The hottest news in the automotive industry is that Pak Suzuki is currently planning to launch the 2019 Suzuki Alto as a replacement of the 800cc Mehran, which the brand is now discontinuing.
Pakistan’s largest automotive manufacturer, Suzuki had previously announced the end of its Mehran variant. The VX and VXR will no longer be available to consumers. The last batch of Suzuki Mehran will be delivered by March 2019.
According to sources, the 8th gen Alto will be the entry-level hatchback which is likely to launch the vehicle in December 2018 or Q1 of next Year.
Here is the first spy shot of the Suzuki Alto 2019:
As per sources, the Suzuki Alto will be equipped with an R06A engine which is a 660cc 3-cylinder unit and is offered with the likes of Suzuki MR Wagon and Hustler.
However, an 800cc or 1000cc engine might be deployed as well. There’s no confirmation yet. The vehicle will be offered with manual as well as automatic transmission distributed across 3 trim levels.
The expected price-tag of the 2019 Alto is PKR 10 lacs. However, it can change as the rupee has fallen against the dollar and has become quite unstable causing automotive manufacturers to change their price.
Sometime back, pictures of then Minister for Planning & Development Mr Ahsan Iqbal inspecting an 8th gen Alto surfaced on social media. As per sources, the company has already manufactured 50 units.
This is a developing story.
