Pros : Comfortable to drive, spacious, value for money

Cons : reverse gear does not work at times


Hello everyone...I own a Maruti Alto and it has been 3 years now. The top end variant of Alto Lxi is what I settled for. As it was my first car I did not want to invest much as I was not very sure of my driving. It was on this Alto that I mastered my skills. The moment I got my Alto and touched the steering wheel, the intial feeling it gave me cannot be described in words. The car is so easy to drive, the controls are clearly placed and the maintenance required is really low. The company seems to have made all intelligent choices with Alto. I opted for Vxi model as it gave me features like Power steering etc. Last year I went to Kullu-Manali and to my surprise I found that the locals there were using Alto as the official vehicle to reach Rohtang, which is one of the toughest peaks in India. This is enough of a testimony to the fact that Alto is a tough, intelligently designed small package from Maruti Suzuki India. I also found the seating capacity sufficient for 5 adults. The leg-room and head room are very nice. I actually drive with my kid sitting on my lap and the space is still sufficiently enough. The gear shift from 3rd to the 2nd gear is pretty hard and the reverse gear sometimes causes problem to be applied in the first go. Rest, I have not encountered any major issue with the car. I have purchased two more cars after Alto, yet I have a great connect with my Alto, it might be because it was my first car.

    Hi Sid, I can stand by your side in favour of Alto till the world ends...I got my Alto VXi 1.1 in Jan'2002 and till date, I am cherishing every moment driven in it. It??s a rocket and drives with precise steering like laser-guided missile...and beats almost every car in hatch-back segment even today. One super car Maruti gave us to have a flight every day...In Mumbai rush-hour traffic !!! And now VXi is back with K10 ... more the merrier :)
