    is it available with both CNG and Petrol

    I am unhappy with
    the built quality of the Alto 800. It’s mediocre. I guess that’s the reason
    Maruti has its service centers spread over the country.

      I trust the quality of TATA. They have been serving us for so
      many years now. For a small car set at such an affordable price I think it has
      got quality in abundance. I really like my new Nano.

    Speeding up is an issue with the Alto 800. Touch 80kmph and you’ll feel as though you’re gonna
    end up upside down.

    • prasad

      I don’t need to reach top speeds with my Nano unless and
      until I reach my destination. This car is quite smooth & gives me a decent
      burst of speed. Had a great weekend drive!

    Driving an Alto 800 is no different from driving the maruti 800 with a/c. Considerable amount of power is consumed once you turn on the a/c. That’s quite a turn off.
