Maruti Suzuki will be exporting the Jimny and Fronx to the Australian market in the coming months. Both vehicles will be manufactured in India. The 5-door version of the Jimny and the new Fronx crossover made their debut at the Auto Expo 2023 held last month in India.

The Fronx crossover is based on the Heartect platform and comes with either a 1.0L turbo-petrol engine producing 99 hp of power and 147 Nm of torque or a 1.2L petrol engine that makes 89 hp and 113 Nm. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed automatic as well as an AMT.
