Maruti Alto Review

09 Dec, 2022 04:45 PM

Expert Review by Maxabout


Maruti Suzuki has celebrated two decades on Indian roads since its debut in 2000. In case you didn't already know, the hatchback has sold over 38 lakh units and was India's first entry-level automobile to be BS6-compliant. The Maruti Suzuki Alto is without a doubt India's best-selling entry-level hatchback. We know it well for its low fuel consumption and low maintenance expenses. The simple mechanics and enough cabin capacity for a small family contribute to Alto's sales. Maruti has begun manufacturing the next-generation Alto, which is expected to be released soon.

Maruti Suzuki Alto Design and Style

From the outside, the new Maruti Alto looks simple and now has a sleeker grille design with a large Suzuki emblem in the centre. The bumper design is new, and the sharper creases make it appear sportier. The blacked-out mesh pattern on Alto's face, as well as the headlight design, are both intriguing. There are provisions for fog lights as well, but they are not standard equipment. When viewed from the side, the 12-inch steel wheels covered in R12 profile rubber complement the hatchback nicely. Body-coloured door handles and outside rearview mirrors are also included on the top-spec VXI Plus model. The rear profile maintains the simple design approach from before, with few changes.

2023 Maruti Alto has a length of 3445 mm, a width of 1515 mm, and a height of 1475 mm. It has a 2360 mm wheelbase, which is enough for a car of this size, and a ground clearance of 160 mm. It should be noted that Alto's length has been increased by 50mm over the previous model. This extra length is because of the improved bumper design, which helps Alto comply with the new pedestrian standards. The hatchback has a petrol tank size of 35 litres and luggage carrying capacity of 177 litres.

Maruti Suzuki Alto Engine and Gearbox

A 796cc, three-cylinder, 12-valve, 0.8-litre BS6-compliant petrol engine powers new Maruti Suzuki Alto. This petrol engine produces 47.3 HP of maximum power at 6000 RPM and 69 Nm of peak torque at 3500 RPM. The Maruti Alto now has a bi-fuel option, comes included with a CNG kit and is dubbed 'S-CNG' by Maruti. This fuel choice is only available on LXI and LXI (O) models. The Maruti Alto CNG produces 40.2 HP of maximum power at 6000 RPM and 60 Nm of peak torque. Both the powertrains come standard with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Alto's petrol engine may not offer remarkable stats on paper, but keep in mind the hatchback's lightweight. Alto does not feel underpowered at all because of its lightweight build. In the city, the car feels wonderful to drive, and speedy overtaking is simple. Driving the hatchback in bumper-to-bumper traffic is also quite simple because there is no need to regularly shift gears. When completely loaded, however, it will not operate as effectively.

The power figures are much lower for the CNG type, which you'll notice as soon as you get behind the wheel. When the air conditioning is turned on, the car struggles over flyovers and performs poorly when fully loaded. However, this is a car designed for city driving or very infrequent interstate use.

Maruti Suzuki Alto Suspension, Brakes and Tyres

Maruti has suspended the new Alto using a MacPherson Strut in the front and a 3-Link Rigid Axle Suspension in the rear. The front disc brakes and rear drum brakes in Maruti Alto provide the adequate braking capability. Maruti has fitted the new Alto with 12-inch steel wheels encased in tubeless 145/80 R12 tyres.

The ride quality provided by the new Maruti Suzuki Alto is excellent in urban environments. However, things don't get any better once you drive on the rutted tarmac. At speeds above 80 km/h, there is excessive road and tyre noise. The Alto has very little body roll in corners, and the steering, despite being weightless, is rather direct.

Interior and Instrument Console of Maruti Suzuki Alto

Like its appearance, new Maruti Alto's cabin is well-designed, the dual-tone black and the beige colour combination looks trendy and is appropriately airy. The steering wheel, AC vents, door handles, and the infotainment system all have silver highlights. Maruti Suzuki Alto includes a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with modern connectivity capabilities such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with Bluetooth and Aux-in support.

2023 Maruti Alto gets manual HVAC, a 12V pocket socket, full folding rear seats, front and rear cup holders, front power windows, internally adjustable outside rear view mirrors, front door pockets, roof-mounted antenna, headlight leveller, two speakers, central locking, and 4-way manually adjustable drivers and front passenger seats.

