Japanese compact car and motorcycle manufacturer Suzuki Philippines, Inc. (SPH) rolls out another version of one of its most popular and fastest-selling compact car — the Suzuki Alto K10.

Perfect for people who are seeking power, performance and attitude in their car, the new Suzuki Alto K10 now comes packed with the K10B, 1.0 liter, DOHC 12-valve gasoline engine with direct ignition and timing chain, the same engine found in Suzuki’s well-accepted Celerio model.

“The Suzuki Alto, which we first introduced in 2007, is still one of our most popular cars primarily because of its fuel efficiency and unparalleled value for money. Globally, we have sold more than 10 million units of this model and in the Philippines, it remains to be the car of choice for many first time car buyers and corporations,” said Arvie Fugoso, Assistant Marketing Manager for the Automobile Sales and Marketing Division of Suzuki Philippines Inc.

“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 5-speed 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. Likewise, Alto K10 has a 3-years/100k warranty.

For his part, Mr. Shuzo Hoshikura, General Manager of the Automobile Sales and Marketing Division said, “We at Suzuki are very confident that the new Alto is an outstanding addition to an already impressive lineup of compact cars Suzuki has offered for decades.”

The Suzuki Alto K10 retails at Php 439,000 and comes in Silky Silver, Dazzling Red and Sunlight Copper Metallic.
