Pros : Mileage, Comfort, Pricing

Cons : Rear look

Look and Style: Even though the company has pumped in a lot of efforts in changing the looks of the car and they are quite successful also but I personally feel that even tata nano looks better than the new Alto. Although the new alto has good headlamps, and an amazing grille. Comfort Being an entry level car You can't expect a lot of comfort from this car but this car will surely not let you down. Space is optimum and seats are quite comfortable even on long drives. 

Pickup : Pickup is good but not as good as the k10 version obviously because of the smaller engine but yes the pickup is good and city traffic is never a problem. 

Mileage : This is the USP of this car..22.7 kmpl is something which makes up your mind. 

Best Features : Mileage, Comfort, Pricing 

Needs to improve:  Rear look. 

Overall Experience : Amazing entry level car which will make Maruti happy by sales.

    The back seat of the car is very small and uncomfortable. I usually like Maruti cars but this car has disappointed me. |22 Oct,2012 08:58:57 PM

    Cars like alto 800 are not meant for people with good height as the space and legroom are constraints in small cars. Even In 800 previous version the space was very less but for families of low height or small families find these small cars convenient and good for them.

    I feel that the Alto 800 has been over hyped. Tata Nano is a better car than Alto 800 |25 Oct,2012 12:18:43 AM

    Yes, Kind of. I even posted on my review post that in terms of looks..I found Tata nano much better.

    what about the a.c ??????? |22 Oct,2012 09:00:54 PM

    A.C. is superb without any problem. Also the car is launched in end of summers so cooling of A.C cant be judged well.

    What abt CNG, its performance & how much CNG can be carried in it... is it worth taking CNG Variant.... |23 Oct,2012 11:10:42 AM

    Since the cng is company need not worry about the performance... The cylinder has capacity of 12Kg...

  • abhinav |23 Oct,2012 08:58:56 PM

    very nice car......

    mohit |29 Oct,2012 06:51:31 PM

    While I agree this is going to be a key competitor, I have to say that the design looks frustrating, especially from the side and back.

    pratik |30 Oct,2012 05:42:23 PM

    One of the most frustrating things about the Alto 800 is the look of the car. The back look of the car is very bad and also the back seat space is too less. Tata Nano is another car for middle class people but the car is worth the cost.

  • YOGESH AHIRE |25 Oct,2012 05:40:08 PM

    NEW alto 800 IS STYLIST, prise is more then tata nano so my choice is tata nano

  • ranjan tyagi |27 Oct,2012 04:57:31 PM

    should i go for alto 800 lxi petrol model or alto k 10 vxi petrol as ...........i feel in somethings alto k10 is good as its of 998cc but at d same time i find alto 800 more stylish in looks nd also its of lesser price as compared to k10....... |27 Oct,2012 06:36:56 PM

    According to me the K10 alto has much better looks, interiors, and as well as power when compared to alto 800. But if you are looking for good car in lesser price bracket than go for alto 800. The car won't disappoint you as company has given a lot of attention to this new car. The choice is all yours!!

    Go for ALTOK10 VXI if you prefer quality over money..

  • pushparaj |22 Nov,2012 09:00:49 AM

    can any one please advice me on ALTO CNG I will be driving more then 100km daily. many people says I have to spent huge amount on CNG car for maintenance and still car wont last long. Please advice. |23 Nov,2012 10:53:56 AM

    Go for CNG version as your daily run is huge..although company fitted cng doesn't require much maintenance but if we take worst case, even then the cng version will cover up and give you benefits over petrol version.. Do tell me about your decision..cheers :)
