- Cons: No Power Steering in base and Lx varient
The changes to the monocoque and the addition of gas dampers have made the car dynamically better thing. It rides a little bit better and is less bumpy ride . But it steers and handles tighter and is less prone to under steer than before. It's only the tyres that are the weak-link in the package. They aren't as grippe as you would want them to be and shifting to 13-inchers should improve matters a bit. The steering has very good weight and the vehicle turns in beautifully thanks to the revised stiffness and weight distribution.There are lot of improvements and takeaways from the new Alto 800 lxi, most of which are incremental rather than substantial thing. And yet it's a perceptibly even better car that has ironed out most, if not all the shortcomings of its predecessor. When it goes on sale on October 15th, be rest assured that this winner for Maruti Suzuki will just entrench itself even more firmly.
