Suzuki Alto Works unveiled at 2015 Tokyo Motor Show

Suzuki Alto Works unveiled at 2015 Tokyo Motor Show

Suzuki has taken the wraps off its Alto Works at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. As the name suggests, it is a sportier version of the standard JDM-spec Alto kei car. It gets cosmetic updates as well as some boosted mechanicals to give it the go to match with its name.

Externally the Alto Works gets a body kit that includes a larger air dam, fog lamps, special alloy wheels, red brake calipers and in typical JDM modifier fashion, a lot of stickers all over. The cabin gets sporty Recaro seats, leather wrapped wheel and red contrast stitching. This might seem less but you should consider the fact that the standard car gets an AC/heater as well as a touchscreen system in the features package.

The Alto Works is powered by a 660cc three-cylinder engine that produces 51bhp and 63Nm of torque with power going to the front wheels via a ‘short-shifting’ five-speed manual. Considering the size of the car and the engine, 51bhp should be more than enough to have fun with this little hatchback. After all, in our market the original Zen with its carburetted 1.0-litre engine produced 48bhp and till date is a hoot to drive. 

The Japanese market and its Kei car regulations are pretty unique. They have resulted in quite a few cars that would be totally out of place anywhere else in the world and it seems like this Alto is one of them. However, that being said, we would still be totally kicked if Maruti Suzuki did make a sportier version of the Alto that is sold in India.
