The current Alto K10 (pictured) has sold over 4.3 lakh units in four years.

The car was developed by Maruti’s engineers along with their counterparts from Suzuki Motor in Japan, at a cost of INR 200 crores.

The new K10 will be powered by the same 1.0-liter three-cylinder K-Series engine which produces 68 PS (67.04 bhp) and 90 Nm of torque. A 5-speed manual or automated manual transmission (AMT) can be chosen to pair with it.

It delivers an ARAI certified 24.07 km/l (for MT and AMT), which is an improvement over the earlier model’s 20.92 km/l. The K10 will also be available with a CNG option which will deliver 32.26 km/kg. A total of six variants will be available, but the AMT is reserved only for the top-end trim.
