Pictures of the production model of Maruti Suzuki Jimny SUV came out, the company started exporting
There is good news about Maruti’s much awaited SUV Maruti Jimny. In late December last year, it was reported that Maruti Suzuki has started assembly at its 3-door variant Jimni plant in Gurugram, while now the company has started exporting it. The company has sent its first shipment of 184 units from Mundra Port to Latin American countries such as Colombia and Peru.
In a statement issued to the stock exchange BSE, Maruti has stated that the export of the gymnas has begun and the 3-door gymnas will be exported to Latin America, West Asia and African countries. The current generation Gymnée was launched in 2018. It was also mourned at last year’s Auto Expo.
Specifications of Jimney
The Gymni gets a 1.5 liter K15B Naturally aspirated petrol engine, this engine gives 105 hp power and 138 Nm of torque. Apart from the Vitara Brezza, the company is also offering this engine in the Ertiga, Ciaz and S-Cross. Due to the ladder frame, the position of the engine in it will have changed, which will give power to its rear wheels. At the same time, the Jimini launched in India can be offered with the standard 4×4 system like the Thar. In addition to the 5-speed manual transmission in the Gymni, there is also a choice of 4-speed torque converter automatic.

Height: 1,720 mm
No launch date has yet been set for Jimini in India. Earlier it was believed that it would be launched in 2020, later reports were reported that it could be introduced in 2021. But the company refused. At the same time, it is expected that the company will launch it next year.
The Gymni will be a 5-door version to be launched in India and will have separate luggage space. Company sources say that 3-door version trains are not much preferred in India. He says that most Indians do not consider them practical. This is the reason why there is no significant demand for 3-door version of vehicles in the Indian market.
The new gymni will be in the sub-4 meter SUV segment. It will compete with Mahindra Thar, which will be five-door and currently work is on. In India, the fourth generation gymnas will also be competing with the second generation gymnas in India, ie Maruti Gypsy, which is currently being built for the military.
