The Alto isn’t a great handler either. The steering lacks crispness and the EPS on the LXi has a detached feel. Body control is reasonable — but for the lack of power, the Alto is reasonably adept. And it’s well suited to city traffic too. Long springs and high profile tyres also help it ride well and the little car absorbs a whole lot of undulations the road can throw up. The Alto brakes do a fair job too.
