Suzuki Motor Corporation's Indian subsidiary, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, has announced the global launch of the new 5-door Jimny at the Auto Expo 2023 being held in Delhi, India from January 11, 2023. Maruti Suzuki will start sales of the new Jimny 5-Door from 2023 onwards; Maruti Suzuki's SUV range will expand to four models and provide customers with a variety of options in the growing SUV segment in India


The Jimny 5-Door is planned for export to Africa and Latin America. Production and sales of the fourth-generation Jimny began in Japan in 2018, followed by exports to various regions, including Europe and Oceania. The model is well-received by people all over the world. In November 2020, Jimny production started in India exclusively for export to Latin America and Africa.


The fourth generation Jimny will be introduced for domestic sales in India for the first time as a 5-door variant. The model has grown in length and has been fitted with new doors and seats. The 5-door Jimny will deliver the capabilities customers expect from an authentic off-roader like the 3-door Jimny.

Length: 3985 mm

Width: 1645 mm

Height: 1720 mm

Wheelbase: 2590 mm

Auto Trendy’s take:

The Jimny 5-door is another vehicle that confirms the trend of SUVs growing their market share all over the world. What is more, the demand is growing for the more functional and practical editions which suggests that customers do not want to sacrifice a good family trip for some offroad excitement. In other words, a trend that might be putting some pressure on the mini SUV market as such.
