India-bound 5-door Suzuki Jimny spied undisguised

The 5-door Jimny is likely to make its debut around July 2022.

Maruti Suzuki has already started manufacturing the 3-door Jimny in India, but it’s the 5-door version that will be introduced in the Indian market. The car has now been spotted completely undisguised, but the spy images come from a rather unlikely source – Google Street View.

The 360-degree camera atop a Google Street View car spotted a 5-door Jimny without camouflage somewhere in Japan. It measures just under 4 meters in length and has a wheelbase of 2.55 meters. The 5-door version weighs 1,190 kg, and its ground clearance is 210 mm.

Reports suggest the 5-door Jimny could be offered with a 1.4-litre, mild-hybrid, turbo-petrol engine. However, in India, Maruti could offer the mild-hybrid system only as an option. The Jimny is also expected to come with a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol unit that is likely to be mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.
