THE addition of Dual VVT (Variable Valve Timing) for greater flexibility and response has resulted in further reductions in carbon dioxide emissions as well as improvements to fuel economy on the Suzuki Alto.
The latest model, which is now on sale, also incorporates a new design interior colour and fabric trim, new full wheel covers for SZ and SZ3 models and dipping rear view mirror.
Alto with manual transmission new emits 99 g/km and is therefore exempt from theLondoncongestion charge, which brings a potential annual cost saving of £2,600 to a commuter travelling into the capital five days a week, and is £0 rated for Vehicle Excise Duty.
The optional automatic transmission equipped SZ4 model now also benefits from lower emissions with a reduction to 118 g/km from 122 g/km.
The Alto shares the 1.0 litre three-cylinder K10B petrol unit with the European built entry-level Splash model. Combined cycle fuel consumption is 65.7 mpg.
