auto news desk, Maruti Suzuki has remained the first choice of Indian customers for many years. Most of the first time car buyers show their trust in this company. Last month, an affordable car from the company left behind all the popular cars including the Wagonr-Swift in terms of sales. It has been the best selling car in January. The car we are talking about is the Maruti Suzuki Alto.
Maruti Suzuki’s Alto has been the common man’s car in India for many years now. In January, the company has sold a total of 21,411 units of Alto. It is available in the market in two models- Alto 800 and Alto K10. Their prices start from Rs.3.53 lakh and Rs.3.99 lakh respectively. The company relaunched the Alto K10 last year. Since then, there has been a big jump in the sales of the Alto series.
The all-new Alto K10, launched last year, is sold in a total of 4 variants. These are Std (O), LXi, VXi, and VXi+. This car is available in 6 colors and the company has recently introduced its black color option. The top-end model of the Alto K10 costs Rs. 5.95 lakhs, ex-showroom. The Maruti Alto K10 has no competition in the Indian market, but it competes with the Renault Kwid in terms of pricing. It comes with a 1000cc petrol engine, which gives a mileage of over 33km with the CNG kit.
The affordable car comes loaded with luxury features, which include a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, keyless entry and a digitized instrument cluster. The hatchback also gets steering-mounted controls and manually adjustable ORVMs. In terms of safety, the car has dual airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors.
