Maruti India is overjoyed as one of their top selling small cars since more than a decade has achieved a marvelous feat. The adorable small car, Maruti Alto has crossed 20 lakh vehicle sales recently and this stupendous accomplishment was done in close to eleven years and nine months. Maruti Cars are renowned to be steadfast and consistent and Maruti Alto is a fine example of that. The company feels that the superb success of this car is attributed to superior fuel efficiency combined with a compact and sleek design along with being pocket friendly in terms of servicing, spare parts and other repairs. Maruti Alto is said to be the most popular car for the first time buyers as it is easy to maneuver, affordably priced, less on maintenance and has a compact design. The best year for this small car was 2010-11, when Maruti Alto sold a whopping 3 lakh vehicles, which is also a milestone in itself. This small car was launched in year, 2000 and was the fastest to cross the 10 lakh vehicle sales from the reputed stable of Maruti India.

The Maruti Alto Features are a tad lesser owing to the impressive pricing, but this car still has a power steering, dual tone dashboard, digital fuel indicator, manual air conditioning system and several other such remarkable features. The engine is a peppy 796cc with MPFI that is coupled with a 5-Speed manual transmission gear box and this wonderful car can generate a remarkable mileage between 14 to 18.9 kmpl with the petrol engine and the CNG variant gives between 15 to 20 kmpl.
