Maruti Alto 800 will come with factory fitted CNG kit as an option just the the older generation Alto with 800 CC engine. The FD8 800 CC engine is already works quite well with the CNG-kit which comes fitted from Maruti Suzuki without any warranty issues. At the times when the price difference between petrol and diesel is quite high and more and more new buyers are opting for Diesel cars, it makes perfect sense for Maruti to offer small petrol cars with CNG so that more buyers get attracted towards them. CNG offers low running cost like a diesel car with lesser initial cost and lesser maintenance charges when compared to a diesel car.
