The five-door Maruti Jimny has been spied yet again, but with its soon-to-be arch rival, the Mahindra Thar. Not only that, but even the Maruti Grand Vitara has been spotted alongside. The three cars were spied in Leh Ladakh, where the Jimny would have been undergoing terrain testing.

We can see the grown length of the SUV, to accommodate the extra doors as the global-spec Jimny is a three-door model. However, the Thar still manages to look more dominating from what we can see here. The Grand Vitara has been seen testing with the Jimny, which is the only AWD Maruti in India currently. The strong-hybrid SUV could be used here to compare its off-road capabilities against the Jimny.
