Car Review New Suzuki Alto Technical Data & Specification

The Alto is Suzuki’s new city car aimed at people looking for a compact stylish car giving fun and excitement but losing none of the practicality.

Suzuki Alto Design


The rounded front headlamps add to the new Suzuki Alto’s fun personality, whilst the angular rear lights give it a sleeker, sportier feel. The SZ4 models add 14″ alloy wheels complementing the car beautifully.

It’s eye-catching curvaceous style not only gives it lots of character but also great aerodynamics. Little touches like the streamlined door mirrors help reduce drag which lowers fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The new Suzuki Alto also has a body which is strong but lightweight helping the manual transmission version achieve 64.2 mpg on the combined cycle with only 103 g/km CO2 emissions making it qualify for the £35 road tax band.

Inside, eveything is designed to be both easy to reach and operate. The CD tuner has MP3 compatibility with iPod connectivity. There’s also handy storage compartments for your CDs, keys and drinks. The SZ4 also has a tachometer for that sporty touch.  In addition, there’s room for four adults plus their shopping with the new Suzuki Alto’s 129 litre boot space.

The new Suzuki Alto is available in nine eye-catching colours: Bright Red and White are the standard solid colours with Fortune Rose, Paradise Blue, Desert Brown, Healing Green, Silky Silver, Midnight Black and Azure Grey metallics.
