Maruti was the pioneer of small hatchback family cars in India and the developing markets, and Alto 800 was a landmark in this sector, creating a history in itself! The LX variant being the lowest, yet takes pride in the best of features that this car offers, like the best of mileage. The fuel economy here is 22.74 kmpl, which is the best in this car category. Besides, it comes with 5 gears, has space for 5 persons, and with 796 c.c. Capacity, is offering some of the most amazing features that no other car in this segment has to offer! This is what makes it so very special along with the low cost, which makes it extremely affordable!
The LX variant is available in six attractive and varied colors. It comes with conventional headlights that have height adjusters. This helps in near as well as far away visions at night. The clear lenses provided with front headlights as well as rear tail lamps add to the night vision even better. The fog lamps, if necessary, can be attached separately. The body is made out of light weight alloy which is not just resistant to external shock but also keeps the car light, thus enhancing the fuel efficiency of the car.
The seat covers come in a large variety of prints, textures and colors. They are not only comfortable but also functionally great, being resistant to pilling, creasing and fire. Besides, the head rests provided in front as well as rear adds to the comfort of the passengers. The front seat pockets add to the soft space of the car, while the boot lid opener is internal. The ORVM’s are provided on the driver’s side and they are externally adjustable. The seat belts are provided on the two front seats for safety as well as adding to the interior features.
The LX variant of Maruti Alto 800 comes with AC built in which is manually controlled. It also has the heater along with it. The comfort features are great due to the fact that in the latest model, a lot of leg space has been provided. Amazingly, although this car is considered one of the lowest in terms of height, the seating arrangements are such that the head space available inside is great enough. In fact, the height of the car suits the Indian stature very much, and this car is especially preferred by the ladies.
The Maruti Alto 800 LX is the lowest variant available in the model, and hence, the safety features that come with it are also very basic. But since it is a car targeted for the developing country roads and the middle income family group, having certain safety features in it matters. Thus, it possesses the engine immobilizer and a child safety lock in built. It however is devoid of the central locking system that can be later upgraded on the wish of the user. The alloy wheels and tubeless tyres add to the durability of its parts and its safety for a longer duration.
