Maruti Suzuki's latest teaser: It's not the Jimny

The 5-door version of the Jimny is expected to debut in 2022. It will take on the upcoming Mahindra Thar 5-door.

Last week, Maruti Suzuki had released a teaser on Instagram with the hashtag #SUVForAdventure. This led to speculations that Maruti might be gearing up to launch the Jimny. However, the excitement was short-lived.

Maruti Suzuki has released a third teaser which confirms that it was about the S-Cross and not the Jimny.

That said, Maruti does intend to launch the Jimny in India. Initially, we could get the 3-door version, followed by a 5-door version, which is expected to debut in 2022.

In India, the Jimny will likely be powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder K-Series petrol engine producing 101 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 130 Nm @ 4,000 rpm. The engine is likely to be paired with a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The Jimny will lock horns with the Force Gurkha and the Mahindra Thar.
