Maruti Suzuki is on a roll this year. After bringing new models like the Baleno, Brezza, XL6 and others, the brand will now focus on its most-affordable offering – the Alto. Maruti Suzuki is expected to announce the prices of the all-new Alto by the end of this month. While we have seen the car testing under a heavy camouflage multiple times, here is a new set of pictures that fully reveals the upcoming hatchback.
The all-new Alto K10 will be available in 12 variants. The variants will start from STD with the top-end variant being the VXI+(O). There will be a slew of optional variants available with the new Alto.
The new-generation model will utilise the Heartect modular platform. The change in the platform also translates into bigger dimensions for the car. The same platform also underpins cars like the S-Presso, Celerio, Baleno, Ignis and the Ertiga in the Indian market.
Maruti Suzuki has completely redesigned the car. It will offer a much bigger grille than before with a clamshell bonnet and wraparound headlamps. The rear of the all-new Alto has changed too. It gets new tail lamps. The new Alto has become much more rounded than before.
The cabin of the all-new Alto has also been updated with new upholstery and it also gets a new dashboard design. Even the instrument cluster is new. Maruti Suzuki will offer a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system as standard with the all-new Alto.

The new upcoming version of the Maruti Suzuki Alto will be a slightly more modern car inside-out, with features like all four power windows and a touchscreen infotainment system to be offered in higher variants. While the current 0.8-litre three-cylinder 47 PS petrol engine will be retained in the new model, the new 1.0-litre three-cylinder 66 PS K10C petrol engine will be offered in the new model as well. With this, the Alto will once again get the option of a 1.0-litre engine, which was offered in the previous generations of the car with the Alto K10 version.
While a 5-speed manual gearbox will be offered as standard with both the engine options, a 5-speed AMT will be offered as an option for the 1.0-litre engine option. Expect the new Alto to hold the title of Maruti Suzuki’s most affordable car, as it will continue to be positioned below the S-Presso in the carmaker’s portfolio.
