Next-Gen, Revamped Maruti Alto Will Launch In This Month: New Features, USPs, Price & More!
As per the newest reports coming in, Suzuki is now working on the next generation of Alto small hatchback and the car is all set to make an entry into the market at the end of this year.
To find out about the specifications and features of the next generation Suzuki Alto, read on!
Maruti Suzuki Alto Next Generation To Be Based On Heartect Platform
The next generation Alto will be based on the Heartect platform, which is also the inspiration for several recent models, such as Baleno, Wagon R, S-Cross, Ertiga, XL6, S-Presso and Ignis in India
This is the first time that the next generation Alto is undergoing a full model change in seven years in select markets like Japan. Also, in Japan, the upcoming Alto will be employing the same powertrain that is being used under the bonnet of the Hustler.
As per the Kei car regulations, the Hustler is powered by a 660 cc petrol engine, which produces around 49 hp and 59 Nm in its naturally aspirated format and 64 hp/100 Nm in the turbocharged variant. The second one will be used in Alto Works, thus ensuring an improved torque, responsiveness, and fuel economy which is the result of the longer engine stroke. The car will reportedly be pitted against Honda N-One RS.
Features and Launch Of The Next Generation Maruti Suzuki Alto
Coming to the dimensions of the car, the Suzuki Alto Works will be 3395 mm in length, 1475 mm in width, a height of 1500 mm, and a wheelbase of 2465 mm. Also, the current 796 cc F8D three cylinder petrol would be retained and will be producing 47 bhp at 6000 rpm and 69 Nm at 3500 rpm. The new car will also be available in a CNG powered variant, therefore offering the option of increased mileage.
The car’s interior is expected to come improved with bigger proportions and more advanced features as well.
The next gen Maruti Suzuki Alto is expected to launch sometime next year. The second generation has been in the market from 2012, and the upgrade has come after a long decade.
There is a possibility that Maruti Suzuki will launch new S-CNG versions and also focus on introducing the hybrids prior to the switch to the electrified models in the near future.
