It's great to own an Alto LXi especially in a town like Hyderabad. I previously owned a Maruti 800, which I gave up to own the Alto. I traverse back and forth in the Alto, and I find it very trustworthy and fuel efficient indeed. I obtained a fuel economy of around 17 kmpl after the first service. Honestly, I keep the air-conditioning on in around three instances out of ten. My friends say it's got the coolest looks, but I know it's the power steering and solid brakes that help me go across 35 to 40 kilometres every day. I always use Speed and not the normal fuel, and always maintain standard tyre pressure. It's always best to drive in the economy zone of 40-60 kmph to get the best fuel economy. The air-conditioning has a tendency to drag down the fuel economy, but at speeds at 50 kmpl and above, this is not usually a problem. The Alto can comfortably accommodate up to four people, but a hefty guy in the front may need to be a bit acrobatic while manoeuvring to get comfortably seated in the car. I could get five in once, but accelerating this compact vehicle to an appreciable speed was a bit tough as the car revved up and struggled for torque. Anyways, that's the best I could expect from the Alto's little engine. All in all, it's a great car for a compact family.
