After seeing these two videos, I ain't getting into a Gypsy. Those were just ordinary dips in the road, very common in Indian roads, what happens if it hits a massive pothole in NH-17 at those speeds.

If you go a lots of offroad (or atleast travel where there are virtually no roads), go for Gypsy. solid machine and reliable of this lot.

Bolero : if you want to take few with you, and do not like the gypsy's rear acrobatic entry...

Safari : yes if you have too much money to spend and dont have a clue what to do with it.

i would say the Gypsy anytime over the other two. my friend owns the gypsy king and you cant even begin to imagine what we have done in it we could not believe a gypsy doing these things. the car is as good on the road as it is offroad. it has the power the four wheel drive and you can unleash hell with it. we had put in the K&N filters a free flow exhaust and lots of other things. the drivers seats can get crammped if you are big built, that was the only drawback that we found in it.

my heart says gypsy, my mind is confused between bolero/safari
I have a 2002 MPFI King and I easily get 12km/l in Bangalore traffic. And on highways the 5th gear does come handy and I have been able to do 120 + km/hr easily.
