      tata safari or maruti gypsy

      Hi guys ,
      Currently I own safari as you guys know later I thought why not get gypsy for my daily 150 km travel.

      Everyday I will travel 150km

      Now if I see consumption of fuel in both car per year
      Safari = Rs.226800 (diesel fuel rate Rs. 42)
      Gypsy = Rs.180000 (CNG fuel rate Rs. 40)

      Normal oil change cost
      Safari = 43000
      Gypsy = 30000

      Now seeing worst road I travel suspension cost
      Safari = 15000(outside) or 20000(from tata)
      Gypsy = 3000(outside)

      So total cost comes out per year
      Safari = Rs. 284800
      Gypsy = Rs. 213000

      difference = Rs. 72000


      So now I am confused should I go for gypsy or remain with safari

      So thought ask my fellow friends to clear my mind

      Also if I sell safari after 4 years what would I get value of it
      If its Less clocked around 30000 km
      Or
      If its clocked around 2L km

      Its vx 4x4

      You are aware that the Gypsy has a very bumpy ride and will not even remotely match the ride comfort of a Safari ...and especially since you do around 150 kms per day, I would say keep the Safari.

      Of course there is a price to pay for that added comfort and performance ...and your calculation says its around 72k per year. IMHO, that's not too great a price to pay for comfort, performance and a substantial amount of safety too.

      Don't get confused. With just 72000/- you will not get the luxury of a Safari in a gypsy. Go go for Safari with eyes closed.
      Try walking into YOUR car rather than crawling. For me walking is always best ---GURU SHISHIR

      +100 to what shishirbn said. Stick to safari only. The ride in gypsy is bumpy too. Nevertheless the engine is too good.

      You've been revolving around this decision for sooo long now... drop the Gypsy, stick to your Safari and let's end it at that!!

      yup but in that time i did looked about gypsy but before i get time out of my busy life gypsy already get sold off not one but atleast 12 gypsy has been sold infront me .

      I haven't seen any person with 2L+ km in his safari which would give me little idea about expense even in my last safari at college time completed 45km in 5years . So everyone around me kept saying that gypsy will any day better and cheap in maintaining compare to safari .

      so today thought why not ask my gearhead friends like same confusion was regarding alloy

      Don't take it otherwise brother, sorry if it hurt your sentiments.

      On a serious note, why don't you maintain both these vehicles. Safari for regular use & gypsy for off-road (adventure) use. All the best.

      NP no need to say sorry this help me to improve
      right now i can't because huge amount of money being spent on our new house construction + less space for cars already in current location people complain about our cars fleet(6cars) but once i move to our new house i won't have problem then i can build true off-roader beast


      and also last not least Supreme Lord(my father) won't give me money any time soon
