Maruti Alto 800 Expert Review

Maruti Alto 800 Review By Expert

After completing nearly 12 years of trust and reliability, the iconic Maruti Alto evolves and evolves exceptionally well in the form of New Maruti Alto 800 to greet its fanatics on the auspicious day of ‘Narvratra’ 2012. This new entry in the lineup marks an exit of the older Alto model. This is truly - 'India Car' - as it has been designed and developed in India for its people. Nearly 200 engineers worked for about 4 years in the development of this modern mass segment commuter, Maruti Alto 800.
 
The Maruti Alto 800 acquires high and distinct points like affordability, mileage-focus and contemporary looks besides feature filled interiors. This new hatchback launch is undoubtedly another feather in the cap of passenger car maestro, Maruti. The intensity and hype was such that there were more than 10,000 bookings before the official launch of Maruti Alto 800. Based on the same tried and tested Alto platform, the small car has been endowed with decent modifications to the front, rear and side lines along with retuned F8D engine for optimum power and performance. Moreover, the Alto lovers will also be delighted to see the addition of Maruti Alto 800 CNG model to the array.
  
Maruti Alto 800 PhotosThe appearance is very modern and striking, the fascia gets high mounted and a bit swept back petal headlamps that are in trend these days and are liked by the customers. The Maruti Alto 800 exteriors look wider as compared to the current Alto, while the front grille too dons an arresting emergence apart from newly shaped bumpers. From a distance the styling seems an inspirations from Ford Figo or older Hyundai i10 besides side profile matches the contemporary Maruti A Star. The reworked and now in-shape clear tail lamps replace the traditional looking ones. The tail gate is clean as usual and bumpers see width in character.
      
The interiors of Maruti Alto 800 are far more spacious then that noticed in the present Alto and M800, and this roominess can be felt from the exteriors too, due to its slightly taller and wider posture comparatively. This erases the leg room and head room limitation in the compartment to certain extent, and makes life comfortable for the 5 passenger in Maruti Alto 800. The instrument cluster with tachometer and clear vision large speedometer is better from driver’s perspective.  Moreover the nice looking steering wheel and gear knob reminds of Hyundai Eon’s, whereas the handy storage spaces at floor console and rear seats are amplified.
 
With new and updated Alto chassis the crash protection, which counts for safety of the occupants, is better in comparison to old Maruti Alto. Though there are not many of the advanced protection instruments make way in the safety feature list, considering the price factor, but still the inclusion of driver side airbag gets two thumbs-up. Motorized by 796cc, F8D petrol engine and available in CNG choice too, it smokes out a satisfactory 48 PS of maximum power at 6000 rpm approx, whilst the peak torque generated is of 69 Nm at 3500 rpm.
