The Maruti Suzuki Jimny has started reaching dealerships, hinting at an imminent launch. Bookings for the SUV are currently open.
Lifestyle vehicles, more so off-roaders are picking some pace on the sales tally in our market. The Mahindra Thar has proved its mettle, and now, 2023 Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-door is ready to reignite this segment for the good. The SUV was showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this year, and it has garnered over 30,000 bookings since its unveiling. The company hasn’t confirmed its launch date yet, but the Jimny has started reaching the Nexa dealership. A recent YouTube video from OyeArjun gives a glimpse of the exercise, showing the Jimny being unloaded and parked inside the dealership.
This is the first dealership in the country to showcase the Jimny to the masses. This Nexa dealership is located near Sikanderpur Metro Station in Gurugram, Haryana. The host has also mentioned the contact details of the dealership in the video description.
2023 Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-door: Design
Cute, compact, and capable are the words that came to our mind when we first saw the 2023 Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-door. It might not have the road presence of a Thar, but it does have the road presence that a stock Gypsy had. With a boxy design, things are largely upright. And, the Jimny is designed using a scale, except for its headlamps, which are circular in shape. Overall, the design looks appealing, and there will be a multitude of colour options too.
