Suzuki Australia today unveiled the all-new Alto ? which will join the Suzuki line-up later this year.
The fifth and smallest member of Suzuki?s range of world strategic models, the new Alto combines eye-catching style and easy urban mobility with great performance in terms of fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions.
Already on sale in Europe, the Alto has returned fuel economy figures of just 4.4 L/100 km and CO2 emissions of just 103 grams per kilometre.
?Alto is the answer for people wanting a quality vehicle offering great performance, high levels of safety and outstanding fuel economy,? Suzuki Australia General Manager Tony Devers said.
The new Alto is powered by a three cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine producing peak power output of 50kW with a maximum torque of 90Nm. The Euro IV-compliant engine delivers fuel consumption of just 4.5L/100km and produces only 103g/km of CO2 emissions*1. Standard transmission is five-speed manual, while a four-speed automatic transmission will be available as an option.
The new Alto will be available in two specifications. The entry level model will come standard with air conditioning, CD stereo system with MP3 auxiliary input, remote central locking, ABS brakes and six airbags. ESP is available.
The cabin layout apportions most of the space to the front seats but still provides ample space for four adults with numerous handy storage spaces for small items located throughout the cabin.
Manufactured in Suzuki?s Manesar plant in India, the Alto was designed by Suzuki engineers and refined and tuned for European customers through an extensive development and test drive program.
