Powering the latest iteration of the Maruti Alto 800 is an updated version of the tried-and-tested 796cc, three-cylinder petrol engine that traces its roots to the days of the original Maruti 800. The motor produces a maximum power of 48 hp and a peak torque of 69 Nm. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The entry-level small car has an ARAI-rated fuel mileage of 22.05 kmpl.
The BS6-compliant engine has 25 per cent lesser Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emissions than the BS4 version. The improvement has been achieved through usage of upgraded hardware and software, along with a new exhaust system. Also, the latest Alto 800 is 85 per cent recyclable and 95 per cent recoverable, which helps it comply with End of Life Vehicles (ELV) obligations.
