Scoop! Next-gen Maruti Alto (Y0M) launch pushed to mid-2022

The current Covid-19 situation in the country may have forced Maruti to reschedule the launch.

It’s no longer a secret that Maruti Suzuki is working on the next-generation Maruti Alto (codenamed: Y0M). We have seen multiple test mules of the car, which suggests that the car’s development is in its advanced stages.

In fact, the new Alto was supposed to be launched in 2021. However, we have been told that it has now been pushed to mid-2022. While we don’t know the exact reason for the delay, the current Covid-19 situation in the country may have forced Maruti to reschedule the launch.

Spy images suggest that the new Alto is likely to retain its overall shape with short overhangs at the front and rear. It is expected to get a redesigned front fascia and new tail lamp clusters with the rear hatch release positioned in the centre.

At present, the Alto is offered with a 796cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine that makes 47 BHP and 69 Nm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. It also comes with a factory-fitted CNG kit. Technical details of the Y0M are still unknown.
