CG Automobiles, the sole authorised distributor of Maruti Suzuki in Nepal, has launched the Alto 800 in the market. The hatchback is claimed to be one of the best economy four-wheelers in the segment.

According to the company, the upgraded edition of the Alto is now available in three variants — Alto 800 (standard), Alto 800 LX (Alto AC) and Alto 800 LXI. The new products from CG offer a mileage of 22.74 kpl, a 15 percent improvement in fuel efficiency over the previous model.

CG’s executive director Karan Chaudhary said they launched the product to cater to demand for trendy and cost-effective four-wheelers. “The new economy car is the best suited for valley roads,” he added.

According to CG, the Alto 800 is an entry level car in the A2 segment that features new dynamics apart from being cost-effective. Siraj Pant, deputy general manager, marketing, sales and strategy at CG Automobiles, said there was growing demand for mini and compact cars with the changing lifestyles of the people.

The new car features a unique wavefront design with elegant and smooth long curves. Similarly, it comes with prominent wheel arches that add volume to the side stance. The spacious interiors of the car feature head room, shoulder room and utility space. The five-seater auto has a fuel tank with a capacity of 35 l. Similarly, the scooped out back of the front seat in the car and the enhanced rear leg room is an improvement, according to CG.

The Alto is equipped with a refined engine that delivers a torque of 69 Nm at 3,500 rpm, an improvement of 6 Nm over the previous model. The engine has a power output of 48 PS at 6,000 rpm which is 12 PS more than the normal Maruti 800. “This ensures better pick-up,” said Chaudhary. The wheelbase of the car is 2,360 mm and it has a ground clearance of 160 mm.

With regard to safety features, the car comes with optional driver side air-bags and uses high-strength steel that ensures more safety for the passengers.

Meanwhile, the car comes in six colours — frost blue, granite grey, superior white, blazing red, silky silver and torque blue. As for the interior, customers can choose from brown and grey.

The company aims to sell 110 units within one month of its launching. “We are hopeful of selling 600 cars by the end of this fiscal year,” said Chaudhary. According to him, customers are offered financing facilities from financial institutions like NIC, Bank of Asia, Standard Chartered Bank and Sanima Bank. Buyers have to make a down payment of 20 percent. Bank financing carries an annual interest of 10 percent.

CG offers a three-year free service and a one-year warranty on the car. The Alto standard costs Rs 1.34 million while the Alto AC and the Alto LXI are available for Rs 1.49 million and Rs 1.62 million respectively.
