The chic Alto Works minicar can now be order exclusively in Japan. The tiny Suzuki with its three cylinder 660 cc engine costs from around 12,500 dollars.
You do not always have to be loud and flashy to attract attention and you can feel as good in a small city model as in a big and angry car. And you only have to look at the Alto Works to realize that. The Suzuki minicar has only 3,395 mm in length and a 2,460 mm wheelbase, but its appeal is undeniable. The Japanese carmaker has officially pulled the wraps off the Alto Works, in a premiere, during the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. The new car is now available for sale in its homeland, with a starting price from around 12,500 dollars. The model is based on the little Alto Turbo RS version, which comes with a petite 660 cc petrol turbocharged three-cylinder engine. It is all you need to have some fun while driving through urban areas and not only.
The 64 horsepower and 70 pound-feet of torque may sound laughable, but the Alto carries only 1,350 pounds of weigh. It even has an option for a 4WD system that can be matted either with a standard five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic one. The Works version is bringing a full body kit, on its exterior, helping it stand out even more by adding a new front and rear bumpers, some new side sills and the multi-spoke alloy wheels, finished in black, covering the red brake calipers. The interior has received black sports Recaro seats with the contrast red stitching, an updated instrument cluster and a leather wrapped steering wheel. You have to admit this package sounds like great fun.
