The update coming to the K10 this Diwali would be a major one. The upholstery is likely to change and the audio system would receive an update. The beige interior from the Alto 800 could be used on the facelift.

The K10 is a variant of the usual Alto that runs on the 1-litre K-Series engine that produces 68PS @ 6,200rpm and a maximum torque of 90Nm @ 3,500 rpm.

Paired to a newly developed cable-type transmission, its fuel efficiency is rated at 20.2 km per litre.

Power steering, remote boot-lid opener, a turning radius of 4.6m and a ground clearance of 160mm are other features that helped build up a case for itself.

Also worth noting is the K10′s export base, which spreads the Alto brand’s footprint across Asia, Africa and South America.
