Full Review

Exterior When compared to old model, looks good. Body color bumpers and side beading. Rear looks awesome. 

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Internally adjustable OVRM is a nice feature. Steeting wheel is excellent & front power window is a good feature.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Performance has been improved when compared to previous model. Gear system is awesome. I think I'll get more fuel economy after first service maintenance (Now I am getting 16 Kmpl)

Ride Quality & Handling I am experiencing some shivering when rinding on 5th gear beyond 70 kmph speed. Perhaps this will reduce after the first service maintenance. Handling the vehicle is excellent.

Final Words K10 VXi is value for money I spent

Areas of improvement The front console looks ordinary, Maruti could have modified the AC vent and operating console. The rear power windows could have provisioned. The exterior view will improve if body color window has provided. Key less entry should have provided with the Vxi model, I am annoyed because the genuine keyless entry has not arrived the showroom yet.

Hi friend,

Congrats on your new car.

what was the on road price, which region, how is the ride, have you tried with full load? How is the AC especially when over taking. What car did you owe before and how does the new alto compare.

I think the spark is more expensive and gives only slightly more space for the extra bucks. I think.

looking forward to your feedback.
