Enter from the the fish market side entry, take right turn and drive upto Mahindra showroom and then take left turn, enter the basement and park your car in basement 2 or 3. Take the elevator to the ground floor, come out of the reception lobby, turn left and you are at the entry door of this NEXA showroom.

This is absolutely hassle free. Do not park outside the fish market or the nursery area. My colleague got challan last week. Otherwise you can easily get parking below the Kalyan jewellers/ Bar-be-que Nation or Spencer/ MGF Toyota and then cross the road by walk.

Sorry mate, I am out of station for few days. Visited the dealership twice on Monday but there was no-show. Hope our other TBhpian friends will cover the display tomorrow and we will get all answers we are looking for. Meanwhile, with adequate active and passive safety features, and same lineage of the international version of Jimny; we hope our Indian 5-door version of Jimny would be a great true blue 4x4 SUV.

Thanks for the guidance. My SA just shared video of car being unloaded from trailer at Pasco. It was his whatsapp status message. I would have preferred to see some other color but it's same kinetic yellow which few people will buy. I will capture few pics tomorrow and share, but please don't expect high quality of photographs Jimny definitely stands apart from other cars. Some after market accessories like roof rail can make it look more macho than the toy look of kinetic yellow one. I will again go and check thar (showroom is right next door to Pasco Maruti). I am still indecisive between the two.

Re: Maruti Jimny 4-door @ Auto Expo 2023

Got this e-mail from my Nexa showroom, from the "quality manager" no less.

This is one of the most haphazard launch from Maruti I've seen in a long time.

Re: Maruti Jimny 4-door @ Auto Expo 2023

Got to see the 3 door version in person, liked the stance and compactness, would be ideal for city and occasional off roading. Waiting to test drive it.

Jimny 5 Door (possibly blueish black) spotted near Shimla. In my opinion, the color looks fantastic.

Re: Maruti Jimny 4-door @ Auto Expo 2023

@purohitanuj: Are you sure that this is Blueish Black? I guess this is the Nexa Blue variant. Those Jimnys which has a black roof is actually painted with the Blueish Black shade. If so, blueish black should be pitch black with some very slight shade/glitter of blue. Here in this case, Blue shade is clearly visible. So can we call it Blueish black? So confused with that? Any thoughts on this line? Eager to know...

Re: Maruti Jimny 4-door @ Auto Expo 2023

Based on the Team-BHP home page news item, if the pricing starts at 12 lacs, the top-end Alpha AT variant might get priced around 15-16 lacs. No?

In Hyderabad the on-road price might touch 20 lacs (considering it a second car). That is going to be very premium.

I think it is the blueish black ( fingers crossed as I have booked the same ).
The color in the video looks too dark to be nexa blue. Please see image below and let me know what you think. I could be wrong but I hope this is what I have booked as the color looks amazing.

The same Jimny was also spotted by motorbeam and they also claim it to be bluish black.

Both Nexa Blue and Bluish Black will have roof painted in same (respective) color making matter more confusing.

Re: Maruti Jimny 4-door @ Auto Expo 2023

Though it is a compact car, the Jimny's brochure mentions a turning radius of 5.7 meters! That is almost first-gen Thar territory. Not expecting a Wagon-R/Ignis type of ease in congested turns. Yet, it is a bit concerning for a daily driver.

Good observation. I too noticed this. Surprisingly, it is about the same as my Mitsu Montero .

This was expected from its fixed live axles at both ends.

Hope this has EPS to make life a little easy.
