Maruti Alto K10, WagonR, A-Star head to Indonesia
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

Now that Maruti Suzuki has captured the Indian scenario, it is turning it eyes on Indonesia which is another booming auto market. The Jakarta Post is reporting that Suzuki’s Indonesian subsidiary – Suzuki Indomobil Sales (SIS) will import Alto K 10, Wagon R and A-Star from for its domestic market this year.
The cars will keep their 998cc, 3-cylinder K series engines. However, it is not clear whether they will be imported in a CKD or a CBU format.
The cars will be on display during the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) in July this year post which each car will be launched in the coming months.
