Maruti Alto has functional interior. The speedometer is large and easy
to read but there is no tachometer. Odometer and tripmeter are on the
same digital LCD display so you have to switch between them by using a
button. Dashboard cabinet has enough space to store bare essentials. The
boot space can accommodate enough luggage. The AC of Maruti Alto is
effective, but it uses most of the power of this tiny car.
A long drive in Alto is always a pleasure. Fabric seat upholstery makes
sitting during long journeys comfortable. One can calculate the distance
travelled with electronic trip meter. A cabin lamp lits interiors of the
