I have owned the new shape Suzuki Alto for around 18 months now after trading in my previous car whilst the scrappage scheme was ongoing. No frills motoring should be expected, especially as the base model costs just shy of £6500 (model name - SZ2), whilst the top model costs just over £7500 (model name- SZ4), with an automatic costing slightly more. All the Alto models have 5 doors which seat 4 people, with all offering remote central locking, electric front windows and a wma & mp3 compatible cd player (I thought this meant a port for an mp3 player would be installed, it actually means it will play copied CDs!) as standard. I am ... Read the complete review

This is my first car, i've had it a year, right from the day that I had passed my driving test. There are so many good points to it that I just don't know where to start! Firstly, £35 a year to tax it! You couldn't go wrong with that if you wanted to. It's cheaper to insure than the other little cars (like corsas) because it's less stealable to boy racer types. It's easy to drive and good on the petrol. If you are just looking for a little run around to get from a to b then this is the perfect car, however if you're just worried about looking stylish then probably look elsewhere. I do agree that some of the older versions aren't great and the inside is seriously ... Read the complete review

My mum bought this car about two years ago for no other reasons than that it was cheap and it was wide enough to fit into (unlike a Daihatsu Cuore). Now, before you read this review, be under no pretences that this is a car you will look trendy in. If you are below the age of 40, chances are that this car is your worst nightmare. However, if you're just looking for something reliable and cheap, this is a great car. Why? Because my mum's Alto has traveled 63,268 miles and has never broken down. ... Read the complete review

Bought my first Suzuki Alto in 2002 and never looked back. Most reliable car Ive driven in 40yrs of driving. I used to think the Nissan Micra was reliable, and it was but when that broke down it was hell. The suzuki Alto how-ever has never broken down on me so far and is cheap for insurance and Ive managed to get 72mpg on it. People who don't like this car obviously have not driven for very long or probably drive it to excess, ie 80mph in 1st gear. This car may look cheap, may look basic but if you want reliability, low cost maintenance, cheap insurance payments and great MPG, go get this baby! ... Read the complete review

This car is made in India, not Japan, and is very old fashioned. The car was off the road for six months!!! waiting for a new bonnet after a smash. Suzuki were not interested in helping speed things up, and the insurance company said this was normal response from Suzuki in their experience. It has only been used as a city run-about and is a complete rattle can. Fuel economy seems to be very poor for a one litre engine, although it is an automatic. You can buy a lot better for the same money. ... Read the complete review
