The country’s largest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki is known for its affordable vehicles. This is the reason why no matter how much competition has increased in the market. But taking Maruti off the No. 1 position doesn’t seem to matter to anyone. To improve its market share, Maruti is now preparing to bring another affordable vehicle. When this vehicle comes into the market, it will surely strengthen Maruti’s stake once again. So what is this car and what will be its price, let’s know…
Maruti Alto New Generation
This upcoming car of Maruti is none other than Alto, one of its best selling vehicles. Surprised to hear that… but it is true. Maruti is going to bring new Alto. According to a report by MotorOctane, you will get to see many changes in the pristine Alto because this will not be a facelift model but a new generation model. The Alto used to lag behind other entry-level vehicles in terms of looks, styling and features. But the company is now in the process of removing this tag from the Alto.
In the new-generation Alto, you will get to see the trend of the current model, but its edges will now be smoother than before. The new front grille of the vehicle will change its front look. Also, LED DRLs and headlamps will get new in the new Alto. At the same time, the option of alloy wheels can also be seen in the top variants. Apart from this, the tail lamp will be redesigned.
Alto is an entry-level car. In such a situation, we cannot expect much in its interior. But still, now many features like a multi-functional steering wheel, newly designed AC vents, power windows in all four doors, dual airbags, infotainment system, ABS-EBD can be seen.
Safety and Engine
At the same time, to further improve the car’s safety, the new Alto can also be built on the Heartect platform. All-new Maruti vehicles, including the S-Presso, are being built on this platform. Along with this, a 1000 cc engine option can also be seen in Alto like S-Presso because the company is already giving this option in S-Presso.
Price and launch
It was being said that the new Alto will be launched this year. But due to the Corona epidemic, the company can launch it between April and July next year. The price of the car will be specially taken care of because Alto is an entry-level car. In such a situation, its price cannot be kept very high. Currently, the on-road price of Alto in Mumbai is between Rs 3.56 lakh and Rs 5.32 lakh, and the starting price of the new model is also expected to be around Rs 4 lakh.
