Maruti all geared to launch new 800


     In spite of having problems at it Manesar plant Maruti Suzuki is leaving no stones unturned to launch its bread and butter car ‘800’ in a new avatar. The car, as you see picture might have already reached some dealers which means the launch is going to be very soon. Earlier, the New Maruti 800 was slated for a Diwali launch this year.  


     As seen from the picture, we feel Maruti has tried to copy not one but many cars. The rear tail lamps and side profile reminds us of the Hyundai i20. In the front, the headlamps looks to be copied from Figo and looking closer don’t you think the grill/airdam has been lifted from Renault Pulse/Scala? You can see side cresses going from front to back and wheel arch bulges look prominent. Whatever, Maruti Suzuki has tried to bring in a better designed car than the earlier 800 at an affordable cost. Though we think Maruti could have done a better job.
  
     The interior is likely to be lifted from Alto, which means almost similar dashboard and headrest integrated seats. The new Maruti 800 will replace the Alto LXi where as the Alto K10 continues to be sold. The same 796cc 3 Cylinder engine of Alto which has been modified to meet the emission norms will power the new 800. Maruti is likely to price the new 800 below Rs. 2 lakh to compete with Tata Nano.
