Purely imaginative rendering.
Despite being late to the party, the Maruti Vitara Brezza has done the unthinkable for the company's utility vehicle lineup, even becoming the best selling Indian UV in a short period of time. So we assume that product planners at Maruti would be tempted to flood the market with crossovers in every size class.
The Indo-Japanese manufacturer will roll out the Maruti Ignis early next year, a product that combines the looks of a utilitarian vehicle with the drivability of a hatchback. However, if Maruti were to consider an outright SUV to sit between the Vitara Brezza and the S-Cross, they could consider a replacement of the tough-as-teeth Maruti Gypsy, which has so far found a bulk of its customers from central and state governments.
To give an idea of what a next gen Maruti Gypsy would look like, IAB's Shoeb R Kalania has created an imaginative rendering. If Maruti were to consider such a product, it will rival the Mahindra TUV300 and Bolero Power+, appealing to customers looking for a true blue SUV.
The Gypsy recently lost an Indian Army contract to the Tata Safari Storme, reportedly, as they were looking for a safer product and has more power from an engine that runs on diesel, the cheaper and more readily available fuel. The Gypsy is powered by a 1.3L 4-cyl petrol engine with 80 hp and 103 Nm of torque.
