2.7.2012 Suzuki Alto is UK's cheapest car to own
Today, Suzuki launched their new Alto SZ City car – now the most affordable car on the UK market to purchase at just £5995 on the road, with free VAT until 30th September.
The new Alto also offers high fuel economy and low CO2 emissions from just 99 g/km, which both help to keep running costs to a minimum whilst contributing to a reduced impact of motoring upon the environment.
Emitting 99 gCO2/km means that the new Alto qualifies for road tax exemption, in the first year and in subsequent years. For London based drivers the low CO2 figure also means exemption for the congestion charge, which can save regular London drivers £2,600 annually. All models are insurance group 4E, adding to low running costs.
The recently revised Alto Minor Change model includes Dual VVT (Variable Valve Timing) for greater engine flexibility and response. This modification has been largely responsible for the reduced emissions and the improvements to fuel economy.
The engine achieves a maximum torque of 90Nm/66lbft at 3,400 rpm, an EC combined fuel consumption of 65.7 mpg and CO2 emissions of 99 g/km. These figures make Alto one of the cleanest petrol-powered City cars on sale in the UK.
The latest model incorporates a new design interior colour and fabric trim, new full wheel covers for SZ and SZ3 models and dipping rear view mirror. Glistening Grey metallic has also been added to the range as an optional colour.
So if you are on the lookout for a brand new car that is affordable to buy and very cheap to run, the new Alto should certainly be in your shortlist. The current Alto has been very popular for Suzuki, who expects to sell 8,000 of the new versions over the next year. The new Altos are available in Suzuki dealerships for test driving as of today.
