The new 2017 Maruti Alto 800 Utsav limited edition builds upon the VXi trim. This means you get all the features of the top-end trim along with the new features that are exclusive to the Utsav model. The new car is roughly Rs 20,000 costlier than the regular variant. Here are all the details on the latest limited edition of the Alto 800 A-segment hatchback.
Maruti Alto 800 Utsav Limited Edition Features
The new Maruti Alto 800 Utsav limited edition comes with a handful of visual updates that help the car have a higher visual appeal than the regular model.

The Utsav edition brings in red-yellow decals on the rear doors and the rear fenders. Even the taillamps get some chrome garnish and so does the lower-end of the boot. That’s not all as the car also gets chrome-plated ORVM caps. The latest special model comes with rear parking sensors. The interior gets a steering wheel cover and red trim for the centre console.
