Maruti Suzuki has generated interest levels for quite some time these days about its plan of launching the eagerly awaited the Maruti Jimny, their entry-level SUV for the Indian market. Spokesperson had been quoted stating that Jimny is being brought to India because of poor performance of their Gypsy model. As the vehicle is about to be launched, Maruti Jimny is expected to get decent market share in SUV segment as SUV sales have been growing fast, be it luxury SUVs or ordinary ones. The SUV is being positioned between the Gypsy and the Grand Vitara and will provide competition to the leader in this segment, Mahindra, when launched. It is expected to be launched in diesel variant with 1.5L engines.
