The design changes on the facelift are mainly on the face. A black applique has been added on the top grille, connecting the headlamps. The bumper has been redesigned with a provision for fog lamps or DRLs. Overall, the new face looks smarter compared to the outgoing model. The LXi and VXi trims get full wheel covers for the 12-inch wheels.
Standard dual-tone interiors
The interiors have been refreshed too with a new dashboard that houses an audio system. Depending on the trim, other features include AC with heater, front power windows, power steering, remote fuel lid opener, remote back door opener, internally adjustable ORVMs, and fabric+vinyl upholstery. As before, the standard variant doesn’t even get an AC.
The top-end VXi gets an audio system with USB, Aux-in, Radio, and Bluetooth connectivity. The variant gets two front speakers.
As before, the Alto 800 doesn’t get a tachometer. However, there’s a digital clock
Powering the new Alto 800 is a BS-VI complaint 796 cc 3-cylinder petrol engine that produces 35.3 kW (48 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 69 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.
The new Alto offers driver airbag, ABS with EBD, driver & co-driver seat belt reminder, reverse parking sensors, and speed alert system as standard across all variants. The top-end VXi trim gets passenger airbag too, which is offered as an option on lower variants.
With cumulative sales of over 3.7 million since launch in 2000, Alto has been a symbol of pride for Indian car users. Nearly 58% of Alto customers have chosen it as their first car purchase. The New Alto is India’s first BSVI compliant entry segment car with a powerful engine and high fuel efficiency of 22.05 km/l. We are confident that the New Alto will be a car that young Indians will be proud to own. – R S Kalsi, Senior Executive Director (Marketing & Sales), MSIL
Meeting the End of Life Vehicles (ELV) obligations, the new Alto is over 95% recoverable and 85% recyclable, the company said.
