Over all Review of Maruti Alto 800 Base

Maruti Alto 800 Base Price

Overall Review

Maruti Suzuki is credited for bringing in Automobile revolution in India. They were the first company produce cars in at a large scale and sell more than 10 lakhs. In the year 2000, they launched Maruti Alto which has been shattering the record charts ever since then. It has been tagged with the label of best selling hatchback in India. And it single handedly took Maruti Suzuki venture to new heights. Although Alto had been in production since 1979 but it was after more than 20 years that India got a taste with the fifth generation Alto that was an Indian Built version. And this time after twelve years, Maruti decided to give it a fresh new start under the tag name of Alto 800. Under the hood, Maruti Alto 800 Base has the same engine that the previous model had. But there have been many tweaks and changes done to add good amount of power, fuel efficiency and performance. The outer body has been made more compact, high mounted headlights and has got striking looks too. The change in outer body allows opening up more space in the inside. In first look, the interiors look much more organized and certain new elements have also been added to it. Also Maruti has decided to provide some optional package like the airbag, CNG kit to go with car.

Mileage and Fuel Economy

The fuel economy alone is the biggest factor contributing for the sale for the Maruti Alto 800 Base. As there are no major specifications changed in the engine and transmission system but has got some new tweaks and modifications, Maruti claims that this car will gain a major improvement in fuel efficiency with 22.7kmpl( as in the ARAI tests). Also the light weight and the dynamicity significantly contribute to this fuel efficiency.

Colors

Originally the Alto was launched in 6 colors namely Ecru Beige, Superior White, Midnight Black, Fire Brick Red, Blue Blaze and Silky Silver. And the similar shades are available with the all new Maruti Alto 800 Base and company says that they would be shortly rolling out new ones also.

Acceleration and Pick up

The F8D engine produces a decent acceleration in the all new Alto 800 and many tests show that the 100km mark can be reached with a time difference of about two seconds than the previous one, that time being 16.4 seconds. And the car manufacturers claim that the Maruti Alto 800 Base can easily hit the top speed of 160kmph.

Appearance

On first look, it looks completely different from the original Alto; it’s a very simple design. It has high mounted headlights, “c” pillar at the rear of the car helps determine that this is an Alto. It has been built using the same platform but with a completely different body which is a taller. The petal shaped headlamps, open mouthed look with a 2 part grille; character lines across the doors all look beautiful. The rear also has petal shaped tail lamps and concavity too. The roof of the car also gets stiffness to keep the rigidity. Overall, this new Maruti Alto 800 Base looks quite modish and will appeal to the gen next.

Comfort Feature

The Alto 800 opens up good amount of space inside the car and the interiors are of good quality also. The centre console has been crafted with a chrome finish. The air conditioner vents which were rectangular earlier are now changed to circular shapes for better circulation of air. The legroom for rear seats definitely has more space. And for storage needs, the rear seats can also be folded for additional boot space. There is a 3 spoke steering wheel and one single meter instrument panel gives a good look. Also for more convenience, a small space has also opened up just above the glove box and there is more space around the central tunnel for storing bottle, magazines etc.

Dimensions

The new Alto 800 is more compacted than ever before. The dimensions have changed a bit; the overall length, width and height are 3395mm X 1490mm X 1475mm. The wheelbase hasn’t been changed and it measures out to be 2360mm. The weight of the car comes down to 720kgs. And it has a fuel tank capacity of 35litres.

Engine

The Alto 800 relies on the tried and tested F8D engine which has 13 valves and 3 cylinders for its power and high performance. Also there has been many small changes and modifications been done to add up the overall power, torque and fuel efficiency. The maximum power output is 48bhp at the rate of 6000rpm and the improvement of maximum torque to 68.6Nm at the rate of 3500rpm. The manual transmission with 5 speed gearbox has also been improved; it is now a cable shift which feels better without the jerks and hiccups.

Wheels

The tyres are of decent quality which can easily survive he shocks and wear and tear offered by the road.  The tyre type is 145/80 R12, 12inch being the tyre size. And the very good ground clearance of 160mm is big enough to look odd from certain angles.

