Maruti Suzuki India has launched the new Alto 800 small car in India with a starting price of Rs 2.44 lakhs. The top variant will be available for a price of Rs 3.56 lakhs. New Maruti Alto 800 will be available in three variants, two petrol and one CNG variant. The petrol variants will deliver a mileage of 22.7 kmpl while the CNG variant will deliver a mileage of 30 kmpl. Petrol Alto 800 and CNG Alto 800 are both powered by 796 cc three cylinder engine generating 45.7 bhp and 40 bhp respectively. Peak torque delivered is at 69 Nm and 56 Nm.

Maruti Alto 800 offers  a good 15% mileage more than what is being offered on the current Alto. This is also the one fact that will quickly endear Alto 800 to buyers in India who are more concerned about fuel efficiency specially since petrol prices are continually on the rise. Maruti Suzuki have also promised a new CNG variant that is set to enter Indian markets and this is also expected to be a major crowd puller. Maruti Suzuki India Limited has spent close to Rs.470 crores on the development of their new Alto800 in a bid to once again claim their market share.

At the ongoing launch event in New Delhi, Maruti Suzuki also stated that they have received over 10,000 bookings for the new Alto already. Maruti Suzuki India is expecting to receive even more bookings in the coming weeks. New Maruti Alto 800 is offered in six color options, Superior White, Granite Gray, Torque Blue, Silky Silver, Blazing Red and Frost Blue. One more important thing to note here is the addition of a driver side airbag and the omission of passenger side view mirror.
