Maruti Jimny has been reviewed by Car Blog India recently and the list of official accessories is a rather long one.
Here is the list of official accessories with the about-to-be-launched Maruti Jimny. It won’t be wrong to say that the Jimny is among the most anticipated SUVs in recent years. Maruti showcased it at multiple Auto Expos but the launch always eluded us somehow. Now we know that Maruti was waiting for the 5-door version for our market. Internationally, only the 3-door version is sold. But Indian customers want the utmost practicality for their buck. Hence, the 5-door version makes sense. At the recent media drive of the Jimny, MSIL also showcased the added accessories to make it look more adventurous than ever. Here are the details.

Maruti Jimny Official Accessories
There is a fair bit of accessories to customize the lightweight off-roader as per the needs of the buyers. All these elements are a part of the Summit Seeker kit that could have an indicative price of around Rs 30,000 to Rs 40,000 above the cost of the vehicle. This includes things like a rugged skid plate, metal elements on the bumper, fenders (front and rear), ORVMs, bonnet, attractive decals on the side door panels and bonnet, a sturdy side body moulding with Jimny moniker, a new glossy black spare wheel cover and roof rails and carriers (the latter two are not part of the accessory kit).

There is Suzuki’s trademark ALLGRIP PRO 4×4 drivetrain with a low-range transfer case and locking differential for hardcore off-roading capabilities.

What We Think
With an off-roading SUV like the Jimny, it makes sense to go for the official accessories since road presence is a huge part of the products in this category. Also, for hardcore off-roading enthusiasts, some of these accessories can actually be useful to protect the components of the Jimny. For instance, a rugged skid plate will safeguard the underbelly of the SUV. We must wait for the official price revelation of this kit to determine if it makes financial sense.
