While the international-spec Jimny is sold in a three-door avatar globally, Maruti Suzuki is offering it in only a five-door iteration, which will be sold via its Nexa showrooms, in our market. Even with the additional doors, the SUV is a sub-four-metre offering, making it eligible for lower taxation. The elongated wheelbase of the Jimny has led to opening up more legroom for rear occupants and a proper boot, inducing a sense of practicality for the Indian buyers.

The top-spec Alpha gets a few exclusive features including nine-inch infotainment, auto AC, auto-LED headlights with washer, and cruise control.
