Maruti Gypsy Expert Review

0 Shares

Introduction

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?

Pros
  • 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.
Cons
  • 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.

CarDekho Verdict

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."

The Gypsy is meant to be taken off-road, and offers tremendous potential for modifications as well. In case you need a toy to muck about in over the weekends, the grand daddy of four-wheel drive SUVs in India tugs at the heart more than anything!
