Maruti Suzuki could take steps to make Gypsy a success


India's largest auto maker Maruti Suzuki India limited is now focusing on its flagship off-roader Maruti Gypsy. According to the sources, the company is aiming to make this SUV a success in the present markets. Gypsy was launched in India way back in 1985 that is about 27 years back when it took the markets by a storm. This SUV has helped the company to come on top of the markets and we can still see this vehicle somewhere on roads. It is a non fancy and true blood off-roader, which is still available for same in the auto markets. However, there is a little demand for this vehicle due to tough competitions and for many reasons.


Maruti Gypsy




Its demand has been faded as time passed and now it seems like fortunes changed for this vehicle as company is taking steps to make it a huge success. At present its appearance is not-so-impressive, its features are below average and it has under-the-hood specifications, which is not-so-encouraging for the customers to buy Gypsy. However, it has the reputation of the most favorite off-roader in India, which is encouraging the company take steps to re introduce this off road king in the markets. If we just take a look at the Maruti Gypsy features and specifications, it is coming with under-the-hood engine specifications with 1.3 liter, 4 cylinder engine with a displacement capacity of just about 1298cc. Moreover, it is available with petrol fuel option, which makes the running cost higher. It is evident that Gypsy has seen a lot of SUVs and Off-roaders since it was launched in India out of which only few could make a impact over the markets. Moreover, the MSIL has not focused much on improving or upgrading the Gypsy over the years as it was already a tremendous success.


Maruti Gypsy




Now the company has finally realized that there is an importance to focus on its most successful and favorite SUV Gypsy as its demand faded over the years. There is no information regarding the upcoming Maruti Gypsy price or its features. However, we can expect that the Gypsy will carry the same body panel as it used to come earlier as we can see in the Maruti Gypsy pictures. At present, this SUV will have to face tough challenges from the likes of Mahindra Thar, Bulero, and Force Gurkha in the off-roader segment. However, its low price tag and its iconic looks might help Gypsy to come on top and moreover the company is taking steps to make it a huge success in the markets. The company is expecting to increase Maruti cars sales in the markets further in all segments.

Maruti Alto 800 cheaper than Chevrolet Spark


Maruti Suzuki India Limited has recently launched the all new Maruti Alto 800 in India that went on to do a great job for Maruti cars in India. Before it was launched in India, it has managed to get over 10,000 bookings, which is something like no other car has managed to get. At present it is doing tremendous job for the company. On the other hand, General Motors have introduced the facelift version of the Chevrolet Spark in the month of October in order to boost sales of Chevrolet cars in India. This version of Spark has managed to get some decent response from the customers because of its enticing appearance and affordable pricing.


Maruti Alto 800


Spark has undergone some major changes to its exterior and interiors that made it to look refreshing and stylish. However, Alto 800 is more decent and stylish with the brand new look that contains the cues of Hyundai i10. Thus, it is difficult to make a choice in between these two hatchbacks as they are quite identical and unique in various aspects. It would be better to make a comparison in between Alto 800 and the facelift Chevrolet Spark.


Maruti Alto 800


When it comes to the engine specifications, Alto 800 is equipped with a 0.8 litre, 3-cylinder, 796cc engine that produces just 47Bhp of peak power and 69Nm of peak torque. Most impressive thing about this vehicle is that it has the most impressive fuel efficiency. Alto 800 can give you a mileage of 30Kmpl with CNG fuel option and about 22Kmpl with petrol fuel option, which is impressive. However, in terms of features, you can’t expect for some of the standard features in this model as it is coming at a very low price tag. When it comes to facelift version of Chevrolet Spark, it is equipped with 1.0 litre engine, which can churn out 63Bhp of peak horse power and 90.3Nm of peak torque power. Disappointing thing about this vehicle is that it can give a mileage of just 13Kmpl with LPG fuel and 18KMPL with petrol fuel. Both these cars are mated along with 5 speed manual transmission gearbox.


Chevrolet Spark


In terms of inner space, Chevrolet spark is considered to have better space compared to Alto 800. Thus, for those who needs better interior space and comforts must choose the facelift version of Chevrolet Spark. Chevrolet Spark price starts at just Rs. 3.16 lakh and the Maruti Alto 800 price starts at just Rs. 2.44 lakh. Hence, it is up to the customers to choose according to their requirements or according to their budget.

Nissan Evalia, Maruti Ertiga challenges Toyota Innova rein


The Indian four wheeler segment was flooded with new models of MPVs this year, which managed to grab the attention of MPV lovers. However, some of the MPVs like Nissan Evalia failed to attract customers due to some of the drawbacks to the features. On the other hand, Maruti Ertiga from Maruti cars has proved to be an enormous success to the company because of the attractive features, pricing and performance. It was launched by the Maruti Suzuki India limited as a competitor for the most successful Toyota Innova. Toyota Innova, Maruti Ertiga and Nissan Evalia are quite identical in many aspects and offers huge interior space. It is difficult for people to choose between these three MPVs as all these cars available with same pricing and with some identical features. It would be good to compare these cars before choosing one of them. In terms of interior design and features, Toyota Innova has the upper hand because of the stylish interiors and luxury features. Moreover, it offers the lavish comforts with huge inner space like no other MPV in its segment. This made Innova as one of the most successful Toyota cars in the markets.


Nissan Evalia


When it comes to Evalia, it is the first ever MPV from Nissan cars and it designed with huge inner space. However, there are lots of drawbacks associated with this vehicle, which led to its failure in markets. Moreover, Nissan Evalia price is a bit too high for Indian markets considering its features and specifications. On the other hand Maruti Ertiga was one of the most successful MPVs and it gave a tough challenge to Innova. Its interior design is beautiful but not as premium as Innova. What really impressive about this car is its attractive price tag that starts at just Rs. 5.92 lakh, which is far below the price tag of Innova or Evalia. When it comes to the most important fuel efficiency, Maruti Ertiga tops the chart with a fuel efficiency of 20kmpl (with diesel fuel), which is very impressive. Ertiga is the first ever MPV from the Maruti cars and it has done a decent job for the company.


Maruti Ertiga


It is difficult to say the final verdict about these cars. However, if you are looking for a spacious MPV, Ertiga will be the best choice whereas if you are looking for comforts and performance, Toyota Innova is an ideal choice. Maruti Ertiga will be the best choice for those who are with limited budget who needed a spacious and fuel efficient car for their traveling needs.
