Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 heads to Nepal

Added in: Maruti Suzuki


The Maruti Alto 800 has to be the most successful cars from Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. in recent times. The Alto 800, which is MSIL’s A segment contender and has been selling in great numbers, commands a huge waiting period and has made life tough for its immediate rivals, the Chevrolet Spark and the Hyundai Eon.

The Alto 800 is a comprehensively updated version of the earlier Alto and has been clocking even better nos. on the sales chart than the last generation car. The Alto 800 builds up on the strengths of the earlier Alto and comes with a highly fuel efficient engine, low maintenance costs and reasonable space for a small family of four. The only thing that might make the Alto 800 an even better package is a diesel engine.

The car does have an exterior styling that might not appeal to some but insipid exteriors notwithstanding, the Alto 800 has everything required to woo the small car buyer.

The Alto 800 is now ready to enter then Nepal car market and will be imported into Nepal by CG Automobiles.
