Maruti Alto was launched in India on 27th September 2000. From that day, Alto has gone through several iterations, and yet, it is one of the most successfully running models on the Indian market today. The fifth generation of the Maruti Alto prototype produced by Suzuki was brought to India as the first-generation model. After a few years, Maruti gave the Alto a mid-life facelift, followed by a complete generation change in 2012. However, Maruti also launched the 1.0-litre version of the Alto and named it the Alto K10. The year 2019 marks Alto’s transition from BS-IV to BS-VI.

Maruti Alto EXPERT REVIEWS

With over 40 lakh sales under its belt, the Maruti Suzuki Alto has remained the first choice for entry-level hatchback buyers for over 20 years now. The Alto has been the best-seller for 16 consecutive years in India. The peace of mind that you get after buying the Alto has been its major USP. The car is immensely reliable as well as exceptionally light on your pocket. Though it has several downsides like lack of performance, poor build quality, and absence of features like touchscreen infotainment system and AMT gearbox, it is still the most practical option for middle-class people or first-time buyers.

The ease of ownership, cost of maintenance and spare parts, reliable engine, good cabin insulation, and CNG option all give it an edge over other models like the Renault Kwid.

The Alto comes equipped with convenient features like keyless entry, central locking, front power windows, and essential safety features like front airbags, ABS, and seat belt reminders.

The Alto is powered by Maruti's tried and tested 786cc petrol engine that produces 48hp of power and 69 Nm of torque. The car lacks performance and isn't the best option for long highway rides. However, the Alto shines in city duties with its light and beginner-friendly character. The Alto retains a mileage of 22.05 km/l (ARAI claimed), and if you drive on CNG, it will retain a mileage of 31.59km/kg.

By far, the Alto is the most appropriate option for first-time car buyers looking for an entry-level hatchback. The Alto 800 is economical on the pocket and is perfect for city commutes. However, space and performance are a massive concern for Alto. So, if you have a slightly bigger family or if you need a bit more fun-to-drive car, it's best to look for other options in the market.
