It is expected that an extended modification will appear in 2022 or 2023

The Indian company Maruti Suzuki is going to bring to the home market a five-door modification of the compact SUV Jimny (now the model is available only with a three-door body). It is expected that the new product will be presented in 2022 or 2023.

According to the publication GaadiWaadi, the growth in demand for SUVs in India, despite the general decline in sales, prompted Maruti to think about expanding the lineup, which now mainly consists of hatchbacks.

The company’s management plans in the next two to three years to bring to the market several new models at once in different price categories. Also, some of the existing cars are slightly modified to look like SUVs.

It is assumed that the length of the five-door Jimny will not exceed 3999 millimeters. This is due to tax breaks, which, according to Indian laws, apply to cars shorter than four meters. If the SUV is longer, it simply ceases to be beneficial to customers.

According to the publication, if the company really decides to launch a five-day modification of the Suzuki Jimny on the Indian market, we can expect the cost of about a million rupees.
