On one hand, United has not installed any airbags in Alpha, while Suzuki Alto comes with Dual Airbags, making it much safer as compared to Alpha. The United Motors must work on installing this feature in its hatchback because airbag is not luxury option, rather an essential one.
In case of Alloy Wheels, Alpha has an edge because United Motors in offering this feature in its car. However, Suzuki Alto comes without them. The alloy rims are more beneficial, reliable and sturdy as compared to steel ones, hence, a good addition by the United.
