The Alto hatchback from Maruti Suzuki is a major contributor to the company’s sales in India. The Indian automaker’s association with the upcoming movie based on the Indian cricketer MS Dhoni has gone a step ahead with the company now introducing the MS Dhoni inspired limited edition Alto. The changes are limited to cosmetic upgrades, while mechanically it continues to be powered by existing engine options.
Maruti’s Alto hatchback has been the only car which has cumulatively sold about 30 lakh units in the country, while MS Dhoni is a living legend who is known for his dynamic leadership in the cricketing world. The special edition has been offered in the Alto 800 Lxi variant and the Alto K10 in Lxi and Vxi variants. It continues to be powered by the 796cc engine which generates about 47bhp of power and the 998cc K10B engine which outputs 67bhp of power. As for interior, the limited edition models have been offered in two combinations Black with Silver and Red with Blue.
The MS Dhoni inspired special edition Alto is offered with interesting upgrades in the form of the MS Dhoni decal, number ‘7’ inscribed sporty seat covers, reverse parking sensor and a high end music system. The limited edition variants will reach dealerships sometime by October, 2016. Interested customers will have to shell out an additional Rs 16,777 for Alto 800 Lxi, while the special editions of Alto K10 Lxi and Alto K10 Vxi cost an additional Rs 12,777 over their current prices.
