Suzuki Alto replacement to be previewed at Geneva Show
The Suzuki Alto was first introduced in 1979. The main selling points include its low price and good fuel economy. Now, Suzuki is working on a replacement for it and a concept version will be unveiled next year at the Geneva Motor Show.
Even if Suzuki hasn’t confirmed it yet, there are rumors saying that the company will keep the "Alto" name. It will be offered in two different body-versions: a five door as standard and a sporty three-door starting 2009.
The Alto will be based on an all-new Suzuki platform. Under the hood we will see three engines will be available, including the three-cylinder 1.0-litre from the Splash. It emits 124g/km of CO2 in the supermini, but less than 120g/km in the Alto replacement. Other options comprise a more powerful 1.2-litre petrol unit and a small-capacity diesel.
