Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 platform and design
The 2022 Alto K10 is based on the carmaker’s Heartect platform that uses steel to not only make the car safer but also help reduce noise and vibration. This is the same platform that underpins the Wagon R, Ertiga, and other Maruti Suzuki models.
As with the new platform, the new Alto K10 has also grown in dimensions. The car is longer and taller than its predecessor, allowing more leg and headroom. The new Alto measures 3,530 mm in length, 1,490 mm in width, and 1,520 mm high.
The new platform has also allowed Maruti Suzuki to give the Alto K10 a fresh design. The Alto borrows styling from the Celerio, ditching its angular lines for a more curvaceous look. The front grille design, along with the oval headlamps and taller stance gives the new K10 a more premium look.

The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 is powered by a 1.0-litre K-Series engine that makes 65 bhp and 89 Nm of torque. The engine is paired to a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox, which Maruti calls ‘AGS’.
