2021 Maruti Suzuki Alto: Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has been selling Alto since September 2000. The first model was built on the fifth-generation Japanese Alto but the second generation which was available in October 2012 was made in India. Alto has been one of the most used and successful cars in the domestic car market.
Currently, Alto is available between Rs. 2.99 lakh and Rs. 4.87 lakh and has remained the best seller for years. STD, LXi, VXi, and VXi Plus trims are some models available for the consumers. The car is available in both petrol and CNG. However, in April 2020 Maruti Suzuki discontinued the K10 version of the Alto because of stringent BSVI emission standards.
It had a 1.0-litre K10B petrol engine that produced 90 Nm of peak torque and 67 bhp maximum power paired with a five-speed MT. Currently, Maruti Suzuki is working on new models for a better reach and it is expected to include the next generation Alto.
