Indian Currency System[edit]

In India the unit of money is Rupees (IRS), which is similar to Dollar, Pound or Dirham and not Paise which is similar to Shilling, Pence or Fils. Seems like a deliberate effort to devalue the Indian Currency from the author — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:43, 19 March 2014 (UTC)

4 gears ? haha[edit]

My suzuki alto has 5 gears plus reverse.

Possible restructuring[edit]

I think this page could do with having some detail added, which I can do - but do people think the detail about Pak Suzuki and Jiangnan should still be included, or ought they to go on new pages? (I don't mean the fact that the Alto is made by them, but rather the extra bits about factory location, the rest of their ranges etc.) AJHW 17:09, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

I'd say keep separate pages, at least for the Maruti 800, because it's had such a great impact, whereas the Pak and Chinese production have come later and aren't as significant individually. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:50, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

When in doubt, separate articles for separate models / brands helps the 'Keep it Simple' requirement, which both makes the project more user friendly as a device for disseminating knowledge and avoids confusing folks with things they hadn't wished nor expected to discover. But obviously there is a critical mass 'below' which a separate article isn't justified simply because, collectively, we've nothing to write about the 'separate' - differently named, assembled some place else or whatever - variant. That can sometimes be addressed by translating the article from the wiki version of the language of the country where the different version is assembled / manufactured. In this case I know nothing about the Pak and Chinese production, but economic develpments in Asia mean that if present trends continue, maybe they're in the process of becoming more 'significant individually' - especially to wiki contributors / readers based in relevant countries. The good news, here, is that we seem already to have a willing volunteer to kick off the separate articles. Charles01 (talk) 12:50, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
To the question about merging the Zen article with Suzuki Alto, I would say leave it as such. The reason is, while the old Zen was a version of the Alto, teh new one isnt. And in effect, the Zen is a brand of its own in India.

As for the details, can cross link the stuff that is shared. AJ-India (talk) 17:23, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

I, too, think the articles on the different models (particularly the Zen, which wasn't originally based on the Alto anyway) should stay separate - in most cases the models have either mechanical differences (eg Maruti 800) or differences in market scope and significance (eg Daewoo Tico). I'd be inclined to split the bits on Pak Suzuki and Jiangnan off as separate articles, since the Alto doesn't make up the whole of their production. So if the suggested merge is as a result of my suggestion, I'd like to withdraw it - and if not, I'm against it. AJHW (talk) 15:05, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

I've now added the detail to the page. The Pak Suzuki page already has some details of the Mehran. I'm aware that the information about Jiangnan has gone; but I've taken a copy of it and I'll include it in a separate page on Jiangnan. If nobody objects by the end of the month I'll take the merge proposals off Daewoo Tico etc. AJHW (talk) 20:17, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

hello gents , HELP PLEASE anyone know the correct wiring connection to 12volt coil / ballast type and dizzy for 800cc 88model alto i lost diagram after disconnecting wires THANK YOU LES —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:39, 5 August 2008 (UTC)


I oppose the merge, as the Suzuki Alto is basically the Maruti 800, and NOT the Marui Alto. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 08:45, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree with the merger of Maruti Suzuki Alto with Suzuki Alto, as both are the same. The Maruti Suzuki 800 was an earlier version of the Alto, and the current Maruti Suzuki Alto was also sold as Suzuki Alto overseas, which is now replaced by what is called Maruti Suzuki A-star in India. So, the Alto is same.
I disagree with merging the Maruti Suzuki Zen with Alto, as although the first generation was a version of an Alto, the second generation, the Zen Estilo, isnt.
Thus Zen is a name plate on its own.AJ-India (talk) 16:16, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

I agree with the merge. The Maruti Alto, Maruti Zen & Maruti A-Star are based on the Suzuki Alto. With a little restructuring of the Suzuki Alto Page, These can be merged. Suraj (talk) 13:39, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Maruti Suzuki 800,not Maruti Suzuki Zen and Maruti Suzuki Alto are all different cars and need to be treated differently. While Maruti 800 had a 799 CC engine, Alto also has the same with the exception of 1 version that has a 1.1 Litre engine similar to the one on Zen.


No, both are different cars... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:59, 17 March 2009 (UTC)



why are the measurements put in inches? this car is not made in america or its 51st state (canada). they are the ones who use inches, and the alto is not sold there. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 234234234h9787987 (talkcontribs) 19:25, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Bodge Job of an article[edit]

Aside from focusing solely on the Indian models of the Suzuki Alto this article wrongly features the Nissan Pixo as the same car, it is in fact almost a rebadged Suzuki Alto with obvious styling and structural differences. I oppose the redirect to this article on that sole basis that this article doesn't even mention the Pixo and states simply that the Suzuki Alto is "also called Nissan Pixo" when in fact it isn't, they're different vehicles. Thanks Jenova20 15:09, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Most of this article concerns older Suzuki Alto iterations and not the Indian cars. The Pixo is simply a rebadged, Indian-built Suzuki Alto with a slightly different front. If you have more useful info on this car, feel free to add it to that section.  ⊂| Mr.choppers |⊃  (talk) 16:45, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

words of choice[edit]

It reads "However the Alto's feels a tad better to use. The engine too is more refined and not as harsh as contemporaries." better than what; what contemporaries. Sounds a little promotional! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:02, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
