Mild Hybrid Suzuki Alto With 37km/L Average – First Look Review

The Japanese Suzuki Alto is always preferred over the locally assembled variant in the Pakistani market due to its better build quality, fuel economy, and advanced safety. However, it exceeds the price bracket compared to the made-in-Pakistan model, for which it has never been able to break sales. In this blog, we will dive through the specs and features of the 9th-generation Japanese mild hybrid Suzuki Alto and let you make the right choice.

Design Language- 9th Gen Japanese Alto

It was launched in 2021 and hit the Japanese roads in 2022, later arriving in the Pakistani market in 2024. Its exterior is defined by fine character lines, 5-level adjustable halogen lamps, a sleek grille, and blacked-out retractable mirrors. The rear profile is marked by a change of taillamp orientation, replacing horizontal lights with a vertical design inspired by the 5th generation Alto. The 13-inch stainless steel rims add further bulkiness to the overall theme.


Engine and Power

Suzuki Alto’s prowess lies in its 660 CC engine, which is redesigned with hybrid technology this time. The in-line 3-cylinder engine paired with a CVT transmission delivers 48 HP of power and 58 Nm of torque. Its mild-hybrid technology ensures better fuel economy and less strain on the engine while charging the 3Ah battery while idling.

The OEM claims a fuel average of 37 km/l, which is an exceptional figure encountering the country’s currently soaring fuel prices.


Interior And Safety

The height of this new generation Alto is improved compared to the previous 8th generation model for better headspace and a roomy cabin. In this latest trim, the automaker has focused more on safety instead of perky features.


Keeping it all basic, its AC comes with manual controls, an anti-collision system effective for pedestrians and bike riders, parking sensors, a basic cluster panel, front cameras, and an auto headlight. Four cup holders are provided, and we feel a missing vanity mirror on the sun visors. Its boot space is just sufficient for a small grocery run, and you can also set up your small suitcase inside.


This 9th-gen Japanese Suzuki Alto costs 37,50,000 Pkr, which is lower than the Suzuki Cultus. So, if you are looking to replace your gas guzzler, this is the perfect choice.
