Celebrating your first ride

By afaqs! news bureau , afaqs!, National | In Automotives | April 14, 2016
Growing up has been so much fun thanks to the close-to-the-heart experiences we have had...riding on your dad's shoulder until he was tired, the first bike ride, the first car your dad brought home, or for that matter, even the first car you bought with the money you earned from that part-time job.

And we wouldn't be off beam in stating that each of us has experienced a 'Maruti Suzuki Alto moment' in our lives. Right from the days when every second car on the street was a Maruti Suzuki Alto, to a time when it takes a few seconds or even a minute to gauge the model and make of a car that goes zip, zap, zoom, past you, Maruti Suzuki Alto has held up to its promise-to be 'India ki pehli sawaari'-quite literally!

Having sold 30 lakh Altos in India in the one and a half decades that it has been present in the market, the brand has beyond doubt touched lives of Indians across different culture and age groups. The result: The brand enjoys being referred as the country's favourite first car today!

Celebrating this incredible milestone-which no other car brand has ever reached, Maruti Suzuki Alto, calls out to its huge extended family of all those people who the brand has touched in their 15-year long journey to share their Alto story on www.marutisuzuki.com. The brand urges users to share their 'Maruti Suzuki Alto moment' and get a chance to win exciting prizes.

So if you have a song, a movie name, a dialogue, you can relate to when thinking of your peheli sawaari, or your first family trip in your new car, a date you still blush thinking about, the best image of your Alto, even a word to describe your Alto story, write to us on Twitter and Facebook, using #30LakhAltos and you never know what might unfold.
