“We are optimistic that with the introduction of this latest model, we will be strengthening our presence in the first time owner markets –be it the small families, the students and the young professionals,” Fugoso added.

Aside from the K10B engine, the new Suzuki Alto K10 comes with a 5speed manual transmission, electronic power steering (EPS), front power windows, power door locks, AM/FM CD, MP3 audio system with aux port, full wheel caps, seat belts for all passengers and an engine immobilizer system.  Alto K10 also has a 3-years/100k warranty.
