India’s first modified Maruti Alto to get an electric sunroof: This is it

Maruti Suzuki is India’s largest car manufacturer and they have a variety of product in their line up. Maruti Suzuki is popular among buyers for its wide spread dealership and service network and affordable pricing and maintenance cost. Maruti Alto is currently the most affordable vehicle in India from Maruti Suzuki. We currently have the Alto 800 which was introduced in 2012. The version before 2012 is quite popular among those who like modification and we have seen several videos and images of the same on internet. Here we have a video where a Maruti Alto has been modified and it is probably the first one in India to get an electric sunroof.

The video has been uploaded by ENGINEER SINGH on their YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger introduces the owner of the modified Alto and he then talks about all the modifications that have been made to the car. The owner starts by talking about the changes at the front. On the bonnet, he has installed a bonnet lip with black masking in front of it. The headlights on this Alto have been slightly tinted or blacked out and the grille also gets a black finish.

The bumper is all black and it also houses aftermarket fog lamps with ring shaped LED DRLs. As we come down, at the lower part of the bumper, owner has installed splitter. As we move to side profile, you notice a hole that is punched on to the side fender. The whole is actually functional and is connected to the air filter. This has been done for better air intake. The owner has also pasted his blood group on the side fender.

Other than this, the owner has installed side skirts and blindspot mirrors. The stock ORVMs have been replaced for an aftermarket unit too. The main attraction here however is the 13 inch aftermarket alloy wheel which looks good on the car. Just like on the headlights, the owner has given a smoked out effect to the tail lamps and has also installed several stickers.

An aftermarket exhaust has been installed on this Alto which produces a sporty note. On the inside, the original steering wheel on this hatchback was replaced with an racing car steering from Sparco. The owner has also installed an aftermarket tachometer as the Alto did not come with one on any variant. The gear shifter gets an aftermarket knob and touchscreen infotainment screen has also been installed. video also shows the speaker, sub-woofer and amplifier setup that the owner has installed in this car. The electric sunroof which is main attraction on this Alto is also seen in the video

Overall, the work done on this car looks good but, it is not the best. We have seen several modified Alto’s in the past that looks better than this. Maruti Suzuki Alto is powered by a 796-cc, 3-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine. The engine generated 46.3 Bhp and 62 Nm of torque. It was available with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard.
