Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 – All about enjoying our dreams:

Maruti 800 is a car we’ve always fascinated as kids and probably one of those few we’ve seen in almost every neighborhood.  The very first small car Maruti 800 was introduced which become an instant bestseller and after many years Maruti 800 was replaced by the new Alto 800. The Alto proved the legendary ancestor right and became the bestselling car in the country since its launch in 2012.

Alto 800 has always been one of those small and sweet looking Maruti cars that has been based on the current Alto platform. Embracing its perfect design, the hatchback gets leaner upper radiator grille and large trapezoidal lower grille. Headlamp cluster has been worked upon and character lines on the bonnet are as good as new, providing the car with pleasing looks. From the side, Maruti Alto 800 looks like a typical Maruti car just made a bit muscular. At the rear, the car gets a new spoiler, smaller aerofoiled tail lights and body colored bumper. Maruti Alto 800 is available in 6 color variants such as Blazing Red, Granite Grey, Mojito Green, Superior White, Cerulean Blue and Silky Silver.
