New Maruti Suzuki Alto K10: exterior details

At the front, the new Alto K10 sports a rounded design with sweptback headlamps and a hexagonal pattern on the grille. Previously leaked images suggest that Maruti Suzuki may offer a wide variety of accessories, as is the case with other models in the line-up.

In profile, the new Alto K10 has a traditional glasshouse and a prominent shoulder line, and, like the Celerio, will also feature lift-up door handles. It may also get alloy wheels as a dealer-level accessory. The rear end is very similar to the Celerio at first glance, however, the design details of the tail-lights, rear hatch and bumpers differentiate the two.

Based on Maruti Suzuki’s Heartect platform, the new Alto K10 will get the carmaker’s 67hp, 1.0-litre K10C petrol engine that was recently added to the updated S-Presso. The current 48hp, 0.8-litre engine will be reserved for the existing Alto 800 for the time being. When launched, the Alto K10 will only rival the Renault Kwid.
