Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), country's largest automaker, with all guns blazing, is ready to launch the updated version of its small car Alto K10 and Swift hatchback. The facelifted avatar of Alto K10 would see a substantial mechanical upgrade in form of inclusion of AMT gearbox, while the Swift facelift would bear cosmetic upgrades only. The upgraded versions of both these cars are almost ready for dealer dispatch as seen in pictures clicked by our friends at Gaadi Waadi.

Maruti Alto K10 facelift would be offered with AMT unit, albeit with petrol guise only. The CNG fuel trim would be deprived of this gearbox and would continue using the 5-speed manual transmission. However, the 998cc, 3-pot engine from the pre-facelifted model will be retained with the new car and it produce 67 bhp of top power and 90Nm of maximum power. As for the cosmetic changes, the front fascia, headlamps and tail-lamp cluster of the current model would go under hammer. As far as pricing is concerned, it would cost the same but the AMT variant would cost approx. Rs. 40,000 more than the regular variants. Alto K10 facelift has already entered production at Maruti Suzuki’s Gurgaon plant and several thousand units can be seen in the image taken at Maruti Suzuki’s stockyard.

Coming to thw Swift hatchback, it would be an all cosmetic upgrade as there would be no mechanical changes whatsoever. The new Swift would flaunt LED daytime running lights, chromed door handles and reverse parking sensors. Inside the cabin, the facelift version of Maruti Swift is also expected to adorn Bluetooth connectivity, one touch driver’s side power window operation, power assist for wing mirror folding, start-stop button on the dashboard and a key less entry system. However, on the contrary, all of the aforementioned features would be limited to top-end trims - ZXi and ZDi. Mechanically, it would be powered by the existing 1.2 liter K-Series petrol motor and 1.3L Fiat-sourced MJD mill which will generate 85 bhp and 89 bhp, respectively. Both the powertrains would be mated to company's conventional 5-speed manual transmission. Pricing is expected to be the same, although a few thousands can be added to the current price. Like Alto K10 facelift, Maruti Swift facelift has also commenced production at company's Manesar production facility. Both these facelifts are ready for dealer dispatch and eyeing a Diwali slot for their much anticipated launch.
