Any vehicle without convenience is of no use and neither of any attraction to the buyers, especially when so many offerings are available in each and every segment. The hatchback segment too is brimming with a lot many competing models that differ in the number of features and also in the standard of the comfort, it can offer. In recent years, the convenience of the driver and the passengers has been developing gradually from just mere comfort levels to luxury. Amongst all this, it is still standing as one of the best hatchbacks available in the market. The manufacturers have put in a lot of effort to make it comfy and roomy. The driver's amenities consist of features such a responsive power steering, which is offered to LXi and VXi trims 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 boot compartment capacity is of 177 litres, which can capacitate a lot of baggage within it.

External mirrors and vanity mirrors to the visors can be added in the entry level trim. Airbags could be a major necessity to add if one needs to improvise the safety quotient.

Braking & Handling

Editor's take : The ride on the Alto800 has been improved over the previous Alto, but the 12 inch tyres do not help much. The handling isn’t something to boast about as the Alto800 is now more of a tall boy design.

The braking system of this series is very well equipped and the suspension system too is very well addressed. The front axle is fitted with a gas filled McPherson strut with torsion roll control device. On the other hand, its rear axle is integrated with coil spring and gas filled shock absorbers with three link rigid axle and isolated trailing arm. The front wheels are fitted with solid disc brakes and its rear wheels are fitted with the standard drum brakes.

This mechanism is designed to freeze the engine when it detects any kind of unauthorized access to the vehicle. The top most variant is offered with a driver airbag and this too is an optional feature. This variant is additionally blessed with central locking system that is of great advantage and a safety feature as well. All the trims are fitted with tubeless tyres that are much more sturdier and give lesser scope of getting punctured during the journey. The steering wheel is collapsible which avoids any injuries to the chest during the crash. A pair of intermittent wipers and washers are fitted to the front windscreen which is very necessary in order to have a clean and clear screen and therefore a clearer visibility which avoids flaws. The rear screen is fitted with a high mount stop lamp which will serve to alert the other vehicles about the presence of this vehicle even from a very far off distance. The headlights at front have a leveling facility to them that can be regulated from inside. Seatbelts are offered to the rear seats too for better protection of the passengers. The solid disc and drum brakes that are incorporated to the wheels will additionally provide a greater control over the drive and hence reduce possible risks.

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]

    Look and Style - Alto has been a good looking car for many years. Pickup - With only one passenger, air-coditioning off and the right timing of gear change, the pickup is very good. As the engine is just 800cc, therefore pickup takes a hit at times. Mileage - I was getting an average of around 15-18 kmpl. Never tested accrurately though.