The seats in the new Maruti Alto are adequate for the price of this hatchback. For enhanced support on longer journeys, more boosting may be required. It also lacks the ability to adjust the height of the driver. Overall, it's a four-seater hatchback with little space in the back for a third passenger.

Key Features of Maruti Suzuki Alto

The base hatchback has a new dual-tone dashboard, a double-DIN entertainment system, USB, Bluetooth, and AUX-in connectivity. The top-spec models additionally include keyless entry, central door locking, front electric windows, and internally adjustable ORVMs.

According to its affordability, the new Maruti Alto has a reasonable set of safety features. Standard features include a driver-side airbag, anti-lock braking with electronic brake-force distribution, a high-speed alert system, front seat belt warning, brake assist, engine immobilizer, central locking, rear child lock, and clever reverse parking sensors. Dual front airbags are standard on the Maruti Alto VXI and VXI+ models.

Top Speed and Mileage of Maruti Suzuki Alto

The top speed of the 2023 Maruti Suzuki Alto is around 140 km/h and the ARAI claimed mileage of the Maruti Suzuki Alto is 22.05 km/l for the petrol version and 31.59 km/kg for the CNG version.

Maruti Suzuki Alto Colour Options

There are six exterior colour options to pick from : Solid White, Silky Silver, Granite Grey, Cerulean Blue, Mojito Green, and Uptown Red.

Maruti Suzuki Alto Competitors

Cars that compete with the new Maruti Suzuki Alto in the Indian market include the Renault KWID, Datsun Redi-GO, Maruti S-Presso, Maruti Celerio, and Hyundai Santro.


Despite the fact that new Maruti Suzuki was the first to introduce the BS6 engine in the entry-level hatchback segment, it is the improved aesthetics and addition of now-mandatory safety features that make the Alto a more compelling package than before. If you're looking for an entry-level hatchback that's economical, comfy, and affordable, the Alto is still a tough sell. The Maruti Suzuki Alto is a great entry-level hatchback for someone on a tight budget looking for a fuel-efficient yet powerful vehicle. The CNG model is a fantastic solution for those looking for extremely low operating expenses.

The Tata Nano is a great entry-level car, offering great value for money. It is a little less powerful than the Maruti Alto 800, but provides good fuel economy and performance. The Maruti Alto 800 offers more power, however, and is a great choice for first-time car buyers. The Nano is more affordable, making it a great option for those on a budget.

Best Car for the Beginners

Sonu arora | 5 years ago

I am writing this review on the behalf of 3 years I spent with Maruti Alto. I used to ride Maruti Alto in my college days as of now I am riding Ecosport. But I own Alto 800 also. It's a fuel efficient car and best hatchback for the beginners. Its pickup is great and I never felt pain in my arms due to its Power steering on long tours. I never faced parking problem because of its size and it just pass the traffic so smoothly. It delivered me 18 kmpl average on city roads and on highways I got 20-21 kmpl efficiency. From inside, I can say it is okay like other hatchback of this price bracket. The seats are thin so you cannot expect comfort from it. The boot space is also fine in which you can carry around 3 bags and a big suitcase. Yes, the bumper quality is bad of Alto. It breaks very often by hitting small things.

1.alto 800 me problem hai jaise ki agar a.c on kiya to top speed 60 uske baad fir speed or badhate hai to awaj badh jati hai or chalane me maza nai aata or a.c 2 number pe chalate hi iski aukaat pata chal jati hai,
2. agar 4 seat se zyada jaise 5 log agar baithte h to bhi problem hai 4 logo k liye jagah theek hai.
3. zyada nichi hone ki wajah se baithne me problem hoti hai agar koi lamba admi agar drive karta hai to uske pairo me dard hone lagega or agar seat zyada peche le jate hai to piche baithne wale ke pairo me dard hone lagega.

I don't think its price will be so high.. becoz then no one will go with this. There is other option i.e Alto k10 having 1000 CC engine.
Its ideal price should be 2 lac to 2.5 lac..

maruti had recently lowered down the offer schemesfrom April,which wiil definitely lower down the demand of new car as the market is slow at present. maruti should announce much more attractive offers to increase the sale of new cars. I MYSELF HAS DROPPED THE IDEA OF BUYING NEW CAR as there are no attractive offer to attract me to buy new car.
