Love the Kei car styling. :)


powered by Suzuki’s famous 660CC three-cylinder engine with a fuel consumption of 37 km/L
37 km/L = 87 mpg US = 2.7 L/100 km

Keep in mind, that rating is based on the Japanese fuel economy test cycle, which is famously optimistic.

For comparison, the current Toyota Prius liftback is rated at 89.4 mpg US on the Japanese system. In the U.S. it has a 50 mpg (21.3 km/L) combined EPA rating.

In that perspective, it kind of takes the wind out of the little Suzuki's sails. I'm not familiar enough with the Kei class of cars to know how the Alto compares to its direct competitors.

In 2011, Suzuki launched the Alto Eco variant, that features the R06A engine lifted from the Suzuki MR Wagon and an idling stop function. It is capable of reaching the fuel economy of 30.2 km/L (71MPG) based on Japan's JC08 Mode test cycle (32 km/L under 10-15 test cycle). This is .2 km/L higher than the Daihatsu Mira e:S. Wikipedia

Are both of Japanese test mode not close to reality?
On positive side it would be just around 7000$ and it's worth to keep it while getting hold on middle eastern oil and 0% import duty on JDM in Pakistan :)
PHEV don't even stand a chance in Pakistan we always have expensive electricity shortfall :(

Reminds me of a Fiat Panda from years back.

Nice... but what if you want, err need, a car that has 17" rims?

That is a cool little car. I love the slotted grill!

That front clip doesn't seem to help aerodynamically-wize, it looks like a brick.
