The colour schemes available for the Jimny XL Heritage are – White, Jungle Green, Bluish Black Pearl, Granite Grey Metallic and Chiffon Ivory with Bluish Black Pearl roof.

The Jimny XL is actually made in India and exported to Australia, thus featuring the same 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine as the Indian model with some tweaks to generate 100 hp and 130 Nm, 5 hp and 4 Nm less than the India-spec. The Heritage edition gets a sole 5-speed manual transmission although the SUV also gets a 4-speed torque converter automatic.
