Maruti Suzuki Gypsy revival on cards

Kaustubh

Kaustubh Shinde,

They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don’t find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.

Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

Suzuki Jimny

By Kaustubh Shinde

The recent launch of the Mahindra Thar – a car meant for a Sunday adventure, has caught the attention of the largest Auto manufacturer in India – Maruti Suzuki. The company is said to be working on a mini SUV on the lines of a Suzuki Jimny (Gypsy for Indians).

Maruti claims that this will ‘almost’ be a new model with 4 doors and a diesel powerplant. We suspect the next generation Jimny will be manufactured in India. The vehicle could be powered by the 1.3-liter Multi-jet engine and could be under four meters long.

Senior Maruti Suzuki official –

We’re looking at how to strengthen our portfolio and are identifying new gaps. We’re actively looking at the small SUV space. This will have to be a four-door diesel model, as a petrol two-door SUV will not click with the Indian consumer. We’re working on an almost new concept for this.

The other cars that the company seems to be working on include

• new small-car in the Alto segment or a possible Alto replacement
• MPV possibly based on the RIII concept.
• the SX4 diesel variant
• new Swift
• Swift Dzire facelift
• And finally the Kizashi sedan

This frenzy of launches are in progress as Maruti wants to get back 50% market share that it lost in the last few years to other manufacturer.
