Suzuki Alto SZ-L is announced and starts on sale from this week. It is limited to just 500 units, so be hurry, if you want one.

The SZ-L is based on the SZ3, which already features air conditioning with pollen filter and side airbags as standard equipment. Now, Suzuki offers you a higher specification at low cost – front fog lamps and various exterior and interior upgrades. The price of Suzuki SZ-L is £8 170 on the road.

Outside, the vehicle features stylish new design wheel caps, black fog lamp surrounds and black B pillar trims as well as SZ-L embossed tailgate trim and black side mouldings for extra protection when parked. SZ-L is available in either Superior White or Bright Red non metallic colours.

Inside, the upgrades are SZ-L carpet mats, silver coloured trim for gearshift knob, side ventilation louvres and door openers. The SZ-L individual theme is continued for the heater control, gear lever and door handle surrounds which are coordinated in body colour.

Suzuki UK has probably the best offers on the market – until September the SZ-L will be available on a new low rate finance offer for just £7 495 with a deposit of 15 per cent and payments are £199 per month, spread over 36 months.

All three cars in the range are also included in the low rate offers with the SZ2 model available for just £6 995 with a 10 per cent deposit.

Suzuki Alto is one of the greenest cars on the market with emissions of just 103g/km CO2 and returning 64/2mpg – combined cycle. The running costs are extremely low - an annual VED charge of £20 and insurance group 1E classification.

All this benefits make Alto very desired car and perfect value for money.
