Maruti Alto K10 Latest Updates

Maruti Suzuki has discontinued the Alto K10. The hatchback hasn't received any major update since 2014 and was also not updated to comply with the upcoming BS6 emission norms.

The Alto K10 was powered by a 1.0-litre engine pushing out 68PS of power and 90Nm of peak torque. The engine was known for its rev-happy nature and was paired with a 5-speed manual and AMT. The hatchback was priced from Rs 3.60 lakh to Rs 4.40 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Alto K10 Specifications

The Alto K10 packs a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder engine that's very refined for its price tag. 68PS of power and 90Nm of torque deliver sprightly performance thanks to the car's low kerb weight of around 750kg. Transmission options include 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT. The light weight also helps it achieve a fuel efficiency rating of 24kmpl regardless of the number of pedals you choose.

Alto K10 Variants

The Alto K10 is available in three variants, LX, LXi and VXi. LXi is also available with optional factory CNG kit while the VXi trim is available with the 5-speed AMT. Driver airbag is offered across the range as optional equipment. The LX starts at Rs 3.26 lakh and misses out on body-coloured bumpers and power steering. A driver airbag on any trim will cost Rs 6,000 except on the VXi and VXi (O) with a manual transmission. The VXi (O) costs Rs 3.79 lakh and is Rs 20,000 pricier than the VXi but gets other goodies as well such as body coloured mirrors and door handles, remote central locking and front fog lamps. The priciest variants of the Alto K10 are the VXi AMT (O) and the LXi CNG (O) in metallic shades, both of which hover at Rs 4.15 lakh.

Alto K10 Features

The Alto nameplate is Maruti's all-time best-selling brand and for a good reason. Its simple lines please (almost) all and offend none. Maruti has updated the design of the second generation Alto K10 to give a modern look without going overboard. It is a small car, and it looks like one.

There's no running away from the fact that you're talking about an entry-level car. The Alto K10 not only looks small from the outside but also feels like it on the inside. Cabin space is adequate for average sized adults, but tall passengers will complain about the limited leg and headroom in the back seat. Front seat, however, can easily accommodate two six-footers. Similarly, the boot space is also in short supply and rated at 177 litres. The plastic quality is basic and functional at best, but then, that's where it excels. It does only a few things but does it very well. Ergonomics are spot on for the most part, and controls easily fall into hands.

Maruti Alto K10 Competitors

Hyundai Eon 1.0 Kappa: A stylish hatch, the Eon comes with Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture design theme. Being a Hyundai, it offers solid reliability and lower cost of ownership. The 1.0-litre engine in the Eon has a bit more power and torque, but its heavier curb weight keeps its performance at par with the Alto K10. The Eon doesn't offer an automatic of any kind.

Datsun Redi-GO 1.0: The Redi-GO shares its engines with the Renault Kwid minus the AMT option. The Redi-GO’s one box design looks modern, and the DRL (daytime running lights) give the hatch a premium look. Another noteworthy feature here is the remote central locking for the top variant. The car's black interiors look nice, and the cabin is surprisingly spacious despite its shorter length.

Renault Kwid: The Kwid has made budget hatchbacks cool, but not at the expense of practicality. It is surprisingly spacious, very well equipped and handles bad roads very well. The only critical miss is the lack of ABS, but the competition doesn't offer that either. The optional AMT variants with the bigger engine offer, what can be called, ‘the world’s simplest interface in an automatic’. It does come with a steep initial unlearning curve though.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Alto K10

Q. Hi which is best automatic transmission car under 6 lac?
  • There are ample of cars available with AMT under this budget such as - Renault Kwid, Maruti Alto K10, Maruti Celerio, Maruti Ignis, etc. As new car purchase would depend on a lot of factors like budget, segment or brand preference, transmission, fuel type, specific feature requirement etc. Hence, we request you to share your inputs so that we can assist you in right direction. If you are travelling less than 50-60km a day, opt for a petrol car instead of a diesel. With the extra Rs 1-1.50 lakh spent on a diesel purchase, you can actually drive a similar petrol car for as many as two years! So, do your math carefully. A diesel usually makes sense if you are driving above 60/70km a day. Click on the following link to search out these cars: https://bit.ly/2uocNCo
  • There are following options ..Celerio, Tiago, Kwid and Grand I10 (slightly more budget). My first choice will be Grand I 10 Rather than celerio or Tiago. I would prefer Kwid. Which I heard is having better Automatic Gear Mechanism.
  • Automatic transmission is only successful in MUVs and SUVs, else it's only formality which lower your vehicles mileage. If you buy a car below 6 lac please go with manual transmission.

