Suzuki at Geneva Motor Show
Europe's Suzuki Splash
12th February, 2009
- Suzuki strengthens environmental efforts with advanced engine auto stop/start mechanism to significantly reduce CO2 emissions
- Latest generation variable valve timing technology for 1.0-litre petrol engine
- European launch of new Alto offers style and eco-friendliness at an attractive price
The Suzuki Motor Corporation will use this year’s Geneva Motor Show to present the next steps
in their eco strategy. At their stand number 4251, in hall 4, the company will demonstrate their
commitment to offer technologically advanced, yet affordable eco-friendly vehicles to customers.
New Suzuki Alto offers eco-friendly driving fun
This northern spring, the all new Alto will be introduced to European markets; the all new city car has been
developed with eco-friendly urban motoring in mind, delivering low CO2 emissions (just 103 grammes/kilometre)*
and high fuel economy.
At the same time, the compact new Alto offers driving pleasure at an affordable price, uniquely wrapped up in
a stylish and practical package.
Suzuki's new Alto will be released in Australia in coming months.
Further steps for Suzuki’s eco project
The core of Suzuki’s eco project is a continuous improvement of vehicle eco-friendliness by researching and
developing new technologies. In Geneva, Suzuki will show the next steps of this project – the application of the
engine auto stop/start system, being the latest milestone in this strategy, and a variable valve timing mechanism
to the next generation Splash and Alto. The global leader in the mini vehicle segment will be able to further
minimise their already low CO2 emissions significantly in the future – but always taking into account complexity
and competitive pricing.
