The Suzuki Alto is not new especially for kei car aficionados but, it looks like the Japanese automaker wanted to surprise fans by revealing a new factory tuned Alto RS Turbo concept ahead of its debut at the 2015 Tokyo Auto Salon in January.
In a nutshell, the said concept is basically the turbocharged version of the standard Alto for the Japanese market. At first glance, you can instantly recognize the difference of the Alto RS Turbo concept from the standard model. The grill of the Alto RS Turbo concept also differs from the standard model. In fact, if you look closely, you’ll notice that the radiator grill is composed of three horizontal bars.
With the intention of establishing its own identity, the Alto RS Turbo concept is fitted with blacked out headlights along with red accents seen on the bumper and exterior mirrors. The hood as well as the roof of the concept features a silver colored vinyl. It is finished off with red 17-inch alloy wheels.
In terms of power, Suzuki remains coy in handing out the official details. The standard Alto comes with either a five-speed automated manual or a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
