Want something cheaper than the Dacia Sandero? Maruti Suzuki will sell you a brand new car for 244,000 rupees. That’s $4,613.
While Suzuki is on the ropes in North America, their fortunes in India have been traditionally strong. The Maruti Alto (Maruti being Suzuki’s Indian partner) was the best-selling car in India last year, continuing a 7 year reign. The Maruti 800 has sold millions of examples since its debut in 1983, and the upcoming Alto 800 that replaces it is an important model for the company.
