Post Manesar strike at Maruti Suzuki Factory, Alto sales have trembled. The manufacturer is offering huge discounts worth Rs. 56,000 on a car which costs Rs. 2.7 Lacs. Add to the woes - Hyundai Eon is also gaining the popularity chart., The question again comes in Alto Vs Eon
Coming 3 months will be deciding factor especially when festive season is round the corner.

The biggest issue with Eon is its pricing. Had the car would have been priced lesser by 30-35K - it would have made considerable difference to .van and man hire

Fascinating stuff. Any pictures?
Hell is other people.
Agreed Sam. More news on this is essential. CAR - WAKE UP! I’m particularly concerned about the comment that “ festive season is round the corner”. How tantalising. Did they know this and, if not, were they going too fast to avoid hitting it? It possibly explains why Santa seemed to miss me out in December.
I do wonder about who buys entry segment cars though in the western markets. My observation is that they are mainly bought by retirees who value the percieved peace of mind of a new car over a used one. These cars are then enmshed into the retired couple's life and lavished with attention that would shame many a BMW, and when grampy finally gets too old to drive they seem to be passed down in the family to someone who values the car far less. Eventually, when the original purchaser finally passes away they thrashed to the threshold of trash yet still refuse to die, usually with the cheapest tyres possible on them. Once registration and insurance exceeds the car's remaining worth, they are scrapped, finally.
They are usually white cars as well.
I take it those 'western markets' you're talking about are western Australia? Perth is it? (well that's the only inhabited place I seem able to locate on a map)...

I've never been to Perth. When I decide to get on a 'plane to go that sort of distance, I prefer having to use my passport. If they get their oft stated wish of seceding, then I may go.
