Features a facelifted front-end and minor revisions to the interior.
Overdrive reports that Maruti will launch the facelifted Maruti Alto 800 tomorrow for sale. There are minor changes to its exterior and interior, although nothing significant to write home about. The grade levels are same as the current car and prices could be more or less the same.
The exterior of the facelifted Alto 800 features a slightly redesigned front end with a a slimmer and longer upper grille, new headlight clusters, repositioned Suzuki logo and a gaping hexagonal radiator grille. With the new bumper, the Alto 800 is slightly longer than the outgoing model (from 3,395 mm to 3,430 mm).
When Autocar posted their first drive review of the facelifted Maruti Alto 800, they reported that the common change in the interior is the new fabric upholstery for the seats and door pads. The base trim level is now fitted with a passenger side exterior mirror as standard, while the LXi and VXi trim levels feature additional storage space at the back and a child-safety lock. Also a rear spoiler, full wheel covers, front power windows and central locking have been made standard offerings.
Under the hood, Maruti hasn’t made any changes, and the car;s powered by a 0.8-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that makes 48 PS (47 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 69 Nm at 3,500 rpm, paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.
