The second generation K10, which is based on the Alto 800’s body, will be exported to markets in Latin America, Africa and Middle East, according to the company’s executive director for engineering, C V Raman. The exports are expected to start in a couple of months.

The new Alto K10 is powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder K-Series engine which produces 68 PS (67.04 bhp) and 90 Nm of torque, and accelerates from 0-60 km/h in 5.3 seconds. A 5-speed manual and automated manual transmission are offered, and the latter is expected by the company to account for 20 percent of sales.
