2009 Suzuki Alto
A new small car unveiled at the Paris Auto Show: the Alto — the fifth and smallest member of its acclaimed lineup 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, thereby meeting the lifestyle needs of today’s motorists and the pressing global need for environmental compatibility.
The Alto is powered by a 1.0 liter petrol engine developing 68 hp at 6,000 rpm and 90 Nm of torque at 4,800 rpm mated to a choice between a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox. Fuel consumption is low at 62.7 mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions are just 103g/km.
Suzuki aims to achieve annual sales of 60,000 units in Europe following a sales launch in spring 2009.
