After several big-ticket showcases at the Auto Expo including its Concept Futuro-E, new Brezza with petrol engine and the new Ignis with styling upgrades, Maruti Suzuki kept the buzz firmly at its pavilion here by displaying the fourth-generation Jimny, a car with a legacy that dates back 50 years.

Billed as the 'authentic off-roader', the company managed to keep the spotlight firmly on itself by showcasing the Jimny. While it has been speculated that Maruti Suzuki would drive in the car for the Indian buyers and while there has been an enormous amount of interest, there has been no official word on a possible launch. The idea to have it on display at Auto Expo 2020, Maruti Suzuki says, is to gauge response from Indian customers. "The vehicle has been showcased at Auto Expo to assess response of the Indian consumers to the product," said Kenichi Ayukawa, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited. "Suzuki Jimny with its compact design and superb off-road capabilities is an engineering marvel and speaks volumes about Suzuki’s engineering capabilities. Masterfully designed to ensure reliable driving and ease of handling, Suzuki Jimny is a favourite amongst adventure enthusiasts."
