Rating: 9.7/ 10 (3 votes cast)

The Alto is one of the top selling models of Maruti Suzuki; the company is geared to introduce a diesel version of the car powered with a 3 cylinder petrol mill. The car is available in 3 versions such as VXi, LXi and LX. The Alto is not a very reliable product in terms of safety, but is still a popular model; the company will not launch the 2014 Alto with a new airbag. Alto is appreciated for its trendy and ideal family model image.

Sources are hoping for the car to be incorporated with an ABS safety feature as well to elevate safety to new levels.

An exciting piece of information for Alto 800 fans is the company is working on a diesel 800cc car, which is expected to release some time in 2015. The diesel version will be developed in collaboration with the parent firm. The release of diesel Alto 800 will create stiff competition with other power players such as Chevrolet Beat, Hyundai i10, and Hyundai Eon.

Its cut-throat competitor is Eon, and the immense competition between the cars has been publicized in many magazines and on internet sites. Another interesting fact with the launch of Alto 800 is Maruti Suzuki is keen to main a high market share of 40%.

According to a top company official of Frost and Sullivan, most firms are exploring diesel segments and this is a practical strategy, since people would prefer to spend more on LPG and CNG models which would offer higher fuel efficiencies than their petrol counterparts. The trend for petrol cars might over power diesel if the acquisition costs are much higher than customer turn over.

The Alto is one of the top sellers in Indian auto industry along with Swift Dzire sedan. Maruti Suzuki cars have catered to optimum consumer satisfaction through the years, and the engine technology incorporated with the Swift models is the incredible and advanced K series engine. The company has also managed to enhance its production capacity during the present unfavorable market scenario that has haunted sales of other esteemed auto firms.

Alto 800 is now launched in the most loaded VXi version which is jam packed with magnificent style elements compared to another loaded LXi version. In the VXi variant there are new amazing features such as USB facilities and central locking with world class music system with 4 speakers. Some of the cosmetic upgrades are moldings on rear spoiler and side door.

The other exciting features are power steering, power windows in front, heater, dual color theme upholstery, body color bumpers, and fuel reader and so on.

The 800cc engine churns impressive efficiencies of 69NM peak torque and highest power of 48PS. The potent engine is attached to 5 speed gear box which operates manually, the car is rolled with CNG option as well. For the quality features and fashionable design, the car is priced at Rs 3.1 lakhs which makes this an ideal value for money product.

The colors offered would excite those who are into vibrant, jazz and neutral colors with torque blue, blazing red, frost blue, granite grey, silky silver and superior white.

A diesel version of Alto 800 would increase the sale output of the car to admirable levels, since petrol prices have increased considerably.
