The 5-door Suzuki Jimny will be 3,850 mm long, 1,645 milimet wide và 1,730 mm tall. This makes it 300mm longer than the 3-door Jimny, although the width and height remain unchanged.

There is still no confirmation on whether the Maruti Suzuki Jimny will be sold in India, given that this is expected lớn be a niche offering by Maruti Suzuki"s standards. Although with local production beginning in a similar spec to other Maruti Suzuki offerings, and a more appealing five-door version in the works, the chances for an Indian launch for the Jimny look quite strong. If launched, we expect the Suzuki Jimny 5-door lớn be priced above the Vitara Brezza.
