The 9th gen Alto is being reportedly developed by Suzuki. The company is planning to unveil it by the end of 2020. Furthermore, the reports are that Suzuki would unveil the next generation of Suzuki Vitara.
Back in Dec 2014, the 8th gen Suzuki Alto was launched. It was equipped with a 660cc R60A 3-cylinder engine which made 39 horsepower and 53 newton/meters of torque. It is offered both with a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AGS semi-automatic transmission.
It is expected that 9th gen Alto will have a newly developed R60D 660cc 3-cylinder engine. It is expected to make up to 48 horsepower and 69 newton/meters of torque. The car might be based on a new, light platform, even though the transmission options would be the same.
Furthermore, the rumor is circulating that Suzuki is planning to launch a sportier version which will be unveiled in October 2021. According to the reports, the new version will have a turbocharged R60D engine.
Also, as per the reports Maruti Suzuki is also working on launching the new-gen Suzuki. It might be launched in India at almost the same time as its global launch. However, Pak Suzuki Motors has not said anything regarding the car’s launch in Pakistan. This means that Pakistani customers would have to wait for its launch in the country.
