Q.

Why is Alto being priced higher ? '
Alto Lxi version having engine capacity of 796cc is priced around Rs 2.91 lakh (on road) or Rs 365 per cc
Zen Estilio LXi version having engine capacity of 1061 cc is just priced Rs 3.37 lakh (on road) or Rs 317 per cc
Here one can see eventhough Zen Estilio is having better engine capacity and comfort it is still priced lower per CC when compared with Alto

I have first time in my automobile carrer of 12 yrs seen that some one is calculating the price of a car on thr basis of its Engine capacity i.e cost of the vehicle / engine capacity . Any ways the cost of the vehicle depends on various factors like th ecomponents , engine , features and Zen had better features than alto . which vehicle would u like to buy ?

firstly , prices are not fixed according to cc , the comepany has is own policies for pricing , again esteem is not a popular vehicle now and not much in demand, alto being a small family car is in great demand , so finally the demand fetches the higher price for the company

It is not only the engine capacity, better you consult a automobile engineer he can explain.
