Suzuki India, also known as Maruti Suzuki, has stopped production of its entry-level hatchback model Alto 800. The company will now sell only a few units that are in stock. It will now be replaced by the new alto model “K10”.
According to Maruti’s official website, the alto 800 is priced between 354,000 (about 1.235 million Pakistani rupees) to 513,000 Indian rupees (about 1.79 million Pakistani rupees).
The Pakistani versions of Alto are priced between Rs2.6 million and Rs3 million.
Suzuki Alto 2023 in Pakistan is currently in its eighth generation. In 1979, Suzuki Alto was introduced in the Pakistani automobile market. At that time it was launched under alternative names like Suzuki 800 and Suzuki FX.
From time to time manufacturers updated the car and changed its “face” and eventually, it reached the current 8th generation of the car.
The eighth generation of Suzuki Alto was officially launched in Pakistan in 2014, made some changes with facelift in 2019 and then launched again in 2020.
