After seeing Mahindra Thar, there is hardly a person who does not want to take it. However, when it comes to price, many people suppress their aspirations in their heart. Mahindra Thar has a starting price of Rs 12.79 lakh. Maruti Suzuki is now going to fulfill this demand of the people. In fact, Maruti Suzuki will launch its offroad SUV Jimny next year. This car was first introduced at Auto Expo 2020. Since then, everyone has been waiting for its launch. Now the 5-door variant of Jimny is coming. It can directly compete with Mahindra Thar and Force Gurkha. Jimny will be cheaper than Mahindra Thar.

Production was delayed due to lack of chip
Production of Maruti Suzuki Jimny was to start in February 2023. However, it was delayed due to lack of semiconductors. The company is reported to start Jimny’s pre-production trails by the end of June 2022. In the first phase the model will be produced with about 70% locally sourced components. Maruti Suzuki will gradually increase its level of localization and its target is to produce about 75,000 units in its early years. According to the report, the Indo-Japanese automaker has not yet received the approval of the board and authorities for the production of diesel Jimny. The new Maruti Jimny 7-seater will be in direct competition with Mahindra Thar. The length of its 5-seater variant is likely to be less than sub-4 meters.

These engines are also coming in New Breza, Ortiga and Ciaz. The car will have the option of 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. The off-road SUV will underpin the ladder frame chassis and come with Suzuki’s Allgrip Pro 4 wheel drive technology, 3-link rigid axle suspension and low range transfer gear. Whereas, the price of its base variant may be less than 10 lakh.
