Dsinz!!! I'm very sorry but your information seems to be just an assumption by your friend. Or even a hope which was transferred into words. Nothing wrong in it as many Alto owners do have the same hope and prayers for the same including me. I even started a thread (Suspension and engine Mods for Alto LX!) in the modification section for an engine upgrade and after some kind hammering from 'Psycho the GURU', just paused the idea for a while.

I dont see any change happening to Alto soon (Yes, unless Maruti turns to answering prayers of many like me).
The New Zen A.K.A MR Wagon will be launched here soon according to many sources and I expect it will do a nice job here unless Maruti goes skywards with the prices. Even though it's an old platform, it can be transformed into a good suitable vehicle for this country. And Suzuki is an expert in breathing life into old platforms. So apart from being a ditto MR Wagon which was sold 6years ago, we'll rather see a technologically advanced car which will easily compete with new Santro etc...
Again, I'm hoping, wishing and praying altogether. Please Maruti!!! Aamen!!!

I have read some time back that MUL is working towards reducing its platforms to 3 or 4, where as it is maintaining 7 platforms now; i.e. each model has its own different platform. MUL has been anticipating cost savings by having fewer platforms, which are used across multiple models.

I certainly read this in The Hindu, probably about 6 months back.
