The Alto is also based on the legendary Maruti Suzuki 800, but this one comes with a better refined K10 engine. In India the K10 series was introduced in 2011 and all small hatches from Maruti now feature the K10 engine, which is better refined for performance and fuel economy.
The K10 is a step above the Alto 800 in every aspect, from design and styling to engine and performance. The K10 competes against other small entry hatches such as the Hyundai Eon and the Chevrolet Spark.

My first car is alto 2009 model and doing its job very well. The plus points of this car are great mileage, cheap maintenance cost, easy to drive through busy city roads and narrow pocket roads, power steering is so light, easily climbs any hill without hassle. Minus points are low pickup with A/C, poor ground clearance, rattling sound develops gradually from body. Fun to ride with two or three people but with five it is a burden.

Initially i was having 800 then I have purchased Alto Lxi BS4 in Sep 2010, car is having good fuel efficiency. I had traveled around 6000Kms & my car is giving me 19Kms/Ltr with AC on.While switching to AC on pick up goes down upto some extent but overall performance with AC on is good. AC is powerfull, cools cabin within 2 minutes. With 5 occupants & with AC on my car easily climb Pasarni ghat near Mahabaleshwar in 4th gear. Drawbacks:- following two things yet to develop by company. 1.B pillar & rear pillar trims not available. 2.Wheel covers for LXI BS4 model is not available.

Maruti Alto is the true value car. if you want to buy car in small segment only then you must go for alto rather than other cars. i have compared all the features of alto and wagon r. after that i can say no body and buy Wagonr after paying 1 lac more.
