India’s largest selling car – Maruti Alto has been facing stiff competition from the likes of Renault Kwid and Datsun Redi Go. In order to maintain its supremacy in the entry-level hatch segment, MSI is planning to launch the next generation Alto in the country. The next model is likely to have a contemporary and crossover-ish design.
The next generation Alto is likely to retain the existing 0.8-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine. This engine might be tuned to extract more power and fuel efficiency. Transmission options could include a 5-speed manual and an automated manual transmission (AMT).
