Starting with the new BS6 engine, which is claimed to reduce about 25% Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) in emission. And to achieve this, the company has upgraded both the hardware and software of the exhaust system. The new engine, however, still has the same cubic capacity at 796 and it’s capable of churning out 47bhp and 69Nm
Starting with the exterior changes, the new 2019 Maruti Alto 800 gets a new face with a bigger grille. The new black grille now feels much better merged/connected into headlamp assembly. The car also gets a new bumper with a revised lower grille in honeycomb pattern, thus giving the front of the 2019 Alto a more prominent face. Strangely, the company has dropped the fog lamps from the entire Alto lineup. The side and rear profiles of the car see no changes, except for the ‘Alto’ badge instead of ‘Alto 800’. Just so you know, the Alto 800 still has 12-inch steel wheels. Also See – Maruti Baleno vs Tata Altroz

Keeping the new age buyers in mind, the 2019 Maruti Alto also gets a new infotainment system called Smart Play Dock.

Other standard features are reverse parking sensor, driver airbag, speed alert system and seat belt reminder which are part of the upcoming safety norms.
