Hi Swarit19, Thanks. By bouncy I mean stiff. With only one or two people on board, even the slightest road bump/undulation is felt clearly while driving and it unsettles the ride. The ride gets better with 4 people on board. This stiff ride can be attributed to the Alto K10's low kerb weight, narrow tires and suspension setup. But when the road is completely flat there is nothing to complain. I think switching to wider tires is the easiest way to improve the ride.

Rightly said. This power to weight is aided by the K10 engine's liner power delivery and free revving nature. This combination allows the engine to hit the redline in each gear without breaking a sweat and it helps in brisk acceleration and to attain impressive top speed which is appreciated by many.

Thanks Wanderlust89, Even I wish the car had better ride and handling and I have not excessively driven any other car in this segment to compare and comment. I thoroughly enjoyed driving my K10 in in the ghats section in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
