      Congrats On the wagon R. I took the alto till gumidipundi. And that day i did about 100kms on highways. Car maintains 100-120 without a sweat. Pushing above that didn't feel confident.

      AFAIK the amt is available only on the VXI and VXI ( O ) for alto k10. Even the top end vxi (O ) is poorly kitted. It has airbags but misses out on ABS.

      the amt vxi(o) looses few features with respect to the VXI MT like body colored handles and ORVM and fog lights and so on.. This logic seemed little stupid to me. because one would assume the automatic top end would have it all. sadly maruti doesnt agree with common perception

      Yes , sorry . The alto LX did not have the AMT version and the Wagon R VXI which I bought had a lower model with AMT I think . The difference was not much btwn the Alto AMT and the Wagon R Amt . It was around 40,000 extra when I bought after discounts . Incidentally , mine was the first Wagon R amt to be delivered by the dealership last year . The wagon R amt comes with all the body coloured bumpers , ovrm , passenger under seat storage which was one of the reasons to go for the car . While I like the car over all I am not really happy with the fuel efficiency part . I used to own an alto 800 and the mileage inside the city was better on that one .

      Another important feature these days which is required is a bluetooth , especially a city car . The OEM HU did not have bluetooth , but the celerio gets a bluetooth . The Alto also misses out on bluetooth .

      Does the Alto get an AC filter as an accessory ? I learnt it the hard way when my blower fan was making noises and found dust was the reason . The dealership charged me Rs450 for cleaning it up . The Air filter costs only Rs.350 plus cleaner air inside the cabin .

      my last tank up gave around 13.5kmpl ..

      and this was after driving as long as possible between 2 to 4k rpm. . driving below 2k is just no fun.

      So it's August 2017 now, wondering how much abuse the k10 has taken by your hands , is it still working
