No - there is no need.The blower is powerful enough to blast air right till the rear.

Yes, I think the new Gypsy still comes with the same old Maruti Badge.

Chech out some of the new Gypsys Team Bhpians own:

I think they should have a varient which cost about 30k more but offers rear vents for AC and has power steering.

Rear AC may not be missed much but power steering will definitely be missed. It should have been available at least as a option with a 20k hike. It would be in demand from the budget family segment.

i dont think there is any competitors at this price range for EECO! so once a competitor comes in, MSIL will introduce one with PS and rear AC as new version

else

if EECO sells well, they will come up with an anniversary edition with PS and Rear AC

Friends. I just booked the 5 seater ac version. The 5 seater can seat only 4 at best in decent comfort. I think the Eeco is the most utilitarian vehicle one can get for the price. Unlike the old maruti van, your head doesn't hit the roof. Acceleration and handling is decent for its dimensions and class of vehicle. Instrumentation is non fussy and very bare basic. Its super compact and quite spacious. The rear window is the largest full-roll down window ive ever seen on any vehicle. I think the Eeco tremendous value for money. Its the only decent passenger vehicle I know of that provides most cubic feet / sq ft space for the price.

There isnt any point comparing it to any of the small cars. This a bare basic VAN , that does its job quite well and does not seem to have any pretensions about trying to be something else. A PS would be good, but the manual steering isnt hard either.

What about the deliveries? Have they started rolling them out? Is it readily available?

Hi Jayant, congratulations! What's the wait period for delivery? Any difference in wait time for 5/8 seater? Looking forward to your user report (esp. FE and ease of driveability in heavy traffic with a full load + AC) before I decide on getting one.

A very very sensible decision;do let us know when you get her(or him?)

You are right about the sliding door window - you'll feel the size only when you roll the window down fully - and you'd have noticed the safety feature - the window rolls down till 6" after which you need to rotate the lever back half a turn before rolling the window fully down

There were only 2 vehicles. One a demo & another red. The red was readily available but looked too bright so Ive decided to wait to see the blue. The vehicle is to be launched today i suppose.

No HIM / HER for me. Its a VAN. Thanks for pointing out that its a safety feature. The sales guy told me that there might be a problem with the window winding. . Now I can leave it half open for the dogs to stick their noses out.

I should get it in the coming week once I finalize the color. Ive blocked the red for now.

the demo vehicle is a grey and the show vehicle is a red - that's what I saw here also.

That's nice;I love dogs and have reared four apsos and one Alsatian-all gone and none now because I am not comfy leaving them in someone's care when I am out of town for extended periods.
