2014 Suzuki Alto Spotted During Testing --AutosExpress.The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Structures in the dashboard presented a risk of injury to the knees and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Dummy readings indicated marginal protection of the driver's lower legs. Side impact airbags are optional on some variants of the Alto. The current model was launched in 2008 so time has come for a replacement which will be based on the latest WagonR that came out in Japan last year. The car is expected to grow in size compared to the outgoing model and should gain additional equipment inside the cabin. We'd avoid the range-topping SZ4. It comes with lots of standard kit, but there are much better city cars if you're prepared to spend this sort of money.
The front edge of the bonnet scored no points for the protection it offers to pedestrians' legs. The protection offered by the bumper was marginal. Poor protection was provided by the bonnet in most areas likely to be struck by the head of an adult or a child.Depending on market, the Suzuki Alto is also sold as the Celerio, Nissan Pixo and as a Maruti Suzuki A-Star. These prototypes were seen testing somewhere in the south European mountains and in some of the photos we take a look at the rather modest 90s-like interior cabin.
