SCOOP: All-new 2014 Maruti Alto k10 spy shots EDIT: Now launched

Recommended Posts

Spied recently is the all-new Maruti Suzuki Alto k10 which seems to be a major upgrade to powerful version of Alto i.e k10 since it was being launched few years ago. Hence featuring extensive all-round changes.

Since Maruti Suzuki have already worked heavily on Alto(Alto platform) for its latest iteration i.e Alto 800 to retain both cost & performance(fuel efficiency primarily) benefits and somehow struck the right balance expect looks which have gone under heavy scalpel treatment to look it more conservative, for two reasons -One is cost, obviously and another is a replacement option to decades old Maruti 800 as it was about to being phased out pan-India at the time of its launch.

So, i expect this All-new 2014 Alto k10 to be heavily based on customer feedback reaction as well as to NCAP crash test results, which declared few of India's best seller cars being highly unsafe for Drive+passenger safety with off course increasing competition like Datsun GO & Hyundai EON 1.0 kappa VTVT.

Source spy pics indicate the car seems to be featuring All-new front which looks more alike to Celerio or even more smarter with slim-headlamps & fog-lamps, reason being the car is lower than Celerio in profile & sits relatively lower. Side lines are again similar to both Alto 800 & Celerio with strong central crease blending smoothly into re-designed tail-gate including redesigned tail-lamps with differently arranged light elements than onto which the car seems to be based. More or less which seems to be Celerio than Alto800 itself, reason being it looks longer, l'll bit wider & off course it's being powered with powerful 1.0litre k-series k10 engine which needs stronger bodyshell for both handling high-speeds & to confirm to crash safety norms.

Interiors still remains unrevealed, however it seems that Driver Airbag along with other convenience goodies like Bluetooth telephony on smart multimedia music system can be expected on higher variants.

With increasing customer expectations & rising competition, Maruti Suzuki this time seems to be offering even more for the segment, in which they rules already. Lets wait for another round of spy shots or launch details.

ACI article on this mentions Alto-800 facelift.

But I think it's Alto K10 facelift in the works, to give a tougher fight to Eon which has just received 1L engine option.

This one pretty much looks like the Celerio. And i guess this is the in house diesel plant they're testing.

The new Celerio will be coming with a 800cc 2 cyl diesel engine. NVH levels would be an interesting part with this engine.

This one looks similar to the Alto 800.

So, Maruti's not gonna give it up. Hyundai launches a 1.0L and now Maruti too seems to be working for the same. Interesting this! :rolleyes:

The Alto shown in the spy shots posted above by @freakyskull, courtesy gaadiwaadi.com seems to be regular Alto 800, without much noticeable differences, atleast i won't make out much, if anyone does, please share.

I don't think its upcoming facelift or k10 Alto, its engine bay is still small which can accomodate 800cc engine only, not 1.0 litre k10. However i can't rule out the possibility that this car might sport Maruti Suzuki's upcoming 800cc Diesel engine for testing purposes.

Nice walkaround of the Alto Turbo RS here! Definitely think this would make a good special edition variant here in India, what do you think?
