The image is made to have an elegant appearance by applying a lot many attractive elements onto its body. The frontage has a grille that is wide and this is given in a unique design. This grille is painted in chrome to make the front view a lot more brighter. The bumper too stands out, body colored for a polished appearance.

In order to add to the already stylish side picture, the outside door handles too are layered in the body color. A strong and robust set of steel wheels adds to the exterior demeanour.

The manufacturers have put in a lot of effort to make it comfy and roomy. The driver's amenities consist of features such as a responsive power steering, which is offered to LXi and VXi models alone. This works its way through in making the driver's effort far more lesser than what one has to put in, in case of manual steering. The tailgate can be opened at the comfort of the seat itself, which is very convenient and then the fuel lid opener too can be regulated by the remote. These top end is additionally provided with features such as power enabled windows. This is a sure comfort to the driver as well as the co-passenger.

Maruti Alto 800 Expert Review

Alto 800 vs Alto K10 Comparison Review
Alto 800 vs Alto K10 Comparison Review Expert Review
The Alto brand needs no introduction. Peep outside the window, chances are there?s one parked in your building or at your office. If not, wait for a couple of minutes, it?ll pass by on the main road. Yes, it is as abundantly found in India as the housefly. The Alto is amongst the few cars which has managed to sell 20,000 units in a single month. To put that into perspective, that is 667 cars per day and roughly 28 cars in a single hour! That is one car every second minute.These are figures few companies can?t match in a quarter! And why would it not register such high volumes? For it has a near perfect recipe: digestible looks, a huge service backup and cheap spares and needless to mention - stellar fuel economy. All of this, combined with the Maruti Suzuki brand name is enough to have the first time car buyer set his foot inside the Maruti Showroom and leave with an Alto. [read more]
