Now that the festive season car buying is all set to reach its zenith soon, it is expected that the final figure will be around 28,000 units booking by this Diwali. However, it is to be seen that how Maruti will be going to maintain steady delivery during this period as if the waiting period climbs, the booking might get affected. In addition to the price of the car and the Diwali offer on it, the mileage of 22.74 kmpl is also helping the car being an instant hit in India. Since there is still no prominent rival than the Chevrolet Spark, the Alto 800 will continue to enjoy the honeymoon phase.
