    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. In Alto 800, which variant is powerful with AC or without AC
    • All have powerful a/c ..depends on using it.cabin is small so more cooling.don't put fan all the time .set between 2 and 3 if it is hot inside. zzdown mirrors a little bit so that warm sir goes out.Then you can maintain it on 1 and 2.Use blower fan if it's too humid.Smart adjustment of vents is another trick.try to park the car in shades. Refill ac .,regular check up during services makes it better.
    • Take a/c because in A/c car while designing some rotational balance to counter the act of comppressor.it increase some benefit in torque. And in re-sale value also it experience.
    • I Suggest you to buy alto k10 lxi variant because now price of k10 is available in alto 800 at 3.50lac its best

    Q. Which model is value for money VXi or LXi - Alto 800 2019?
    • Talking about the Alto LXI, this variant meets the most basic needs and is the value-for-money upgrade. This mid-spec variant has a lot more to offer and is costlier by over Rs 50,000. However, the added conveniences are definitely worth it and the aesthetics are a bonus. While the premium over the base-spec is understandable, the addition of internally adjustable ORVMs and a Bluetooth-enabled audio system would have been appreciated.
    • I always go for LXI and then add on features which I want at more discounted rate from the dealer itself.
    • Mere paas alto lxi 2010 hai uski body niche se junk lg kar galne lg gyi hai please koi tarika btaye uski body or junk lgne se na gale
