Such a tempting product! It looks exactly how it should look, not dated but not tacky either. The face looks mature but not old. Kudos to the design team!

It has been mentioned this car will be produced in here in India too, then why aren't we seeing any buzz for it? They can just call it the new Gypsy, and it wont even need a marketing campaign to get the hordes throwing money at Suzuki showrooms

I am of strong opinion that this vehicle will revive the Gypsy enthusiasts. The Gypsy has a huge fan base and the fact that it is now available only on order and delivery time ranging from anything between 1- 6 months, makes a 4x4 vehicle available at dealerships a sweet deal.

New images surface in Japanese media,

Japan's Best Car magazine, which claim to be the final design of the upcoming Jimny.

The exterior shot shows a very boxy and old-school-styled three-door off-roader – looking very much like the vehicles spotted in the holding yard earlier this week.

Quote:
Meanwhile, the dash image (above) indicates the 3D rendering is rather accurate, blending retro squared-off design elements with more contemporary Suzuki components – the latter including the steering wheel, driver's instrument display, climate control dials with LCD inner displays, along with the 7.0-inch touchscreen seen on other models in the company's line-up.

Have this on my radar. I pray and hope that there is a 5 door India-specific version as well. Will be a perfect little go-anywhere vehicle.

Suzuki Jimny seems to get the following:

- Projector headlamp
- Automatic Brake (dual sensor brake)
- Turn indicators on ORVM

- Inter-cooler ?

Specs expected shortly.

This looks like the rally car which Jackie Chan is driving in 'Who am I'.



Also, the Jimny needs a bull bar which wraps around the headlight like the old sumo's pronto, will make it look even hotter. This should launch in India, I think Maruti dealers will be hounded with hour long queue's if this come to India, Maruti come on, get this here please!

I have hardly seen Ignis on highways and a minimal presence in cities like Bangalore / Chennai yet they continue to offer, I wouldn't be surprised if they launch this via NEXA as a lifestyle product.

Ignis sells an average of around 4000 cars a month. Which is a very respectable figure, unless we bring the other Maruti stalwarts into comparison.

Whereas the Jimny might sell in a couple of hundreds. However - I'd still like it if they offer the car on order or something, considering the minimum investments required as it is already manufactured here anyways.

Photos looks great however the pricing is key. Waiting and hoping for that Jimny launches with both versions. Looking for a replacement for my 11 year old Swift.

This thing is going to be epic!

They are literally like the cockroaches of the vehicle world; go anywhere and survive anything.

Im sure it's going to be disappointing for a lot of our Team-bhp brothers and sisters to hear this, but I'm quite sure that it won't come in a 5 door model. Its meant to be a pure off-roader and by lengthening the chassis to fit extra seats and doors, you reduce the break-over angle significantly. Just my thoughts.
