Australia’s first sub-light car will also be one of the safest with the Suzuki Alto achieving a high four-star rating in the latest round of ANCAP testing.

With segment-leading safety of six airbags as standard, including head protecting side curtain airbags, and the availability of electronic stability control on the higher specification, the exciting new Alto is set to change the face of small car motoring when it hits Australian showrooms next month. 

“Suzuki is proud to be the first local car company to offer a vehicle with not only the fuel economy of a hybrid at one third of the price but with such high levels of safety as well,” says Suzuki Australia General Manager Tony Devers.

“Alto will be the answer for budget conscious customers who aren’t willing sacrifice on style, safety or performance. It matches the lifestyle needs of today's motorists whilst meeting the pressing global need for environmental efficiencies.

Devers said safety was a key priority in every Suzuki vehicle. “Every passenger car in the Suzuki Australia line-up has achieved a minimum four star rating, and the Alto maintains the company’s proud safety record.”

The Alto goes on sale in Australia on August 1.
