The price range of the Maruti Suzuki Jimny will be announced in the coming weeks and it derives power from a 1.5L K15B petrol engine
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) will launch the Fronx compact SUV coupe next in the domestic market and it will be followed by the official price announcement of the Jimny lifestyle off-road SUV. The five-door Maruti Suzuki Jimny will compete against the upcoming five-door Mahindra Thar and five-door Force Gurkha and its price invoice has been leaked online.
The assessable value of a car typically involves the transaction value not influenced by the relationship between the buyer and the seller. It is the sum of the vehicle cost, insurance, transport and handling charges. The invoice suggests that the assessable value of the Maruti Suzuki Jimny is Rs. 9,41,866 and considering the GST taxes, it comes to around Rs. 1,31,861.
Another entry in the invoice is Rs. 1,60,117 and the final price noted is Rs. 13,65,705. Considering other relevant taxes and registration charges, the on-road price of the upcoming SUV could be around Rs. 16-16.5 lakh. By the looks of it, Maruti Suzuki will likely pitch the five-door Jimny squarely against the existing three-door Mahindra Thar 4WD version.
