Maruti Alto, not as expected
Pros : compact design and impressive mileage
Cons : lack of numerous comfort features like AC, power steering etc
Maruti India is the country’s largest car maker and with this reputation I bought Maruti Alto Green Std. however, the car comes with 0.8 litre of 47 BHP FC engine that is quite successful in delivery high mileage of 14.6 to 18.9 km per litre. Even the pickup and acceleration of the car is quite good. But when it comes to comfort features, Maruti Alto Green Std is totally nil.
The lack of air conditioning system, power steering, power windows, CD player and FM radio makes the car very dull. The handling of the car becomes a bit tough because of no power steering, but the mileage will make you happy. The compact design of the car make the drive easy in the city areas, but still the absence of comfort features become as the major drawbacks of the Maruti Alto Green Std.
