Congrats on the pocket rocket, Drjumbo. I'm a huge fan of the Alto K10 because the car proves, you don't need to spend a lot of money to have a lot of fun. The few times that I've driven a K10, I really enjoyed pushing her to the limit. In fact, I think its more fun to drive than some 10 lakh rupee sedans!

Unique review with Shimla-centric comments . Drive safe!

congratulations on the k10, interior console matches and its lights match well with the music system. i have the older alto lxi and was thinking of replacing mine with the new k10 however i cannot digest the odd rear look of the k10 i think the older car is ok but the new rear couldve been so much better. i think the front matured look and the rear dont gell with each other.

YOU ARE RIGHT DUDE-EVEN I DON'T FIND IT GOOD-THE NUMBER PLATE SHOULD HAVE BEEN LEFT ON THE BUMPER ITSELF.the hatch is too crowded now.

Awefully there was this website which showed the new swift with plate on the hatch-it looked disgusting as well!
but once you drive those 21 horses extra and 28 nm of extra torque-trust me you would fall in love with her and team bhp stickers make anything look HOT-THEY ARE ALWAYS THERE!!!

haha, well said my friend, yes more horses are always welcome, which fool will ask for lesser horses. i dont know i am currently evaluating my options about my alto, its given my fabulous service for the last 8 years never breaking down on me so i am not yet sure of what to do. if i get a k10 i will keep you posted. drive safe and good wishes once again with the car.

ps. i pray that maruti removes the rattly nature of its cars, i love maruti but i hate it for its rattles. i know they can remove them but they just love them too much to not remove them.

Nice rims man. Great choice you have. The car looks beautiful on those rims.

I would strongly recommend you to get a smaller no plate. IMO, the current one spoils the look.

BACK after a long time!!!exams..
completed 2500 kms on my k10

Now i have stopped pampering her and started PUSHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did 135kmph with 4 guys and ac on shimla chd highway-she was ready for more only if the VOLVO in front of me hadn't scared the adrenaline out of me!!
it was amazing no vibrations and no nervous handling-breaking part was not good although..

Seen this car Chandigarh-Shimla Highway this friday afternoon, before Solan city.
I'm happy because for the first time i've spotted a car with team-bhp stickers on it, on-road except that of Gold-coloured Honda City i-VTEC in my campus.
