These are the shortcomings of Maruti Jimny
1. Some basic features are missing
Jimny is being described as Thar’s collision SUV, but some such features have been reduced in it, which are being found in budget hatchbacks and SUVs nowadays. The company has not given essential features like front armrest, rear armrest, bottle holder and headlamp washer and tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in it. Let us tell you that TPMS is also being given in entry level cars like Renault Kwid.
2. Less Powerful Engine
The Jimny comes with a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that outputs 134Nm of torque. This is well short of all the powertrains on the Mahindra Thar, which offer over 300Nm of torque. During offroading, the low-end torque helps you get through difficult terrains.

3. Lack of RWD in lower variants
Maruti Jimny has been introduced in two variants – Zeta and Alpha. The company is offering 4X4 drive system as standard in both the variants. Let us tell you that the rear wheel drive (RWD) system has not been given in any of its variants. Due to this, this SUV can become expensive in competition. Apart from this, for people who want to buy it for normal use, the 4X4 system will not prove to be much useful.
4. Lack of road presence
Being an SUV with 4X4 system and 5 doors, the Jimny has a lot less road presence than the Thar. This is because it has been made of compact size. In comparison, the Thar offers better road presence.
