  • Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 sits between Alto 800 & S-Presso in terms of pricing.
  • The Alto K10's entry level variant is significantly cheaper than that of the Renault Kwid.
  • But the top end variants of the Kwid and the Alto K10 have similar price tags.

The 2022 Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 has been launched in India with ex-showroom prices starting at Rs. 3.99 lakh for the base trim and going up to Rs. 5.83 lakh for the range-topping automatic variant. It is underpinned by Maruti Suzuki's modular Heartect platform and has seen a significant upgrade in its design, interiors, creature comforts and powertrain options. Maruti Suzuki is offering the new Alto K10 with the K10C 1-litre engine, which also powers the S-Presso, and the entry level hatch is also offered in six body colour options. Moreover, the company began accepting pre-bookings for the new Alto earlier this week and will soon start with the deliveries.

Maruti Suzuki Alto 800:

The new Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 faces competition from multiple bestselling models, including hatchbacks from within Maruti Suzuki's stable. While the Celerio gets the same engine as the Alto K10, in terms of price it sits in a segment higher, owing to its slightly better premium feel, which is why we are excluding it from this comparison. The Alto K10 sits in the middle of the Alto 800 and the S-Presso in terms of pricing, sharing certain components and features with both of those cars. Prices for the Alto 800 start at Rs. 3.39 lakh (Ex-showroom), and go up to Rs. 4.42 lakh for the top end variant in the petrol guise. The Alto 800 is also offered with factory fitted CNG, and the solitary variant costs Rs. 5.03 lakh (Ex-Showroom).

Renault Kwid:

The Renault Kwid facelift surprised many with its very extensive makeover. The car gets some new features too, and yet holds on to its inherent strengths that made this SUV-inspired entry hatchback popular to begin with. It has done enough to stay relevant, credible and capable. And yet it remains good value, offers a fair bit of kit at the entry end of the market, and looks pretty cool while doing it. The Kwid is offered with two engine options, including an 800 cc unit & a 1.0-litre unit, and you can get more details about the specifications of the hatchback in our detailed spec comparison. The pricing for the Kwid starts at Rs. 4.64 lakh (Ex-showroom) which is a premium above the starting price of the Alto K10 & S-Presso, but the higher variants cost similar to that as the S-Presso, with the top-end automatic variant costing an identical Rs. 5.99 lakh.

The Renault Kwid is offered with an 800 cc engine as well as a 1.0-litre engine.
