2019 Maruti Alto 800 BS6 is launched earlier with a revised engine and added safety features
Maruti Suzuki India Limited today introduced the New Alto, which has been India’s best-selling car for 15 consecutive years. Maruti Suzuki drives in the New Alto with enhanced safety features and captivating design. The New Alto now comes with BSVI compliant engine, nearly a year before the regulation being mandated.
The customers of New Alto will witness a change in price predominantly due to factors such as additional safety features, new technology and design and compliance to BSVI regulation. With these changes, the New Alto becomes the first entry level segment car to be compliant with the contemporary safety and environment regulations.
NEW LOOK OF PRIDE: The new grille and sharp headlamps bring a fresh appeal to the New Alto, while the newly designed bumper and side fender accentuate the looks. A look inside the car showcases stylish dual tone interiors and seats. A new dashboard design flows effortlessly to the new AC ducts, right to the stylish yet functional speedometers. Ergonomically designed front and rear bottle holders give it an air of practicality.
The New Alto comes with a new infotainment system called Smart Play Dock. Customers can enjoy music on the Smart Play Dock with Bluetooth. The Smart Play Dock in the New Alto transforms customer’s phone into a touch interface to access calls, music, navigation and more. Customer can also experience the convenience of keyless entry.
NEW SAFETY FEATURES: The New Alto now comes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution System (EBD). ABS will help to avoid skidding by electronically controlling braking pressure. It will also help to maintain steering control when braking on slippery surfaces or when braking hard. The ABS works automatically, whenever it senses that the wheels are locking up. Other standard safety features in the New Alto include Reverse Parking Sensor, Driver Airbag, Speed Alert System and Seat Belt Reminder for both driver and co-driver. New Alto also complies with upcoming crash and pedestrian safety regulation.
BS-VI ENGINE: Maruti Suzuki has consistently introduced technology upgrades in the Alto for meeting customer aspirations. The BS-VI compliant engine will mean a substantial reduction, (nearly 25%) of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), in vehicular emission. To achieve this stringent emission regulation requirement, Maruti Suzuki has upgraded engine hardware and software with technological advancement of exhaust system. The stringent emission requirement is ensured with extensive and rigorous field tests in actual Indian driving conditions. Meeting the End of Life Vehicles (ELV) obligations, the New Alto is over 95% recoverable and 85% recyclable.
