When this thread updates everytime, I leave whatever I am doing to just see if new pictures have come of the car.

Now with the specs out, what caught my attention was '210' mm ground clearance, this keeps getting better and better.

Can someone please bribe their product managers and make them get this here?

Isn't there a way to collectively petition Maruti for this. Perhaps getting an online petition signed and sending it to their marketing head.

R.I.P Thar, if this does release in India.

It may not die away, but people who want a reliable off-roader with an actual roof from the factory and does not require the owner to become a mechanic and parts encyclopedia would definitely not consider the Thar as an automatic choice anymore.

The ones who want to be 'seen' in a "Jeep" (even if a copy) will still buy the Thar.

I am glad that in the new Jimny the front track is increased from 135.5 cms to 139.5 cms and rear track from 136.5 to 140.5. This will give it more stability at increased speed. I marvel at the capability of Jimny to penetrate deep into dense jungle through narrow rough roads even in mountainous terrain.

Default 3 Door C-SUV battle incoming! Buckle Up!

Fellow BHPIANS!

I write to you anticipating a battle that's brewing silently in 3 DOOR CSUV segment. Latest entrant Maruti Suzuki is going to be coming out all guns blazing with their new armory in JIMNY's avatar!

There's a storm coming Mr.Wayne!

I am certain our automotive industry is pointed in the correct direction and we enthusiasts are benefited out of the approach various manufacturers are planning their path out. Post the recent updates flooding the net on Suzuki Jimny, which looks absolutely stunning from all possible angles, I was thinking if MSIL has another success story being inscribed in their books already! No doubt, Jimny is a worthy successor of Gypsy in India in its Petrol Avatar with all the current gen bells and whistles. I'm not really sure if there's going to be a Diesel variant from Suzuki line up keeping in mind the 4x4 capable car being supported by the same old DDIS line up doesn't make any sense. However, I strongly believe MSIL can bring their new diesel mill upto speed with Jimny's 4x4 capability in the coming years.

With all this in mind, Force Gurkha 140 is prepping up to unleash to take on the competition by offering 140 HP 2.2-litre diesel engine with a new 5-speed gearbox engine and transmission sourced directly from Mercedes.

Looking at these 3 distinctively similar cars (more or less), they have a certain percentage of oomph factor in them. Albeit, Jimny and Force Gurkha have similar looks (retro style) that resembles Mercedes G-Wagon (Gurkha) in 3 door avatar, Thar is more Jeep inspired - This is IMHO!

When it comes to specifications, there's a lot of differences in the way the heart is implanted onto these legends;

Maruti Suzuki Jimny: Basic information

New Suzuki Jimny in 2018-2019suzukijimny_625x300_1529388221344.jpg

Expected Price: Between 6-8L Ex Showroom price
Powerplant: Expecting 1.5L Petrol - same engine debuting in Ciaz facelift in 2018 or chances they could stick to tried and tested 1.2L K-Series engine.
Transmission: 5 Speed Manual (Low range available for off-road)

Positives:
  • Strong brand name
  • Attractive looks & pricing
  • LED projectors
  • Airbags as standard which is a must these days
  • Auto AC
  • Cruise Control
  • Better looking interiors
  • After sales service which is always a '+' to MSIL customers
  • Most likely there should be an automatic that should be offer when it's launched here as seen in the scoop pics of the interiors with gear knob being a conventional autobox type
Not so good:
  • No Diesel variant as the competition it's heading towards has more displacement. Remember, No Replacement For Displacement
  • Yet to be launched, so drivability will remain as a question at this stage.
Mahindra Thar: Basic information

New Suzuki Jimny in 2018-2015mahindrathar01.jpg

Price: 6.47 - 9.25 Lakh Ex Showroom price (Cardekho)
Powerplant: 2.5L
Transmission: 5 Speed Manual

Thar has already made it's impression despite having it's own share of niggles.

TBHP has already reviewed Thar in 2015 facelift here

Since it's already been reviewed from head to toe with all the good and not so good factors mentioned, I will keep it to the point.

Positives:
  • Rugged looks that draws immediate attention
  • Strong 2.5L Diesel Mill with handsome torque
  • 4x4 ready anytime, anywhere
Not so good:
  • Reliability of Thar is a bit of a concern with niggles with respect to rusting that was reported on the forum by a fellow bhpian
  • Highly unstable upwards 100kmph
  • No safety equipment despite Thar getting a facelift in 2015
  • Cheap interior plastics
Force Gurkha Extreme 140: Basic information

New Suzuki Jimny in 2018-newforcegurkha3doorfrontpressimage.jpg

Expected Price: Upwards 9,00,000 Ex Showroom price
Powerplant: 2.2L CRDe
Transmission: 5 Speed Manual

Force Gurkha has not really garnered much of anyone's attention. However, it does have Merc's inspiration drawn to it to an extent. Not much to write about, however, while pulling up archives on the forum, I could find one of our bhpians test-drive review here

Positives:
  • I have heard of it's dependable off-roading ability
  • Mechanical update derived from Mercedes stable may give some push on the sales numbers to an extent
Not so good:
  • Reliability
  • No safety equipment I could gather information
  • Cheap interior plastics
  • Surprised to see the steering, AC vents and other plastics being shared with it's bigger commercial sibling Force Traveller
So, if at all, you were in the market, what would be your preference?

To me, I am an ardent fan of SUV's - But, budget constraint will put me in the realm of these rugged off-roaders who are worthy and does make way into your preference list.

So, if I go in search of either of these 3 door beauties, then my bet is now on the new stud in town, the JIMNY for the list of equipment list it has on offer supported by strong brand name and heart-melting looks. However, I will await for the official launch and review by our own mods.

If given a chance to opt either one of these three CSUVs, what would it be and why?

I've attached few pics of Jimny's pics sourced from web:

Is the fan following of Jimny going to reach new heights?

Bookings are brisk even without test drives or seeing the car. Some provinces in Japan reports bookings crossing 400 numbers.
Earliest deliveries to start in mid September.

One day delay is calculated to stretch the delivering to more than a week

Bookings done in the now could expect the deliveries crossing 6 months. Will Maruti Suzuki re-jig its portfolio to prioritize the 4 door Jimny for India?

Catching everyone's interest!

It is an important structure to refine the mechanism of Jimny who has inherited over 40 years. Torsional rigidity is 1.5 times by applying various ideas such as additional cross member , body mount , X member
from the conventional structure, but this area is a place to keep reading carefully around here, and during test drive It is also a place would like to experience.

There is a Jimny's cap (on the middle), a sticker (on the left), and an original badge (on the right), but among them there is a premonition that the sticker seems to have a premium

With Maruti Suzuki's priority is to release all its products compliant to BS VI with target end date of early 2020, Suzuki Jimny is not on priority now.

Eventually Jimny/ Gypsy will make it to India but not earlier than 2020.

In Japan Jimny/Sierra enters the Suzuki Arena!
