Besides that a CNG variant is expected to join the fray later.
In the meantime, the existing 796 cc three-pot petrol engine will continue to develop 48 hp and 69 Nm.

When it comes to Alto, it has been an all-time best-seller for the Indo-Japanese brand.
Not only that, it has been gracing the market for more than two decades.
