It is the best off-roader available in India right now. First impression is that it is expensive to own and run for what it offers. The petrol engine is not economical at all, expect 8-9 km/l in the city and about 13 on the highway. It does not have the goodies that the basic entry level hatchbacks offer- no power steering, no power windows, no air conditioner. If you buy the soft top it is a pain to find a safe place to park the car. The suspension is 'bail gadi' suspension. The rear occupants will continuously keep cursing you how much ever carefully you may drive. But then if you consider what it offers, it starts to make sense for a guy like me who wants it for a bit of fun at Goa. The lack of creature comfort features start becoming an advantage- if an equipment is not fitted, it can never break! Uncomfortable it may be but you can seat 8 persons in reasonable comfort and (short!) trips like this one can be great fun. Open the soft top and it becomes a car that everyone wants to get a ride in. Now other benefits- It is very well built. Gear box is superb. Very quiet petrol engine. 4x4 capability is the best in India. Superb ground clearance- if the obstacle is less that 8 inches, you don't even have to look at it just go over. Broken roads, no roads, fields, small waterbodies, beaches, rocks, you cab just take it anywhere! Nothing breaks! Nobody messes around with you as Gypsies are mostly used by police and military. Service is very cheap- around 2k per six months. Summing it up, if you need a second car, Gypsy can be a lot of fun.