  • Maruti Alto 800 is one of the India's largest selling cars. After the Maruti discontinued iconic 800, it brought Alto 800 into the market. Alto 800 comes with improved design and robust engineering and thanks to the high mileage (24.7 kmpl); the Alto 800 continues to remain the preferred choice for first-time car buyers. On the design front, the Alto 800 feels dated, but its strength lies in its reliable mechanicals, extensive sales and service network, low running costs and strong resale value. On the other hand, Alto K10 is the more powerful version of Maruti 800. It is a good city car, offering a peppy-but-efficient engine, good drive dynamics and, most importantly, an automated-manual transmission. Maruti's legendary service network and reliability also make the Alto K10 one of the best hatchbacks to buy for the asking price.Do take the test drive for both the cars in order to get a complete understanding regarding the ease and comfort offered.

Q. Wanna buy automatic car. Which model is best Maruti Alto, Maruti Ignis or Maruti Celerio?
  • Maruti's legendary service network and reliability make these cars are good options to buy. The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 is a good city car, offering a peppy-but-efficient engine, good drive dynamics and, most importantly, an automated-manual transmission. If we talk about Celerio, it offers a good driving experience and comes with a smooth gearbox too but it hasn't that appeal that Alto and Ignis have. If we talk about Ignis, it has good build quality, better power, space, ride height. Its driving ergonomics provide a better commanding view on the road. So, If you are on a budget and looking for a city slicker hatchback for your family you may go for Alto K10 otherwise Maruti Ignis would be a better option. Do take a test drive in order to clear your all doubts. Check out authorised dealership details.
Q. When will be launch in BS6 Alto K10?
  • Certainly it's good for long journey. It has combination of peppy performance & fuel efficiency like no other. Brisk acceleration & handling is boon on tricky situations. However once it goes beyond 120-130kmph steering feels nervous. Another con is space inside. If only 4 passengers are traveling its good but 5th passenger is a squeeze. I have driven it nonstop for few hundred kms without any problem. Recently I drove it 1800km in a span of 4 days. I love cruising on highways at 90-100kmph daylong.
  • As of now, the brand hasn't revealed the complete details about the launch of BS6 compliant engine in Maruti Alto K10. So we would suggest you wait for its launch and stay tuned for further updates.
  • Might not.

    Its an AMT .Use for Daily office 8 KM + 8 KM= 16KM daily in bumper traffic takes more than 1 hour to reach 8 KM, in such situation gives a mileage of 12KM / Litter of petrol with out AC. Easy to drive in bumper traffic , no Need to press accelerator to move few yard in traffic just run on removing the break. As no gear , hence no thinking about changing gear and pressing clutch.No need to think what will happen if clutch and accelerator will not match. As i am using the same from 11 months, hence no cost till now on service. Being compact , Easy to Park and turn in small space. Good AC. Equipped with Driver side airbag, seat belt indicator. open door indicator etc. Alarm will ring if key removed without switching of head light. Manual central locking facility means all door will be closed in case of driver door is closed. child look will open only on removing key from ignition. Ignition will not work unless gear is not moved to neutral so protect ignition switch. Good ground clearance.

    I am driving my alto K10 vxi 2012 for 7 years now and last year(6th year) we went for a trip which was to our home town 610km but there was no over heat because of liquid cooled engine, we were 4 with luggage i could feel 6 people were sitting but not even a lag due to it's 1.0L engine, i would let you know the way was hill so you can guess how my car was tested. If you are looking for city rides and also sudden trips like me for 500-600kms then without any complain i would like to suggest you alto k10. Now for the down backs= the passenger side headrest isn't there which wasn't good, boot space is quiet less.

  • 3.7

    Alto k10 is a good Car for daily commute in heavy city traffic.I feel Seats are not comfortable which can be improved and interior plastic quality and switches quality should be improved. Otherwise it is good option for replacing two wheeler. What we can expect in this price . But mileage is best. I am getting mileage of 24 kmpl on highway. Hope company will improve this car as and when required.

  • 3.7

    Beginners car...we bought it in Feb 2011. Mileage in Kolkata traffic was 15kmpl(30km daily for 1st 7 years; 115km weekly since last 2 years). Our driver has maintained it well. Distance till date is around 90k km. Changed suspension in 2016. Ride comfort had degraded after 4 years. Didn"t he last 2 years, mainatinance cost was above 9k and 2 times per year.

  • 4.3

    Its a good car for the price you pay. We use for a 4 adult+ Kid trips of more than 04 days and believe me, if you pack well, you can carve out space for shopped items on the way back home. But rattling is an issue even the service center people acknowledge not being resolved which developes after some use.Over all big recommendation.!!
