We wish we had a magic mirror that could help us pick the better car between the all-new Hyundai Eon and the tried and tested Maruti Suzuki Alto K-10
The Maruti Suzuki Alto has managed to sustain what could be termed as a car manufacturer's dream run and most of the credit goes to its good value at the puny price, something that no other car model has been able to achieve so far. The price is so low that it makes profits margins wafer thin. It’s no surprise that we haven’t seen a new car launch in this segment for close to a decade now. At the same time it says a lot about the Alto as it remains the largest selling car across segments for over six years. The launch of the Alto-K10 accelerated the sales further to 1.48 lakh units this financial year! This showed how the Indian car market had evolved as buyers preferred to shell out extra money for the K-10 version over the cheaper Alto 800 and Maruti 800. Indians are read to pay a little extra for a better, feature-rich product.
