Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has finally launched the new generation Alto K10 in the domestic market and is priced at Rs. 3.99 lakh for the base STD trim and it goes all the way up to Rs. 5.83 lakh for the range-topping model (both prices, ex-showroom New Delhi). The new Alto K10 is retailed in STD, LXI, VXI and VXI+ variants and six colour schemes are available.
The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 comes with AMT transmission in the VXI and VXI+ trims with a claimed fuel economy of close to 25 kmpl. The K10 nameplate has made a comeback after more than two years of absence and it gets a thoroughly redesigned exterior and interior alongside a new 1.0-litre three-cylinder K10C petrol engine with idle start/stop technology.

It is paired with a five-speed manual transmission as standard or a five-speed AMT as an option. It sits on the lightweight Heartect platform as the latest crop of small Maruti Suzuki cars and has larger proportions and a bigger bootspace compared to the Alto 800.
