Suzuki's next Gen Jimny comes after 19 years! To debut at the Tokyo Auto fair in late 2017.

In India it is likely to be shown - Auto Expo 2018.

The reason why I feel so is summarised below:
Ha!
Yes I saw my first Jimny in Dubai in 1999-2000.
Then saw many in Europe 2002-2003-2004 and of course in many other countries and continents like Mauritius, USA, UK, Ireland, Australia and S E Asia etc in the course of my gallivanting about. Always loved the vehicle. Always a head turner for me.
It was even showcased in the Koramangala Bangalore Indoor Stadium in 2004. I remember asking the blunderbusses of Maruti who were there, whether they would let me buy it! Of course I got sent off rapidly with egg on my face!
Recently went to the Dubai Showroom and saw it again. Lovely lovely little Jeep.
Just perfect for a small family. Anyone buying an Ignis or WagonR or EcoSport or indeed any of these hatch back cars in India, can easily consider it.
But then, as always, our market is one that prefers Form over Function, as I ve lamented for many many years.
But no harm dreaming a bit!

Same thing about their beautiful little 2 door Vitara with 4WD and all the bells and whistles. So common abroad. So unattainable here! So unutterably sad that Maruti don't believe that we poor hungry "Kitna Deti Hai" driven, Indian people need/ want such vehicles.

I am sure this is not a photograph of the actual model, but just an artistic render. Your earlier post: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/intern...ml#post4128168 (Rumour: New Suzuki Jimny in 2018) also has this image.

Also, this image also is not in conformance with this earlier scoop picture.

This looks like someone let loose the Mahindra design team at the Suzuki studio! Check out the ORVMs- look like KUV100, the grille looks like the Ingenio etc!

Any NEW RELIABLE information on the phantom Indian Jimny, the car that never was. I lived in Nepal for 2 months awhile back. Jimny was there. Great little vehicle.
