The exterior of the car is just stunning, as it’s exhibited in Maruti Alto 800 pictures. The car sports some design cues from the previous model along with aging lines have now make way for much more modern curves. The new variant is 100mm smaller than the existing one but the wheelbase is same which will not let you feel about the reduced length. Alongside, the height and width of the car is increased to provide more shoulder and head room. The leg room is also increased with adjustable seats. New headlamps and tail lamps are installed into the vehicle along with new bumper and grill design. The plain Jane looks of the previous model is now replaced with character lines and creases. Overall, it’s a nice looking car standing on 12 inch tubeless tyres and having 4.6 meter of turning radius.

On the other hand, the interiors of the car are also improved to a significant level. The car has pretty much basic design with the colored and materials look better. The silver accents provided to the interiors give it more elegant look. The central console is adorned with a cup holder while the window switches are also moved to the central console. These are some of the features most cherished by the customers, as per a Maruti Alto 800 review. The company has invested around 500 crores to develop this car and it took 4 long years and efforts of 2000 engineers to get developed. The efforts can be easily browsed in the vehicle.

On the other hand, the CNG variant of the car will cost additional 75,000. I shared that Maruti Suzuki cars goes expensive.

Maruti Suzuki cars goes expensive


India’s well – known car manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki India has finally decided to increase the Maruti car prices of its new variants by Rs. 5250. This decision was taken in order to prevent the sudden changes due to fluctuations in excise duty & also the increase of input costs. This was what stated by one of the Maruti Suzuki’s spokesperson in the last month newsflash this year that the company is certain with the decision of raising the prices of Maruti Cars which would vary between Rs 2500 and Rs 5250 for controlling the company’s margin from getting pressurized by the varying foreign exchange and hike in input prices. One of our sources tells that an average increase in the price of Maruti Suzuki cars will be around 1 percent. MSI is looking forward to deal with the situation by targeting to reduce its foreign exchange revelation by near about 65 % to $ 600 million by March 2015.


Maruti Swift





Maruti Swift is a stylish looking hatchback; the car is supposed to be the best selling product in the market under the brand name of MSI. The initial beginning of hatchback models in India was done in year 2005 but the genuine success of the company’s objective was finally realized with the forcible launch of a notchback model other than the hatchback in order to sustain the same image in the trade of sedan models also. Maruti Swift’s sedan model, Swift Dzire was unveiled to the market in the year 2008 and as anticipated Maruti Suzuki was yet again successful in the marketplace.

In the month of August last year the freshly launched variant of Maruti Swift certainly has more aggressive appearance all because of its muscular presence as compared to the former model. The reason for this difference is that the new model sports front facing giant headlamps together with different sphere-shaped fog lamps giving the car a look of being a premium hatchback in the segment. The rear - side of Maruti Swift has tail lamps that are cornered & attached to a suitable rear - spoiler; on the other side the finish portion of the back - side is amazing too. The other features include ORVMs fixed indicators & body colored door handles; furthermore the side portions now appear more eye-catching with its new blend of alloy wheels each of 15 - inch. The interiors of the car are expansive comprising from instrument panel dashboard to stylishly designed ‘waterfall design’ center console along with grander ergonomics. I shared that New Maruti Alto 800 all set to hit showrooms on 16th October.

New Maruti Ritz: Refreshed and More Fuel Efficient


Maruti Suzuki has reveled a renovated version of Maruti Ritz Diesel, pampered with 52 modifications on the front fascia, various changes with the interiors, body side molding and the model delivers best in class fuel efficiency, which has been achieved with numerous initiatives by the engineers of Maruti Ritz. Designing a hatchback car is a bit challenging when it comes to styling it in a attractive way, its striking curves and prominent details define it with a rare body framing. All new refreshed look of new Maruti Ritz does not seems to be in proportion with the other body part. While looking up for the front fascia which seems to be quite broad & extended in regards to other cars into the segment, the look is exaggerated by pouting prominent grille merged with the chrome, that holds the Brand logo on its upper part. The front exterior is equipped with a set of fog lamps, which seems to be aspiring for a sporty look but that does not goes with the whole look. So the refreshed version of Maruti Ritz could be very well flaunted in 3 vibrant colors.








Its steeply held windscreen prominently arise back to give it a hatch back styling, and the details are highlighted with prominent fenders, raised bumpers, boomerang tail lamps. Apart from exteriors the dual tone contrasting interiors even does not seems to be inviting at all. All the do with red and black gives a cheap look on the central console, the red tinch on the multi information display on instrument panel and stereo system and digital IP even does not appeals, dual tone low quality fabric is used for upholstery and same is studded on the inner sides of gates which degrades the quality of interiors, which is generally not the Maruti's style. Though the interiors are lashed with all the safety & convenient features of Maruti Ritz such as electronically adjustable ORVM's, integrated vanity mirror in sun visor, clear courtesy lamps, audio control on the tilt steering wheel and many more. All new Zdi is introduced to with air bags, alloy wheels and audio control.








Though the appearance does not seems to be much appealing but then too it is expected to entice buyers with its unmatched performance and superb fuel efficiency with budget pricing for B+ segment. The car's pricing starts from Rs 5.31 lakh onwards. The car is powered by 1248cc DDiS engine generating a maximum power of 74bhp and torque of 190Nm at 2000rpm. This specific engine can accelerate upto the speed of 0-60kmph in just 5.9 seconds, delivering a fuel efficiency of 23.3kmph which is best in class. The mileage is enhanced from 21.1kmph(previous version) to 23.3kmph with 10% improvement in fuel efficiency which is achieved with the use of reduced fiction engine and calibration optimization.









As per the previous records the overwhelming acceptability could be well explained by marking up sale of more then 200,000 units in just 37 months, and this new version is developed to make Ritz brand much more vibrant and efficient, with all the new technologies intact within. Maruti Suzuki has unveiled the ZDi variant of the Ritz in India.
