The launch of the next-generation iteration of India’s largest selling car, the Maruti Suzuki Alto is true round the corner. We expect that the Indo-Japanese automaker will debut an equivalent in our country before the festive season this year. This generation update will see the Alto adorn a totally different persona as compared to the model that it'll replace.
A single spy shot of what seems to be just like the test mule of the next-generation Maruti Suzuki Alto has now surfaced online curtsey Rushlane. Going by this image, we can see that the new Alto will adorn a beefier look and hence, according to our expectations, will be aimed at the market sentiment inclined towards butch looking products.
The 2019 Maruti Alto is probably going to be supported the HECRTECT platform. This will alow this hatchback to satisfy the upcoming safety regulations.

The list will incude dual-airbags with ABS and EBD along side rear parking sensors and high-speed alert system.
The engine specifications of the 2019 Maruti Alto are a subject of continuous debate.
