The Maruti Jimny 5-door is here! – Dubai Car News

The Suzuki Jimny is a very capable off-roader but in the 3-door format it was impractical even for small families. To capture the Indian SUV market, Maruti has been thinking of launching the Jimny here for a long time.

But to make SUV popular in this country, practicality and usability play an important role. Hence, the automaker built the Jimny in 5-door form with a stretched wheelbase while retaining its 4WD capability.

This results in increased rear-seat legroom and boot space while still being less than 4 meters in overall length. The 5-door Jimny debuted at Maruti’s pavilion at the Auto Expo 2023 and here’s everything that is known about the SUV.

Maruti Jimny: Powertrain Options and Specifications

Maruti has avoided giving the Jimny 5-door its latest engine and transmission options and we’re not sure why. Because of this, it gets the same engine as its 3-door counterpart – the old 1.5-litre K15B producing 105hp and 134Nm. Although it has mild hybrid tech, the motor is still less powerful than the updated K15C which makes 115hp.

Even the transmission options offered are either the old 4-speed torque converter automatic or 5-speed manual gearbox. But the Jimny 5-door gets Suzuki’s All-Grip Pro 4WD system with a manual transfer case and a low-range gearbox. The low-range gearbox has three modes, a 2WD High, 4WD High, and 4WD Low.

Gemini 5 Door has an approach angle of 36 degrees, breakover angle of 24 degrees and departure angle of 50 degrees. This will also make the 5-door version a capable off-road SUV as it sits 210mm off the ground.

Maruti Jimny: Exterior Design

Maruti has made sure that the addition of two doors and a stretched wheelbase don’t make the Jimny look less like a Jimny. The proportions are well-suited for an SUV and it looks quite mature and mature in 5-door form.

It sports the same design elements as the 3-door version with only an additional quarter glass in the side profile. The Jimny 5-door gets 15-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 195/80 section tyres. There are thick and straight pillars to maintain the vehicle’s traction.

The 5-door Jimny is 3,985mm long with a wheelbase of 2,590mm, while it is 1,645mm wide and 1,720mm tall.

Safety features on offer include ABS with EBD, 6 airbags, ESP with hill hold assist, hill descent control, and rear view camera.
