mm whereas Mahindra Thar has a longer length than Maruti Suzuki Jimny by a difference of 135 mm. Jimny wonderfully tucks between compact SUVs and mid-size SUVs with great 4WD features and competitive pricing. Possibly, it can be made available at a little lower price than what the three-door Mahindra Thar is being offered at.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny Launch
The three-door Jimny is produced in India for the export markets. Presently, it is being imported as CKD units from Japan and assembled in India. The 3-door Jimny, which is a Made-In-India product is supposed to be exported to Middle East, Africa, and America. The 5-door Jimny is likely to launch in 2022, not before that.
