At certain stages of development, many countries had tried to create a massive and popular car. So it was in pre-war Germany, Italy, France and others. It is clear that the people's car must be cheap. So creators were forced to find compromises and buyers must be ready for it. If a country has enough number of people who agree with the slogan "It's better to drive badly than walk good", you can assume that the people's car took place. Sometimes it turns out to be very successful so much so, that Volkswagen, for example, is preparing to produce a new "Beetle" and Renault returned to production of 4 CV. But these were machines made with the soul - nostalgia, not economic necessity was the cause of their "second birth."
Maruti 800 represents a typical, externally very simple Japanese mini car of 80th which has angular look and flat panels. It is a small and short vehicle at R12 wheels. Maruti is produced in a variety of options for the body, from hatchback up to the van. Very thin doors can be open at a large angle and provide quick and easy landing on the front and rear seats. Constructors offered almost vertical landing to the driver and there are plenty space above the head. But the view from the front seats gorgeous due to a large glass area. There are not pockets for small items at the door, the car just do not have enough space for it. Manufacturer categorically stated that the vehicle is strictly for four people.
Driver's seat is usual. It quipped with a big enough for its class steering wheel with two small and barely noticeable audio buttons on the panel. Also it has very practical caverage of the passenger compartment. Dashboard is made of dark gray plastic, but the floor is covered with light gray leather-substitute. The rear door with heated rear window, washing and janitor opens up quickly and without problems. The luggage compartment is modest. It will need to put back the rear row of seats to expand the cargo capacity of the vehicle. But transportation of the heavy cargo is strictly forbidden.
