At Auto Expo 2020, Maruti Suzuki India showcased the Fourth Generation Japan model of Suzuki Jimny. Known as the ‘authentic off-roader’, the all-terrain vehicle has a legacy of over 50 years, catering to customers worldwide.
Speaking about the Suzuki Jimny, Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India said, “Suzuki Jimny with its compact design and superb off-road capabilities is an engineering marvel and speaks volumes about Suzuki’s engineering capabilities. Masterfully designed to ensure reliable driving and ease of handling, Suzuki Jimny is a favourite amongst adventure enthusiasts. Jimny has been developed basis thorough research, assessing the expectations and requirements of professional users.”
He added, “The vehicle has been showcased at Auto Expo to assess response of the Indian consumers to the product.”
Designed for customers who demand a stylish vehicle with robust off-road performance, Jimny is built on a tough & compact platform offering excellent maneuverability. A true off-road vehicle, the Suzuki Jimny has proven to be reliable and strong despite its compact footprint, becoming Suzuki’s flagship model across 194 countries and regions. Sporting a rectangular body shape helps Jimny create an excellent awareness of the vehicle stance and its surroundings. The use of a ladder frame, low range transfer gear and 3-link rigid axle suspension helps boost performance while ensuring good ride comfort. Interiors have been thoughtfully designed, ensuring functionality in every detail. These have further been inherited and enhanced from previous generations of the Jimny.
With a strong 1.5L petrol engine, the Jimny has power of 75 kW /6000 rpm and torque of 130 Nm /4000 rpm to traverse difficult terrains. The 4WD drive enhanced with the ALL GRIP PRO technology, takes on all terrains with unrivalled agility and powerful torque. Its functionality has been appreciated with recognitions like ‘urban car winner’ in the 2019 World Car Awards announced at the New York International Motor Show in April’2019.
