Our Verdict

The iconic Gypsy is more like a jeep suitable for off roading purpose and also apt on tough terrains. This is any off road enthusiasts’ dream car. It is built for sheer power and is comparable to a mountain bull. It is multiuse. Used by the armed forces and the light body of the car also make it suitable for Indian Rally Sports. Definitely a keeper for sheer enthusiasts, it is a brilliant 4x4 vehicle that can drive on any terrain, it is mainly used for recreational purposes rather than daily use as the ride quality and comfort levels are not the best. But still it has a special place in people’s hearts.
