Maruti Jimny 5-door won’t get the latest K15C petrol engine

The Maruti Jimny 5-door is likely to be offered with the K15B engine paired with mild-hybrid tech.

According to a media report, the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-door will be offered with the older K15B petrol engine in India.

The 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine is currently offered in the Jimny 3-door and produces 101 BHP and 130 Nm. The same, is expected to be carried over to the 5-door version, albeit with a mild-hybrid system.

The Jimny 5-door will be available with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. Maruti’s new 6-speed automatic, however, is unlikely to make it onto the Jimny.

That being said, Suzuki’s All Grip Pro all-wheel drive system will be available in both manual and automatic versions. It has three modes – two-wheel drive high, four-wheel drive high and 4-wheel drive low designed to tackle the roughest of terrains.

The Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-Door is expected to debut at Auto Expo 2023. It will compete with the Mahindra Thar.
