Maruti has launched the Alto 800 facelift at a price of Rs. 2.49 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). The front fascia of the car now gets a revised bumper, headlights and grille. The Suzuki logo has been shifted towards the top of the front bumper. The side profile bears no changes whatsoever though while the rear is also pretty much the same.

The length of the car has been increased by 35 mm and it is now offered in two new colours – Mojito Green and Cerulean Blue. The interiors now come with a dark grey colour scheme. The rear seat has been tweaked for more comfort and comes with integrated headrests too.

The Maruti Alto 800 facelift comes with the same 800cc petrol engine. However, this engine has been tuned to generate 9% more fuel efficiency. Thus the petrol variants have a claimed mileage figure of 24.7 km/l while the CNG trims churn out 33.44 km/kg of gas. The Alto now comes with remote keyless entry and rear door child locks on the top variants.

Maruti has upped the safety features on the car. The Alto now comes with an optional driver-side airbag on all trims while the car also comes with a passenger side ORVM as standard now. The vehicle also gets new rear bottle holders. Seems, Maruti is all set to tackle the upcoming Datsun redi-GO with the Alto facelift.
