New Delhi: Maruti has been massively profitable with its small automobiles and simply to strengthen the truth that it isn’t transferring away focus from hatchbacks to SUVs, the car-maker has introduced within the new Alto K10. Listed below are 10 issues we learnt from driving this new iteration of this small automobile.
1. Based mostly on the brand new Heartect platform, the Alto K10 is now longer and taller than the earlier mannequin and appears extra premium atleast in sync with the brand new design language which Maruti has for its small automobiles. Equipment additional allow it to have a sportier stance.
2. A giant shock is the area inside as due to an extended wheelbase, the brand new Alto K10 is rather more spacious and likewise much more than what it is footage counsel. That stated it’s best left as a 4 seater however legroom is surprisingly good. Boot area is 214l however once more it is not as dangerous you assume with a cleverly used boot area.
3. Inside design is a giant step up and whereas it clearly exhibits some indicators of price slicing, the all digital sprint and a touchscreen makes it way more trendy than the sooner cabin.
4. The latest Maruti infotainment system makes its approach right here and there are options like smartphone connectivity, steering controls and primary security tools. However there aren’t any rear energy home windows and never even a rear wash/wipe function.
5. The Dualjet 1.0 petrol is identical as within the S-Presso with 66 bhp and 89Nm. At simply 740kg, the K10 is fast and much more so within the handbook the place it has loads of efficiency together with a rev pleased nature. The handbook is slick with a lightweight clutch too.
6. We might have a look at the AMT model although it’s has been massively improved from earlier AMTs and mainly drives like an automated at low speeds with only a few jerks and creep operate is there too. The pause has been decreased between shifts too. We miss a hill maintain operate although for the AMT model.

10. The AMT carries a Rs 50,000 premium over the handbook with top-end AMT and handbook carry a price ticket of Rs 5.3 lakh and Rs 5.8 lakh therefore we predict the top-end AMT is a bit costly because it lacks some options which the Celerio or S-Presso have therefore decrease spec variants at Rs 5 lakh are literally higher worth and work as a primary automobile purchase.
