Reasons to Buy New Maruti Alto 2010 with K-Series Engine
There was a time when the Indian roads had only Ambassadors and Fiats to choose from and we were more than happy with those cars. Now, the scenario on Indian roads has changed rapidly and we have a lot of choices, especially in the small cars segment. I can still remember those days when my uncle brought the first Maruti 800 some 20 years back while I was a kid. We enjoyed the smooth handling of that small cute car comparing with our old heavy Ambassador and now the time has changed and latest technology cars have arrived. These new cars are equipped with latest fuel efficient and low emission engines and Maruti is one and only brand which has some place in the heart of every car buyer in India. After the extreme success of Maruti cars including Wagon R, Swift, Ritz, and Alto in India, Maruti has come up with new 1L K-series engine for all its brands. As the Ritz is new, it already has that engine. All other new car models are being loaded with this engine but all this is available at an escalated price and it is there because this new engines provides better mileage and less pollution which are both benefits for any car owner.
