Agreed, Maruti Alto K10 is not a head turner, but still it is sold in more than 25 lakh units since launched in 2000.
The car is now launched once again in a facelift avatar for Rs 3.06 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
This time, there aren’t only cosmetic changes made, but also a needful technical deployment carried out that is meant to change the course of Maruti’s selling point in India. And it’s none other than ‘AMT gearbox’ which the Celerio was seen sporting earlier. Now, the AMT with Alto K10 facelift tags it as the cheapest automatic car in India.
Noticeably, Alto K10 has also changed on dimensions. Length got smaller by 75mm, width grows by 15mm. Interior is completely refreshed and more space are added inside the cabin.
Engine of 998cc 3-cylinder marked with K10 is reworked for making the better move and is also chopped on weight for better efficiency. The overall fuel-efficiency is rated at 24.07kmpl as per ARAI.
Maximum power of 68PS is delivered at 6000rpm and 90Nm of torque at 3500rpm.
The designing inside the cabin of Alto K10 facelift went upmarket than before but still it feels not up to mark of rival from Korean carmaker, Hyundai Eon. Piano black inserts on central console with sliver accents pushing that feel further. The feature list is consisted of integrated music-system with USB and Aux-in, internally adjustable wing mirrors, front power windows and tachometer.
Six colours and four variants are made available. The AMT Alto K10 will be available only in top-end VXi variant and CNG for only mid-spec LXi trim.
