Highly unlikely looking at the portfolio of M&M. A revamped Gypsy will be welcomed by all, but don't believe it could bring a big difference to the sales of M&M.

Will love to see the launch of the current generation Jimny (Doubt, as Maruti always bring in models a couple of generations old!)

A Gypsy with all wheel independant suspension & a diesel engine is what "the doctor ordered" !!

If that is what is rolling out ! There is going to be a hurricane in the market IMHO

every D&H is doing a diesel conversion, why can'nt MUL on the Gypsy ? Jimny two door is too small for normal usage. an extended one with 4 doors & diesel will be nice

Suzuki Jimny is also put as an KEI Class 4X4 in Japan (a car that is less than 3.4m in length, 1.4m in width & 1.48m in height having a 660cc 4-stroke engine with max power of 63 hp)

Of course it has a 1.3 / 1.4 / 1.5L petrol & a 1.4L turbo charged diesel options as well.

The overall dimensions are smaller due to the Kei class requirements. But it has got such huge accessories / mods / upgrades list compared to some of the other competitor vehicles.

The Gypsy is the 2nd generation model of Jimny Series SJ40/410.

IMO the Jimny would do well in its current avatar itself.

It will be the same in India. There's no way it can compete with the Accord & Camry.

For the sake of getting some idea how that will look like.
Swift: Overall Length (mm) 3760

DZire: Overall Length (mm) 4160
Current Boot: 400mm
New Boot: 240mm

Indica V2: Overall Length (mm) 3690
Indigo CS: Overall Length (mm) 3988
Boot: 298mm

IMO, Indigo CS look just Ok or slightly less then Ok with that boot size, imagine how Swift DZire will look like

I don't think new DZire will be sub 4mtrs. I wish its not!
Maruti will be better off making a Ritz Dzire if they want it sub 4m.

Ummm you interested?

The Blue Streak is actually my Cedia sports that you can see in my avatar as also in my garage and despite the big grin above it is a serious question on my part

Thanks Khoj ! I have 3 more years before I finish paying the EMIs of my swift ! So till then I would dream of flying cars and feeling jealous of the petrol heads who own a proper drivers car ! And pray to God, that I get a nice job which can take care of my aspirations and petrol charges by then !

I guess, Kizashi and Jimny are the 2 most awaited launches this year for Maruti.

If they are able to price it right, the likes of vento, city, even cruze, will feel the heat, provided they don't downsize the engine.

Maruti Suzuki Plans 20 Models By 2016


"Some of the products are already in an advanced stage of development. Although Maruti Suzuki has not disclosed which vehicles it plans to launch, we can count a few right away. The next generation Swift DZire (expected to be less than 4-meters in lenght), Ertiga (production version of the RIII), Ritz Facelift, A-Star Facelift, Alto Facelift, next generation 800 and SX4 Facelift are some which are definitely on the pipelines. "
