Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 Engine & Performance

Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 Overview

Maruti Suzuki launched a mid-life facelift of the Alto 800 in 2016. The car is now 9 per cent more fuel-efficient than the earlier model. The changes in the facelift include a new grille, which has been replaced by a slimmer one with the logo mounted below it. The car also gets a provision for fog lamps, which are well-integrated in the bumper. The lower half of the bumper houses a large intake, which as compared to the last generation car has been inverted to make it look more aggressive. The car now has a fuel economy of 24.7kmpl and the CNG version also shows an improvement of over 10 per cent above its predecessor with a mileage of 33.44kmpl.  Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 price range in India is between 2,56,136/-to 3,82,836/-, check for detail pricing of Alto 800 in Carzprice

Pros: Engine performance Very economical If rave not hard Ok ok space have to compromise Body build quality better than eon and quid Cons: Looks amazingly dated Especially front portion even the new fog lights did not help to raise the stance Sefty caution drive less than 100 kph Small puny tires Suspension is not up to the mark Reliable package for first car buyers Also far better than eon and quid both show the style statements only Very good for pocket also It fulfills all des

The body panels and doors feel extremely light & flimsy, clearly showing the focus on cost and weight saving. Just like the Hyundai Eon (715 kg), the Alto is an extremely light car that tips the scales at just 695 – 725 kilos. The base variant is a mere 5 kilos heavier than the car that it replaces, despite all the changes. The ribbed roof section was necessary to give the thinner metal a certain level of stiffness. Maruti says that it has used high strength steel for the Alto. Overall fit & finish is standard Maruti fare and acceptable for a budget hatchback. The paint quality on our Metallic Red test car was impressive.

Because the Alto 800 is heavily based on the dated Alto platform, I have my reservations on the safety aspects of this car. I fear this car might not score as well as newer generation automobiles in crash tests. An optional Driver side airbag is available on the LXI variant. This is a hugely welcome move, though we wish Maruti had offered ABS as an option too / instead. To Team-BHPians, I recommend the LXi variant only. The base & middle variants lack must-have features such as power steering, front power windows, body-coloured bumpers, remote boot opener, internally-adjustable mirror and of course, the driver airbag. Do keep in mind that there is only a negligible price difference between the Alto 800 LXi and the base Alto K10. View offers on Maruti Cars from Maruti dealers in Hyderabad at Autozhop

This is another department that scores a huge plus from our side. The ride is pretty planted and there is minimal body roll while negotiating tight corners as compared to the competition. There is a bit of understeer but nothing to complain about. The Alto 800 keeps its composure, unlike its competition in the segment.

What you also notice is the way this little hatch tackles bad roads. Passengers or the driver have very little jerks felt inside the cabin. Sure, on really poor stretches the car will undulate a lot, but it being a monocoque chassis like all its rivals, there is nothing much you can do about. That said, the pliant ride and good handling characteristics like its predecessor are very good and keep the Alto 800 well-planted over all roads.

So, the Alto 800 is an age-old design that has minor tweaks, some new goodies, a few changes to the fabric and decals, but there is nothing striking about it. That said, there are a number of reasons why I would buy the Alto 800. Those being the huge brand following, dealership network, reasonable and easy-to-find spare parts.

If you are the one who would not want to experiment (not stating that other cars in this segment are any bad in any of the aforementioned aspects but they have a lot of challenges to overcome) with fresh brands, the Alto 800 is the car you should buy.
