With a combined fuel economy figure of just 4.8 litres per 100 kilometres, and low CO2 emissions, the Alto scored an overall greenhouse gas rating of 8.5 out of 10.
The rating has helped Alto join a select group of cars to score a prestigious five-star efficiency rating.
“Alto was engineered on the concept that people should be able to choose economical, eco-friendly motoring without sacrificing style, comfort, practicality, safety or performance,” says Suzuki Australia General Manager Tony Devers.
“More importantly, we believe drivers should not have to pay a premium price for choosing to help the planet. That is why we made the conscious decision not to use costly technology such as a hybrid powertrain.”
Alto now has a five star green car rating to go with its four star ANCAP safety rating.
