Maruti Alto 800 Engine and Performance:
To power the newly overhauled series of the Maruti's famous hatchback, a proficient 796cc engine, adopted from the previous generation of Alto, has been employed by the Indo-Japanese makers that is capable of cranking up to a maximum of 47.5bhp at 6000rpm for a peak 69Nm of torque generated at 3500rpm. Performing way better than both Maruti Alto and Maruti 800, the new Maruti Alto 800 delivers equally good results for both of its petrol and CNG line-ups. The mileage is excellent, and both kinds of fuel-consumers offer exactly the same power and torque outputs.
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.
