Maruti Alto 800 vs k10: Maruti Suzuki is known to have manufactured some of the most selling small hatchbacks in India. The company has ruled the Indian market in this category for quite some time. It is one of the few OEMs still producing compact hatchbacks. Two of the best selling cars of Maruti – 800 and K10 – will yet again tempt the buyers.
The Alto K10 is making a reappearance in a brand-new guise, and as before, it will be made available alongside the Alto 800, which is the entry-level model. The new K10 appears to be larger and has an exterior style that is reminiscent to the Celerio based on prior spy shots.
The base Maruti hatchback, which was recently spotted without any disguise, is prepared for a generational overhaul. We now know that August 18 will be the official market debut of the all-new Alto.
Similar to the S-Presso and the new Celerio, the 2022 Alto is anticipated to be built on the Heartect platform. This entry-level hatchback will therefore be larger than the outgoing model, as seen in the spy photos as well. We have only been able to see the side and rear profiles, which showed some styling that was influenced by the Celerio. That’s advantageous because it gives the car a more contemporary and upscale appearance.
