    The engine is a K10B unit borrowed from the WagonR. A 1 litre, 3 cylinder unit - it generates 68PS of power and 90Nm of torque. No, it doesn’t really sound like a lot - but that is until you factor in the weight of the car. The car doesn’t really weigh a lot, giving it a power-to-weight ratio that matches most B segment hatches. That 90Nm of torque is available at 3500rpm and the peak power is developed only at the redline i.e 6000rpm. What this means is you really have to have a leadfoot to make the K10 run fast. Now, this engine and gearbox combo is available on the bigger Celerio as well. But the gearbox is slightly better tuned on the Alto compared to the Celerio. As with all AMTs, the shifts are jerky - both up and down the gears. The gearbox is slightly hesitant to downshift at times as well, holding on to that higher gear, inadvertently lugging the car in the process. Thankfully, it does snap into its senses in a bit and downshifts. You can always avoid all of this hassle and shift on your own by slotting the gear lever into M. You now pull the lever back to upshift and push the lever forward to downshift. This is the exact opposite of what you might be used to, say, with a DSG box - but you’d adapt to it pretty easily. Even in manual, the vehicle will automatically downshift if it senses it is in too high a gear for the revvs or the speed. But it does let you take the revv needle all the way upto the redline. Speaking of the twisties, the steering is beautifully direct. It is a light unit and doesn’t weigh up much on the highways. While it doesn’t really inspire confidence at 100kph, it is a boon for those quick u-turns and parking is a cakewalk as well.

    It depends on your driving skills, same can be adjusted to suit your requirements but you have to compromise with fuel consumption.

    I think if you driving daily in city traffic then automatic is the best choice for you or if you are driving occasionally means not using daily then you go for manual it was the best option and you'll feel best

    Please go for a test ride sitting 4 persons in car, because rear seats have less space.
