Alto Green …. The best four seater for city ride
Pros : Effective AC, Power Steering and Interior quality
Cons : Stiff cabin space
Hi, Since September 2010 I have been driving Maruti Alto Green LXI and the experience has been satisfactory to an extent. I was looking for a CNG car that is the reason why I bought the Green LXI variant. It has got the 800 cc variant which is though not much powerful due to CNG power but yes it is satisfactory. While driving on highway, the ride becomes bit compressed, but yes for city this car is the best one in its range. Furthermore, the AC of my car is really effective. I have noticed one thing that the power of the car is good when the AC is switched off, but you switch it on the power drops abruptly.
The interior quality is also good and it has got dual tone dash board with well arranged speedometer. Both front and rear cabins have so-so cabin space, but its ok for a 5 feet 10 inches tall passenger like me. However, the rear seat can accommodate only two passengers and if you try to adjust three passengers, the comfort does not exist. For further convenience the company has blessed this car with digital fuel indicator that makes you aware about the about the fuel consumption. The outfit of my car is in white color that really suits the personality of this car.
It has hot power steering that allows you to turn the car with one hand and in the minimum turning radius. The size is compact; therefore, you can easily park it even in a small parking space. I think that the company can introduce some well refined variants of the Alto Green series that have more features and improved graphics.
