Gypsy is a 4-wheeler off-road vehicle launched by Maruti in India. The off-road car was introduced in India in 1985. The car was preferred by police and armed forces. It became popular as a law enforcement vehicle. It was even exported to other countries. The Gypsy production was stopped in 2019 and it is no longer being manufactured for the general public. However, the car is still being manufactured exclusively for the defence sector.
The Gypsy was offered initially as a soft-top vehicle with the removable top. Later on, due to customer demand, a hard-top version was introduced.
The 4x4 off-road vehicle comes with a 1.3-litre 8-valve G13BB engine with multi-point fuel injection. It has a carbureted engine with a 5-speed gearbox. The car has two doors and could seat four people. It has a fuel tank of 40 litres. Its fuel efficiency is 11.96 km/l. It has a ground clearance of 210 mm. The car is available in two colours- silver and white. It is a basic car with no power steering or other fancy features and was intended for off-road use.

If you wish to have a more comprehensive policy that covers some of the excluded items, then you can pay an extra amount to get an add-on cover for your policy. Some of the add-ons you can consider for your Gypsy are:
It is important to have car insurance so you remain protected at all times. Timely renewal of the insurance before the due date is important. If you were wondering how to get your insurance renewed on time, then PolicyX.com has the solution for you.

If your insured car is stolen, you will be compensated with an amount equal to the IDV or insured declared value as mentioned in your insurance policy. In case you had taken the invoice add-on cover, you will be reimbursed with the original invoice value of the car.
LPG and CNG kits can be covered under the insurance policy only if it is endorsed in the RC (Registration Certificate) issued by the RTO. If the kit is installed by the manufacturer, only then will it be covered in the policy.
If your insured car meets with an accident and third party damage or injury to a third party is involved, then it is mandatory to inform the police. You may have to submit a copy of the FIR to make a claim on the policy.
If your son was a minor at the time of the accident, then it means he would not have a valid driving license. Driving without a valid driving license makes a claim ineligible. Therefore, your claim is likely to be denied by the insurance policy.
