The Maruti Suzuki Gypsy is an off-road vehicle, which has been used for years by our police and defence forces. This purpose built 4X4 vehicle is powered by a 1.3 L multi-port fuel injected petrol engine that generates 81 hp at 6,000 rpm and 103 Nm at 4,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox with a mechanical 4X4 transfer system that can switch from 2-wheel drive to 4H or 4L as per the terrain in front of the driver. Kerb weight of the Maruti Suzuki Gypsy is 985 kg for the soft top and 1020 kg for the hard top which gives this SUV a 'go-anywhere' capability. Owing to its inexpensive maintenance and good off-road capabilities, the Gypsy is recommended and preferred by many off-roaders.

Measuring at 4,010 mm in length, 1,540 mm in width and a wheelbase of 1,875 mm for the soft top version and 1,845 mm for the hard top variant, the Gypsy is a manueverable car in traffic. The Maruti Suzuki Gypsy runs on 205/70 section tyres as stock with 15-inch steel rims for extra rigidity during hardcore off-roading. Front and rear suspension setup are a leaf spring with double action damper and booster.
On the inside, the Maruti Suzuki Gypsy has a rugged dashboard with a lockable glovebox for securing essentials like car papers, wallet etc while off-roading. The hard-top variant of the SUV also gets fabric upholstery while adjustable front seat head restraints with a vanity mirror on the co-driver mirror and a front package tray are standard offering on both variants. The front seats are comfortable, however the rear jump benches on each side of the SUV are good only for short trips in case there are four adults squeezed into it.
