The all new Alto is aimed mainly at people who want a small car that offers style and enjoyment together with great environmental credentials, and it reflects the ideals of the second phase of Suzuki’s world strategy. At the heart of the concept for the new Alto is Suzuki’s belief that people should be able to enjoy economical, eco-friendly motoring without sacrificing style, comfort, practicality, or performance.
An environment that prioritizes front-seat occupants
Design, Comfort & Practicality :
- Power Steering
- Remote Central Locking
- Electric Windows
- Air Conditioning
- CD Player (mp3)
The cabin layout apportions most of the space to the front seats but still provides ample space for four adults. Handy storage spaces for small items are located all around the cabin. Notwithstanding the new Alto’s compact exterior dimensions, there’s a usable amount of luggage space behind the rear seats, and folding down the rear seatback expands the space into a roomy luggage area suited to daily use.
Performance and environmental compatibility
- Euro 5 compliant 1.0-Litre Petrol Engine
- Fuel Consumption: 4.4L/100km
- CO2 emissions:103g/km
Engine and Transmissions
The new Suzuki Alto is powered by a Euro 5, three cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine. This unit is light and compact with low friction characteristics. Maximum power output is 50kW, with a maximum torque of 90N-m. Fuel consumption is as low as 4.4L/100km and CO2 emissions of just 103g/km. The standard transmission is five-speed manual gear box.
The front suspension is of MacPherson strut type and the large, high-rigidity suspension frame is complemented by further strengthening in the strut mounting areas for superior handling. The rear suspension has Suzuki’s proprietary 3-link rigid axle design, and incorporates numerous refinements for the new car. The coil springs and dampers were tuned for optimum handling stability through extensive testing on roads in Europe. Suzuki targeted handling that makes driving enjoyable on urban roads, so drivers enjoy linear response, gentle roll movements, light steering feel and goo absorption of shock and vibration. These benefits reflect the experience Suzuki has gained in motorsport around the world.
The New Alto has a minimum turning radius of just 4.5m making it easy to manoeuvre and park in tight spaces.
Crushable structure and four airbags
- Front SRS airbags
- Side air bags
- ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System)
- Energy-absorbing trim materials
In the unfortunate event of an accident, the new Alto body reflects Suzuki’s Total Effective Control Technology (TECT) concept in the form of crushable structures that absorb impact energy, frame members that disperse impact energy away from occupants and a strong cabin structure. Use of high-tensile steel for major body parts means the resulting high level of occupant safety does not add excessive weight to the body.
