Stylistically, the new Alto seems to extend the design language of its predecessor while differing in the detail treatment.The Eon on the other hand follows Hyundai’s very successful ‘Fluidic Design’ philosophy

Maruti's bestselling hatch of all times just got a new lease of life
The Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 is the spiritual successor to the legendary Maruti 800. With small proportions and attractive styling combined with an extremely affordable price point, the Alto 800 is one of the highest selling cars in the country. The Alto 800 is available in both petrol and factory fitted CNG versions which make it even more attractive as a cost effective point-to-point city car for most Indian middle class families.
The Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 is sleek and stylish with modern styling and compact dimensions all rolled into one. The large headlamps accentuate the front with the large grille tying up the look. The rear too is stylish with a dash of chrome on the boot. The interior is especially attractive and is a big step up from what the original Alto and the original 800 used to be. The smart center console in which the audio system and the AC vents are placed is also a big upgrade over the previous alto’s rather simple architecture.
The Alto 800 comes with a three cylinder 800cc engine. This 800cc engine, somewhat similar to the 800cc engine found in the last generation Alto and the Maruti 800 before that is known to be bulletproof when it comes to reliability, extremely fuel efficient while packing decent performance for a tiny city use car. The Alto 800 comes with a 5-speed gearbox which is mated to a front wheel drive drivetrain. The Alto 800 gets disc brakes in the front and drum brakes in the back.
The Alto 800 is one of the most fuel efficient cars in India returning mileage of 22.74kmpl. The Alto 800 goes up against the likes of the Tata Nano and the Hyundai Eon and is priced below Rs 4 lakh. The Alto 800, in our opinion is one of the most value for money cars you can buy especially if you have a small satellite family that does not need a lot of space and your main use is point to point transport in crowded cities like Mumbai.
In terms of future specification, we expect the Alto 800 to soon get the new 2-cylinder diesel engine and also an automatic gearbox which in turn will make it an extremely practical proposition for thousands of individuals who want to buy a car but are vary of the difficulties of driving and of the costs involved with it.
