New Maruti Alto 2019 Spied Testing — Launch Expected In Late-2019

Maruti Suzuki recently rubbished rumours suggesting that their entry-level offering, the Alto hatchback would be discontinued in India. The company later confirmed that the hatchback would undergo 'heavy changes' ahead of the BS-VI emission norms implementation.

Now, the first spy pics of the new Maruti Alto has been leaked online. The spy pic showcases the rear-end of a completely camouflaged Alto, without revealing any major details.

Maruti Suzuki officials have already confirmed that a new Alto is in under development. The new Maruti Alto will replace the current model while also complying with the new Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assesment Program (BNVSAP). This translates to the next-generation Alto featuring an all-new platform and engine.

The Maruti Alto has been one of the most popular cars in the Indian market and has been on sale for quite a while now. It was one of the first products to be launched from Maruti Suzuki and has gone through a number of updates and iterations over the years.

It has also managed to retain the number one spot in the top-selling cars of India list continuously for the past couple of years. However, with the strict upcoming safety and emission regulations being implemented soon, Maruti Suzuki will have to provide major updates and changes to keep the car in the market.

The current generation Maruti Alto is offered in two variants - 800cc and 1.0-litre petrol offerings. The 800cc three-cylinder engine churns out 48bhp and 69Nm of torque. The 1.0-litre unit, on the other hand, produces 67bhp and 90Nm of torque. Both engines come mated to a standard five-speed manual gearbox. The larger 1.0-litre unit also comes with Maruti's optional AGS (Auto Gear Shift) transmission.
