Maruti Suzuki has set yet another record by selling 20 lakh units of the Alto. The Alto also holds the record for the fastest to clock 10 lakh-unit sales within eight years and three months of its launch, a record it has broken now by the Alto itself by clocking the next 10 lakh units within a mere three years and six months. The Alto is also the only car in India to cross the 3,00,000-unit sales mark in 2010-11 and it repeated this feat in 2011-12 again. The Alto first rolled-out on the Indian streets in the year 2000.
On this occasion, Mayank Pareek, COO, (Marketing and Sales) said, “The Alto’s superior fuel efficiency, compact sleek design, good manoeuvrability and overall low cost of ownership are the attributes that make it the best car for first time buyers. The Alto as a complete package continues to win customer’s hearts and surprise everyone with its performance.”
The Maruti Alto is available with a 796cc or a 1.0-litre K-series petrol engine.
