The switches for the power windows are onthe center console which takes a bit of getting used to, though. Having said that, visibility is good and the new dashboard is nothing short of functional. The air-conditioningvents on either sides of the dashboard close in case the centre console vents need more air flow.

Plastic quality on the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 could be better.

Exteriors

3/4 view of the Maruti Alto 800

The exterior of the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 is noticeably high and stands at 1475mm. The length has also been kept under 4 metres at 3395mm to ensure tax benefits. However, the 1490mm of width would mean seating for three adults in the rear seat of the Maruti Suzuki Alto would be a tight fit.The large headlamps upfront and the wide lower grille add a contemporary look to the overall design silhouette.

What we like
Design silhouette is modern and upmarket. However, it may be a little loud for some.
What we don't like
The exterior of the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 could be too loud for some prospects.
