Maruti Jimny could prove to be a more affordable lifestyle SUV than its key rival Mahindra Thar. The carmaker has revealed the fuel efficiency figures of the upcoming SUV ahead of its launch next month. The Jimny SUV, offered with only petrol engine, offers more miles for every drop than the petrol version of the Thar SUV. Jimny could also prove to be a more pocket-friendly option for those seeking an off-road SUV as Maruti Suzuki is expected to price the Jimny aggressively.

According to the ARAI certified figures revealed ahead of Jimny's launch in June, the SUV is capable of offering up to 16.39 kmpl of mileage in the automatic variants. The manual variants offer more fuel efficiency with ARAI figures at 16.94 kmpl. With a fuel tank capacity of 40 litres, the Jimny SUV is expected to run between 650 kms and 700 kms without the need to refuel.
