2017 Maruti Alto Utsav special edition is here. This is the new edition limited only for the festive season. We did notice some hoardings on the road and even collected how Alto sales have dropped in the last two years. Due to this drop, Maruti will not want the sales of its bread-and-butter car to be affected. Hence this new edition has been launched. It has even got the iCreate edition for the Swift to keep the stock rolling and not affect the numbers until the new one is launched.
2017 Maruti Alto Utsav Changes
At the moment, the Alto is offered with this limited edition variant. What are the changes on it? Not too many, as the changes are very much limited. The MSIL brand is offering Alto 800 Utsav Special with cosmetic enhancements only. So, it does get minor add-ons. There is an all new chrome surround on the tail lamp, red and yellow coloured stickers on the side. The front fog lamp also gets more additional chrome inserts.
As you move inside, there are new seat covers and even reverse parking sensors too. All this is offered only on the VXi variant only. No other variant is offering this limited edition.
2017 Maruti Alto Utsav Price
The jump in pricing is by Rs 20,000 over the existing VXi variant. This will be offered just on this variant only and no other versions will be able to get this.
2017 Maruti Alto Utsav Engine and Transmission
The same 796cc engine will be powering the Alto Utsav. This will churn about 49bhp of power and close to 60Nm of maximum torque. Maruti isn’t offering the Alto Utsav on the K10 engine. So, there shall only be the 5-speed manual transmission on offer.
The festive season witnesses a flurry of special edition launches by manufacturers in a bid to cash in on the increased demand. Staying true to that tradition, MSIL has launched the Maruti Alto 800 Utsav special edition with cosmetic enhancements. There is no other change, be it the engine, specifications, suspension, power or even space.
2017 Maruti Alto Utsav Worth a Buy?
Not exactly. If you need an Alto VXi, you can pick it and add the aftermarket features. You might get more of them at a lower price as the only really addition is the reverse sensor. There are stronger products available in the market than the Alto and that is the redi-GO and the Kwid. See our detailed comparison debate on which will be a better choice for you.
