CarAdvice spent the day driving around Brisbane's CBD in the littlest Suzuki and our own tests show an unbelievable fuel economy figure of 3.5L/100km from the three-cylinder, 996cc engine in real world, city and highway driving. Official fuel consumption figures are 4.8L/100km.

Suzuki believes the Alto is set to challenge the market and ultimately become the most popular Suzuki, overtaking the Swift. From what we've seen so far, there is no doubt it will do just that.

Stay tuned as CarAdvice will have a First Steer published on the Alto in the next 12 hours.
