Expert Review

Maruti Alto K10
Maruti Wagon R
INTERIOR:
Maruti Alto K10 interior
Ed's take:

Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 has gone another transformation for its second generation. The interior certainly looks update with its new dual colour dashboard and look premium enough for the segment.

The blue-black interior of the old car is replaced in the new Alto K10 with a black-beige colour scheme. New things on the inside include steering wheel, instrument cluster, piano finish music system with CD, USB and Aux-in support and silver accents. The seats are finished in beige upholstery.

Lx - The base variant Lx gets the 3-point ELR seatbelts for the front and rear, air conditioner, right hand side mirror and ventilated disc brakes to the front.

Lxi - The LXi variant adds child proof rear door locks, power steering, tailgate opener, internally adjustable right hand side mirror, chrome front grille and body coloured bumpers.

Vxi 5MT/AGS - The Vxi variants gets audio system with CD, MP3, USP and radio support, central door locking, front power windows, both side outside mirrors, tachometer, shift up indicator for the 5MT version and gear shift display for the AGS (Auto Gear Shift) version, accessory pocket, digital clock, rear parcel tray, piano black finish center garnish, blacked out B-pillar, full wheel covers and silver accents for side louvers, steering wheel, inside door handles, console, instrument cluster and door trim.

ZXi - The top end Zxi variant gets Driver side airbag, fog lamps, keyless entry, body colored door mirror and outside door handles and body side molding.

 

INTERIOR:
Ed's take:

The biggest USP in the new Wagon R is its space. The Wagon R has acres of space, while even the interiors look contemporary. The build quality and the feel of the plastics isn't that great, but you can't get any better for this price tag.

The new generation Wagon R might retain similar styling to the previous car on the outside, but the interiors are all new. The Wagon R gets a new instrument panel, with newly designed centre console. Even the instrument cluster gets a dash of orange on it, to make it look sporty. The new steering wheel is similar to that on many other Maruti Suzuki vehicles. This is far superior to the previous generation Wagon R, which did look and feel a generation older in its design.

The new Wagon R is a lot more spacious than the previous generation Wagon R. The first and the second rows, both have sufficient space. There is ample of headroom and legroom in the car in both the rows, and even the boot size is good one. The thigh support on the seats could have been better. The older car didn't have much room for the second row, especially the knee. Also, the new Wagon R is more wider than before, which means more people can sit comfortably in it.

LXi: The LXi is the base model on the Wagon R, like most of the Maruti Suzuki products. It gets power steering, front power windows, air-conditioning. The ORVMs are manually adjustable in this version and it also misses out on integrated audio system.

VXi: The Wagon R doesn't come with a ZXi model and hence, the VXi is the top of the line model. The Wagon R gets rear power windows, integrated audio system with speakers, tachometer, adjustable steering wheel, front and rear fog lamps and vanity mirror.

VXi with ABS : This version gets all the features of VXi with the inclusion of ABS.

ENGINE:

The new Alto K10 is powered by the same engine of the outgoing car. The engine has always felt sprightly and now gets better fuel efficiency too.

1.0-litre Petrol

The 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder engine makes 68 PS of maximum power and 90 Nm of peak torque. In CNG mode, the power and torque output changes to 59 PS and 78 Nm respectively. The new Alto K10 is available either with a 5-speed manual gearbox or AMT. The fuel efficiency has also been given a significant improvement. The new Alto K10 will return 24.07 km/l for both manual and AMT. In the CNG variant, Alto K10 comes with a fuel efficiency of 32.36 km/kg.

 

ENGINE:

The 1.0-litre K-Series engine is a tried and tested mill. It is a happy to revv three pot engine and it is peppier than the older four cylinder 1.1-litre that it replaced. Despite the minus of one-cylinder, there isn't much of vibration during ideal.

The engine on the Wagon R is the Suzuki's K-Series 1.0-litre mill that also powers the Estilo, A-Star and the Alto K10. This engine is highly refined with low levels of NVH (noise, vibration and harshness). The power delivery of this mill is linear and there is sufficient power, not just to potter around in city in a higher gear, but also to make those quick overtaking moves. The five-speed manual transmission on the Wagon R is a cable shift, and the shifts on this transmission are a bit rubbery, despite the throws being short. As per the ARAI cycle, the Wagon R returns a fuel economy of 18.9kmpl.

LPG/Duo:

The Wagon R also comes with a LPG option. Earlier, the company continued to sell the older design in the LPG variant. Now, it is being offered to the current generation. The LPG can be switched back to petrol as well. Hence it is called as Duo. The power from the LPG version is good and as the octane number of LPG is higher, the performance is as good as petrol.

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Maruti Alto K10 Dashbord

Thanks to its lightweight, the Alto K10 feels quick in the getaway and holds its speed on the roads quite well.

Gas filled McPherson struts to the front and 3-link rigid axle to the rear take up the suspension duties. The Alto K10 handles nice in city conditions and that is where it will do most of its duties.

 

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Maruti Wagon R Dashbord

The ride of the Wagon R fairly smooth and composed, as it is designed for this purpose. The handling isn't something that one can flaunt of.

Wagon R is the car for the masses, and hence its ride quality is fairly sorted. With the McPherson struts at the front and the trailing link at the rear, the Wagon R does well on bad roads. It is only the smaller size of the tyre that doesn't help much in absorbing the bumps.

The handling of the Wagon R is just decent. It is built for city driving and some amount of highway; hence the focus has been more on the ride. The new generation Wagon R being a bit wider has better handling than the previous car. The steering wheel is also light and easy to turn and park in the city.
