Its front facade has wing shaped headlight cluster and redesigned radiator grille with chrome strip. While the bumper is quite large with an air dam and has provision for incorporating fog lamps as well. However, its rear profile has clear lens taillight cluster and attractive bumper.

Editor's take : The acceleration produced by K10 is good and is as good as B+ hatchback.

 

This newly introduced Alto K10 has improved in terms of acceleration and pick up owing to its lightweight body shell. Both the manual and AMT versions have the ability to reach the 60 kmph speed mark in just 5.3 seconds, which is remarkable. However, the CNG variants takes about 7 to 8 seconds to does it from a standstill. This model series has the ability to attain a top speed of approximately 135 to 140 Kmph.

Engine and Performance

Editor's take : The K10 engine on the Alto is frugal and also has good performance. The K10 is a stonker of a performer and sprint runner

 

Powering this model series is the same 1.0-litre, K-series petrol engine, which is currently under the hood of its predecessor. It comprises of 3-cylinders and 12-valves based on double overhead camshaft valve configuration, which displaces 998cc.

Braking & Handling

Editor's take : The ride on the Alto is soft, yet most of the jolts filter into the cabin, due to the small tyre size. The handling of the Alto is good enough and even zipping through busy streets isn’t difficult.

 

This facelifted version is bestowed with a proficient braking mechanism, which works fine in any road condition. Its front wheels are fitted with high performance ventilated discs, while the rear ones have sturdy drum brakes. As far as its suspension is concerned, its front axle is paired with a gas filled McPherson Strut, while its rear axle is mated with a three link rigid axle type of suspension system. Furthermore, this model series is also incorporated with a highly responsive power assisted steering system, which supports a minimum turning radius of 4.6 meters.
