Maruti Suzuki has successfully marketed its latest off-roading entrant in India and received an overwhelming response on the 1st day itself. So let’s find out why everyone has their eye on the Maruti Suzuki Jimny.   

The off-roading vehicle has some really cool features:

Maruti Suzuki’s Jimny stands out with its powerful 1.5L K15B engine that can rival the Mahindra Thar as well. Apart from off-roading vehicles, Jimny’s price will also be competitive against SUVs like the Skoda Kushaq, MG Hector and Kia Seltos. 

The Jimny also features manual and automatic transmission gearboxes, has a unique design and can be driven on all types of terrains. Although it is a powerful car that can navigate rough terrains, the SUV does not compromise your comfort irrespective of where you drive it. The car manufacturers have chosen seven colours, including five single-tones and two dual-tones, for you to choose from. The tones were selected keeping different types of terrains and weather conditions, ones the car will likely experience, in mind. A unique ALLGRIP PRO (4WD) system, 3-link coil suspension and a rigid ladder frame come together to make the Jimny “a true off-road machine.”
