Maruti Alto-K10 Launched!!

New Suzuki Alto at the 2008 Paris Motor Show

Maruti Suzuki launched another version of Brand Alto, equipped with a K-series, 998 cc engine. This version, called 'Alto-K10', comes with improved suspension, new cable-type transmission, superior brake system and more knee-room for rear seat passengers.
The existing Alto clocks average sales of over 20,000 units every month. Maruti Suzuki expects the Alto-K10 to bring in additional customers.
On the occasion of Alto-K10 launch, Mr. Shinzo Nakanishi, Managing Director and CEO, Maruti Suzuki India, said “The Alto's package of performance, fuel efficiency and attractive cost of ownership have together made it India's mos t popular car. The Alto-K10 will take this forward. There are a growing number of first time buyers who seek more power, performance and attitude in their car, without having to stretch all the way to buy a higher segment car. The Alto-K10 is meant for them”.
