Take a look at this modified Maruti Alto that draws inspiration from a digital rendering. Isn't it an example of rendering to real-life avatar transition?
When the Maruti Suzuki Alto succeeded the 800 to become the highest-selling vehicle in India, the latter’s streak of 21 years at the top finally came to an end. The Alto quickly became a big seller after launch, as consumers loved its affordable pricing, more modern looks, fuel-efficient engines, and Maruti peerless aftersales service. The Alto has gone through multiple generations since the first model arrived, and it also has a large accessories aftermarket scene in India. Today we came across this render of a modified Alto 800 and a picture of this Alto K10 which look remarkably similar.
The pictures have been uploaded by kailas_m_chandrashekhar and emperorcaressentials over on Instagram. The first one is a rendering of a Maruti Alto 800 which gets a few but noticeable changes. The stock front-end has been replaced with a bumper which gets a bigger front grille and new air intakes that flank the grille. There are new LED DRLs on the bumper while new projector headlamps and DRLs have been fitted as well. Over to the side, you’ll notice the lowered suspension, new multi-spoke white alloy wheels, and a roof-box has been added. The rear remains largely stock but it does get new LED taillights and a new stoplight in the bumper.
Now to the real-life version, it is a Maruti Alto K10 model which looks really similar to the render, barring the fact that they are two different models. Like the render, it is a white model and has a roof box fitted to it. The rims are a multi-spoke design but they’re black instead of white. The Alto K10’s ride height has been lowered as well.
The Maruti Alto 800 is powered by an 800 cc 4-cylinder petrol engine which makes 49 PS/68 Nm of peak power and torque figures. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual. There’s a factory-fitted CNG option as well which makes lesser power and torque figures. Prices for the Alto 800 range from Rs 2.94 lakh – Rs 4.36 lakh, ex-showroom. Talking of the Alto K10, it isn't on sale anymore. It was offered with a 1.0L K-series 3-pot petrol motor that belted out 67 PS of peak power and 90 Nm of max torque.
