    Maruti has introduced the Jimny in the market with only a petrol-automatic or a petrol-manual powertrain option with standard AllGrip 4WD. Interestingly, Maruti has also confirmed that bookings are almost evenly split between manual and automatic gearbox-equipped models.

    Moreover, as we reported recently, Maruti will not introduce a 2WD variant of the Jimny.
