Not much to say about this one, it is what it is: small, cheap and fuel efficient.

It would be nice if these Kei cars were sold in The States. They'd be great as city cars.

Suzuki Unveils All-New Alto
http://www.carscoops.com/2014/12/suzuki-unveils-all-new-alto-kei-car-in.html
Suzuki has launched the all-new eighth-generation Alto kei car on the Japanese market. Based on a newly-developed platform, the new Alto is up to 60 kg (132 lbs) lighter and features the lowest fuel consumption among non-hybrid gasoline vehicles in Japan, according to Suzuki.

More specifically, the new Alto returns 37.0km/l according to the JC08 cycle, which is equivalent to just 2.7 l/100 km or 87 mpg US. That’s because the base 2WD Alto with five-speed manual transmission tips the scales at just 610 kg (1,345 lbs).

The new Suzuki Alto obviously won’t turn too many heads with its retro-awkward looks, but is said to have a roomy interior with the longest cabin length (2,040mm) in its class (two-box minicars with an overall height of under 1,550mm), thanks to the longer wheelbase (2,460mm) compared to the previous model.

The JDM Alto is powered by a 660 cc three-cylinder engine in both naturally aspirated and turbocharged configurations, mated to either a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic. It is offered with both 2WD and 4WD versions, with prices starting from 847,800 yen ($7,060) for the base model.








A Hypothetical Suzuki Alto Sport
http://www.carscoops.com/2014/12/ultra-cheap-hot-hatch-hypothetical.html
There are bigger wheels, a lower stance and some light sticker action going on down the lower sides of the vehicle. The front bumper gets a blacked out center section and a lower apron, and these immediately transform the look of the front – this is the kind of car that would go nicely with some lightly smoked headlights too.

As far as what would power such a thing, well, they could eek extra power out of the 660 cc turbo unit the standard car comes with, but a bigger engine would be nice too. Keep in mind that this car would not exceed 700 kg (1,540 lbs), so it wouldn’t really need all that much more power, just tighter suspension, brakes and steering for the most part.


Suzuki Alto Turbo RS Concept is For Real
http://www.carscoops.com/2014/12/this-suzuki-alto-turbo-rs-concept-is.html
The new Alto Turbo RS Concept will be revealed at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon on January 9. Power comes from a turbocharged 0.66-liter three-cylinder petrol engine with an unspecified output.

Exterior upgrades include red and light grey graphics, bigger 17-inch wheels in red and discreet spoilers, with Suzuki adding that it also has a re-tuned suspension for improved handling.

Joining the Alto Turbo RS Concept at Suzuki's stand are two conceptual versions of the Hustler small minivan dubbed Road Bike and Outdoor Style, with the former featuring a lowered suspension, special graphics and 17-inch wheels, and the latter, a rainbow of colors and a taller-riding suspension.
