Maruti Suzuki New Alto 800 Engine

Maruti Suzuki does not believe in doing anything by half measures, the New Alto 800 engine is a prime example of this philosophy. The New Alto 800 is engine is far more evolved Vs. the old Alto, even though Maruti is still referring to it as F8D.

The upgrades in the small 796 cc engine has been done to get more out-of an already successful engine and Maruti Engineers seems to have done a wonderful job on it. Starting with Aluminium Engine, which helped Maruti reduce Alto 800’s  Kerb weight (ranging from 695 Kgs to 720 Kgs), this in turn would ensure optimal engine performance with decent mileage figures and driveability.

Other measures taken to make the 796 cc engine under New Alto 800 hood effective and a great performer are:

Induction System with Longer and Angled Plastic Intake Manifold Tube

Higher Compression ratio as compared to outgoing Alto

Lightened Short Skirt Piston

Low Tension Piston Ring

Micro-Groove and Low Width Bearing with Reduced Friction

Lighter Connecting Rod and Crankshaft

Not only, has these modifications in the Alto 800 engine helped the New Alto 800 deliver a higher fuel efficiency of 22.74 Kmpl, but these changes have also helped in delivering higher power and torque figures. Power in the New Alto 800 has gone up to 49 Ps @ 6200 Rpm Vs 47 Ps / 6200 Rpm in old Alto, torque on the other has gone up by 11% to 69 Ps @ 3500 Rpm in the New Alto Vs Old Alto.

We believe, that most first car buyers who have been waiting for the New Alto will be thrilled with the engine of the New Alto 800 in terms of its driveability and with fewer visit to the petrol stations (thanks to its class leading mileage)  as an added bonus from the New Alto 800.

Recent booking figures shared or floating in the market of 6500 since booking announcement just 5 days back is a clear indication of car buyers in India having given a thumbs-up to the New Alto 800.

Fortuner Vs Endeavour full blown SUV Competing for Buyers Wallet. Real SUV for SUV lovers from Toyota and Ford. Endeavour and Fortuner comes in 4*2 and 4*4 drive train. Fortunately both have the muscle, looks and power under their hoods to take any terrain with ease. Whilst, on paper feature to feature and engine comparison seems to be tilting the balance in favour of the Endeavour, however, Toyota has enough fan following who will willingly ignore any marquee for a Toyota at any price. Lucky Toyota.
