Next-gen Maruti Alto Spied
The overall shape of the next generation Alto looks familiar.
A test mule of the next generation Alto has been caught testing for the first time.
The spy images suggest that the new Alto could retain its overall shape. In side profile, the car looks identical to the current model. The car appears to have new headlights and tail lamp clusters, while the side turn indicators are mounted on the front fenders.
The door handle for the rear hatch can be clearly seen in one of the images. The car also gets a redesigned rear bumper that has reflector strips on either end. The test car has a roof spoiler and is riding on steel wheels.
The Maruti Alto has been the no. 1 selling car in India for 16 consecutive years. Just last month, the carmaker achieved a milestone as sales crossed the 40-lakh-unit mark.
Currently, the Alto is powered by a BS6-compliant 796cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine that produces 47 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 69 Nm @ 3,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The car is also available with a factory-fitted CNG kit. On CNG, the engine output drops to 40 BHP and 60 Nm.
