Maruti has been secretly working on the 800’s replacement and these exclusive spy pics show what the new Maruti 800 will look like. Like the current 800, this all-new car will slot in below the Alto and is in fact based on the existing Alto platform. The 800 will be powered by the same 796cc three-cylinder motor (F8D) from the Alto which has been modified to meet the latest emission norms. The new 800 is expected to have all-new interiors and will be a little bit more spacious than before.
Maruti is targeting a sub-Rs 2-lakh price for the new Maruti 800 to distance it from the Alto by at least Rs 40,000 and put it smack into Nano territory.
