The Maruti Alto became only the second Maruti ever to reach the 2 million mark this month. It's been 11 years and 9 months since Maruti launched the car in India. It was the fastest to sell 10 lakh units in the domestic market. Within 8 years and 3 months. The next ten lakh units came much faster within three years and 6 months.

The Alto has been Maruti Suzuki's as well as India's largest selling car for a while now. Only this month, it was toppled by Maruti's very own Swift which sold marginally higher than the Alto.
On the occasion, Mr. Mayank Pareek, Chief Operating Officer, (Marketing and Sales), said,
“Alto’s superior fuel efficiency, compact sleek design, good manoeuvrability and overall low cost of ownership are the attributes that make it the best car for the first time buyers. Alto as a complete package continues to win customer’s hearts and surprise everyone with its performance.”
Encouraged by the demand for the Alto, Maruti Suzuki launched a powerful K-Series engine in an Alto K-10 avatar in August 2010. At the same, they also introduced a CNG variant of the Alto.

+1 to Visran.
Alto is , IMHO, the most practical and affordable hatchback with very less competitors because of the price bracket it comes within.
Anyways, Congrats to Maruti suzuki and Alto.[:D]

If the rumour's of Maruti working on 3 cylinder diesel engine for Alto is true then it wont be long for Alto to overtake Corolla as the world's largest selling car.

Alto is a very practical car and fuel efficient as well. And on top of that it's a Maruti, no spare parts problem, A.S.S is good, very low maintenance required and the price is perfect as well. And if you get stuck on the road anywhere in India you will definitely find someone who can fix it. Whether it's a big workshop or a small on just on the corner of the road.

Fits 5 people easily, very practical for city driving and have boot space as well. People with low income can also afford a car. So no wonder why Alto crosses that sales figure.

Kudos to MARUTI[thumbsup]

One of the most junkiest car ever made. Hopeless space. Even M800 has better space than alto. Does MSIL feels we are pygmies ? [frustration] Even cheaper Nano has better space than alto.

Its simple, there are no real competitors to take on Alto, (not even the Eon), no competition for the price and an apt upgrade from 800.

Sorry,i beg to disagree here, we have traveled both in 800 and Alto (long distance) Alto was better than 800.
