The next-generation Alto is codenamed YOM. The brand is now in advanced stages of developments as images of the test mule have appeared on the internet, testing public roads. The brand had also planned to launch the YOM, which will be the next-generation Alto, by mid-2021. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the brand could have delayed its plans to 2022.

The next-generation Maruti Suzuki Alto will come with a completely refreshed front and rear fascia. The car will also come with redesigned interiors. Also, the brand is likely to update the upholstery and add a new infotainment system to the new Alto. Thanks to advanced interior design techniques and trim optimisation, the car is also likely to be roomier on the inside.
