My 2 cents.

I always believe that buy only what you want and like. If one really likes Alto then it is a great deal else there is no point in buying something just because it is being on display and sold cheap.

May be this is (buying something bcs its in display) true for normal house hold goods and not a car

If people are interested in this car and looking to buy one, then this may help to speed up the purchase, if this is a real discount.

Default Check thorughly the cars on discount

Please check if the discount is real , or you might lend with a new car and and old parts.Touch the car, as retouched paint feels rough .Look at the engine as the aluminium corrosion occurs when car is used with the acid battery that comes cheap.

From the price it seems that you have booked a Alto Lxi. If it is so then, its a great deal.

You already got a 22k discount from the dealer, then there are whole lot of accessories which add up the worth. This is a great deal as far as what I could see.

And moreover its a great car and I dont think A star will be pitted right up against Alto. There would be a price gap.

A great car.

The ALTO is the same car that AUTOCAR used in their 24 hour speed run. They ran it at full speed and non-stop for 24 hours. That speaks volumes about the car. Its an awesome piece of equipment. Good choice.

(If I were you, I would immediately sell the car off in the second hand market and pocket some free money!!! Awesoem deal)

no this is not a stock clearance sale... d dealer told me that they have stopped stocking their vehicles for the end of season sale, instead they have started giving the best deal to their customers as far as they can round the season
i hope A star will not affect the sale of Alto.. its a different segment car..

Now that the A-star is launched slightly over-priced, it makes more sense to discuss whether Alto is really a good buy.

I am considering a second car for the family for a pretty long time. Waited for A-star but that car is clearly out of my budget now. Or I will have to strain my finances to go for A-star, which I don't think is worth it. Or is it?

Alto is definitely a great buy at the price and VFM it offers.

A star is now way out of league

The Alto is a great VFM buy and is brilliant to use in the city and has acceptable performance on the highway. The tried and tested 3 cylinder engine is highly fuel efficient too. No wonder that it outsells the M 800.

Cheers,
