Maruti Suzuki India Ltd on Thursday launched the fourth generation model of its popular entry-level hatchback car Alto at a starting price of Rs 3,90,000.

The new Alto K10 is different from its predecessor, as it is based on Maruti’s Heartect platform. Drawing inspiration from Maruti’s next-generation model of Celerio, launched earlier this year, the new Alto K10 gets oval-shaped headlamps, a rear somewhat similar to Celerio, the hexagonal pattern on the grille, and smooth body lines.

Much work has also been done on interiors as it is equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen infotech system that supports Android and Apple car-play and steering mounted controls.

The new model, with a ground clearance of 160 mm, is powered by an updated K-Series 1.0-litre engine with dual jet technology which is 67 bhp and produces 89 nm of peak torque and is operated by both 5-speed manual and automatic transmission (AGS).
