Can we say that Jimny is going to be new mini Gypsy. This will be a great hit as a successor to Gypsy if postioned that way.
I am interested and looking forward to it.

I love it ! Great option for city use, i hate driving hatchbacks and our xuv is too big for my daily use so this will be a perfect fit. Prefer the no nonsense boxy look. I just hope they price it right.

Overwhelming love is being given to this little Suzuki here!

Almost as if we are expecting it to be launched out here some time soon. Are we?!

If so, shutup and take my money already!

The black Jimny Sierra looks fabulous.

I am completely sold !

Is there any speculated launch date/period for India?

It would be really interesting to see the Toyota version of the Jimny Sierra. I hope Toyota does a modern version of the 40 Series Land Cruiser with their version of the Jimny. Wishful thinking !

This car seems to be getting better and better every time we see more and more pictures! I'm loving the flexibility with the cargo shown in the picture with the ladder etc.

Can we start a signature campaign for Maruti to bring this to India?

Do you guys honestly believe maruti will launch this in India. They didn't launch the previous Jimny, they could have modernized the Gypsy with coil spring, Ac (which suzuki already did at some point in markets elsewhere) but all of them went to deaf ears.

There were 2 instances in recent where Jimny was discussed with the Maruti Suzuki Management team.

1. Aug - 2016 - R. S. Kalsi Senior Executive Director, S& M

Name:  JM.JPG
Views: 5128
Size:  45.5 KB


2. March - 2108 - C. V. Raman – Senior Executive Director, Engineering

Quote:
Q -Our recent story about the next-gen Jimny – the next-gen Gypsy so to speak – got a lot of feedback and queries. Can we see a back-to-basics 4x4 in India anytime soon?

CVR: The issue for us is that globally the Jimny is a three-door vehicle – something that doesn’t work in India. At the end of the day, the Indian customer wants a 5-door vehicle for practical reasons. We’ve not been able to arrive to a definite conclusion. The feedback from the market has not been positive. What people want is a 5-door vehicle, which we don’t have. Also, the Jimny is a narrow vehicle, so width is also an issue. The current Gypsy is a wide-track vehicle. But, I think, from a lifestyle perspective, there is some potential.

With the upcoming emission norms, EV program, Toyota JV, etc. it would seem that Jimny / Gypsy(Sierra) would not come to India anytime soon( before 2020).

But going by the SUV trend and this is a niche product and is in Maruti Suzuki's radar this car will most probably launch here either by Maruti Suzuki or it would seek help of Toyota, as it is widely speculated that Toyota is likely to re-badge the Jimny for sale in US.

From the new "Jimny", the opening width is wider than the current model (① from 965 mm → 1,015 mm, ② from 920 mm → 995 mm), the ease of use such as loading and unloading is improved.

Speculated to get a soft top, LWB model base model. Could be specific to international markets. Release at a later date.

Dear Maruti, you're making enough money from the Swift, Dzire and Brezza. You can afford to launch a car that caters to a niche market. Please bring this to India as the new Gypsy. You can fit in the 1.2 K-series and the 1.3 MJD. I'm sure a lot of people will be waiting in line with their chequebooks.
