As per some information and industry predictions, the car will be placed somewhere between Rs. 2.5 to Rs. 3.3 lacs. Checking past records of the car maker, Maruti has never disappointed people with the price & class, and it is anticipated that this time also the price will be very much commensurable against the features provided within the car.

According to sources, the new Alto 800 will deliver a mileage of over 22 kmpl, which will be quite impressive in the small car segment. To buyer’s surprise, the dual fuel variant, petrol & CNG, of new Alto 800 will cover a distance of more than 30 kmpl.
The manufacturer is all set to strengthen its position in the small car segment and hopefully, the new Alto 800 will give a tough competition to its counterparts – Hyundai Eon and Tata Nano. As per the information provided by CarTrade.com experts, the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 reviews till now mention the optimism of buyers about the car and its performance. The industry experts have announced the model as revolutionary and expect a major rise in the overall sales of the car manufacturer, which will probably reduce the margin of its rival companies in the Indian automobile industry.
The Indian automobile market mainly relies on sales from the small car segment, which happens to be slightly higher than the premium segment models. With its new launch in this festive season, Maruti Suzuki is expecting that a large number of Indians are going to fulfil their dream of owning a car and thus, Diwali is anticipated to be a big celebration for buyers as well as for auto makers.
