Maruti Alto K10 review


One of the best selling and affordable small car series from the renowned stables of MSIL is the Maruti Alto K10 . It was launched quite a few years before and has been generating incredible business for the company in the Indian as well as a few international markets as well. It has recently undergone a major overhaul in terms of its exteriors, interiors and the features given in it. The automobile manufacturer is now selling the latest version in a total of six variants. This will be competing with the likes of Chevrolet Spark, Hyundai Eon and Datsun Go in its entry level segment. It comes with a warranty period of 2 years or 40,000 kilometers. This period can be further prolonged for another one or two years at an extra cost paid to the authorized dealers under the extended warranty scheme. These have been integrated with their age old and very reliable K-Series, 1.0-litre, petrol mill. But, there has been a surprising change to it in terms of its gear box. It is now has the dependable 5-speed manual, while there is an addition of automatic gear box as well. With this, it has become one of the most reasonably priced models in this segment. However, it is present in its VXi trim only. This is compliant with all the norms of the latest BS IV and its emission type is OBD II. This peppy motor has the ability to generate 67.1bhp at 6000rpm along with a maximum torque of 90NM at 3500rpm. When it runs on the CNG mode, it produces 58.2bhp in combination with a peak torque yield of 78NM. It is available with a factory fitted fuel kit to help reduce the cost of running. This is particularly being offered only with the LXi. Moving on to the insides, it is blessed with a charming two tone internal key color scheme. The cockpit has a smooth dashboard made of high quality plastic and is very smooth as well. This gives an swish look to the cabin. The AC vents have been reshaped, whose surround is now painted in silver color that adds to its classiness. Its center fascia and instrument panel too have been revised to give a fresh new appeal. Moreover, the VXi and VXi (O) also gets a 2-DIN music system with a piano black finish on its central console. There are also four speakers positioned inside to help distribute the sound equally all over. The external appearance has a combination of design cues that are taken from their other finest models, like the Alto 800 and Celerio. On the whole, the makers have done a splendid job with the outside cosmetics to make it attractive. Its wing shaped headlight cluster and a restyled radiator grille with a broad chrome strip. Below this the bumper is large with an air dam that helps in cooling the engine. It has a provision for incorporating a couple of fog lamps in it as well. The sides have been bestowed with pull type door handles and external wing mirrors in either black or body colored depending on the variant opted for by the customer. The wheel arches have been neatly carved out and are adorned with a set of 13-inch steel rims that have full wheel caps and a set of robust radial tyres. The rear profile has a clear lens based tail light cluster with side turn indicators and a well curved bumper. As far as its comfort and protective aspects are concerned, it gets all the regular components, which are expected to be in an entry level hatchback. The insides are decked up with functions like a proficient air conditioner with heater, sun visors, cup holders and internally adjustable outside mirrors as well. It is bestowed with numerous protective elements like a collapsible steering wheel, 3-point seat belts for all, and a headlight leveling device as well. The VXi (O) has a driver airbag and a pair of fog lamps in the bumper enhances the security quotient. However, the most important thing is its improved head space that gives an enjoyable traveling experience. Last but not the least, its braking and suspension mechanisms are also reliable and takes care of the bumps and potholes, which are always troublesome, while on the move. All these internal and exterior cosmetics put together has shaped this up into a prized possession, both for the firm as well as to its owner.

Maruti Alto K10 Exterior


The outer appearance is very well taken care of by the designers. Its every detail is neatly carved that augments its overall image. This is made to look splendid and hence many features are decorated onto its body. The frontage is furbished with a wide grille that gives a unique appeal. It is painted in chrome, and both the bumpers are layered in the body color, which enhances its appearance. The side profile is much more decent with its outside door handles in the body color. Also, the black B-pillars gives trendiness to its sides. The full wheel covers that are adorned to the steel wheels are very stylish and this is present in the VXi (O). And then, the VXi option has side moldings that makes it more stylish.

