CNG options are priced between Rs.3.19 lakhs for the base model and Rs.3.56 lakhs for the LXi and though priced aggressively, considering that these give outstanding mileage of 30.36 kmpl a Rs.30,000 to Rs.40,000 increase is not much to ask.

Offered in bright shades of Blazing Red Pearl, Torque Blue Pearl, Granite Grey White and Silver on its exteriors customers are given a choice of two interior shades of Brown and Grey. There are a number of updates seen in its engine as well. Alto 800 possesses the same 796cc 3 cylinder 12 valve engine seen on its earlier model but with a performance and fuel efficiency boost which makes the engine now offer 47 bhp power and 69 Nm torque.

This is a 3 bhp and 6 Nm increase as compared to its earlier model. Fuel efficiency on the earlier model was at 19.7 kmpl while this has been upped to 22.7 kmpl in the current model which may be just 3 kmpl but will go a long way in an age in which fuel prices are continually being increased.

  • Sonali Pawar

    Decent car at a decent price … go for it.

    • sagar

      The cost
      of the car starts from 2.44lakhs and reaches up to 3.88lakhs which are too
      high costs quoted by Maruti keeping in mind the features and looks of the
      car.

        I would
        appreciate the features of the car if it’s value for money. 2.44 lakh seems
        to be too high a cost. I would rather buy a Tata Nano maybe..
