I am quite confused with the Jimny Development , there is 3 Door and 5 Door version in plan , but as per my knowledge it is scheduled for 2022 and it will be produced locally. Production will start late Q2 or early Q3 2021 as some of the critical exterior and interior components are still under development and MSIL doesn't seems to be in a hurry. So Jimny currently under production in MSIL is probably for Export purpose which was brought here as CKD

5 years wait period? That's sheer madness. Suzuki maybe onto next gen Jimny by then. They had better roll out an EV variant. Why don't other manufacturers jump in on this madness and get their own version of Jimny out, to ride this craze?

If CKD kits assembled in India won't the price be higher than Thar?

Trial assembly of the three-door Jimny in India. Done on a line in Gurugram, similar to one used for the also body-on-frame Gypsy.

For 2021 New Year(Jan) surprise, Maruti Suzuki will display the Suzuki Jimny at Nexa showrooms close to You.

Three door Jimny will be assembled from CKD kits and will be a bit expensive, localization will be fast tracked for containing costs. If interest is tremendous for the 3 door Jimny the 5 door Jimny will be de-prioritized and come at a later date.

Maruti is looking at the viability of three-door in the wake of the success of the Thar. The three-door Suzuki Jimnys will begin reaching dealerships for displays in Jan 2021, and Maruti and Suzuki will be keen to know if the car can be sold here without the added expense and time needed to re-engineer the SUV as a five door.
50 units of the three-door Jimny have been assembled at Maruti Suzuki’s Gurugram facility from CKD kits imported from Japan.

Maruti to gauge market interest in the three-door Jimny after success of three-door Thar

Limited trial assembly done on kits imported from Japan.

Cars will be displayed at Nexa showrooms around India in January.

in India the Suzuki Jimny will go up against the Mahindra Thar, that’s also slated to go on sale as a five door later in its model life.

Thanks @Volkman10 for the positive inputs on the Suzuki Jimny.

I'm sure if this has the 1.5L P AT 4×4 priced around 10L ex-SR Jimny will have a long queue outside Nexa showrooms.

But in the provided link, nowhere is written that cars will be put on show in nexa showrooms next year. Its written that only 5 door jimny will come to India when it will be developed.
Please clarify.. I am not able to find where it is written that 3 door Jimny will come to nexa showrooms next year.

I don't know if the Jimny and Thar would belong in the same price bracket ? But if they did, everyone is probably waiting for a Thar v/s Jimny comparison

God bless competition !

Wait 5 years for the Jimny? Is Suzuki really struggling this bad?

I do wish they launch the Jimny here considering the popularity of SUVs. If India is the export market for the car, I hope we may see a structurally sound car with all safety features.

Picture the comparison like the Maruti Ciaz vs Honda City. Jimny will be the cheaper SUV with lesser power and features.

If you want the additional power, features, and more capability off road, you’ll pay the premium for the Thar.
