    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.

    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.
