Maruti Gypsy is a forgotten warrior of the off-roads, as our Indian Army too discarded it recently from their list, due to need for more power on field. But still the Maruti is holding it back in the showrooms under a tag of “cash cow”, just to fill up the product line. The pros at Auto Expo regarding the said compact SUV is that, Maruti has rolled out a customized concept called “Gypsy Escapade” at the venue to poop a bloom of yellow color on the eyesight of spectators. Hopefully, the changes made are termed in the form of new yellow paintjob, raised ground clearance, litigant lamps above windshield, and the added “scoop” on bonnet, to concrete the move against Mahindra Thar.
Power to the Gypsy Escapade, or even that conventional Gypsy too, gets from the 1.3L MPFI petrol engine delivering 80hp and 103NM of torque.
In fact, the rumours were astounding a launch of Gypsy facelift, or an addition of a diesel version to it, to be unveiled at the Auto Expo; but there doesn’t seem any sunlight powering the said claims of Gypsy anytime soon.
