Maruti Alto could get 1.0 liter K-series engine next month


Naveen Nallappan,

Hi. I am Naveen, a very simple person with few needs and greats aspirations hoping to make a dent in the world I came to be in. I have always been extremely passionate about anything with wheels and wings and I seem to have a good appreciation of how cars work technically and how the car business works. As far as my love for cars go, more than power, speed and acceleration, I love how perfectly cars have come to fit into our lives and how beautiful moments in life are spent in cars. That’s my brief introduction. Stay tuned to IAB! Drive safe, advocate safe driving!

Maruti Suzuki is reportedly readying a new variant of the country’s best selling car, Alto. Maruti could soon be plonking in the 1.0 liter K-series engine into the Alto next month. The Alto which has the FC 800 cc engine currently develops only 46 hp and 62 Nm of torque. The 1.0 liter K-Series engine which was first introduced in the A-Star has been one of the best engines found on small cars in India. The new engine produces 66 hp and 90 Nm of torque.

The new engine is very responsive and is extremely smooth and is said to return about 20 kmpl. The 1.0 liter K-Series engine is currently used in the A-Star, Wagon R and the Zen Estilo.

The new engine could add spice to the Alto’s range and the new engine option would draw buyers from the Chevrolet Spark to the 1.0 liter Alto.

Maruti recently gave an update to the Alto by upgrading its engine to BS4 standards and giving new slightly freshened interiors, front seats with integrated head rests and new rear view mirrors.
