Alternatives for Alto

Pros : Great mileage, economical, AC

Cons : Clutch, Gears, small boot

 

I have owned this car for a long time and I definitely look for an upgrade. It’s just that you get too tired of the car soon and look for better options however the car is good and quite reasonable in price.  The car fails to offer anything different or unique than its counterparts in the segment. More than 30,000 kms of its drive have now left me with the following conclusions. 
 
Exterior
The exteriors are satisfactory with a side windings and curves. The Structure is that of a Typical Maruti Car. The Car is quite small in looks even from the closest look at it from the outside. The headlamps in the front are well suited for this kind of a design; however rear is disappointing and doesn’t look so well.
 
Interiors
The Interiors of the car are much more fibre like and the positioning is very compact due to the small size of the car. The Steering although is well positioned. The Display din including the speedometer is somewhat more huge than expected and something that looks a bit odd one out. AC vents are well in place. The seats are however not that comfortable but satisfactory. The leg space is fair, but you can get more in other cars of the segment. The boot space is fairly okay.
 
Engine
Engine is less powerful and so is its pickup. The Best thing about the car is its mileage which is a charm even with the AC switched on. 
 
Performance
The Clutch constantly gives me a problem. I am now used to take it for servicing every now and then. The car as mentioned earlier is good on mileage on highways, but sometimes one needs to think beyond that and now i regret not buying a Santro or an i10. The Car demands a lot of maintenance. The car is not well suited for long distances as the engine heats up soon and the linen seats give you fatigue. Brakes are good and the gear shift is satisfactory.
 
Conclusion
The Car would be well suited if you are not looking forward for spending much, otherwise I would recommend checking out Hyundai Santro or an i10 and others in the same segment. The Car is good for mileage conscious people though.
