Whoever is slight bit knowledgeable about the auto industry would know that
10 years is a long long time for a car to be the best seller in the market
and 10 years is also a long time for car to do so without any serious
update. But that scenario has now changed. This is the Maurti Alto 800
which has been launched to take the place of the legendary Maruti 800 and
the Alto, which we all know almost, revolutionized the automobile industry
in India. But filling in those shoes would be very very difficult for a
But before you jump to any conclusion, let me tell you that although it has
the number 800 in its name, it hardly has any similarity with the earlier
Maruti 800. It has been put there just differentiate it from the Maruti
Alto K10 and the Maruti Alto 800.
So what's new in the Maruti Alto 800 after all? We firstly it has an
all-new front. But wait! The front may uncannily remind you of the Maruti
A-Star. Yes it looks very much similar to Maruti A-Star. In fact it is not
just the front, a lot of design features of the A-Star has been used in the
Alto 800. But it is certainly not an out & out copy of the A-Star. So you
will not be wrong if you call the A-Star an inspiration for the Alto 800.
The headlights are located a little higher compared to the earlier Altos
and comes with black detailing inside. The grille looks much like the one
you see on the Ford Figo, with a chrome strip running across it in the
middle. Under the grille is the all-black air dam. Overall, the front looks
quite sporty and gives a good appearance to the hatch.
Did we not tell you that a lot of inspiration has been taken from the
A-Star? Come to back and you will see the A-Star like taillights and
bumper. But it does make the rear look a lot different than the previous
Alto. In fact it hardly looks like an evolution of Alto from the back.
Rather it looks like a completely new car.
The side profile is again similar to what you see on the A-Star. While the
size of the rear windows have gone smaller, overall the car has grown in
Because of this tallness, the headroom in the Alto 800 is significantly
higher. And it is not just headroom, legroom have also increased quite a
bit, 15mm to be exact, with the scooping out of the front seats. This
feature you can also see in the Alto K10.
The dash and the interior overall is sensibly designed and looks all-new.
The steering wheel in completely new and the side aircon vents are now
circular. But the aircon controls are same as the previous Alto. The
high-end LXi model you will get a driver airbag and an optional ABS system.
Under the hood, the Alto 800 gets Mauti's well-known F8D engine, but with
some improvements. The improved engine gives a max output and torque of
48PS and 69Nm, which is 11% more than the previous model. Mileage is also
encouraging with 22kmpl.
You can feel the improvement in the Alto 800 engine as it feels much
smoother compared to the older one. The starting judder that was felt
earlier has been completely eliminated. It handles quite well in both
straight drive as well as in tight turns. Ride quality of the Alto 800 has
also improved and feels less bumpy this time. On the negative side, the
steering feels a little heavier. But with time one will get used to this I
So overall, the Alto 800 looks fresh and has been well packaged. If you
want to go for this one then we recommend that you do. But will it be able
to fill in the shoes of the Alto and the Maruti 800. We don't think so.
Simply because there are too many options available in the market this

With its desirable Swift supermini, Suzuki proved it could make a small car
with character. But while the Alto is cute, it feels bland inside. Suzuki
charges more for it than the identical Nissan Pixo (developed alongside it)
and in doing so raises expectations of quality and driver appeal. It gets
the basics right: the ride is mostly comfy, it's spacious up front and
cheap to run. However, the boot is tiny, the driving position doesn't
adjust much, and the top spec is priced against superior rivals like the VW
