      Maruti Suzuki Gypsy To Be Revived

      Maruti Suzuki is all set to revive the Gypsy, a source informs us. The company is looking at improving the Maruti Gypsy at its key area – the powertrain. The recent decline of domestic market share to 40% has really caused India’s largest car maker to enter new segment. Furthermore the shift from small cars to SUVs has led to the company looking at the MPV and SUV segment to get volumes. The XA Alpha Concept which was showcased at the 2012 Auto Expo could very well be the face of the next Gypsy. Maruti Suzuki will certainly not use the XA Alpha name for a production vehicle.

      So what could the new Maruti Suzuki Gypsy get? The engines from the Swift and SX4 will debut in the Gypsy and will give the compact SUV a fresh lease of life. Remember the Gypsys are known as mountain goats, due to their light weight offering them go anywhere ability. The new Gypsy is said to maintain this advantage and will use aluminum components for weight reduction. A plastic fuel tank (like the one found on the new Swift) will also be used to save on weight.

      The 1.2-litre K-series petrol engine uses VVT and produces 86 BHP of peak power at 6000 RPM and 114 Nm of peak torque at 4000 RPM. The 1.3-litre diesel DDiS motor on the other hand produces 89 BHP of peak power at 4000 RPM and 200 Nm of peak torque at 1750 RPM. Maruti understands that a compact SUV which just 2-doors and a petrol engine won’t work and is striving to launch a compact SUV which has all the right ingredients for success. Both the petrol and diesel engines are extremely frugal and should be priced below Rs. 8 lakhs. A launch is expected in 2013 and the next generation Gypsy will rival the Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster.

      114 and 200Nm torque. So less. Even the Sumo has more than this (IIRC it is around 220Nm). Will it pull the load. May be if only 2-3 guys are then then it can pull in all terrain. I don't know. Just a guess

      Please take into consideration the fact that the Sumo is a lot heavier than the current Gypsy. If they are looking to further reduce the weight, then the power train figures start looking quite good!!

      Sounds yummy - let's hope they price it right. A petrol Gypsy bought new makes sense only for Government departments / Defence forces.

      Gypsy would be much better in its diesel form for maruti than launching a jimny.

      the main market for Gypsy is Defence, police and govt department and they are not bothered weather its petrol or diesel. that's why Maruti never made an effort to revive Gypsy for ordinary people like us...
