Maruti Suzuki’s all New Alto may have a 660cc Variant.

Quote:
Expected to be rolled out by 2019-end, the A1 segment car will be priced equivalent to the current BS-IV compliant (800cc)variant at Rs. 2.5 lakh (approx.).
If speculation is to be believed, the low-spec variant can even deliver a mileage of 30km/l.
Quote:
media reports suggest that Maruti Suzuki has already started the development of the all-new Alto (internally codenamed Y1K) at its R&D centre at Rohtak, Haryana in association with its parent company Suzuki’s mother unit at Japan. Although, the platform development may still happen in Japan, the engineering, design and validation for the said model will be done by the Indian subsidiary keeping in mind the local tastes and conditions.

Suzuki will unveil the next-gen Alto in October 2019.

Rumour: Next-gen Maruti Alto to get 658cc turbo-petrol-20171030_123659.jpg

The Japanese carmaker plans to coordinate the next-gen model’s unveil so that it coincides with the Alto brand’s 40th anniversary.

Quote:
Not to be confused with the India-spec Maruti Alto 800, the Suzuki Alto sold globally is a completely different car with unique styling. The current-gen Suzuki Alto made its debut in October 2014 and is available with a 660cc engine in multiple states of tune. The next-gen Suzuki Alto is likely to be built on the brand’s Heartect platform that currently underpins almost every new Suzuki hatchback introduced globally. The recently launched Wagon R for India is one of the latest cars to be underpinned by this architecture. The new Heartect platform is not just lighter, but also stiffer, which means the upcoming Suzuki Alto could perform even better than the outgoing car, especially in its sporty “Works” avatar that could come with a 64hp, 660cc engine.

Looks like a frowning Ignis! I don't think Maruti is adventurous enough to introduce a funky looking Alto, it will stick to what it has and make some sheet metal changes and pass it of. Given the Ignis' luke warm response this may not come here at all. Neither will the 660 cc turbo petrol make it here, it's been doing duty in Kei cars for long.

I have doubts if the new version of the global 660cc Suzuki Alto will be available for Rs 2,50,000 factory price. Even the current Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 might see a price increase of BS-IV and stricter safety/crash norms.

I feel if the engine will be introduced in the naturally aspirated variant with 54 PS power. (The turbo charged version has 64 PS).

That way the prices can be kept in check.

The F8 engine is not going to meet the BS6 norms.

And there is no other engine in the lineup to replace the F8. They will have to bring in a new one.

Next GEN Alto spied in India.

Will launch this festive season and will have design cues from its micro SUV- Future S concept.

The original 800 cc Alto, with 47 bhp was capable of doing an indicated 155 kmph on speedo, and capable of sitting there the whole day. Suzuki engines are rubost and problem free. I'm sure a 660 cc turbo petrol with 60 odd bhp can certainly mantain highway speeds today.

This is not the next gen Alto. It's Future S alright but a different Car. Prototype building has not yet been done for the same.

With the milking of the 1.3 MJD likely to end by December 2019, looks like Maruti has identified the Heartect platform as their next milking cow. All products from the Alto to the Baleno will be on the Heartect platform. Only the top hat will be different. Is it a good this or a bad thing? Well the manufacturer definitely stands to gain with the common platform as the costs can be amortized over a much larger number of units.

What about consumers? You get a WagonR that is not a WagonR, an Alto that is not an Alto, and a Future S that is not a Future S. Other than the nameplate, there will hardly be anything in common with the international model. This also means that unless the government gets serious about safety and brings in legislation for the same, you will be most probably be served with a car that cannot hold a candle to its inernational counterparts in terms of safety.

I dont understand why every car needs to be 'SUV-ish' nowadays. Firstly, it looks odd and the design will be a hit or a miss. Secondly, the God-awful SUV-ish ground clearance on such small cars will affect the ride quality significantly. Thirdly, knowing Maruti's love affair of using cycle tires for their cars, its gonna make the car pretty unstable at high speeds due to buffeting and cross winds.

The current gen Alto K-10 is a perfect example of this. The stance of the car is quite high, compared to the previous gen (more sedate looking) K10. The lousy hard rubber and the catastrophic suspension makes it a salad-tosser!

One cannot go round the laws of physics - small cars should be small cars. They should be nimble, agile and chuckable. Making them SUV-ish only makes the ride quality bouncy and float-ish and unnerving to drive.

Let's see, how many turbo petrols have clicked in India, except for the TSi? The 1.0 EcoBoost in Ecosport didn't click, How many Baleno RS's has Maruti sold: no idea! If the turbo petrol were the rage the 1.0 Boosterjet would have found it's way under the hoods of the S-Cross, Vitara Brezza, Ciaz and Ertiga. Problem is Maruti has no proper automatic transmission to compliment the turbopetrol: with a manual transmission, turbo-petrol are a pain to drive in traffic and neither do they deliver fuel efficiency commensurate with their tiny displacements!

Next Gen Alto to arrive in the Japanese market . Likely in late 2020. Due to electrification the power-train is not yet known.

The ninth generation was predicted to be 2021, but information is apparent that it will appear soon in 2020.

There is no definitive information about the contents of concern yet, but the 8th-generation redesigned lightweight platform "HEARTECT" will definitely carry over.

While the new Alto will debut this year, in Japan it is likely that an additional model, Altworks, will be set in the fall of 2021.

Maruti plans a fresh drive in entry-level space

Quote:
The company developing two models priced below Rs 5 lakh, an 800cc car and another powered by a 1-litre engine.

The first of the two new cars is expected to hit the roads by the end of 2020.

To be strapped with a 1-litre engine, the compact car, code-named YNC, will likely replace the existing Celerio, which is now available with both 1-litre and 1.2-litre engines.

The new 800cc car, code-named Y0M, will be launched by the festive season of 2021
The company is likely to take a decision on whether to continue with the Alto closer towards the 2021 launch of the 800cc car.
