ah, thats a nice one there! well if it is priced at around 5-6lk, am sure its gonna be a nice hit. its a nice practical vehicle i feel, a smaller SUV for the suv lovers, but good for the heavy traffics of India. u get the pleasure of driving an Suv and also having it small and neat.

good on em!

Does it have the off road capabilities of the gypsy? The Esteem engine powered gypsy could actually go anywhere, to places where even tractors dread.
This one looks like a joke. If they do something about the gypsy in their R&D division(do they have any?) it can sell again, and not just to armed forces. All you need is coil spring suspension and a 70BHP diesel engine(It weighs 990KG, right so this much power is good enough).

very true.
i was shocked to see this thread, and took it as some good and exciting news from MUL after Swift!

one appeal to MUL, (if someone can pass it on to them!)

please do some changes to your Gypsy and relaunch it for enthusiasts like us!
please!!

Sorry, but you're wrong, it is infact called the Suzuki 'Jimny' [Gym-nee]
Please see the nameplate in picture below!!

A CRDI engine powered Open Top Gypsy with 4x4 and basic creature comforts and priced around 5 Lacs is the need of the hour for enthusiasts like me.

Can somebody put this thing into the petrol-Heads at MUL??

This is more than two years old thread and MUL is not planning to change current Gypsy. If it happens in future, we can start a new thread.

We're closing this thread.
