Guys, what does contemporary style mean to you? Is it something wearing against your features and personality?... just because you need to be contemporary?  No matter how odd it seems to be? Many experts and enthusiasts are saying that new Alto 2012 edition is coming up with all new contemporary look. However, pictures revealed in many websites are saying just the opposite.  Definitely the car has lots of changes but how much do they contribute in overall design aspect? – questions remain unanswered. The fascia looks robust with new fresh grills and raised head lamps but not balanced with rest of the body contours. Shorter length with slightly increased width and height became visibly disproportionate with the front. To add more agony to it, bigger wheel gap against smaller twelve inch wheel resembles those honchos who carefully upgrade their chest and biceps but forget about their lower half. Inside of the car has a refreshing dashboard than its predecessor which again is imbalanced in using curves, especially, the instrument console. The shape of it is extremely against the curvature it maintained all through the dash. It seems that designers had been into copy-paste mode in extreme hurry and couldn’t pay much attention in its synergy. These entire disharmonies in design might not hamper new Alto’s sales figure because of its sheer performance record and reliability but might not make it stand in the row with contemporary design excellence!

    Dear Madhu, Please visit any Maruti dealership in your locality for your need. Every showroom, now a days have people from different banks sitting there to offer suitable bank loans to its customers. You may also contact your bank for the same. Among all, State Bank of India offers most lucrative loan offers as I heard. Wish you good luck for owning your dream car soon :-)
