With prices expected to fall within the range of INR Rs 10 lakh to 12 lahks, Jimny aims to strike a balance between affordability and top-notch features.

Among the available trims, the Alpha variant has emerged as the preferred choice among customers, leading to Maruti Suzuki prioritizing its production. The Jimny offers a stunning range of colors, with Bluish Black, Kinetic Yellow, and Pearl Arctic White emerging as the most sought-after options. The Alpha trim boasts an array of impressive features, including auto LED headlamps, a 9-inch touchscreen, the SmartPlay Pro+ infotainment system, Cruise control, and an immersive Arkamys sound system. Safety is also prioritized with the inclusion of six airbags, ESP with a hill-hold assist, hill-descent control, a rear-view camera, and ABS with EBD.

Given the high demand and eager anticipation, it is expected that the waiting period for manual variants will extend up to six months post-launch, while the automatic variants may see a waiting period of up to eight months. Prospective buyers are advised to plan accordingly and make their bookings in advance to secure their desired Jimny model.
