Is the tachometer is in RITZ style, separately mounted on dash bord? Or it is placed in side of speedo?

No, I'm glad that no such external contraptions are on the K10 like on the Ritz. I somehow never liked the oddly protruding tachometer in the Ritz or A-Star.

The K10's tacho (VXI) is located to the left of the speedometer inside the instrument console.

I have never felt so excited about a new car launch. And to think this is a car at the lowest segment. I don't care whether this becomes a hit or not, but all I know is "I want one".

+1 to that. The Alto K10 seems to be the most unexpected and the most important launch from MSIL this year.

@ashutoshb: Yes, the front-only PW thing was mentioned earlier on in this thread.

The only thing I want to know is the truth about Vxi being 43kgs heavier than Lxi, which I sincerely hope is not the case.

I am looking forward to this car, it should be quite sprightly to drive. After the 5 speed 800, this can be a Maruti offering great performance and a low price.

The K10 Alto will be considered the worthy successor for the old zen.
Didn't like the rear taillight design though.

From the ad snaps it looks like it has alloys... I have almost decided I am booking one, just have to think if I keep my current one(Alto Lxi) or sale it:(, it never gave me any kind of trouble, I never felt under powered other than driving in TBHP meets where every else had a powerfull car and waited for me me in different meeting points for +/- 5to 10 mins..

Esteem used to come with a 1000 cc engine. Now little Alto has it. it much be very responsive to drive.
This IS GOING TO BE A HIT. Little Alto is going to do what Ritz failed to do for Maruti.

Way to go Maruti.
