Massive bookings for Suzuki Jimny, Fronx gets decent numbers too
New Delhi : In the Auto Expo 2023, Maruti Suzuki unveiled their three products – an EV concept eXV, an off-roader Jimny and then a sub-4 meter SUV Fronx. Now, when the bookings have been opened by the company for the latter two vehicles, people are showering their love on the two cars.
Till date, Jimny has bagged over 9,000 bookings and Fronx has managed to fetch 2500 bookings. High number of bookings for Jimny came despite Maruti having hiked the booking amount from an initial Rs 11,000 to Rs 25,000 over the past week. The Indian model of Jimny comes with a 5-door setup.
Compared to the rest of its Nexa compatriots, the Jimny is a more rough and rugged model featuring body-on-frame construction, an old-school boxy and upright design and a utilitarian cabin design. The model will go on sale in just two variants – Zeta and Alpha – both offered with manual and automatic gearboxes and four-wheel drive.
Meanwhile, Fronx is being loved by people who wants to own a SUV in a budget. The Fronx sports a design language owned by the company’s recently launched Grand Vitara but with a more coupe-like roofline reminiscent of the Baleno. The Fronx will have Maruti’s standard 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and the returning 1.0-litre Boosterjet turbo-petrol mill.
The company is yet to announce the price of both the cars.
