Editor's View of Maruti Alto K10
Peppy engine, convenience-enhancing automatic transmission, comfortable ride
Cramped rear passenger space, no standard safety systems, poor NVH levels
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. Maruti's legendary service network and reliability also make the Alto K10 one of the best hatchbacks to buy for the asking price.

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.
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.
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.
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.!!
very nice car .I love this car.my FAVOURITE car
Interior is Not Good Just improve interior
at straight ..power packed pocket bomb.
very good condition and smothered drive so compartable feeling
Nice and good for small family

Maruti Alto K10 Highlights
Alto K10 is the more powerful version of Maruti 800 and is pitted against the likes of Renault Kwid, Hyundai Eon, and Datsun redi-Go. To differentiate it from Alto 800, Maruti has used sharp cuts and creases on the exteriors. Even the interiors of Alto K10 follow a different pattern though the quality and fit-finish leave much to be desired. Under the hood, 1.0-liter K-series 3-cylinder petrol engine powers the Alto K10 and its 68PS/90Nm is good enough to propel this Maruti to triple digit speed without breaking any sweat. The gasoline engine is mated to 5-speed manual transmission which sends the drive to the front wheels and Maruti has done a good job by offering VXi variant of Alto K10 with the convenience of AMT. Priced in the range of Rs 3.26-4.12 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Maruti Alto K10 caters to the customers looking for some extra zing from their budget hatchback.
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 Exterior and Interior
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.
The Alto K10 offers the same no-frills ownership experience that you'd associate with an Alto in a package that's quite a bit faster than the basic Alto 800. It has its shortcomings, which swell up when parked next to the Kwid. Thankfully, it packs no surprises, and that's its strength.
