Here’s an image of Alto K10, which gets new aftermarket alloy wheels and lowered springs. The Maruti hatchback was discontinued in our market in 2020.
Last year, India’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki discontinued the Alto K10 in India because of the new BS6 emission norms. Maruti Alto K10 was the more potent version of the regular Alto 800. Right now, the carmaker only offers the Alto 800 in our market. The Alto K10 was also popular among the modifiers because it was easy and cheap to customize. Enthusiasts around India modify the Maruti hatchback to make it look more eye-catching. Here is a recent image of the Maruti Alto K10, which gets subtle customizations and looks very sporty.
The picture of this Alto K10 has been uploaded by an Instagram page named modified_online. The regular model of the hatchback was offered with 13-inch steel wheels. The Maruti hatchback you see here employs sporty looking 15-inch alloy wheels. The aftermarket alloy wheels are shod with 185/45/15 section rubber. These are the same rims, which were offered with the second-gen Swift. It also gets lowered custom rims, which makes the hatchback look more imposing, and it will reduce the body roll while doing high speeds on tight corners. The modifier has also removed all the chrome inserts from the exteriors of the car to give it a more rugged look. Other than this, no customizations have been done on the hatchback. The overall cost of all these modifications is not known.
