Maruti Suzuki on Thursday finally unveiled the much-awaited five-door Jimny for the Indian market at Auto Expo 2023 in Greater Noida. The five-door avatar of the rugged SUV has been unveiled for the first time here. Bookings for the model have been opened through NEXA. Jimny has been one of the most-wanted models and promises to take the fight to the likes of Mahindra Thar which is now also available in the Rear-Wheel Drive version.

Manufacturing of Maruti Suzuki Jimny has already been taking place in India but these units have thus far been dispatched to markets overseas. The India-spec Jimny is the five-door version and underlines Maruti's continuing thrust towards vehicles that are either larger, have an SUV-ish profile, or both. In terms of dimensions, the five-door version of the India-specific Jimny is larger than its three-door version that is offered abroad, specifically in terms of the wheelbase.
