The Maruti Alto range, which comprises of the 800 variant and K10 variant, have both been updated with new safety features. This is for the first time that the Alto 800 with the updated safety features gets detailed in a new video. K10 got the new safety features earlier this month, which resulted in price hike of up to Rs 27k.
Following stringent safety norms, all cars on sale in India should sport Anti Lock Braking System, Electronic Brake Distribution, driver side airbags, speed alerts and rear parking sensors along with passenger and driver seat belt reminder.
