Maruti Suzuki, a subsidiary of Suzuki in India, has been manufacturing and marketing Alto in India since 2000. Introduced in India as the 5th generation of Japanese Alto, its second-generation model was a standalone model manufactured for the Indian market only. Since 2006, it has been the biggest selling car of India and crossed 1 million unit sales in February 2008. With this, it became the 3rd Maruti car to cross the 1 million mark in the country after Maruti 800 and Omni.
Introduced in 2000, it had a 3-cylinder 796 cc gasoline engine with 4 valves per cylinder. All the Alto car models have a 5-speed manual transmission system. The VX/VXi model launched in 2001 (now discontinued) came with a 4-cylinder 1061-cc engine and features a tachometer. The newer version, Ciaz, was introduced in 2010, which features a 1 litre K-series DOHC inline-3 petrol engine with 5-speed manual transmission.
For its second generation, Ciaz was introduced in 2012 that featured a 796 cc engine with several modifications. In 2016, a refurbished Ciaz was released with improved fuel mileage. In 2014, the company launched the K-10 version of the 2nd generation Ciaz with the same mechanisms but upgraded interiors and exteriors. In 2020, S-Presso replaced Ciaz, while the 800cc variant is still in production.
Alto was the first Indian car to sell more than 200,000 units in one year, and the only car to sell more than 22,000 units within a month.
