New Maruti 800 launch on the cards

For all those car enthusiasts who were disappointed with decision of Maruti India stopping the production of the most admired car Maruti 800, need not have to lose their heart. Ruling the hearts of millions of Indians for almost 28 years, there are rumours that Maruti India Limited is soon going to come up with the new incarnation of Maruti 800 again to capture the crown of supremacy in the hatchback segment of cars in Indian market. The rumours reveal that New Maruti 800 is designed on the pattern followed in production of Maruti Alto. However, the New Maruti 800 will be priced less than Rs.40,000/- as compared to Martu Alto.

Powered with the same powerful 796cc three cylinder engine as equipped in Maruti Alto, the New Maruti Alto is expected to be amended with latest technical features to meet the necessary current emission measures. It is also expected that the interiors of the New Maruti 800 will provide wide space to the passengers as compared to erstwhile model of Maruti 800. Coming towards the price of New Maruti 800 it is expected to be priced below 2 lakh rupees with an objective of giving tough competition to Tata Nano which at present is considered as an easily affordable car for every low salaried household. Besides Tata Nano, another car which is expected to give tough competition to New Maruti 800 in the same segment will be Hyundai H800 which is supposed to make its debut in Indian car market during November this year.

Hyundai H800 is considered as the substitute of Hyundai Santro Xing carrying the physical design similar to Hyundai i10. Hyundai H800 is expected to priced with price tag ranging between Rs. 2.32 lakhs to Rs. 3.30 lakhs.
With coming of New Maruti 800 back into the market it would be interested to see whether it succeeds to create the same magic of its erstwhile model or get over shadowed by the personality of other cars in its segment.
