The Maruti Alto 800 is getting ready to go places and the car will be showcased to the Algerians at the Car Show of Algiers that is scheduled to take place from March 19 to March 29.

Just like India, a car need not necessarily have safety features like ABS and crumple zones to be sold in Algeria. However, the highest variant of Alto 800 comes with driver side airbag as an option.

The Alto 800 is expected to go on sale shortly after the exhibition and it is needless to say that it is exported from India. Algeria has an affinity towards India made cars, the Ford Figo has been just launched there and the old school made-in-India Hyundai Accent is still selling by the thousands every month.

The new Maruti Alto 800 was launched in India during October last year. The car retained its ancient mechanical carriage but sported a completed overhauled interior that played a big part in boosting the sales.

The Alto 800 is powered by a three cylinder petrol motor which makes an improved 48 bhp and returns 15% better fuel economy compared to the F8D edition. The car gets some tweaks to the suspension for a better ride and that is where the changes with respect to its predecessor ends mechanically.

By sending the Alto 800 to Algeria, Maruti would be keen to increase its export revenue.
