According to a report by Autocar India, the dimensions of the Maruti Suzuki Jimny have also been leaked. The report suggests that the Jimny will be 3850mm in length, making it shorter than Baleno and Brezza. With this length, the Jimny will be closer to Maruti Suzuki Swift in terms of length. However, the wheelbase is considerable at 2550 mm. The five-door version is expected to get more boot space compared to the three-door variant.

We also get a glimpse of the interiors. The steering wheel of the SUV is round and looks similar to what we have seen in previous Maruti Suzuki cars. The dashboard is also all black with no colour inserts of any kind. The version spotted in the spy pictures had an automatic transmission.

Maruti Suzuki is expected to reveal the five-door Jimny to the Indian audience at the Auto Expo 2023 and it might launch the vehicle in the following months. The SUV launching in India is expected to feature the 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine that also does duty in the new Brezza 2022. However, Maruti might also launch a 1.2-liter engine option to benefit from the reduced taxes on sub-4m cars.
