Check them out!
As is evident from the images we have here, Suzuki has decided to go the retro way for its new Alto! The latest mini car’s exterior boasts of large headlamps and a large bumper that has a minimalistic design. The highlight here though, are the classic-styled slits, which replace a conventional front grille. In side profile, the latest generation JDM Alto looks slightly like the AStar* we all know of, especially towards the C-pillar. The car gets really understated looks at the rear, with the highlight being bumper-mounted combination lamps, another classic touch!
