It hasn’t even been a full month since the country’s largest carmaker, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, started delivering its highly popular five-door lifestyle off-roader, the Jimny, and people have already begun modifying it. A few days ago, we shared with you a white Jimny that received the popular ENKEI Japan RPT1 alloy wheels. Well, the owner of the same Jimny has now decided to equip his little monster with a Rs 75,000 exhaust imported from Japan. According to the Achintya Mehrotra owner of the Jimny, this new exhaust has given it a deeper note and a peppier engine feel.
The video of the installation of this new imported exhaust by AM RACING on the new Maruti Suzuki Jimny five-door has been shared on YouTube by itsaviraltv on their channel. The presenter starts off the video by mentioning that they will be installing this exhaust at Silencer House in Delhi. The shop is known for creating and fitting some of the most amazing exhausts on various types of cars. They work on supercars, hatchbacks, and performance sedans, and have been featured on several YouTubers’ channels.
In the video, the presenter mentions that they have imported this Fujitsubo Exhaust system for their Jimny all the way from Japan, and it cost them Rs 75,000. The Fujitsubo exhaust is a popular aftermarket upgrade designed specifically for the Suzuki Jimny and has been fitted on many three-door Jimnys in international markets. The owner in the video then shows the exhaust and compares it to the stock exhaust system. He mentions that it is not a full-length system, rather just the end muffler, but it is much smaller than the stock exhaust.
This new exhaust from Fujitsubo has been engineered to optimize exhaust gas flow, resulting in reduced back pressure and increased horsepower and torque. By improving the vehicle’s exhaust efficiency, the Fujitsubo exhaust provides a noticeable boost in acceleration and overall performance. The presenter in the video mentions that the new exhaust now sounds a little growlier and has a deeper note than the stock exhaust. He adds that the exhaust also helps make the engine a little peppier.
The Maruti Suzuki Jimny is offered with a sole drivetrain option: a 1.5-liter four-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine, paired with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. The engine delivers a maximum power output of 104.8 PS and a maximum torque output of 134.2 Nm. The manual versions claim a fuel efficiency of 16.94 kmpl, while the automatic variants promise 16.39 kmpl. Suzuki’s AllGrip Pro four-wheel-drive system is standard across all variants.
In other Maruti Suzuki news, the company is on track to launch its most premium vehicle, the Maruti Suzuki Invicto, in the country. This new premium MPV will be based on Toyota’s highly popular MPV, the Innova Hycross. The launch date for the forthcoming Invicto is July 5, and bookings for the model have already begun. Currently, the reservation amount for the Maruti Suzuki Invicto has been set at Rs 25,000. The upcoming MPV will be powered by the same 183hp, 2.0-liter strong-hybrid powertrain mated to an e-CVT, like the Innova Hycross, while the entry-level trims are expected to get the 173hp, 2.0-liter petrol engine mated to a CVT.
