New-generation Alto, initially beginning with economy and turbocharged Works models, but the latter were deleted in 2000 as Suzuki turned Alto back into an economy line. DOHC lean-burn engine from 1999. Alto C succeeded Cervo C in 1999, and featured a different grille, with ovoid lights which were shared with the Works models. Maruti models commenced production in India in 2000, with larger engines (0·8 and 1·1); K10 model débuted in 2010 with 1·0 DOHC engine, later replaced by a rebodied version, though dated compared with newer competition in India. Badge-engineered as Mazda Carol, with the upscale trim level called MeLady, and with a different front bumper incorporating the Mazda grille from 2001. Formed the basis of the third-generation Mitsuoka Ray.
