The rear seat’s ergonomics have been upgraded along with the added integrated raised headrests and is more comfortable comparing with the predecessor’s. The new Alto 2016 also comes with extra head and shoulder room in front plus extra leg room in the back. Cabin’s utility spaces are a plenty in the new Alto 2016 with front and rear console bottle holders, driver and front passenger storage pockets and a utility rack, to name but a few.
The new Alto 2016 upgraded with high efficiency gasoline engine uses the drive-by-wire technology which is already proven in the more upmarket models in the Suzuki range. This technology makes the engine peppier, highly fuel efficient and more responsive while enhancing the driving experience.

Addressing the gathering, Virann de Zoysa emphasized: “Today we are thrilled to have introduced the all-new Alto 2016 to you, our valued customers. You will find this version more appealing than the one it replaces. Considering the immense popularity the previous version had, we believe that the new Alto 2016 will become more popular with our customers”.
