As we reported you earlier, Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest automajor, would launch the Alto K10 facelift in the first week of next month; now, the interior images as well as the variants of the new Alto K10 have been revealed. The company has also officially announced that the facelift version would also feature an optional AMT gearbox with the top-end variant.
Talking about the interior of the upcoming Alto K10 facelift, it has nothing to do with its predecessor as the company designers have come-up with an all-new interior. The centre console is done in piano-black finish, while the dual-tone dashboard in black finish at the top and beige at the bottom appears quite premium and up-market. The A/C controls, beneath the Music System, flaunt modern rotary dials. The 3-spoke steering wheel is also a new one and the instrument cluster is also revised, while including orange highlights. In the picture, the AMT gear-lever is quite identical to the one seen in Celerio. The front seats are scooped up to accommodate better knee room for the rear seat occupants.
New Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 would be launched in both petrol and CNG guise across four trims - LX, LXi, VXi and VXi(O). The LX trim, being the entry-level, doesn't get much of the comfort features, albeit boasting manual AC with heating function, front and rear integrated headrests, and fabric upholstery as standard features. On safety front, it has seatbelts only for the protection of occupants. Multiple basic features such as power steering and windows are missing from this variant. Talking about the LXi grade, it would come loaded with all the features that we have seen on the LX trim and in addition, it will be also comprising of power steering, a tailgate opener, child-lock for the rear doors and internally-adjustable right wing mirror.
The top-end trim VXi will be featuring a Audio/CD/FM/AM player with 2 speakers and USB compatibility. In addition, it gets all the bells and whistles in form of central locking, front power windows, buzzer warning for the headlamps, tachometer in the instrument cluster, digital clock, rear parcel tray and wheel covers. The VXi (O) trim, carrying forward all the features of VXi trim, has multiple optional safety features in form of driver airbag, front fog lamps and keyless entry. It is also being speculated that the new Alto K10 would be around 15% more fuel efficient than the current one. However, it would be known once it is officially launched.
