The Jimny has garnered some serious interest in the country. People were dying to see the Jimny in India and Maruti fulfilled that wish by unveiling the Jimny at the Auto Expo. The car launched in the country is the 5-door variant which is specially made keeping in mind the Indian market. Maruti has already raked in 3000 bookings, but what about its price? In today’s article, let’s talk about the Maruti Jimny price.
As stated, Maruti only unveiled the Jimny 5-door at the Expo! However, it has opened the bookings for the Jimny 5-door with a booking amount of Rs 25,000. The Jimny 5-door comes in two variants – Zeta and Alpha in Manual and automatic options. So what about the pricing? We think Maruti will want to price the Jimny 5-door below the Rs 10 lakh mark to rival the Mahindra Thar 2WD. So we expect the Zeta manual to start from Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Its automatic could be 1.5 lakhs more expensive considering other Nexa cars. While the Alpha variant could start from Rs 13 lakh (ex-showroom). So we expect the pricing of Jimny to range from Rs 9.99 lakh to somewhere 14.5 lakhs (ex-showroom).

Maruti Jimny price – Design
The overall silhouette of the 5-door Jimny is similar to the 3-door version. So we have a boxy design with no sharp cuts. At the front, we have circular headlamps with the iconic grille and near-flat bonnet design. From the sides, we can see the extended length and wheelbase. The spare tyre is mounted on the rear door. Tail Lamps are placed on the bumpers.
The Jimny 5-door comes with the older K15B petrol engine that powered the pre-facelift Baleno, Brezza etc. This engine is capable of producing 101bhp and 130Nm of torque. It remains to be seen if this engine would be enough for a car like the Jimny 5-door. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic. Staying true to its roots, the Jimny comes with Maruti AllGrip Pro (4×4) technology with a low-range transfer gear.
Maruti Jimny price – Interior & features
The Jimny is geared towards true-off-road enthusiasts and it can be seen in the interiors. Though Maruti has given the Jimny a decent amount of features, we can spot hard plastics in the entire cabin. What about the features? We have a 9-inch SmarPlay Pro+ infotainment, ARKAMY’s sound system, cruise control, all power windows and Suzuki connect. Safety features include a 6-airbags, ABS with EBD, hill descent control and rearview camera etc.
