India Comes Home In An Alto!

By Nehal Sharma for Maruti Alto K10

The ‘want to go home for Diwali’ sign in this guy’s hands and him waiting for lift is what pops in my head every time I think of an Alto. It is unbelievable as to how many Altos Maruti has sold in the past decade. You could see an Alto everyday wherever you went. But everyone who owned an Alto ended up being a rash driver or maybe it was that the car had power but its size wasn’t right. Small packet and big spark.

But then the Alto got a facelift and what hit the market was the Alto K10. My brother in law bought this new Alto for his city commutes. I drive it occasionally and I like it. A small powerful car with simple good looks for a hatchback. The rather square elongated bonnet gives it a different look altogether. The black and beige interiors are soothing but the car isn’t spacious. You cannot seat more than four people in it unless absolutely necessary. But it gives good mileage and is easier to commute with in the city traffic. But never ever test its high speed capabilities. It gets jumpy and bouncy and rather uncomfortable. It’s a hatchback after all.

An okay car.

    Imperfect technology.

    Recently bout Alto automatic. Maruthi Suzuki's AMT technology is so imperfect, the automatic gear malfunctions. Often fails to recognize that it is the reverse gear . Had scary moments on highways with gear getting stuck!. I have driven automatic cars in USA for last 35 yrs. I have never seen a worst car like Alto, automatic. Read More

    New Maruti Alto K10

    Let me start with the looks. Lookwise, the old alto K10 is far far better than the new one. The new alto k10 is same as that of alto 800 in terms of looks, there is no fun. As the saying goes first impression is the last impression. For me the looks have already disappointed me. I dont want to Read More
