Default Re: Jimny expected in 2011

the current Jimny is just 3695mm from its front bumper to rear bumper and its being currently sold across the world, even in RHD variant. its a ready made meal just waiting to be served and Maruti being already late in the Compact SUV catagory with a model of its own, can serve the Jimny on a platter.

it has a petrol as well as a diesel engine and compact enough to get the advantage of the new SUV taxation policy by the indian govt.

BUT, it comes with only two front doors and a rear hatch, which could be its draw back for the indian market, similar to what HT Gypsy had already faced with its front two doors.

Lets see if Maruti launchs its brand new xAlpha or brings in a tried and tested Jimny!

SUVs need of the hour for Maruti Suzuki: Nakanishi

http://www.zigwheels.com/news-featur...kanishi/15948/

Well time for Maruti to bring in Jimny which is ready made and just needs to be delivered at the right price with the right engines!

Small cars may be the company's forte but to increase or retain market share, it will have to introduce affordable UVs and SUVs says outgoing Maruti Suzuki MD and CEO, Shinzo Nakanishi

"The SUVs and multi-purpose vehicles segment has been growing very fast in India but we are not growing there. We need to have a stronger presence there. Having just the Ertiga is not enough. said Nakanishi.

Nakanishi has not dwelved on which UVs/SUVs can be brought here but the XA Alpha showcased at the 2012 Auto Expo may well be the answer to challenges from Renault Duster and the upcoming Ford EcoSport.

There was a news about a new Jimny to be launched in international market in 2017/18. Don't know whether the new Vitara Brezza will be launched as Jimny in international markets.