Exterior Measurements:

The dimensions of this hatchback is well designed in order to look peppy and at the same time to accommodate five people easily. It has a length of 3545mm. Its total width is of 1490mm without side molding and 1515mm including the side moldings. It stands at a good height measuring 1475mm. An impressive wheelbase of 2360mm facilitates spacious interiors. The front tread is 1295mm and the rear one is of 1290mm. And then, it has a ground clearance of 190mm.

Maruti Alto K10 Interior


Editor's take : The Alto is the bread-and-butter car for Maruti Suzuki and has very basic interiors. The space on the inside isn’t as good as the competition and the feel of the plastics isn’t that great. But the quality of the plastics is decent and things don’t fall apart.

The interiors of this cabin is a result of a great effort by the manufacturers and is furbished with efficient equipment. The seats are very well cushioned and gives great support. This compartment can take in four to five people. There is an instrument cluster embedded with various notifications. A tachometer too is offered for more assistance. The shift up indicator and gear shift digital display are . All these are bestowed with a dial type climate control. An accessory socket is provided in case of a need to charge electronic devices. There is a driver's seat belt warning lamp that is given in the instrument panel and there is a digital clock that is offered as well. The dashboard too is of good plastic and has a scratch proof finishing to it. All these have sun visors with a vanity mirror attached to the passenger visor. A courtesy lamp is also there as standard and this also has a three position facility to it. The console has generous storage capacity within it. And, this console holds two cup holders for convenience. Additionally, it includes a parcel tray that can capacitate handy stuff. The instrument panel on the dashboard is layered in piano black. This is decorated with garnish that makes it look more appealing. Both the VXi and VXi Option are decorated with silver accents to most of the elements. These include the side louvers, door armrest, console ring garnish, all the inside door handles and steering wheel. All these being layered with silver accents, the entire cabin is made to look very rich and bright.

Interior Comfort:

Quite a number of features are there in this model for the sake of providing convenience. To regulate the temperature inside, an air conditioning unit is integrated and there are vents well placed in the compartment to circulate the temperature well enough. Apart from the base trim, others have a responsive steering facility. The VXi and VXi option have an audio unit that can support various players. It comprises of a CD and an MP3 player and along with these, there is a USB port too made available. There is also a radio tuner that is supported by an antenna. Also, it has two speakers for the sake of distributing the sound. Keyless entry in the VXi is again a great advantage. A central door locking is provided and this can also be considered as a vital function apart from just convenience. These also have power windows to the front doors. These have a key-off reminder that is audible and a headlamp-on warning buzzer too. Excluding the LX, all others have a tailgate opener. The LX has an outside mirrors on the right hand side alone, whereas the mid range has an external mirror on right hand side that can be adjusted from inside. On the other hand, both the high range trims have internally adjustable external mirrors on both the sides.

Interior Measurements:

It is arranged in a way to provide maximum room between the seats so that it can have enough space between the shoulders. A generous wheelbase enabled to have legroom that avoids friction and gives great convenience to all the occupants. It has a fuel tank capacity of 35 litres. A boot compartment of 177 litres can be further increased by folding the last row seat.

Maruti Alto K10 Gear

Acceleration & Pick-Up

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

Those with manual transmission and automatic gear shift can breach the 60 Kmph mark in just 5.3 seconds. And those with CNG takes close to 7-8 seconds to reach this mark from scratch. A high speed of nearly 135 to 140 Kmph can be reached by it.

Maruti Alto K10 Engine

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

A 1.0-litre, K-series petrol drive train is equipped to it with a capacity to displace 998cc. It is equipped with three cylinders and twelve valves that are based on the double overhead camshaft valve configuration. This motor with MPFI returns a mileage of around 24.07 Kmpl on highways and 20 Kmpl in the cities. This has a capacity to produce a maximum 67.1bhp at 6000rpm and can generate a peak torque output of 90Nm at 3500rpm. The CNG version can deliver 32.26 Km/Kg. Under this mode, it can generate 58.2bhp at 6000rpm and 78Nm at 3500rpm. An efficient five speed manual transmission is offered for all except the VXi. It is paired with an auto gear shift.

