Introduction

Maruti Suzuki has revealed the Alto K10, an updated version of its sub-compact hatchback that replaces the outgoing Alto K10. The new model gets a slightly bigger engine and some cosmetic updates as well. The new 1.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, which makes it slightly more powerful than its predecessor’s 1.2-litre unit. Maruti Suzuki says that this new engine will help improve fuel efficiency by up to 5% over the previous version while delivering better performance on high speeds with improved acceleration performance.”

The sub-compact hatchback gets a 1.0-litre engine from the K12. This engine is already available in the K12 and has been tuned for better fuel economy, along with a more powerful delivery of 82 bhp (72.5 kW). It is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and produces 82 bhp (72.5 kW) at 7500 rpm and 110 Nm torque at 5000 rpm with peak power being delivered between 4000 to 6000 RPMs.

Revised headlamp and grille design, and a new bumper.

The new K10 is also going to get a revised headlamp and grille design, as well as a new bumper. It’s clear from the images that Maruti Suzuki has made some significant changes to the front fascia of its smallest SUV. The headlights have been reshaped to accommodate LED technology, which should make them more efficient and produce a better light output than before. Additionally, it appears that the grille area has been redesigned with an air intake system that allows fresh air into the engine compartment while also providing additional cooling capability for your car.

Finally, you’ll notice that there are now two separate tail lamps—one on each side—instead of just one (as seen in earlier models). This change means drivers can tell which direction they’re facing without having to look back over their shoulder every few seconds!

Larger 14-inch wheels, new paint schemes and updated graphics for the instrument cluster.

The new Alto K10 will come with a variety of engine options. The 1.0-liter Petrol engine with 49 PS of power and 72 Nm of torque is available as well as the 1.2-liter Petrol engine with 60 PS and 85 Nm, which can be paired with either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The K10 also has an option for more powerful engines such as the 1.3-liter Petrol turbocharged unit that produces 99 PS at 5500 rpm and 177 Nm from 1800 to 4000 rpm when coupled with a 6 speed manual gearbox setup or 140 bhp at 6000 rpm alongside an impressive 172 lb/ft torque figure between 1800 – 4000 rpm spread across its entire rev range (1800 – 6400).

Cabin features like a music system with Bluetooth connectivity and steering-mounted controls.

The cabin features a music system with Bluetooth connectivity and steering-mounted controls. The driver’s seat can be adjusted to fit your body, while the passenger’s seat also has height adjustment capabilities.

Additionally, you’ll find an LCD instrument cluster that displays all of the relevant information for your travel needs.

Safety kit includes dual airbags, ABS with EBD, cornering brake control (CBC), rear parking sensors, front seat belt reminder, speed alert system and ISOFIX mounts on the rear seats.

Safety features are important, but they’re not the only thing that makes a car safe. Your safety kit should also include:

  • Dual airbags (can be combined with ISOFIX mounts on rear seats)
  • ABS with EBD (electronic brake force distribution) and brake assist system (BA)
  • Cornering brake control (CBC), which activates the brakes when you turn sharply while parking or reversing in reverse

The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 gets a brand new engine and some cosmetic updates.

The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 gets a brand new engine and some cosmetic updates. The car will be available in four variants: 1.3-litre petrol, 1.3-litre diesel, 1.3-litre petrol with 5-speed manual transmission or 1.3L diesel with 5 speed manual transmission (same as first generation).

The new engine is based on the same design as the CNG version of Alto K10 which was launched last year in India but there are several changes made to improve performance, efficiency and safety features of this new model such as:

  • A higher compression ratio of 14:1 along with variable valve timing system (VVT) technology which help improve fuel economy by up to 10 per cent when compared with its predecessor;
  • New headlamp design incorporating projector lamps for high beam illumination;
  • New bumper which now comes standard rather than being optional like before;
  • New wheels from Bajaj Auto whose design cues were borrowed from those used on their upcoming range of motorcycles including 599cc twin engine sedan called ‘Royal Enfield Interceptor’ set to launch sometime next year – these wheels feature spoked rims wrapped around thin spokes at both ends so they look wider than traditional spokes found elsewhere on vehicles today but remain lightweight thanks primarily due their hollow center section allowing air flow through them easily without getting stuck anywhere along way due excessive weight added due lack thereof;

Conclusion

The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 gets a brand new engine and some cosmetic updates. The sub-compact hatchback gets a 1.0-litre engine from the K12, which will propel it to 100 kmph in 11.9 seconds and top out at 155 kmph. It also has revised headlamp and grille design, and a new bumper. Larger 14-inch wheels, new paint schemes and updated graphics for the instrument cluster are other features on offer with this model
