The Suzuki Alto is a great little city car. It is comfortable, nippy and easy to park.
Due to its small stature, the Suzuki Alto is particularly good for petite drivers - the seat position is high, giving good visibility of the road, and the pedals are easy to reach without needing to have the seat pulled so far forward, that your chin is resting on the steering wheel!
The boot is small, but gives enough room to fit shopping and essentials. If this isn't enough, the rear seats fold forward to provide more room.
My previous car was a Citroen Saxo, which gave me problem after problem, especially with the engine cutting out at traffic lights, and sometimes even whilst driving. The brakes were also very inefficient, and no matter how often I had them fixed, they still never seemed to be very responsive. I have had none of these problems with the Suzuki Alto.
In conclusion, the Suzuki Alto is a great little car, providing all the essentials for a low purchase cost and very low running costs - If you are watching the pennies, then this is definitely a car to consider!
