Shockingly, the base variant of the Suzuki Alto costs PKR 922,000 (INR 339,000) in India, whereas Pak Suzuki Motor Company, Pakistan’s Suzuki vehicle manufacturer, offers the older model of the Suzuki Alto for a starting price of Rs1.7 million.

The 0.8-liter petrol engine in the Indian Alto 800 produces 48 PS and 69 Nm and is connected to a five-speed manual transmission. When using CNG, the output drops to 41 ps and 60 nm. The vehicle’s quoted mileage is 31.59 km/kg for CNG and 22.05 km per litre for petrol.

On the other hand, Pakistani Alto is powered by a 3-cylinder 658 cc R06A petrol engine mated to either a 5-speed manual or auto gear shift (AGS) transmission. The variant we are talking about is the manual base variant. The hatchback offers a maximum output power of 39hp at 6500 rpm and a torque of 56 Nm at 4000 rpm. With a compression ratio of 10:1, it comes with a multi-point injection system. The Suzuki Alto offers seating for four adults and a fuel capacity of 27 litres.

When comparing the Indian Alto to the Pak Suzuki-produced Alto, the Indian Alto appears to have greater power because it has a larger engine, more torque, and costs less.

It is worth noting that despite its hefty price tag Suzuki Alto is also Pakistan’s most-selling car currently as it is the only mini hatchback sold below Rs2 million from a prominent automaker.