Suspension

The all new Alto 800 has gone with the same suspension system as it was before. The front suspension is a gas filled Mac Pherson strut which has a torsion roll control device. And the rears suspension has a coil spring as usual but also comes with a three link rigid axle and isolating trailing arm. And the rear suspension has also got the similar gas filled shock absorbers.

Handling and Control

The front brakes are the solid disc brakes and the rear brakes are the drum brakes. Both of these provide a good control over the Alto 800. Also the addition of gas dampers has made the car more dynamic too. Plus the power assisted steering has good weight distribution and stiffness. The handling and controls are great considering that is a small car and can easily pass through tighter curves.

Pros

Value for money.
The brand name.
Great fuel efficiency.

Cons

The Power and torque output.
At higher speeds, car vibrates too much.

At higher speeds, car vibrates too much.

Maruti has revealed the next generation of Maruti Alto 800 and the design of this new model is totally refreshing and trendy. The company has given a fresh design to the car and its fuel efficiency along with its performance is also enhanced. There are 7 variants of this new model and with the increase in their prices, there is an increase in the number of features. Four variants of this model consume petrol and three of them are CNG as well as petrol burners. Maruti Alto 800 Base is the starting variant of this car and the price in which it comes in is extremely affordable. A must mention here is the combination of its price and the number of features it has been provided with. No other company can provide as many features in such a low price. The engine making this model run is a 0.8 liter, 3-cylinder, 9 valves, FWD engine with the displacement of 796cc. The engine has been linked with a 5-speed manual transmission system. The highest power outcome by the engine is 47.3BHP found at an acceleration mark of 6000RPM with the highest torque value of 69Nm highest at an acceleration mark of 3500RPM. The car is excellent when it comes to performance and the highest speed of the car is set at 140kmpl. However, if the rivals are cared for, Spark or Eon, on papers, Alto 800 has the least power generation; although, since it is a typical city car, the user won't mind its power geneation, since from among the contemporary city cars in the market, this one is the most maneuverable. No-noise is one of the most attractive features.  Maruti Alto 800 Base has been launched for the people who want a car which is affordable, reliable and standard. The fuel efficiency of this car is highly renowned. The petrol variants of this car are able to deliver a healthy mileage of 22.74kmpl. The company has given this car a large fuel tank with the storage space for 35liters. The car is very comfortable and spacious for the passengers. The overall length of the car is 3395mm, width is 1490mm and height is 1475mm. The kerb weight scored by the machine is 695kg. The wheelbase and the minimum ground clearance found in the vehicle is 2360mm and 160mm respectively.

The turning radius of the car is good 4.6m. The tyres supporting the car are 145/80 R12 inches tubeless tyres. Braking system of the car are suitable wherein front wheels are presented with solid disc brake and the rear wheels are presented with drum type brakes. Suspensions smoothing the journey are gas filled MacPherson strut with torsion roll control device fitted at the front side and coil spring and gas filled shock absorbers with three link rigid axle isolated trailing arm fitted at the rear side. Maruti Alto 800 Base lacks some features like air bags, air conditioner with heater, front door trim map pocket, remote fuel lid & back door opener, power steering, digital clock, outside mirror internally adjustable, body colored bumpers, body colored outside door handles, full wheel covers and many more which are available in its top variant. The interiors of this car look decent with the presence of C pillar lower trim, cabin lights in three positions, floor carpet, floor console, Grey color interior, double vinyl seat upholstery and sun-visor on driver side. However still, the low interior space will earn a lot of disapproval from some. Specially if the interiors of its rivals are compared, Alto 800 might stand quite depressing. The exteriors are simple and sober with the allotment of wavefront design and stylish front bumper & grille. Safety is concerned by the company which led to the installment of head light leveling, high mounted stop lamp, immobilizer, 2 speed intermittent front wiper & washer, collapsible steering column and tubeless tyres. One drawback, a major one at that, is the lack of rearview mirror on the left in this base variant. The company has also given several color options with this car to the people of the country and the options are Superior White, Silky Silver, New Granite Grey, New Torque Blue, New Blazing Red and New Forest Blue.
