Isnt Alto over priced? I felt it smaller than a Nano and also the quality of parts used.

Sir, isn't the A-Star priced higher too?

at least this is what i felt after seeing the Chevrolet Beat/Ritz/Figo petrol
sorry for OT--

now back to T--
if some mod can be done to the present engine, they might do it and if not, i think they may price the A-Star in 3L range(topping at 3.75) and axe the Alto

Alto is coming with reworked F8D to meet BS4 as per my dealer and its RTO approval is already gonna be done soon.

They're not going to pull out Alto and re-price A Star. When the 800 is axed Alto will be their entry-level 800cc car, A-Star their mid-level 1 liter hatch and Swift their premium 1.2 liter hatch.

For those who need tall boys they have Estilo 1 liter, New WagonR 1 liter and Ritz 1.2 liter.

If they axe the Alto and re-price A-Star it will not work for them. A-Star is a wee bit more cramped than Alto. For families they need to have Alto in their range.
