Maruti Suzuki has unveiled the Jimny Thunder Edition in India, introducing a more affordable variant of its popular compact SUV. Priced at Rs 10.74 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), this edition significantly reduces compared to the previous starting price of Rs 12.74 lakh, making the Jimny even more appealing to a broader audience.
The Thunder Edition is available in two variants, Zeta and Alpha, and features distinctive cosmetic changes to set it apart from the standard model. Sporting a Thunder Black exterior colour, the vehicle boasts red accents on the grille, fog lamps, and rear bumper. It rides on black alloy wheels and showcases Thunder Edition decals on the side fenders, adding a touch of exclusivity to its design.
Under the hood, the Jimny Thunder Edition retains its mechanical prowess, powered by the same 1.5-liter petrol engine that delivers 103bhp and 134Nm of torque. The engine comes paired with a choice of either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission, ensuring a versatile driving experience.
