suzuki alto

The Alto is powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which has a modest 67bhp. It’s reasonably perky in town and can just about hold its own on the motorway. However, if you lose pace behind slow traffic, it'll take quite a while to build speed back up again. The Alto is also available with a four-speed automatic gearbox. The Alto makes life simple in town, because the dimensions and tight turning circle give you hassle-free maneuvering. The steering could be lighter at parking speeds, though. It struggles more when the road opens out, because there's a lot of body lean in bends and you do get jostled around quite a lot by the ride.

Keep within the city limits and the Alto is reasonably quiet. You barely hear a peep from the suspension, and you don't need to give the engine a stack of revs. You'll have to flog the engine a lot more if you head onto faster roads, though, and that's when the thrum-my three-cylinder engine starts to get intrusive. Wind and road noise can be heard at cruising speeds, too.
