The 2015 Maruti Alto K10 will compete against the likes of Hyundai Eon 1.0L version and the Datsun Go. Mechanically, the hatchback is likely to remain unchanged. It will continue to be powered by the 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder K-Series engine that churns out a maximum power of 68PS at 6200rpm and 90Nm of torque at 3,500rpm. This engine will be coupled to a five-speed manual transmission and an AMT gearbox. The current generation model returns an excellent fuel economy of 20.92kmpl, while the AMT gearbox model is expected to offer better fuel efficiency than the manual version.
Maruti Suzuki India will also introduce the Ciaz sedan, Swift & Dzire facelift, WagonR diesel and compact SUV in the Indian car market.
