Hi, I'm Tejen. I was born and brought up in a small town of Haryana. However, from the day of my birth and until now, I've always lived around cars and motorcycles. More than passion, the automotive world is my only lifestyle. It's the connection to the vehicle that delivers me peace. However, when it comes to a choice; my instinct leads me towards motorcycles.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny - No Rear Wheel Drive Option?

Jimny is a well-established & renowned off-road machine globally. It was much-awaited to be launched in India as well. However, Maruti decided to tweak the global 3-door model for India. Hence, a 5-Door version debuted in the global market. But, the intentions of the 5-Door versions are the same as the 3-Door version. Maruti intended not to fiddle or compromise with the off-road capabilities of the Jimny. Hence, despite of the elongated chassis, the new Jimny promises to be equally capable as the 3-Door version. In fact, Maruti's officials also claimed during the media drive that they could've extended it further but they didn't want to compromise its off-road capabilities.

Online reports and unofficial statements from the company have also revealed that Jimny will not get a 2WD powertrain option. Meanwhile, its direct rival i.e. Mahindra Thar comes with an affordable RWD variant. But, Maruti has no plans as such. As per the company, it'll hinder the off-road capabilities of the Jimny as well as leave a dent in its image; if Maruti made a 2WD variant. Speaking of the 4X4 powertrain, Jimny uses the 1.5-lt K15B engine that makes a peak power of 103 bhp. This power is mated via Suzuki AllGrip Pro to all four wheels. Additionally, it comes with a manual as well as automatic transmission options.
