The 2019 Maruti Suzuki Alto is in the pipeline to reach our shores in late 2019 with larger size and modern HEARTECT architecture.
Concerning the greater response on the big-sized vehicles among the Indian gearheads, Maruti Suzuki plans to introduce a new version of Alto with grown dimensions and strengthened body structure thanks to the modern HEARTECT architecture. As per the latest spy shots surfaced online some days ago, the hatchback will get an SUV-like silhouette along with updates on essential safety features.
The 2019 Maruti Alto will be inspired by the Future S concept debuted at 2018 Auto Expo
Set to replace the ageing Maruti WagonR in the Indian market, the all-new Maruti Suzuki Alto will undergo an intensive revision from outside to inside so as to comply with the upcoming BNVSAP (Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program) which will come into effect in India soon this year. It is expected to be a bigger and more spacious car as compared to the current generation in the portfolio that is attributable to the utilization of the modern HEARTECT platform which also underpins a number of Maruti cars like the Ertiga, Baleno, Swift, Dzire and all-new WagonR.
The upcoming Maruti Alto will get an SUV-like appearance
Breaking all rumours that the new Heartect architecture is exclusive for premium cars only, Maruti Suzuki will come to introduce a new Alto with high-end materials, stronger body structure and rigidity as well as a lighter curb weight thanks to this underpinning. Having said that, the new platform also results in the increments in the overall dimensions of the car that make its way to attain an SUV-like styling aesthetics.
The engine-transmission combination of the new Maruti Alto is still under the wraps. However, it is anticipated to cling to the same powertrain system as available in the current version. The car will still source the power from the 800cc and 1.0-litre gasoline burners combined with a 5-speed manual and AMT unit. Prices of the vehicle are expected to be marginally increased due to the higher costs distributed on the platform and feature revisions.
