Maruti Alto to get 1.0 L engine upgrade, likely to come at Price Rs. 3 lac
Maruti Alto will now be a much faster car with a whole new 1.0L K-Series engine as against 800cc engine. Maruti Suzuki has given Alto, its largest selling small car, an upgraded engine which makes it more powerful and fast.
The Maruti Alto is expected to touch Rs. 3 lac mark when it comes with the new 1.0 L engine variant. But analysts believe that this engine upgrade will give Alto a sales boost to the tune of about 50% given the fact that the existing Alto with 800 cc engine has not being phased out.
With an upgraded interior which were recently introduced by Maruti including head rests and new rear view mirrors in the Alto, an upgraded engine makes it a whole new vehicle that delivers a more pleasurable and comfortable driving experience.
Maruti Alto mileage with this new version of upgraded 1000cc K Series engine is 20 kmpl and is capable of producing 66 bhp and 90 NM torque making this already favorite small car much faster. The 1.0L K –Series engine is the same that comes with Maruti A-Star, Wagon R and Zen Estillo.
Maruti Suzuki is also contemplating the development of a stripped down avatar of the Alto and is trying to bring it to the price brackets of the Maruti 800 model. This is seen as company’s marketing strategy to compensate the loss owning to the withdrawal of Maruti 800 from major cities in India and retain its A1 market share.