Maruti Alto K10 Mileage


Editor's take : Despite being a 1.0-litre engine, the K10 returns a good fuel efficiency figure. This is thanks to the K-Series engine series from Maruti Suzuki.

It is equipped with a K10B motor and it is based on a multi point fuel injection system. This enables to return approximately 22 Kmpl under city conditions and on the highways this increases to nearly 24.07 Kmpl. Under CNG mode, it delivers a mileage of 32.26 Km/Kg and this is very resourceful and affordable.

Power of Maruti Alto K10

Editor's take : The Alto previously was powered by a 800cc engine, the new 1.0-litre engine has boosted its performance.

A petrol mill is incorporated in this carrying three cylinders and twelve valves that are based on double overhead camshaft valve configuration. It has a capacity to produce a maximum power of 67.1bhp at 6000rpm and can produce a peak torque output of 90Nm at 3500rpm. Whereas, when shifted to the other mode, it generates 58.2bhp in combination with 78Nm torque.

Maruti Alto K10 Accessories

Stereo & Accessories

It has an advanced audio unit that supports multiple players comprising a CD and an MP3 player. It also has USB port and a radio tuner with antenna fitted to the roof for its support. Two speakers are offered for the sake of sound distribution. The buyer can customize it with a few accessories based on the requirement. More features like fancy decals can be used to make the external appearance much attractive. Also, components like floor mats, leather upholstery, fabric inserts to inside doors and music system can be selected. Roof rails and roof spoilers can be included to improvise the style of the vehicle. Airbags and parking sensors can be integrated for improving the safety quotient.

You can now buy Maruti Alto K10 accessories online. Great discounts available.

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 series is equipped with an efficient braking and suspension mechanism too. The front wheels have a set of ventilated discs and its rear wheels are fixed with the drum brakes. The suspension comprises of gas filled McPherson strut to its front axle and a three link rigid axle type is used for the other one. The steering is highly responsive and has a minimum turning radius of 4.6 meters.

Maruti Alto K10 Safety and Security

Safety & Security

Editor's take : The Alto misses out on features like dual airbags, and at the moment only Alto 800 and Eon have these features as optional.

It has been equipped with a lot of significant components to ensure proper protection of its occupants as well as of the vehicle. The VXi (O) comes with a driver airbag that is a plus point. Besides this, it is built using lightweight steel including side impact protection beams and crumple zones. The LX has headlight leveling device, and three point seat belts for all with a 2-point fixed seat belt for rear center passenger. Then there is a high mounted third stop lamp as well affixed above the windscreen. It also has driver's seat belt warning lamp, a pair of fog lamps, a set of ventilated disc brakes and child locks increases the level of protection.


All these are adorned with a set of steel wheels that are of size 13 inches. These are covered with full wheel covers in the high range trims. These rims are covered with a set of radial tubeless tyres of size 155/65 R13.


1. Affordable price range that suits the masses.

2. Exterior cosmetics and internal aspects are refined.

3. Addition of the automatic gear box will certainly boost its sales.

4. Spare parts and maintenance cost is quite reasonable.

5. The mileage is at par with other contenders in this segment.



1. Absence of alloy wheels even in its top end version.

2. Lesser ground clearance can be a hindrance sometimes.

3. More security and convenient aspects can be added.

4. None of them have advanced braking mechanisms like ABS.

5. Very little luggage space.

  • Alto K10 VXi AMT - Very nice car
    By atul puntambekar| May 23, 2016 | 80 Views
    Very nice exterior. The exterior is kind of sporty and ORVMs and bumper are melded into the body color which gives a nice touch. Headlights and taillights are swankily built and add to the sportiness. The headlight really looks cool. However, Fog lamps are badly required in this. Very nice interiors, Navigation System Required for VXI. Looks wise i... Read Full Review
