Maruti Suzuki Alto's more powerful K10 variants are gone. The carmaker had removed the model from its official website. Meanwhile, the Alto 800 will most likely continue. The removal of the Alto K10 will make room for the S-Presso, which is larger, more spacious, has higher ground clearance and better road presence than the Alto. It uses the same engine as the Alto K10 and isn't all that expensive than the Alto K10.
Simplifying the portfolio with fewer, better-performing models will also allow Maruti Suzuki to focus on managing its expenses by consolidating the lineup.
The Alto K10 hatchback has been around for about a decade. Its compact dimensions, light weight and sprightly engine gave it an amazing power- and torque-to-weight ratio, which made it a fun to drive car.
The 1.0-litre petrol engine of the K10 makes 68PS of power and 90Nm of torque. Just like the S-Presso, the Alto K10 was also available with a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT automatic.
