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 keep going with AC in1 position. We can feel the cool in no time. I tried for long run at a speed of 100 km. Very comfortable. I am regular in servicing the car.
