For starters, the new K10 will now have revised styling that will not only help it look premium, but on top of that will also feature modern styling cues, similar to what we see with the new Celerio. The Alto K10 will now be based on the brand’s popular Heartect platform and will be significantly larger than the Alto 800.

The Alto 800, on the other hand, will continue to offer a subtle and elegant design while its compact dimensions will make it an excellent city car. A detailed specification comparison is given below in the table:

This engine will be offered with either a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox, while a CNG version could also be introduced post-launch. The Alto 800, however, gets a smaller 796cc petrol engine that produces 47bhp and 69Nm of peak torque. This engine is only available with a 5-speed manual gearbox, while buyers can also opt for an optional 40 hp CNG powertrain.

The new Maruti Alto K10 will offer significantly more features compared to the Alto 800 and is expected to come with features such as a large SmartPlay touchscreen infotainment system, power windows, power-operated ORVMs, controls steering wheel, a new instrument console, etc. The Alto 800 is also available with all the necessary features, but lacks the modern bells and whistles.
