Suzuki announced that the Alto Turbo RS will be released on March 11. The turbo model is back after 15 years since the old generation Alto Works.
The Alto Turbo RS’ engine generates a maximum output and maximum torque of 64ps and 98Nm respectively. This power unit is mounted on the 670kg lightweight body (2WD). The engine is mated to an Auto Gear Shift (AGS) five-speed transmission equipped with paddle shifters.
It is outfitted with a strut bar and a high-rigidity front bumper. It also features a stiffer body, owing to the thickening of the cowl front panel and the upper bracket of the suspension.
Its suspension and brakes are exclusively tuned. It offers linear steering, and a sportier and more stable ride performance because of the newly-developed aluminum wheels and the Potenza RE050A sport tires.
