The 5-door version of the Jimny is new and hasn’t been tested yet, but the 3-door version has.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny 5-door will soon make its global debut in India. The highly-anticipated SUV with three doors has been on sale all over the world, and India even sends it to many other countries. Before the Jimny hits the Indian market for real, we take a look at how safe it is. This is the 2018 Suzuki Jimny that Euro NCAP used to test safety. ANCAP (Australia) and JNCAP (Japan) also tried it out (Japan).
Euro NCAP gave the 2018 Suzuki Jimny a 3-star rating after they tested it. The mini SUV got a score of 73% for safety for adults and 84% for safety for children. This is mostly because the car doesn’t have advanced safety features like automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and monitoring for blind spots. Also, the Jimny was criticized for not protecting pedestrians well and for having a weak body structure that can cause a lot of damage in a crash.
ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program) and JNCAP (Japan New Car Assessment Program) have also tested the car (Japan New Car Assessment Program). It got the same 3-star rating for adult safety from both ANCAP and JNCAP, but it got a 4-star rating from JNCAP. People liked the car’s crash performance and safety features, but they didn’t like how it protected pedestrians or how it didn’t have any features to help the driver.
Made in India model yet to be tested
Since a long time ago, Suzuki has been making the Jimny in India. But the car for India hasn’t been tried out yet. The three-door Jimny is sold all over the world, including in Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. The car hasn’t been tested by any NCAP yet, so we can’t say anything about how safe or safe it is.
The only version of the Maruti Suzuki Jimny that will be sold in India will have 5 doors. India will be the first place where the Jimny with five doors will be sold. All versions of the car will come with the basic safety kit, which includes two airbags.
The all-new Jimny is being sold as an off-roader, and people have been very interested in it. Already, there is a lot of interest in the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Jimny, and close to 25,000 reservations have been made.
The Maruti Suzuki Jimny is expected to come out in May 2023. It will be available in two versions, called Zeta and Alpha. Both of these models will have Suzuki’s AllGrip four-wheel-drive system and a 1.5-liter gasoline engine with 104 PS. You can choose between a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic one.
The new Fronx will soon be available on the Indian market. The Nexa dealerships will sell a mid-size crossover that has already gotten a lot of attention. Stay tuned to Cartoq on April 9 for our review of the car’s first drive.
