Maruti Suzuki has rolled out a teaser through Nexa's social media handles of an upcoming car which is most likely the much-awaited Jimny SUV. The teaser uses the tagline, "This just in! A wild adventurous ride has been spotted making its way through different terrains! The one question is, what car is this?"

The teaser shows car tyres marks on an off-road/desert trail which leads us to believe that the car may be nothing else but the upcoming Jimny SUV. While the company makes the 3-door version of the SUV in its Manesar, Haryana plant, the same is exported to the world markets. On the other hand, India is slated to get the longer 5-door version of the Jimny, which is currently been developed.
