Maruti Suzuki Jimmy is one of the most anticipated cars in the Indian market. Now, it has been potted with full swag.
Car enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Maruti Suzuki Jimmy in India. Currently, the Indian model is in the development stage. However, an imported model has already arrived in the country. Apparently, the Maruti Suzuki Jimmy has been imported from Dubai through Carnet for a limited duration. The new off-roader is a direct rival of the Mahindra Thar. New images of the Maruti Suzuki Jimmy and Mahindra Thar 3-Door side-by-side show the difference between the stances and road presence of the two cars. Let’s take a close look!

As you see in the above images by Cyrus Dhabhar, the Suzuki Jimny and Mahindra Thar compliment each other. These are the first images that show the two off-roaders parked side-by-side. Both SUVs display a rugged appeal and feature an upright and boxy stance. Both cars get flared wheel arches, tough-looking front/ rear bumpers, a tailgate-mounted spare wheel, blacked door handles, rearview mirrors, and chunky-looking alloy wheels with off-road spec tires.
The three-door green-colored Suzuki Jimny looks smaller than the Thar. However, it has similar dimensions (length, width, and height) ratios. On the other hand, the three-door grey-colored Mahindra Thar features a more proportionate-looking side profile. Additionally, the Mahindra Thar has more feel of a chopped-off SUV from the rear, when compared to the Jimny. Overall, both cars look similar. However, the Maruti Suzuki Jimmy is slightly smaller than the Mahindra Thar 3-Door. It remains to be seen if Jimny can take on Thar in the market.
