Maruti Alto 800 Engine

The Alto 800 comes with a 796cc petrol engine pumps out 47bhp of power. This engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. This car isn’t the most powerful on paper but in real world it is a lot more easier to drive. The Alto 800 has a CNG option as well. The Alto 800 might even get an AMT option as Maruti has tested one already but there is no confirmation on the same. This engine has been for more than 30 years now. However, it has been getting timely updates for improving its performance and even emission. The Maruti Alto 800 Price is good enough for a vehicle size, with the AMT the percentage increase in Maruti Alto 800 price will not justify the cost.
