The top-end VXI Airbag trim comes powered by a 0.8-litre 3-cylinder, 12-valve petrol mill that can displace 796cc. This engine produces 47.3bhp of power at 6000rpm and yields about 69Nm of peak torque at 3500rpm. This engine is coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox that sends the engine power to the front wheels of this hatch. This top end version gets a few additional safety features in the form of a singular air bag for the driver for enhanced protection, which is missing in the existing VXi trim. Apart from this, rest of the features remained to be the same as prevalent VXi trim in the model line up.
Maruti Alto 800 has a tank capacity of 35 litre, to know that how much petrol is left in the tank, divide 35 with the total no. of bars say 10, then if the fuel gauge indicates 2 bars it means there is 7 litres fuel left in your tank.
The 2-year warranty is for the engine and transmission box while other components like tyres and battery are come under respective manufacturers' warranty. Like if you have Exide battery, the warranty claim will be handled by Exide not Maruti Suzuki, the dealer must have provided you the warranty card at the time of purchase.
To say that the new Alto 800 is not upto the mark of the old Alto Lxi is not true. The new Alto 800 is a more refined car than the old version. Also Maruti has worked very hard to make the steering more agile. It also looks more pretty. But, if you want an Alto that is more agile and spunky, you can go for the Alto K10. The K10 is also a very good car and is very nimble. The Alto range is very reliable and brilliant city cars.
