Suzuki Alto becomes lowest CO2 5 door petrol family car

When the new Suzuki Alto goes on sale in the UK on 01 March 2009, it will become the lowest-emitting five-door family petrol car in UK at 103 g/km CO2.

With its three-cylinder 67 bhp 1.0-litre engine, the Alto costs just £6,795 and will join three other models in the Suzuki range with emissions of less than 120 g/km, including the newly-introduced 1.0-litre Splash GLS variant.

Combined fuel consumption is 64.2 mpg and annual road tax (VED Band B) is just £35.

Commenting on the introduction of the new Alto, David Seward, Director of Sales and Marketing, Suzuki GB, explains: “There has always been a continued drive by Suzuki to offer fun and exciting products combined with value for money, and the forthcoming Alto is no different. Furthermore, being able to offer such an environmentally-friendly petrol engine is a rare proposition as we are one of very few manufacturers to break the 104 g/CO2 barrier, as EU emissions targets become even stricter.”
