The current model comes in a single variant with a 796 cc engine under the hood producing 47 hp and 68 nm of torque which is enough for a car with a curb weight of just 725 kg. Power is sent to the front wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission. As an entry-level car, the Suzuki Alto 800 still makes a lot of sense for the budget-conscious Filipino buyer.
