Practical to the core, Maruti Suzuki Alto LXi - BS III cuts down on frippery.
Maruti Suzuki Alto LXi - BS III is a small car that uses power steering. It is quite responsive, but also feels spongy sometimes. However, it adds to the comfort of the one who drives this car. The ride is comfortable and pleasant, but handling creates bit of a trouble. The five-speed manual gears help easy transmission, but the suspension is stiff. The interesting thing is that the brakes are highly responsive. The stiff chassis of Maruti Suzuki Alto LXi - BS III gives it an individual driving character. The top speed of 138 kmph reached by this car is good enough for a small segment car. Also, the fuel consumption is reduced with a good mileage of 14 kmpl on highways. Thus, this car is really good for those looking for economy and fuel efficiency. With ground clearance of 166 mm, Maruti Suzuki Alto LXi - BS III can easily run over uneven surfaces without scratching the underside of the car. Also, the fuel tank capacity of 36 liters is fine for city driving, where you can find fuel stations on your way.
Maruti Suzuki Alto LXi - BS III is a hatchback that belongs to the B segment of cars. It easily accommodates five people at a time. The exterior resembles Wagon R and Maruti 800, but has done some modifications on 800's design. It looks good because of the inclusion of body colored bumpers. The grille design adds to the bold looks. Speaking of the interiors, the car holds simple dashboard, and stereo. The air conditioner controls have a new rotary type design and sliding type design like the one seen on non-AC type models. The seat fabric is good and the color combination too is fine.
Maruti Suzuki Alto LXi - BS III does not have very comfortable interiors. Although, this hatchback has responsive brakes, it does not include any safety features like ABS, EBD, not even airbags.
