Which SUVs will the Jimny rival?

The Jimny is sure to be a good choice for off-roaders, as it is more capable off the beaten track than the Monocoque-bodied SUVs. Though it may not match them for comfort and on-road driving manners, its off-road capabilities give it an edge over the likes of the Force Gurkha and the Mahindra Thar. The new-gen Gurkha and Thar come this year, and this could mean great things for the Jimny's off-road capabilities. With a strong off-road pedigree, the Jimny could prove to be a great choice for those looking for an off-road-ready vehicle.

Is the Maruti Suzuki Jimny a better value for money and practical choice compared to the Maruti Gypsy, Mahindra Bolero, and Mahindra Scorpio?
2023-01-14 05:02:00 AM

Gypsy and Jimny are both great options for those who are looking for an SUV that offers a balance of power and comfort. Jimny is a more modern and feature-rich option, with a powerful 1.5 litre K15B petrol engine and a host of safety and comfort features. It also has a better power to weight ratio and better off-road ability than the Gypsy.

On the other hand, the Gypsy has a more traditional design and is powered by a 1.3 litre G13BB petrol engine, delivering 81 PS of power and 103 Nm of torque. It is a good option if you want a value for money SUV and space for more passengers as it can seat up to 8 people.

When it comes to Bolero and Scorpio, they are best suited for desert regions, offering great performance and durability.

In conclusion, if you need an all-purpose SUV that can handle a variety of terrains, then either the Gypsy or Jimny would be a great choice. However, if you need a vehicle specifically for desert regions, then I would recommend the Scorpio or Bolero.

What is the mileage of a diesel engine for Maruti Jimny ?

We believe that Maruti Suzuki will likely not be launching the Jimny with diesel engine options as they are discontinuing diesel engines from 2020. The only way to verify this is to wait for Maruti Suzuki to officially reveal the Jimny for India. We expect the Jimny to offer a petrol engine option as this is now the new trend among automobile manufacturers.
