Bookings for this Indian classic will go on till the end of this month.
The Maruti Suzuki Gypsy has always been a classic set of wheels on the road. Since its launch, it has gotten people to turn their heads and acknowledge its immense aura of power and authority. So this news will come off as shocking to classic car lovers. The Maruti Suzuki Gypsy is to be rolled out of production since the company will not be updating the model with the new ABS and airbag norms that the Indian government will be rolling out.
The Maruti Gypsy has been driven across all kinds of terrain and has had all kinds of admiring looks thrown at it. From being an off-roader of the highest degree to being an upfront rally champion, the Gypsy will always have a place in our hearts and those of our fathers. But sadly, the Gypsy has not been able to keep up with the vast changes and comforts that new-age cars provide to the Indian driver. The bulletproof reliability of the Gypsy has, for some time, been overshadowed by the power steering and dynamics of the new cars that run on our roads.
The production is said to stop by March 2019. For people looking to buy a unit before it ends, this month will be your last chance. This classic Indian automobile will cost Rs. 6.22 lakhs (ex-showroom) to your pocket, but the idea of owning this soon-to-be-vintage vehicle eclipses the cost. With the Gypsy phasing out of production, this will also be a good time to let the new Suzuki Jimny take its place if at all Maruti has any plans to introduce it in India.
