    Default Maruti Gypsy

    Gypsy has long been the favourate of young lads and is the official geep for a number of government departments like Delhi police, Punjab police and lot more including a number of para military forces, partly because they cannot afford anything better and partly because of the low maintance costs and some of the profits from the sales remained in India.
    Maruti's Gypsy is sold in Uk and some other european countries in a different name and they are all made in Gurgaon

    here are a few pictures and some specs of the good old Gypsy.

    Word gypsy comes from south eastern Europe from the 15th and 16th century when people who didint have houses and used to travel all around europe and did small time circus kind of shows to make a living.
    Word gypsy is considered to be offensive in UK and some other countries by law when refered to as those people who dont have a permanent house and they are now refered to as The travellers.
    You could end up in jail for calling some one a gypsy or a gippo.





    PS: whatever i mentioned here was not meant to offend any one I just tried to explain the meaning of word gypsy to those who dont know why this jeep is called gypsy
    If any part of this post is offending you or you feel may offend some one please send me a message it will be deleted.

    Their mileage was really low, if I remember correctly. Only some very rich guys could afford to spend all that petrol for it. May be they came out with better, less oil consuming engines of late.

    A true offroader i would say. It is great for college gooing students but the biggest problem with it is that it has a really low fuel economy which is not a good thing otherwise it would had been widely liked by everyone..

    I would say that this is not the true off roader. It is just a cheap vehicle which have cheap maintenance cost. Otheriwise i dont think that it has anything good.

    I do not really like this car. I dont think that it would be able to survive for a long time if Maruti does not introduce some more luxurious features in this car.

    Gypsy is a thing of past now. This car is just good with policec people but not with the normal person as because it is not available in diesel and it has a very bad average on pertrol which is not good for youngters... and people who have small earning.. .
