Maruti Alto K10 - Best Budget Car With Automatic Option
If you go on listing out the number one rated compact hatchbacks of all times, Maruti Alto would be on the top of the list. Maruti Alto K10 is the powerful version of the popular Alto. Currently, I own the one and for the last 3 years, it is running perfectly without any problems. I wanted to purchase an automatic car but the price factor was an issue, after searching for a month I came across Alto K10 which is, of course, a budget car along with AT option which was exactly what I was finding. Along with affordable price, one gets reliability, low maintenance cost with the best service, great mileage and good resale value. Alto K10 is based on the Alto 800s body shell. The front radiator grille is thicker with chrome and has pulled back headlamps. Side gets the boxy profile while the rear features body coloured bumpers and small tail lamps.
Interiors of the Maruti Alto K10 are excellent when it comes to designing. New Alto comes with inbuilt 2-DIN music system along with AUX-In and USB. The cabin is spacious with extra knee room while the boot capacity is about 177L which is fine for carrying luggage. Features include electric power steering wheel, power operated front windows, air conditioner and central locking. In terms of safety, manufacturer has to make some improvements. Airbags are only available with AMT variants while ABS has not been included in any of the trims. That makes passenger safety more questionable. Alto K10 sources its power from 1.0L K-Next petrol mill that can generate the output of 67bhp and maximum torque of 90Nm. Its top-spec model is now being offered with an automated manual transmission that now comes with improved fuel efficiency. So, Alto K10 is the best value for money car in its segment while the convenience of automatic gearbox makes the car even more desirable. At a starting price of Rs. 3.3 lakh, it?s one of the best city hatchbacks.
