the picture on the website shows a cylinder in the boot,so there is no laguage space available.

nope, the cylinder though looks much like the regular 45Liter Lovato tank that EATS out the dickie, this one from Maruti is a 20 Liter, occupies only half the space, though one CANNOT store suitcases and stuff, a few flexi soft luggage airbags are very much possible. Also, a 800 looks nice with the roof luggage tray IMO

@ 2.3 Xshwm works to around 2.6 OTR with AC, WOW, thats a price to die for... am sure the NEW XETA will have its work cut out.

I read somewhere that the sales would be likely to increase by 22-25%. A good move and should make a car more affordable to run atleast.

Since M800 sales decreasing its good move by MUL. Its perfect City car who need economy! One should use M800 for more city/town rather than highway crusing in speeds like 80-90kmph.

Ravi.

indeed it is a good move by maruti,but i am not sure whether 800 will be able cope up W.R.T sales.
yes there will be increase but still ni feel that 800 is an outdated model,maybe LPG version of alto would have been more succesful.

it would have been better if 800 goes out of the market and is replaced by alto,why cant they make alto as cheap as 800?

and a an lpg version of that would have been good, i mean as far as the body of 800 is concerned its sooooo dated its high time they give us something that looks nice and is as cheap

outdated but still sells.

I think they should have used the toroidal tank for the 800. may be cost cutting prevented them.

@ram, is it possible to just change the lpg tank in the 800 with a lpg tank of the wagonR duo???

for the future:
they might bring a revised model of 800 when the Nano is launched slightly at a higher price than the Nano. And may be then the alto might be offered at a price slightly more than the price of the current 800.

Saw this ad a couple of days ago & was expecting this thread. Good initiative by Maruti. Will certainly help a lot of people save on their fuel bills with stupid speculation games increasing the prices everyday.

That was good move by Maruti-Suzuki, but i think they should focus on hybrid cars too..

I have a strong feeling that this would happen and thus have been postponing my M800 purchase for sometime now. Don't want to end up in a situation where I buy an M800 today paying 2.3L and then in a few months when the Nano is released, they cut prices drastically.

So Tata, bring out the Nano fast.

@girish - hopefully that was a typo. It should 25 years. I believe the first 800 rolled out in 1983.
