Maruti Alto 800: Power to the people

You could call the Maruti Alto the workhorse of the nation. You’ll find it zipping past every nook and corner of the country. In fact, there are so many around that you’d be forgiven for thinking it has become India’s national choice of transport. But the Alto is the Alto for good reason.

It may not appeal to the enthusiast, but it has everything that the average joe looks for in a car – fuel efficient engine, attractive price tag, you name it. You’d think one would be a bit of a dimwit to go and fix what’s not broken. But Maruti has done just that. It has applied the scalpel (and lots of other tools) to give you an almost completely new Alto.
