Maruti Suzuki has dominated the Indian market for some time now. However, Hyundai and Tata Motors are doing their bit to stay on the heels of the legendary manufacturer in the small car segment. The Alto 800 has been on the market for the last three decades now – earlier it was known as the M800, and over the period it has been completely replaced by the Alto 800. Since its launch in the year 2012, Alto carried on the M800 legacy and became the highest selling car in India. Four years after its initial launch, the model received a mid-life upgrade as part of the product lifecycle. The old Alto which was loved by many influenced the buyer’s decision to opt for the new gen Alto, and their decision has not failed them. Maruti Suzuki is maintaining the legacy along with adding something new to the table. With commendable styling and power-packed performance, Alto 800 is among the best entry-level models in the market.
Having learnt about the overview, let us dive deeper into this comprehensive Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 review:
On the outside, the refreshed Alto 800 looks cute in its small stature. The Alto 800 facelift saw the model opt for a trapezoidal design instead of the hexagonal air-dam. The headlamps in the Alto 800 have been tweaked, and for the first time, the front fog lamps have made their way into the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800. Despite being an entry-level model, the car is not short of impressive features as it features prominent creases both on the front bumper and bonnet which is usually seen in premium models. On the rear end, the tail is quite similar to the previous model and has a typical Maruti Suzuki feel to it with broad shoulder line.
As for interiors, the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 retains most of the elements from its predecessor. For an entry-level car, it houses decent interior features which are basic to begin with. The dashboard of Alto 800 is dressed well in dark grey colour which is further complemented by silver touchup. The top trim gets air-conditioning coupled with front power windows and power steering. In the top trim, you also get a 1-DIN music system accompanied by two speakers in the front. Keeping in mind about the safety, the Indian manufacturer is offering an optional driver airbag option as well.
Under the hood, the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 comes with an 800cc petrol engine. The engine is BS IV compliant, and it delivers a fuel economy of 24.7kmpl. At 24.7 kmpl, the efficiency is 9% more than the earlier model. Alto 800 is also being offered with CNG option which is expected to provide a staggering 33 km per litre.
Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 is available in 10 variants -8 petrol and 2 CNG. The petrol variants include STD, STD (O), LX, LX (O), LXI, LXI (O), VXI, VXI (O), LXI CNG, and LXI CNG (O).
Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 on road price lies between INR 2.6 to INR 3.7 lakh considering price after GST. Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 price and specifications put the model in direct competition with Renault Kwid, Tata Nano, Honda Brio and Datsun Redi-Go.
