New Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 - A Big Craze of Coming Festival Season

All New Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 Review. Know how Hyundai Eon took over previous Alto and the changes been done by Maruti in All New 800 CC Car. Entry segment buyers are getting a perfect gift for upcoming festival season


One of the most awaited launches of 2012 is round the corner. All new Maruti 800. The car had been on talks of critics quiet some time for been having plain interiors and traditional body built and design. Hyundai - the biggest competition to Maruti has launched its entry segment car a year back - Hyundai Eon against Maruti Alto with the major differentiator as fluidic looks in the entry segment car.

Hyundai read the weakness of Alto in :-

- Looks - There has been no changes in body looks, interiors for over a long time

- Limited Features , Present Alto Petrol have No Power Window, No Central Lock, No Music System, No Fog Lights

& they designed a car and launched it by name Hyundai Eon - addressing above changes

Eon has Power Steering, Front Door Power Window, Manual Central Lock, Fluidic Looks, Bigger Boot Space


However - though Eon could make a point but was unable to surpass Alto or Alto K10  - coz

- Pricing - one of the major factors. Eon Era Plus and Magna Plus Models are priced higher than Alto 800. Maruti has started offering heavy discounts to tune of Rs. 30,000 on Alto

- The engine - Hyundai peak power of 56 BHP in 814 CC Engine, Alto also has K Series Engine where in it deliver peak power of 68 BHP in 998 cc engine

Resultant - due to pricing people start comparing Eon with Alto K10 and even of its higher end models like Eon Sportz with Santro and I10. Eon though have been able to manage sales of 5000 units in a month but unable to be beat Alto in number

Maruti Suzuki is now back with a bang to relaunch its Alto 800 cc in an all new avtar


- New 800 going to be stylish

- More fuel efficient

- has got stylish exteriors and better finish interiors

- has many hosts of features been added in Alto 800 - We expect that new Alto 800 will feature Power Window, Central Lock, Music System and even drive side airbags as optional feature

- The car going to have better shoulder room also as compared to existing Alto

- Trump card is the pricing - expect New Alto to range from 2.4 Lacs - 3.1 Lacs and will also come in CNG version with top model to be priced close to 3.5 Lacs

The launch date is fixed for 16th October - on the very day of Navratri

The sales have been falling in recent months of Alto - hope that New Alto 800 will not only address the falling sales but will also rather compensate the shortfall of numbers . there is huge euphoria been built up as per our interaction with dealer community and by sure New Alto 800 will bring in a smile on the face of entry level car buyer and Maruti Suzuki officials too.
