While modern cars are packed to the brim with technology, here’s a vehicle that’s as analogue as cars get. Maruti Suzuki’s first SUV, went on sale back in 1985. Over the years it has seen its share of nip and tucks to stay in tune with the times, but the recipe hasn’t changed a whole lot. A light-weight body, a peppy petrol motor and four-wheel drive - this concoction made the Gypsy a darling of the Armed Forces for the past few decades. But, should you buy one?
Things We Like in Gypsy
Healthy 210mm of ground clearance, light weight and four-wheel drive gives it fantastic off-road credentials.
Smooth and refined 1.3-litre petrol motor has a punchy mid-range.
Things We Don't Like in Gypsy
On road ride quality is slightly bumpy, thanks to the leaf spring suspension.
Bare bones cabin doesn’t feature basic necessities such as AC or power windows.
Stand Out Features
Four-wheel drive is offered as standard.
The Maruti Gypsy has stood the test of time, becoming an icon in the process. It isn’t something you buy to get to work, or buy the groceries in. In fact, it misses out on the most basic creature comforts you’d find even in the Alto 800.
"The Gypsy is meant to be taken off-road, and offers tremendous potential for modifications as well."
