All of you would have heard about the Suzuki Alto, but I don't think any of you would have perceived it the way I did, although many of you would have definitely driven it the way the did that night.
See, many of my friends and family have high-end cars but they are too scared to even drive them on a daily basis, forget using their engines to their maximum potential. One reason for this fright is the low-ground clearance which is a damaging factor because of the potholes and sometimes unreasonable speed breakers. Which takes us to the second reason that the cost for spare parts is vey high and if you end-up damaging an axle or two then that would easily cost you a lakh or two.
The thing is that the more expensive the car, the more scared you will be driving it around. And the Alto 800 is one of the cheapest cars in the country. It's small and very grippy which means you don't feel scared while slipping it in between cars on the expressway. You can crash it completely and get another one at the cost of one high-end car's axle. It's low on maintenance and it's fitted with the 'tried n tested' Suzuki suspension system which by the way is also vey cheap. It will go upto 140 Kmph which is as fast as any supercar driver would take his supercar on an Indian road.
I'm not saying that you necessarily have to be poor to buy an Alto 800. I mean if you're poor then you most probably wouldn't drive it like the way I did that night. But if you have some money and garage space to spare then you should definitely buy one, just for the fun. I promise you it won't disappoint you like your other cars.
Don't believe me? Try racing it with a Bugatti Veyron on the streets and you'll know what I'm talking about.
