Chennai: Maruti Suzuki, the number one passenger vehicle exporter* for two consecutive years, has started exports of its much-loved off-roader, the Jimny 5-Door. The vehicle will be shipped to destinations including Latin America, Middle East, and Africa regions.
Unveiled at Auto Expo 2023, the Jimny 5-Door is manufactured exclusively in India. Jimny is a shining example of ‘Make in India, for the world’.

This lifestyle SUV has especially appealed to customers who enjoy off-roading experience through tough terrains. The India-manufactured Jimny 5-Door in our export portfolio will surely create excitement among our overseas customers. Aligning with the Government of India’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, our Company now exports an extensive range of 17 vehicles across segments.
