Maruti Suzuki expects new Alto 800 to create car sales record in India this Diwali
Hyundai Eon and Tata Nano will feel hot under the collar as sales of Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 are expected to reach heights this upcoming season specially with festive discounts adding to the glitter. Not to be bogged down by rising competition from Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai too is also offering a 12% festive discount on their new Hyundai Eon while Tata Motors is offering free equipment of Rs.25,000 on the new Nano.
Alto 800 is priced at between Rs.2,.44 lakhs to Rs.3.19 lakhs (ex showroom Delhi) while the Alto CNG is priced between Rs.3.19 lakhs to Rs.3.56 lakhs. With these prices, Maruti Suzuki hopes to attract younger buyers or first time buyers and is hoping to see similar performance which was experienced when the company launched the Alto which in its hay days turned out to be the best selling car on Indian roads.
