Maruti Suzuki is going to launch about 7 new or refreshed models in India in coming two years and one of these can be an adventurous small SUV called Suzuki Jimmy. Maruti Suzuki Jimmy is a small SUV which is currently sold in Japan in a two door version. For India, Jimmy will undergo a 4 door change with fully covered permanent roof with air conditioning and heating for drive comfort along with the rigidness of an SUV.  This mini SUV from Maruti’s stable may features a 1.3 Litre diesel engine currently which will be fitted in the Maruti SX4 Diesel which is due for launch in January 2011. Globally Jimmy is sold with a 1.3 Litre petrol engine and 1.5 Litre Diesel with a 4×4 drive and both automatic and manual transmission variants are available.

Maruti Suzuki Jimmy will give a strong competition to Mahindra Thar SUV launched recently. Jimmy is light in weight compared to Thar and is also closed unlike Thar with a soft roof. Though it does not looks as retro and adventurous like Thar, yet it is expected to give a tough competition to Thar. With these kind of Mini-SUVs coming from auto majors like Mahindra and Mahindra and Maruti Suzuki, Indian buyers will have more choices and in future more such products can be expected from other mainstream auto manufacturers.

  1. Most of the SUVs sold in india are of very large size as well as costly. There is a vaccum for a fuel efficient compact SUV in india. Maruthi can use Ritz platform for the purpose. Indians use SUVs not for the performance, but for the look. There should be Diesel option also. Iam sure it will be sold in large numbers. In fact I am waiting for the same as a replacement for my Wagon-R. Hope, Maruthi will launch the same in 2011 itself.

  2. Maruti need to have the optional AT also for Jimmy in India. This will add merit to their foray into small SUV sector & will be hugely successful. Await Maruti’s confirmation on this.

  3. Most of the SUVs sold in india are of very large size as well as costly. There is a vaccum for a fuel efficient compact SUV in india. . I am sure it will be sold in large numbers. In fact I am waiting for the mini suv with prise around 5.o lac and should be fuel efficient(disel) that is todays requirment.

  4. jimmy size is perfect minimum, ground clearence 210mm 4 wheel drive, diesel version rear seat should be front facing 2- door will do price must be near by 5 lacs. this is requured for mass indian public those living rural and semi rural area if a hood version can be lanuched and rates can be downed than the indian farmars can also think for jimmy

  5. there is a strong need for a mid-sized suv in the Indian market. a suv like toyota Rush/Bego, the small-sized Suzuki’s vitara/jimmy or from any other company costing around 8 to 10 lakhs on the road with higher ground clearance which can be used by a small nuclear family for the city where parking is an issue and the country side. could be either two door or four door version. Small size is the essence here with both petrol and diesel versions and having euro-3 or 4 safeguards.

  6. Eagurly waiting for jimny. Wanted to buy a small sized ,fuel efficient suv for a nuclear family for in city use and for field use . should have the minimum , an A/C, powered stearing, 4*4 drive.

  10. I want to buy petrol suzuki jimmy mini suv. Please inform us.
    i am waiting for your reply.

  11. Hello Aninda,

    Unfortunately it does not seem like Maruti is thinking of launching the Jimmy SUV in India anytime soon. The demand for a petrol powered SUV is almost non-existent. Maruti would only launch the Jimmy here after they develop/find a suitable diesel engine for it. But there is no information on any such plans as of now. We will notify you when we get any information of the same.

    Hope this helped.
