Maruti Gypsy Diesel Launch Date

Maruti Gypsy 2018 December 2018

There are possibilities of it coming by the year end. There have been speculations on the launch of the Maruti Gypsy with a diesel engine. However, we reckon that Maruti will not introduce a diesel engine in this vehicle. The Vitara Brezza seems high volumes in diesel and Maruti would push the petrol engine in the Gypsy. The Maruti Gypsy will be a light off-road vehicle, hence it will be frugal as well. The Gypsy will have many buyers attracted to it. If will be offered with a powerful engine and 4×4, Thar will have a worthy competitor. Maruti will be looking at getting into production for India by late 2018 or early 2019. That is the period one can expect it to arrive.

The new Maruti Gypsy 2018 looks aggressive in its styling. The X-Lander concept was bigger and a lot more muscular, though. The front grille has vertical slats and the head lamps are well-chiselled. The bumpers are fresh and new this time and not the metal ones like old times. It will retain the design language but the production version will have a lot changes. The X-Lander Concept was showcased was a two-door just like the Jimny or the Gypsy.

The glass on the doors won’t make it into production. It more from the point of view of a concept attraction. The tail lamps somewhat seem to be inspired from the Range Rover. The haunches will be pronounced as the concept showcases.

  1. Bathing ke daant, dikhane ke aur, khane ke aur. Maruti believes Indian customers are idiots and will buy any shit that they make. Look at Tata, they display, what they plan to launch, achchhe din ke gubbare dikhane ke Tata ace jaise dabbe nahi Bechte. Kooda banane ki factory hai Maruti. Engine bakwaas, dhancha auto rickshaw se bhi halka, service bekar, wo bhi Sabse mehngi, Lekin fir bhi Bikta yehi hai.

  2. Even if launched in current European model with AWD and ladder frame. I will buy for my village road conditions and 4 going to agricultural fields tension free. Ac with rear tilt adjustable comfortable seats must. Please someone convey to company give launch date in auto expo 2018.

  3. awesome design and have seen how amazing it works 1.2 liter k series engine… please let us know about when it will be launch in India & booking and if there any changes in design.. can’t wait to see actual..

  4. Waiting for this car since long, yet to get any positive information about launch date . Need to know other specs. also.The interior design is important and also the not driving but the riding comfort which matters.

  5. Still like the older vehicle. The jimmy look will never go out of fashion. I think at the end of the day the customer should be given a choice to decide whether to go for the new look or old gypsy. The new gypsy with shorter wheel base is smaller than the older gypsy.

  6. Just looks like a toy I doubt may be this will not be able to climb the stiff rock, lets see the suzuki technology?

  7. Please inform me about the date of booking, and put me the list. I am looking for a new vehicle.
