The Suzuki Jimny, which is currently in its fourth-generation, was launched in Japan last year. Internationally, the Jimny comes with two engine options – a 660cc, turbocharged, 3-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.5-litre, naturally aspirated, 4-cylinder petrol engine. In terms of the gearbox, there’s an option between a 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmission. Also, the compact SUV only comes with a three-door setup, but Suzuki could develop a longer wheelbase version with a five-door configuration for the Indian market. However, the true essence of the Gypsy still lies in the three-door format.
Ever since the launch of the Jimny, rumours of it arriving to India have been ripe. However, this latest report does seem to point towards the Jimny finally making its way to the Indian market. This latest development will come as welcome news for customers looking to buy a rugged, capable and relatively compact SUV for some serious mud plugging.
