Maruti Suzuki Jimny-
Maruti has recently introduced its 4 *4 Jimny in the Indian market. This car is an affordable car for a middle-class family who always wants a car like an SUV. The Maruti Suzuki Jimny is a simple, affordable, no-nonsense off-roader car. Maruti always faces criticism for its built quality, but in Jimny, the quality of the structure is totally different from rigid and good quality steel. The car is basically from Nexa outlet so the features will gonna be totally premium. Maruti has also done a great job by changing its frame to Ladder-on-frame, which is similar to Mahindra’s frame. Let’s talk about the other details-
