Shanghai, October 6, 2008 (Gasgoo.com) Japanese carmaker Suzuki Motor showcased its seventh-generation Alto at the 2008 Paris Motor Show held from October 2-19, 2008 as the world premiere of the all-new Alto model.

The all-new Suzuki Alto will also be produced in Suzuki's Chinese joint venture Changan Suzuki company in Chongqing by September 2009, Chongqing Morning Post said on October 4.

The seventh-generation Alto, as Suzuki's all-new upgraded version, will be powered by the Suzuki-developed 1.0L aluminium petrol engine which meets Euro V emissions standards. It combines eye-catching style and easy urban mobility with great performance in terms of high fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions.

A manual transmission version and an automatic transmission version will be offered for choice. The model can reach a top speed of up to 120km/h above.

According to executives of Suzuki China, the new Alto will be made in Changan Suzuki by 2009 as the joint venture's latest entry-level car. But Changan Suzuki insiders said they haven't received any information about Chinese-made new Alto, and the existing Alto is still under production.
