Maruti discontinues base variants of Alto & S-Presso
Dual airbags are now mandatory, hence, variants that used to be offered with a single airbag have been taken off the shelves.
Maruti Suzuki has discontinued the entry-level variants of the Alto and S-Presso. The Alto range now starts from Rs. 4.08 lakh, while the S-Presso costs Rs. 3.98 lakh (ex-showroom).
