New-look Maruti 800 to cost more; Euro III version being rolled out

Passenger cars market leader, Maruti Udyog Ltd, has announced that it is raising the price of its volume-driving model - Maruti 800 - after effecting design changes to it.

The company has raised the prices of the Euro-II compliant version of the 800-cc car by Rs 3,000 to Rs 2,08,678 (standard). It also announced that it is in the process of rolling out its Euro-III compliant variant of Maruti 800 and it would be available across the country in the next ten days.

The Euro-III version comes at a higher price of Rs 2,14,678 and is geared to meet the Euro III emission norms being introduced from April 1 across 11 major cities.

The Managing Director of Maruti Udyog Ltd, Mr Jagdish Khattar, said, "Just when there was talk about Maruti 800 being phased out, this iconic brand has donned a fresh new look and again surprised everyone. The new-look Maruti 800 is Maruti's gift to the millions of two-wheeler owners in the country who are looking to upgrade to a car."

Mr K. Saito, Director (Marketing and Sales), Maruti Udyog Ltd, said Maruti 800's face-lift has addressed the complaint that the model had not changed its looks for a few years.

The new Maruti 800 comes with clear headlamps with a headlight levelling mechanism and clear lens rear combination lamps and a new grille. The Euro-III compliant version of the new Maruti 800 also has a 32-bit electronic control unit.
