Made-in-India Jimny 5-door launched in Australia with ADAS

Maruti Suzuki’s 5-door Jimny SUV, which the carmaker began selling in overseas markets in October, is now available in Australia too. The Australia-spec version, named ‘Jimny XL,’ is a made-in-India product, though the model launched Down Under, as the country-continent is popularly known, comes with a key difference over its Indian counterpart.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny will come with 4X4 off-road features as standard in all variants. It will not offer any RWD option like its rival Mahindra Thar.

In India, the 5-door Jimny was launched in June at an ex-showroom price of 12.74 crore.
