Hi Mr. Robert,
This is in regards to your query posted on the website CarDekho.com, we would like to inform you that Maruti Jimmy is a four seater SUV, the car is expected to be launched by August,2011.
The first concept of the Jimny was a two door four seater SUV, however as of now Maruti Suzuki hasn't unveiled the production variant, so it is difficult to tell that the final production will be a 4 or 5 seater.
As of now, there is no official announcement from Maruti regarding Jimny's launch. So, still its unconfirmed about the transmission and drive. Stay tuned to CarDekho for more updates on the same.
