Awesome... the new Maruti Alto 800 is receiving tremendous response ahead of launch. It is expected to break the sales record of current Alto. Along with re-freshed exterior and interior it appears more impressive to the existing model. Affordable price, enhanced features, power and mileage are major plus point of new small car which are pulling out the customers. It is very good that the beast is being offered in two fuel choices- Petrol and CNG. Token money for the vehicle is affordable and there is no doubt that it might cross the expected bookings mark of 10K till launch. Thanks to Maruti for this new creation...
