This company has crossed sales of over 10 million vehicles since its provenance. Maruti is also the first company in India which promulgated CNG fitted vehicles. One of the cars from the stable of Maruti Suzuki is Alto. This hatchback segment has been built on the same platform on which 800 was built. The major traits of this car which attracts a general public at large are its low price and fuel economy. Apart from that, its low turning radius makes it easy to drive this car in heavy traffic. This company has recently added some feathers to its cap by introducing three CNG variants of Maruti Alto namely Maruti Alto Green STD BS IV, Maruti Alto Green LX BS IV and Maruti Alto Green LXI BS IV which would help in contributing to our ecosystem.
