Maruti Suzuki Jimny Bags 15,000 Orders: Top 5 Reasons Why Indians Are Going Gaga Over It

Maruti Suzuki Jimny

Maruti Suzuki Jimny is certainly bagging a lot of anticipation from Indian enthusiasts. The 5-door off-roader certainly has a lot on its sides, including two extra doors than all of its rivals. Furthermore, the reliability and ease of ownership, the Maruti Suzuki badge brings along is what Indian buyers swear by. After all, Maruti Suzuki is topping the sales chart for a long. The company has bagged over 15,000 orders for the Jimny, and the price announcement for the Jimny is expected to happen sometime in April. Any clue for the price range makes no sense right now, since the Jimny is a one-of-its-kind vehicle – compact, capable, and of course, cute. Well, we too, are not very much aware of the launch date and price, but we do know what is making so many people book the Jimny.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny: Safer Than Rivals?

Based on a robust ladder-frame platform, the Jimny also packs in a host of safety features, even in the base-spec trim. The Jimny gets a total of 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP, hill-start assist, hill descent control, rear parking camera, pre-tensioners and load limiters for seat belts, seat belt alarm, high-speed alert, ISOFIX child seat anchors, and side impact beams.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny: Segment-leading Features

Well, the Jimny will go against the Mahindra Thar and Force Gurkha, and both of them are feature-loaded, but the Jimny has a better feature list. The Jimny is equipped with headlamp washers, LED headlamps, a 9-inch touchscreen display, and wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay. Last but not the least, the sound system on this off-roader is tuned by Arkamys.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny: Most-practical Off-roader?

With two extra doors than Thar and Gurkha, Maruti Suzuki Jimny unarguably scores the highest marks for rear-seat accessibility. Furthermore, the seats can be reclined to make a bed for two. Also, with all seats up, it gets a boot space of 208 litres. While the figure is small, the boot space is squarish and can swallow a couple of bags with ease. Also, the ingress and egress for both rows are very easy.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny: No Compromise on Capabilities

Maruti Suzuki Jimny is fitted with solid axles on both ends, which is a combination too rare to spot these days. With coil spring, it has some articulation to take the washed-off trails. Brake-locking axles are icing on the cake we’d say. Talking of specs, the off-roader gets a ground clearance of 210 mm, which is too much for a car with a wheelbase of just 2,590 mm. And, the break-over angle here is 24 degrees. To climb a near-flat-faced mountain, the Jimny has an approach angle of 36 degrees and a departure angle of 50 degrees.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny: It Is a Looker!

By the books, SUVs have got to be boxy and badass in terms of looks. The Jimny does the same. How? With a high-set bonnet, a flat face, and an upright stance, the Jimny feels every bit like an SUV. The a-pillar is almost upright. Also, the roof is flat and comes with rain gutters. The latter is an old-school touch and adds character. The spare wheel is mounted on the tailgate. Old-school charm is preserved with the help of lift-type door handles, circular headlamps and rectangular bumper-mounted tail lamps. Ohh, the antenna is fixed on the rear-right corner of the corner – making it look a little quirky.
