While the existing model of Alto, marketed in different countries of the world, measures around 1000cc in its engine capacity, the manufacturer Pak Suzuki is planning to launch its low displacement variant in the first quarter of 2019, revealed a leaked circular from the company to its vendors.
According to rumours from within the company, the manufacturer has already developed around two dozen units of the new Alto 2019 car for testing purposes.And some more units have been assembled for display at showrooms.
And with the launch of the new 660cc Alto, the sales of Mehran, one of the most affordable four-wheelers in the country, are predicted to be discontinued. Such an unwelcome decision has been made by the parent company, Suzuki Japan. So, the launch of the Alto 2019 can be considered as a replacement for the outgoing Mehran. It was a hard decision for Pak Suzuki to discontinue the sales of one of its most selling cars in the country, but it had to yield to immense pressure from the parent company.
While you might be confused about the engine capacity of the new car, it is likely to have the displacement figure of 660cc. It gives an indication that the car will offer outstanding fuel economy. The fuel efficiency is already high on the existing 1000cc engine, i.e. up to 24 kilometers per liter.
Placed in the Japanese kei car segment, Suzuki Alto enjoys the reputation of being a family friendly city car, offered against an incredibly affordable package.
The new model is reported to be available in three variants, two manual and one automatic. In the fully loaded automatic variant, you’ll also come across the power steering. The engine is expected to carry the same technology as found in the locally assembled Suzuki Wagon R.
- A 660cc engine (imported).
