The 2018 Suzuki Jimny comes with features like projector headlamps, LED DRLs and a touchscreen infotainment system. Speculations are high suggesting that Maruti might launch the Jimny in India disguised as the next-generation Gypsy.
The 2018 Jimny is right up there with the Kizashi when it comes to the list of desirable cars manufactured by Suzuki. But unlike the Kizashi, we are still not sure if the Jimny is going to come to India or not. Suzuki has only recently launched the next-generation Jimny in the Japanese market. And by what we hear, they have made a truly impressive vehicle. The earlier generation Jimny, though a capable off-roader, lacked when it came to onboard features. With this generation, Suzuki has given this 4×4 all the bells and whistles you can imagine. Hence it comes with features like projector headlamps, LED DRLs, a touchscreen infotainment system and even automatic climate control. Engine specs include only a petrol engine for now with no plans to introduce a diesel version anytime soon. Read along to get complete details of this vehicle.
Prices of the 2018 Maruti Jimny in India are likely to fall in the range of INR 6 lakh to 9 lakh if it comes to India. This will pitch is against the likes of Mahindra Thar and the Force Gurkha.

We believe that the 2018 Suzuki Jimny will have the automaker’s 1.0-litre Boosterjet petrol engine. The SUV is not going to get a diesel derivative as of now. This petrol engine is capable of producing 110 BHP along with 170 Nm of peak torque. However, the India spec version could have the 100 BHP and 150 Nm version. It could also be the same as that for the India spec version, it might get the 1.4-litre, K-Series petrol engine. The SUV is going to come with a 5-speed manual gearbox. It will also come with differential locks as well.

The 1.0-litre Boosterjet engine apart from being powerful is also quite fuel efficient. Since the new iteration of the Gypsy is going to use Suzuki’s new HERTECT platform, it will have just close to 1000 kgs of kerb weight. Hence, we expect a fuel efficiency figure from this off-roader close to 15 to 17 km/l.
According to recent media reports, this SUV will be 3.91 meters in length. In comparison, the current spec version measures 3.61 meters. In the international markets, the Jimny will retail as a 3-door vehicle. However, if it comes to India, it is going to have a 5-door layout.
Going by the images which were recently revealed on the internet, the next-generation Suzuki Jimny appears to be a very potent product. Talking about its exterior design, it comes with a very boxy yet stylish appearance. In the front, the mini off-roader comes with a very aggressive fascia. This is the result of the black, multi-slate grille. Furthermore, to enhance its looks, it comes with circular headlamps. These provide it with a very mean look.
