New Maruti Alto K10 vs Rivals Specification Comparison

Maruti 2014 Alto K10 Vs Hyundai Eon Vs Datsun Go

Now that new Alto K10 has made its market debut, it’s time for its rematch against its competitive and sophisticated rivals. Hyundai Eon has always presented itself as credible Alto alternative and with launch of Datsun Go this fight has become triangular in nature. We get you the sense of capabilities underlying these city runabouts in this specification comparison review.

Power Struggle: Both Alto and Eon in this comparison displace 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder motor that produces almost identical power and torque. In case of Alto these figures stands at 68 PS/90 Nm while Eon dishes out 69PS/94 Nm. Advantage here accrue in favor of Dustun Go that comes with relatively bigger 1.2-litre of cubic capacity that is good for 68PS/104Nm. On mileage front, Alto K10 zooms ahead with ARAI certified efficiency of 24.07 km/l courtesy of its free-revving K-series motor.

Space Skirmish: All three contestants here are essentially small city runabouts and to expect spacious cabin in first place will sure to disappoint potential buyers. Still Datsun Go with its bigger and wider footprints impresses the most in this lot. It dwarfs competition on almost all counts (except height where Eon leads chart) and is the most spacious entry level hatchback. Eon comes second in dimensional comparison while Alto K10 with its cramped interiors stacks on bottom rung.

Alto k10, July 1 2016.

VISITOR                                                                hi


VISITOR                                                                which colour is good for Alto k10


AGENT                                                                  hi it is individual choice and liking


VISITOR                                                                for resale


AGENT                                                                  white and light colours have better resale


VISITOR                                                                granite gray?


AGENT                                                                  and also suits Indian hot condition as light colour reflects heat


AGENT                                                                  decent colour friend


VISITOR                                                                i m confused between blue and gray


AGENT                                                                  both are good colours. Don’t worry you will not face huge difference in resale. Miniscule only and you would have upgraded to bigger cars so will not matter??


VISITOR                                                                ya right. thanks 

Comparison: Alto k10 vs Datsun Go vs Wagon R, Mar 8 2016.

VISITOR                                                i am planning to buy Alto K10, is this the right choice or i should look Datsun Go or wagon R?


AGENT                                                  If you can stretch, go for WagonR, however, don't buy the lowest variant of WagonR, if budget does not permit, I would rather request you to go for Alto top-end


AGENT                                                  Datsun Go is a big car, however, you might suffer on resale, even after 5 years.


AGENT                                                  if resale is not an issue, then even GO can be considered


VISITOR                                                okk thanks

Comparison: Alto K10 vs Kwid vs Eon, January 6, 2016


VISITOR                           Which car to buy in 4.10 price bracket


AGENT                            Any options in your mind?


VISITOR                          Alto K10, Kwid, Eon


VISITOR                          Kwid has space but engine is not good i think


AGENT                             Yes true, if we talk about durability of engines, undoubtedly i would suggest Hyundai Eon, Kappa engines has always been better than Maruti's k-series engines.


AGENT                            Renault Kwid is spacious, but space isn’t everything a customer looks for. Eon is loaded with more features. K10 is value for money car .


VISITOR                          What about cost of service and spares and also Eon is 800 cc engine and alto K10 has 1000 cc. and resale value


AGENT                            Less than the other ones.


AGENT                            resale value will be good in case of Maruti


VISITOR                          Eon is somewhat on costly side i think


AGENT                            Yes, Hyundai and Maruti's known for their low maintenance cost, features and resale value and low maintenance cost.


VISITOR                          What do you suggest i should go for which car i have a family of 5 occasional out of city trips my priority is comfort, cost of ownership should be low and should be value for money proposition


AGENT                            Either Kwid or K10. However, i’m little inclined towards Eon.


VISITOR                           So Maruti alto K10 is it


AGENT                            As per your requirements from the car, Alto K10 is perfect, but we can’t ignore ample space of Kwid and smooth drivability of Eon.


VISITOR                          yes I know. Thanks :)
