Pak Suzuki Starts Manufacturing Alto in Pakistan from Next Week

Pak Suzuki Motor Company Ltd. (PSMCL) is going to start assembling the eighth generation Suzuki Alto 660cc from next week at Port Qasim Assembly plant in Karachi.

The decision has come just days after it officially discontinued the production of its veteran mid-range 800cc Suzuki Mehran VX and VXR.

Pricing

While an official confirmation is yet to come, people familiar with the development believe that the MT variant of the car will cost around Rs. 0.9 to 1 million, going above Rs. 1 million for the top of the line Automatic model.

Sources believe that the delay in price confirmation is due to the recent devaluation of the rupee against dollar. If the local currency slips further against the greenback, it may affect the price tag of the car.

Specs

The JDM-based Alto is a Heartect product, measuring 13,395mm/1,475mm/1,500 mm in length, width, and height respectively.

Under the hood, it is fitted with an R06A 0.66-liter naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 49 PS/52 PS (VVT) and 58 Nm/63 Nm (VVT) of torque.

It will come with a 5-speed automatic or manual transmission and will be available in two manual trims and an automatic trim. The car is expected to use the same transmission as that of the locally-made Suzuki Wagon R. The upgraded manual variant, and the auto version will get a power steering.

Launch Date

The company is expected to display and book limited units of the latest Alto model at the Pakistan Auto Parts Show (PAPS 2019). The show is scheduled to be held from April 12-14 in Karachi and the official launch is expected to be after Eid-ul-Fitr in June.

The company is yet to release any information about the use of localized parts; some vendors believe it will start with 50 percent locally manufactured parts and then increase the production in upcoming years.

Whereas, sources in the PSMCL suggest the company intends to utilize 80% of Mehran vendors for manufacturing Alto 660cc parts and accessories, and will further expand with time.

  • As expected again PAK suzuki is not sincere to give RELIEF in shape of price and quality as they are giving in foreign countries such policy will not STAY more and Chinese made products will surely capture locally made MOTOR vehicle products

  • Due to present and upcoming heavy competition under auto policy, i guess Suzuki is willing to defeat all its rival by the announcement of lowest amd affordable price of locally manufactured Alto 660cc. So im thinking positively foe a lower priced alto

    • I think it would be highly unfair to compare the prices of automobiles with India. Their rupee is more stable the PKR, they provide the facility of zero texation on new products, their own vedors make almose 95% of sapre parts and the most important they have much more options availble in hatchback segment to choose from.

  • Well I believe the price will be very justified if kept around 1 million as most of the consumers have that bracket in their reach and this car can compete with the expensive imported cars

  • I don’t think that user will get same experience as they had with any other 660cc Japanese car. I’ve strong feelings that we will find a-near interior look and feel as it was in Mehran. 1 million price would be affordable only if Suzuki putssame or more features that any 660cc Japanese cars do have.

  • Mafia! Cartel! what should one call. These manufacturers are uncontrollable. Their thirst for money never fades. The prices are very high and no one in this country has any control on these assemblers.
    Can they declare their costing sheet for this Alto and profit on each variant of it. The Actual One!
    We can only hope that Allah catch them and give relief to the common man.
    And common man will buy it at any cost. If we can boycot it and dont purchase these vehicles then they will be forced to decrease the prices. But who cares.

  • suzuki company should think relief for poor Pakistani peoples not only in price but also in quality too as every body knows if you have Suzuki vehicle manufactured in other country is 200 percent good as compare local made
