Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSI), the country’s largest passenger car maker, is all set for the Alto 800 launch on domestic turf on October 16, 2012. The upcoming car has been touted by the industry experts to be among the most exciting vehicle launches planned during the year 2012 in the Indian passenger car market. The new Alto 800 has generated immense buzz and speculations in the domestic media, which have been watching every move closely from the stables of Maruti Suzuki.
In order to reclaim its market dominance in the entry-level passenger car market of the country, MSI has meticulously designed and engineered the upcoming Alto 800. The Indian car maker seems to have been hit hard by the so called obsolete appearance of the current generation of Alto as compared to that of Hyundai Eon, which stormed its way to the core of Indian sentiments with an unfathomable ease, since its launch. News has come up from the Maruti Suzuki premises that the Alto 800 price is going to be highly competitive and the car will greatly impact the total sales in the entry-level small car segment of the Indian auto market. The car is anticipated to be available around a price bracket between Rs. 2.5 to Rs. 3.3 lacs in the country.
Maruti Suzuki has a knack of producing Indian consumer oriented fuel efficient and low cost products, which then go on to become the top sellers of their respective segments. The yet-to-be launched Alto 800 will carry forward the MSIL legacy of highly successful cars and will cater to the entry-level car enthusiasts of the country. The brand new Alto 800 features nominal comfort and convenience attributes like power windows, power steering along with a refined Air Conditioning (AC) system as compared to the current version of the car. The company has provided some intensive tweaks to the current 796 cc petrol engine of Alto, which is expected to be installed in the upcoming 2012 Alto 800 model.
The yet-to-be launched 2012 Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 reviews have so far been positive and top industry boffins have declared the car to possess superior power and performance as compared to the current generation of the small car. Reportedly, the petrol variant of the new Alto 800 boasts of a superb mileage of more than 22 km per litre, while its dual fuel sister, the Alto 800 CNG is good to go for more than 30 km on every litre.
