The Maruti Jimny is nearing launch. But what's its safety rating? That's what everyone wants to know!

The Indian 5-door Jimny has not been tested by anyone yet. That will take quite some time.

But the 3-door Jimny - already being sold abroad - was tested by EuroNCAP, ANCAP and JNCAP

That's Europe, Australia, NZ and Japan. How much did it score in those crash tests?

Euro NCAP - 3 Stars ANCAP - 3 Stars JNCAP - 4 Stars

Overall, the 3-door Suzuki Jimny was praised for crash performance and safety equipment

But was criticised for lack of driver assistance features and pedestrian safety

The 5-door Jimny is exclusive to India, and crash tests usually happen several months after launch. We will just have to wait!

Official release will happen in May. Two variants for India - Alpha and Zeta. Both will have 4WD and AT, manual transmissions
