How speedy and fast is the Maruti Suzuki Gypsy?
By: Varun on 15 january 2015
Gypsy being an off roader that it is, focuses more on power delivery system rather than the power itself. It is made to blast through deserts, hills, brooks and what not, but it is definitely not a great performer on plain asphalt. Its 4 cylinder 16 valve 1.3L engine which powers all the four wheel of the car when necessary can make it sprint to 100kmph from scratch in 16 seconds. While the max it can run at is 120kmph.
The off roading cars like Maruti Suzuki Gypsy are not meant for high speed but for power output. The engine under the hood of Gypsy is tough and capable enough to tread anywhere. It is rightly said, where there is a road there is a Gypsy. However sadly the top speed and acceleration figures of this car remain low.
Maruti Suzuki Gypsy was the first off roader SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) in the Indian auto market. Since then it is performing very well on the Indian roads and it is the first choice of Police. Currently, Maruti Suzuki Gypsy comes equipped with 1.3 Liter, 1248cc DDIS diesel engine which generates 75 bhp of maximum power. The acceleration of the vehicle is also very good and it can reach 0-100 kmph in 13 seconds.
