Maruti Suzuki is all set to launch the next-generation Alto K10 hatchback in India. The small family hatchback would be officially launched on 18 August 2022. We would be driving the all-new K10 next week and a detailed review video and article would be published on our website and YouTube channel. Now, before the official launch, a base variant of the upcoming Alto K10 hatchback has been spotted at a dealer stockyard. The video show the car without any camouflage and it has already gone viral on internet. The video clearly shows what the base variant of the new Maruti Alto K10 would actually offer.
The video has been uploaded by SSD GARAGE on their YouTube channel. The car has reached dealer stockyard, which is an indication that the manufacturer has already started the production and dispatched it to dealers. Like base variant of any Maruti model, the new Alto K10 also misses out on many features, that we saw in the higher variants. In terms of design, the new Alto K10 looks entirely different from the outgoing model. Maruti had discontinued K10 from the market back in 2020 due to new emission norms. In this new avatar, the Alto K10 gets a different looking headlamp.
Actually, it is a headlamp that is a combination of what we saw in the Alto 800 and the new Celerio. There is a Suzuki logo just below the bonnet and a large front grille. The combination of the new headlamp and the grille gives it a very unique look from the front. As this is the base variant, Maruti does not offer any fog lamps with the base variant of the K10. There is even a possibility that the higher variants might also miss on this feature as no provisions for fog lamps on the bumper. The headlamps and turn indicators are all regular halogen units.
Coming to the side profile, the Alto K10 base variant gets steel rims without any wheel caps. The steel rims are painted in Silver shade and the turn indicators are mounted on the front fenders. The car seen here in the leaked video is white in colour and it misses out body coloured ORVMs and door handles. The door handles on the Alto are similar to what we saw in new gen Celerio. At the rear, the Alto K10 badge is seen on the tail gate and the tail lamps all remain the same. The leaked video does not give a clear look on the interiors of the next-generation Alto’s base variant.
It is expected to come with absolutely no feature. It would offer AC, airbags and reverse parking sensors as standard feature. The base variant might miss on features like power windows and power steering. The Alto K10 will be powered by an updated K10C series 1.0 litre petrol engine. The same engine is available with S-Presso as well. It generates 66 Bhp and 89 Nm of peak torque. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT gearbox. Maruti is likely to introduce CNG version of the Alto K10 in near future. Maruti Alto K10 will compete with cars like Renault Kwid in the segment.
