Suzuki Jimny 2018 Concept

Rumours were on rife that Suzuki will launch the Jimny SUV in the Indian car market, that didn’t happen. As a reminder, Suzuki had showcased the SUV at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo. Since then, it has been 5 years and everyone lost the hope of seeing this iconic SUV in India. If media reports are to be believed, India will be production hub for the next-generation Jimny and it will also be launched in India. The Made-in-India 2018 Maruti Suzuki Jimny is reportedly to be exported to select European markets, and North American and South East Asian markets. Few reports suggest that the India-spec Jimy could be named Suzuki Samurai or Gypsy.

It was speculated that the 2018 Maruti Jimny will be based on Suzuki’s new generation platform. This platform has been used to develop the Baleno and the new Swift hatchback. However, few reports suggest that the new model will be based on a ladder-frame platform. The new ladder frame chassis will help the car retain its robustness and off-road capabilities. The SUV is also expected to get an advanced ALLGRIP ‘pro’ system. In India, the new Jimny might come with a 1.0-litre Boosterjet turbocharged petrol engine that will also power the Baleno RS and the Vitara Brezza petrol.

Before we get into all the details about the next-generation Jimmy, let us give you a little bit of background about this car. The Jimny is a compact off-road SUV that has been into production for over 35 years now. The first generation Jimny model, LJ10 (Light Jeep 10) was launched in 1970, and the current global model is the third-generation model of the vehicle. For people not in the know, the popular Suzuki Gypsy is the long wheelbase version of the second-generation Jimny.

It will at least two years in the development and design of the new-generation Jimny, so we expect its debut towards the end of 2018 only. Since it will be developed in India, expect it to be launched in Europe and India at almost the same time.
