Cons : No CD Player even in its new top VXI variant

Look and Style : Decent looking car,better than its predecessor.Many would prefer Hyundai EON because of its looks (even I wanted to buy Eon) but the fact is,EON is not stable at medium and high speeds because EON has fibre body and ALTO 800 has full metal body so ALTO 800 handles high speeds very well (I personally have driven ALTO 800 to speed of 140 kmph with 3 persons in it). 

Comfort : Good ,but not for long drives,but then this car is for city's cramped narrow lanes so considering that the comfort is excellent because it is bigger than its predecessor and also than the Alto and somewhat equal to the Ritz (I previously had both old 800 and Ritz ZXI).

Pickup : Let me share the lesser-known-fact about any new car.All the companies put a 'Governer' (kind of a speed limiter) which they remove after 1st Service (which is 1000 kms). Due to this, the pick-up would be sluggish and mileage would be very low till they remove the 'Governer'. They do this because the engine of new cars needs to settle down and the engine should not go over 100 kmph till it is settled. 

Best Features : Fully metal body, Air-conditioner, Gear shift,interior and boot Space,headroom. 

Needs to improve : At this price, it lacks some of the features,they should be giving CD player,central locking,speed sensing door locks.

Overall Experience : Very pleasant, as you won't regret buying this car that's for sure because this is the best small car available.
