Jimny is the talk of the town ever since its launch in the Indian market and there are unique modifications available for the lightweight off-roading SUV.
In this post, a Brabus Kit is showcased for the Maruti Jimny to convert it into a Mercedes G-Wagon. Jimny is a lightweight off-roader that has a legacy of over 53 years. Initially designed for the defence forces, its practicality and ruggedness were appreciated by the regular public. As a result, it was launched for the masses after 1970. It has been a popular product ever since and finds itself in its 4th generation. However, many people like to modify it heavily to resemble the iconic G-Wagon. There are professional kits available for the Jimny to make it look almost like the G-Wagon. This is the latest example of that.

We have seen many iterations in the international market where the Jimny has been converted into a G-Wagon using this iconic kit. Apart from the dimensions, one can barely tell the difference between an original G-Wagon and the Jimny with this Brabus kit. This kit certainly lends a butch appearance to the Jimny along with an imposing road presence. The vlogger talks about the pricing as well. The price of this Brabus Kit is Rs 4 lakh.
What We Think
Jimny is a lifestyle off-roader that people generally buy to pursue their passion. Hence, it is quite common for them to take it to the aftermarket to get it modified. For such people, a proper kit like this could make a lot of sense, especially if budget is not an issue. However, one must consult the local RTO before making such heavy modifications. We say so because most such tweaks are prohibited in India. If you don’t wish to get involved with the cops and will use the SUV frequently, we suggest you stay away from such hardcore customizations and only opt for a few mild ones.
