According to executives of Suzuki China, the new Alto will be made in Changan Suzuki by September 2009 as the joint venture’s latest entry-level small car.

Re: 2009 Suzuki Alto

Love that glove compartment open like that...no click and open glove compartment, eh? Just an open hole to stuff things in to. Ya never know, might be just right. This is a great car to weather the high gas prices, if they should return again. It looks like it would be a fun car to drive.

Re: 2009 Suzuki Alto

Truedat on the headlights, though, a straight-on shot of the car from the front would be useful to really see that weird headlamp design, eh?

BTW-I love the Lancer pic I'm using below. It really shows the great job of body designing Mitsu has done with this Lancer GTS. It's the cool bodykit also, that makes the car. This '08 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS design and that of the '65 Ford Mustang are my two all-time favorites, ever produced by any car maker from any period of time.

Re: 2009 Suzuki Alto

here in the Philippines, it is dubbed as the Suzuki Celerio because the Indian Alto is still being sold here.

This Suzuki Alto is also built at Maruti-Suzuki's plant in India. However, in India it's called Suzuki A-Star.
