Maruti Suzuki Jimny: Maruti Suzuki India grabbed headlines in a big way at the Auto Expo 2023. The company unveiled the 5-door Jimny and Franks coupe SUVs on January 12, after which bookings for both started. The funny thing is that in just 5 days the bookings for the Jimny have crossed 5 thousand. Its waiting period has now reached above 3 months. That means customers will now have to wait for 3 months for delivery after launch. Maruti Jimny is being seen as a competitor to Mahindra Thar, which is the most popular off roader SUV in India.
The 5 door Jimny is one of the most iconic cars from the company and has been on sale since the 1970s. Currently its fourth generation has been launched in India. It will be sold in 2 models Zeta and Alpha. Both these models come with the K15B 1.5L petrol engine, which produces 103 bhp power and 134 Nm torque.
