The Maruti Suzuki Jimny has long been promised to reach the Indian shores and the brand finally showcased the car at the 2023 Auto Expo. The Jimny joins the big list of Maruti Suzuki offerings in India. The Maruti Suzuki Brezza is one of the best sellers from Maruti Suzuki and the Jimny is expected to do the same. Let's see what are the differences between the Maruti Suzuki Jimny and Brezza.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny Vs Maruti Suzuki Brezza: Design

The obvious difference between the 2 is that the Brezza is an everyday compact SUV while the Jimny is a boxy SUV meant to go off-road. The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Brezza is 3,995mm long, 1,790mm wide and 1,685mm tall. The wheelbase is 2,500mm. The new Brezza is 45mm taller but all other dimensions remain unchanged from the earlier SUV. The five-door Jimny SUV measures 3,985mm in length (with spare tyre), 1,645mm in width, and 1,720mm in height with a wheelbase of 2,590mm. Moreover, it boasts a ground clearance of 210mm.

Based on the ladder-on-frame chassis, the key highlights of the Jimny include round LED headlamps, headlight washers, chunky cladding, fog lamps, a wrap-around grille section in black, square-shaped taillights located on the rear bumper, and 15-inch wheels.

On the outside, the 2022 Maruti Brezza features LED projector headlamps, twin L-shaped LED DRLs, a new grille with chrome inserts, fog lights, contrast-coloured skid plate, new front and rear bumpers, roof rails and new 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny Vs Maruti Suzuki Brezza: Powertrain

The Jimny gets a 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine that belts out 104PS and 134Nm of torque when paired with a five-speed manual or a four-speed torque converter sending power to all wheels via Maruti's AllGrip Pro 4x4 system with a low range gearbox.

The Brezza facelift gets the new 1.5-litre K15C petrol motor. This motor comes equipped with the DualJet tech which improves overall efficiency and driveability although power figures have dropped marginally by 2PS and 1 Nm to 103PS and 136.8 Nm. The mild-hybrid assistance will be standard across the range adding 3PS at 900rpm. The gearbox options are again the same as the MPVs, including a five-speed manual and the new six-speed torque-converter automatic.

Maruti Suzuki Jimny Vs Maruti Suzuki Brezza: Interior and Features

The Brezza facelift gets a sunroof, along with new features like the 9-inch Smartplay Pro infotainment screen, 8-speaker Arkamys audion, 360-degree camera, connected tech, ambient lighting, wireless charging and a head-up display. Other features are LED lighting all around, an auto-dimming inside mirror, keyless entry and start, climate control, auto headlamps, paddle shifter and cruise control.

The interior of the Jimny comes with a nine-inch SmartPlay Pro+ infotainment system, an Arkamys sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an engine start/stop button, and cruise control. The five-door Jimny features six airbags, hill hold and descent control, ABS, EBD, ESP, brake assist, and four speakers, among others.
