Maruti has started exporting India-made 5-door Suzuki Jimny. The compact off-road SUV will be shipped to destinations including the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America.
The 5-door Suzuki Jimny, which was unveiled at Auto Expo 2023, is made exclusively in India. The Jimny 5-door was formally launched in the domestic (Indian) market in June 2023. Prior to that, in November 2020, Maruti began manufacturing the 3-door Jimny exclusively for export markets like Africa and Latin America.
Commenting on the development, Mr. Hisashi Takeuchi, Managing Director & CEO, of Maruti Suzuki India, said:
The Jimny has strengthened Maruti Suzuki’s presence in SUV segment. This lifestyle SUV has especially appealed to customers who enjoy off-roading experience through tough terrains. The India-manufactured Jimny 5-Door in our export portfolio will surely create excitement among our overseas customers. Aligning with the Government of India’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, our Company now exports an extensive range of 17 vehicles across segments. We remain committed in our efforts to sustain leadership in export of India-manufactured passenger vehicles.
The 5-door Jimny is powered by a 1.5L naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 104hp of power and 134Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed torque converter automatic. It is priced between INR 12.74 lac and INR 15.05 lac in the Indian market.
