I'm sure some have already seen the latest news/spy shots on the 5 door.

What they need to do is give us one that can tow properly like 2000kg properly that would be way more useful.

One of the last 200ish of the gen3s, probably.

I think a 5 door will look out of proportion?

Would be nice to be a 2 seater with no rear windows but I cannot see that happening.

Interested in seeing what power unit it has. Stretching it ruins the proportions, and seems to go against the whole ethos of what a Jimny is meant to be, once it gets bigger you might as well go the whole hog and buy a Grenadier or Defender.

Its an Indian market variant assembled by Maruti, I cannot see other markets getting it apart from some asian countries and perhaps Australia.

Its a simple stretch so the engine and drive train is the same.

The only mystery is that the prototype mule pictures are in Austria which is an unusual place to test a vehicle not destined for the EU market

In Graz/Austria there is a big car development hub with focus on 4x4. Also all the Gs are built in Graz. Could easily be that Magna got a development contract. Or maybe there is a development for something else and just the body is used because it was available.

Aussie site suggesting it might be a hybrid as "it drove away without any noise", but that would need to be a 'proper' hybrid rather than the mild setups in the Ignis et al.

Need far more space to fit a full hybrid system, so a 5 door would make sense
