Maruti Suzuki 800 OverviewIf we had to name a four wheeler car which is very popular on Indian streets since decades, it’s none other than else Maruti 800. The amazing small car can still be seen plying on the Indian roads, though recently company announced to defunct its production. The car was launched in the year 1983 and had Indian connection for more than three decades. It was the best selling model in the domestic market until 2004. The ‘People’s Car’ is still being sold in the Indian market as many dealerships in the country are seen clearing their stock. Maruti 800 still holds the tag of the most economical car of all time in the Indian market. Despite of its being phasing out, it is associated with abundance of trust and confidence with the small car lovers. After the end of Maruti 800, in order to continue the legacy, the company launched a model called Maruti Alto 800, which is said to have a mix of both, M800 and Maruti Alto.
Maruti Suzuki 800 ExteriorMaruti 800 has been upgraded several times during its massive tenure in the Indian market. The latest model comes with compact figure and modern styling that gives it classic and unique look on the road. The design is actually simple with minimalistic approach. The front does not offer anything fancy, but appears unswerving. It consists of headlamp cluster and typical 800 grille section which is rigid in nature.
The side profile is rudimentary with minor detailing on doors and handles. Overall the design doesn’t fascinates the younger generation but yet lovable by a large chunk of people. Moreover, the plus point of its compact dimensions helps it to take a stand in the parking lot.
Maruti Suzuki 800 InteriorThe Maruti 800 is equipped with acceptable interior features which have always tried its best to provide comfort to the occupants. The best thing that impresses about this car is the rear back seats that contain head rests giving relaxation for longer routes. The seating arrangement lacks the punch in comparison to modern small cars in the market but offers enough head room, shoulder room and leg room for the occupants.
The dashboard at the front though lacks contemporary taste but is functional and durable at the same time. It can hold music system and has inbuilt rack for storage. The dashboard is toned in blackish grey color. Front passengers have slim door pockets on their side which can hold couple of magazine. The air conditioner is simple with minimal controls that can even be operated by a layman.
Maruti Suzuki 800 Engine & TransmissionThe simple machinery does have a decent powertrain under the hood. It gets power from a 796cc 3-cylinder engine which is an SOHC (Single Over Head Camshaft) based engine. The engine is based on MPFI (Multi Point Fuel Injection) technology capable of producing 37 bhp at the rate of 5000 rpm and an adequate torque rate of 59 Nm at the rate of 2500 rpm.
The engine is coupled with 4-speed manual transmission system which helps it to get on to the top speed of 144 kmph.

As the engine is quite old now, it lacks in mileage department which could be troublesome for mileage quotient people especially in India, where people before buying a car research thoroughly about the efficiency and mileage.
Maruti Suzuki 800 Braking and SafetyMaruti 800 does have modern braking and suspension system allowing it to stand alive in the fierce competition of today. It is offered with McPherson strut at the front axle along with coil spring while the rear axle features a coil spring with gas filled shock absorbers. On similar level, the front wheel consists of disc brakes while the rear is fitted with drum brakes which are enough for the compact car to halt at a user defined point.
Over the years Maruti Suzuki has certainly reached new level in safety and security but newer standards that demands ABS and airbags are not there in the car. But yet it is loaded with intelligent computerized theft control system, side impact beams can survive average collision impacts. Also the seat belts are included as an obligatory safety precaution.
