Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 CNG Launched At Rs 5.94 Lakh - 33.85km/kg Mileage

Indian carmaker Maruti Suzuki has launched the CNG-powered Alto K10 in India. The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 CNG is priced at Rs 5,94,500 (ex-showroom).

The Maruti Suzuki Alto CNG is only offered with the VXi variant of the entry-level hatchback. With the arrival of the new Alto K10 CNG, Maruti Suzuki is now offering CNG-powered versions of 13 of its cars in India.

The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 CNG is powered by Maruti Suzuki's K10C 1.0-litre Dual Jet, Dual VVT engine that comes paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 CNG delivers a mileage of 33.85kg/km.

In CNG guise, the K10C engine develops 55.9bhp at 5,300rpm and 82.1Nm of peak torque at 3,400rpm. This is down from the 64.3bhp and 89Nm the engine produces when on a pure petrol diet. The petrol-powered Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 delivers a mileage of 24.9km/l.

Speaking about the launch of the Alto K10 CNG, Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Officer, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said, "The Alto brand has been a symbol of how Maruti Suzuki has evolved in response to customers' shifting desires. The Alto continued to be the best-selling vehicle in the country for 16 consecutive years, and we are convinced that the launch of the S-CNG model will further strengthen its appeal, thanks to its stellar fuel-efficiency. I am delighted to share that we have sold more than 1 million S-CNG vehicles so far, which has helped save over 1 million tonnes of CO2 emissions. The addition of S-CNG to the popular Alto K10 will allow further widespread adoption of our environment-friendly technology. Our S-CNG range is specially designed, developed, and manufactured at our facilities to suit Indian driving conditions."

The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 is the second of the two Alto models to get Maruti's factory-fitted S-CNG kit which also features dual-interdependent ECUs. Other Maruti Suzuki cars fitted with the factory-fitted CNG kit include the S-Presso, WagonR, Eeco, Celerio, Swift, Dzire, Ertiga, Baleno, XL6, Super Carry and Tour S.
