The all-new Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 is the latest in the illustrious line of Alto hatchbacks, which has dominated Indian roads for the last couple of decades. The legendary Alto hatchback has been a best seller for nearly two decades and the latest K10 version aims to improve on an already excellent car. Here is why the all-new Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 must be your first car.
The Maruti Suzuki Alto line-up has always been a car that has kept up the latest trends, and the all-new Alto K10 is no different. The car gets a totally revised design that is cheery and eye-catching. The honeycomb front grille and the peppy headlamps give the all-new Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 a wide, planted stance upfront. The honeycomb design theme continues to the profile of the car with the wheel caps also getting this smart and suave design element. At the rear, the new LED combination tail lamps complete the Alto K10’s contemporary looks. The eye-catching colours in which the new car is available with makes it a head turner. The all-new Alto K10 is available in six colours: Earth Gold, Solid White, Silky Silver, Granite Grey, Speedy Blue and Sizzling Red.
Affordable, in every aspect
What does affordability really mean? Does it stop with just the purchase of a car, or does it have to do with the entire lifecycle of the car that includes the cost of fuel and everything else? Well, this is what the Alto K10, like every other Alto before it, manages to nail. The all-new Alto K10 is affordable in every aspect, be it the initial purchase cost (Starting price of Rs. 3.99 lakh), fuel efficiency (24.9 Kmpl*), affordable service costs or the reasonable cost of spare parts. These set of factors are critical to driving sales of the Alto range, and the K10 is the latest to join this illustrious league.
Compact yet spacious
The all-new Alto K10 manages to be compact enough to be squeezed into the smallest of parking slots while spacious enough to accommodate the entire family and their luggage. In short, it’s a masterstroke in packaging. The car’s 3530 mm length, 1,490 mm width, 1,520 height and 4.5 meter turning radius means that it’s compact enough to squeeze through the narrowest of Indian roads while the 2,380 mm wheelbase make it quite spacious on the inside. The 214-liter boot is testament to the terrific space management in the Alto K10. A compact car on the outside, and a big car on the inside – this is the Alto K10 for you.
Loaded with technology
Technology is a big reason for the Alto’s enduring success, and the K10 is the latest and the most advanced of Altos sold in India. Let’s look at the engine first. The Alto K10 is powered by the K10C petrol engine. This engine features cutting-edge technologies such as DualJet (twin injectors per cylinder) and Dual VVT (variable valve technology) for punchy performance, great fuel efficiency and butter-smooth refinement.
The AGS (auto gear shift) technology makes driving the Alto K10 an absolute breeze even in stop-and-go traffic while also ensuring that fuel efficiency on the automatic trim (24.9 Kmpl*) is even better than that on the manual trim (24.39 Kmpl*).
In safety, the all-new Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 is based on the sturdy HEARTECT platform made of high tensile steel. The car offers a slew of active and passive safety features** including ABS with EBD, twin airbags, reverse parking sensors, high speed alerts and seatbelt reminder to make every ride a safe and secure experience.
The cabin of the all-new Alto K10 is tech-laden too. Occupying the centerstage is the SmartPlay Studio with Smartphone navigation. The touchscreen offers calling, music streaming and also access to Suzuki Connect – an advanced telematics solution that offers vehicle tracking, safety and security alerts, and remote operations. The steering mounted audio and voice controls are very handy too.
