The supposed-to-be Suzuki Jimny 2018’s K15B petrol powertrain that powers the Indonesian Suzuki Ertiga is likely to replace the current 1.4-liter K14B engine in the Indian Ertiga and Ciaz. This engine can be responsible for 138 Nm at 4,400 rpm and 104.7 PS at 6,000 rpm. Just like in the Indonesian-spec Suzuki Ertiga, the 1.5-liter petrol engine works in conjunction with a four-speed torque converter AT or a five-speed MT for the upcoming Jimny.
