Read the review below to have an insightful depth of this gem of a car.
Suzuki Alto Exterior
The car’s body has a rectangular shape with an integrated indicator inside the big headlights and a small sized grille. Since the economy sector cars have the main concern of fuel economy, Alto is aerodynamically designed to extract as much power from fuel as possible. To provide protection to the car from the nearby vehicles, steel fenders are incorporated. The wheels are radial and tubeless. The wheelbase is of 13 inches. The paintwork is done well. There are no wipers at the back window which is problematic because the windows of hatchbacks get clogged with dust easily. The cargo area looks big and appealing from the outside. Hatchbacks usually do not have enough cargo space behind but Alto has a big and decent amount of space in which a large suitcase can be fitted easily. The space can be increased by folding the rear seats.
