Pros : Value for money features

Cons : not enough leg room

Look and Style: I like the looks of my Maruti Alto as the car is comparable to Maruti 800 in terms of price, but is far ahead when it comes to the looks of the car. More than attractive I can call it intelligent as the company has provided the most integral features and curbed the cost to minimum. While inside the car, one does not really feel that the car is an entry level hatchback. In all, I like both the interiors and exteriors of Maruti Alto. The seating is also spacious. Comfort: The car is quite comfortable to sit and also to drive. I feel that the leg room and head room should be a bit more as the car can have a space crunch for passengers with a good height. For 4 adults the car offers ample seating space. We are travel freaks as a family and have made 3-4 out station trips to Dehradun, Delhi and Agra. The car was a delight to drive and very comfortable. The driving seat offers enough of space to allow me drive with my 2 year old kid sitting on my lap. The ingress and egress are comfortable as well. Pickup; The pick of the car is nice, however it is a bit let down when the AC is switched on. The car gets heavy to pick up while in traffic if the AC is switched on. Otherwise, it is not an issue overall. Mileage: I get a mileage of approximately 16 kmpl in city areas. The walled city of Jaipur is one of the most crowded places in the city and the car has always proved to be fuel efficient whether in city or on highways.  Best Features: Some of the best features of the car include riding comfort and easy to operate gear shift. The gear shift is extremely smooth and glides like water, which makes driving an absolute joy and pleasurable experience.  Needs to improve: The pick-up and acceleration can be improved to a great level as the same is a let down when the AC is switched on and in heavy traffic conditions.  Overall Experience: The overall experience with my Maruti Alto has been great and I have cherished every bit of it. The car has been a great performer on road and has always made me proud as an owner.

    The new refreshed alto is the best car for an economic class family. It has a stylish appearance. Value for money is great. The best thing is the fuel efficiency, the classy refreshed interior(though not the best,it is the best compared to the cars at its standard) and the iCATS(intelligent Computerised Anti-Theft System) that's found only in high end cars. The problems: The car is not locked as soon as we start the engine. It's locked after the car picks a speed of 20kph and goes that way or faster for some time. Dashboard is too high, making it a little difficult to drive, its quite visible, but maruti 800 has larger windscreen.
