The new Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-door has been developed specifically for India with exports planned as well. The off-roader gets an extra set of doors, a rear bench and more cargo space over its original 3-door version. It’s noteworthy to know that the Jimny remains a sub-4-metre offering while the ground clearance stands at 210 mm. Compared to the three-door model, the five-door version retains the same design and boxy silhouette, while the extra length does not compromise the looks of the off-roader.

The new Maruti Suzuki Jimny will be available in two variants - Zeta and Alpha, which should make it fairly loaded in both iterations. Prices are expected to start from about 10 lakh (ex-showroom) onwards and the off-roader will take on the Mahindra Thar and the Force Gurkha in the segment, both of which are three-door models but will get five-door iterations in the future. Bookings are already open for the Jimny and last heard of the off-roader garnering over 18,000 orders. The waiting period will be something to watch out for.
