If one watches closely, there is blue lighting in the cockpit, and in the bumper grille. Will this be available as an option? [wink]

Yes, It's quite unlikely. I think that's only the lighting work to spice it up.

So the waiting is getting over, one more day.
This would be one of most important launches for Maruti and Indians, who are so much obsessed with Maruti brand.

One news i heard was that the existing model will be sold along with the new model.
Yes, but the cheaper 800cc one will be the best bet for ones who are getting their first car(maybe after lot of pains).
800 or current Alto will continue for sometime, till Nano takes over these two. Believe or not, Nano will take over these 800cc segments car in very near future. Maruti knows and they have to give more to keep this best selling market share.

Sorry if I am going off-topic.

But give me one reason to buy this over the A-Star.

Its cheaper than A-Star.
Has same engine.
With lower weight, Alto should be more peppier to drive.

Maruti has not launched Alto K10 to replace A-star. But it has filled gap between Alto 800 and A-star/Zen Estilo.

Old chasis
Cramped
Looks too old.

IMO, the A-Star LXi at 3.50 is more VFM than alto K10 at 3:16
