Maruti Suzuki has recently patented a sketch of a small car which has leaked on Internet. If reports are to be believed than this small car looks like the Maruti Suzuki Alto Lapin, which is sold in the Japanese market with the name of Alto Kei’. In Japanese markets, it has the retro look but in India, we are expecting different design. Maruti Suzuki has recently launched their SUV Vitara Brezza and now it is focussing to manufacture a small car like Alto Kei.
Maruti Suzuki Alto Lapin Kei Launch Dates and Prices
Till now, only sketch has been patented and this also doesn’t confirm its arrival. If this car launched, ever, than at least it will 2-3 years of time because production of a car after designing is a big project. So we can expect its arrival in the last of 2017 or in the early 2018. Now, upon its arrival, this car will be directly rivalling Renault Kwid so its cost price will be around Rs 3 Lakh to Rs 4 Lakh.
