Pak Suzuki announced during an exhibition at Karachi Expo Center on April 2019 that the new Alto 660 CC will be launched in June 2019 for consumers.

Suzuki Alto Features:
Japanese Alto has three variants L, S and X. It is equipped with a 658cc 3 cylinder VVT engine. It has three types of transmissions. A 5-speed manual, 5-speed semi-automatic and a CVT gearbox model.
The 660cc “Pakistani Alto” comes in both manual and automatic variants. The hatchback will be a direct competitor to the 800cc United Bravo, which is set to make its debut in Pakistan’s automobile market.
However, in the sector of 660cc, the Pakistani Alto will compete with similar Japanese cars and many other Japanese 660cc cars. With the ban on buying better pricing and non-filers’ vehicles, the arena for Alto is clear enough for them to come into the market and sell more.
Suzuki Alto 660cc release in Pakistan is expected in June this year. However, all three variants have already been introduced.
Suzuki Alto VX (without AC, Suzuki Alto VXR) With AC, Suzuki Alto VXL AGS holds the best variant VXL AGS power doors, windows and retractable mirrors of Pakistani Alto with auto gear shift.
At first glance one can guess that the quality of the doors and seats is the same as that of the Suzuki Wagon R and Clots. The VXL AGS model also has two air bags.
Pak Wells reviewed the Alto 2019 VXL model presented for exhibition at PAPS 2019 and stated that it has Auto Gear Shift (AGS) and Anti Lock Braking System (ABS). This technology is already present in the high-end model of Suzuki Klits.
The Japanese version of the Alto comes with cool features like airbags, heated seats, infotainment systems, improved seats and cruise control. Its prominent safety features include Parking Assist and Collision Warning, while Pakistani Alto variants are unlikely to have such features and facilities.
Alto have auto gear shift (AGS), anti-lock braking system (ABS), power doors and windows, crystal headlamps, privacy glass (front and rear) and rechargeable mirrors.
