About Maruti Alto K10

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.

Maruti Alto K10 Overview

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.
  • Wagon R or Ignis
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.

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

    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.

    Overall I happy with this car,but we exchanged our old Maruti 800 and dealer C M AUTO CHANDIGARH had held up Re 5000 which were required to be refunded after the old car to new owner since the old car bearing regd no CH01X5766 stands transferred but dealer has norefundede 5000 plus Interest. So far inspite of my numberless visit to dealer.
