Suzuki Alto Turbo RS
If Suzuki won’t bring this to markets outside of Japan, then surely there are enough of us interested Brits out there to start a whipround to get a shipload of them brought over?
There may be plenty of hotter hatchbacks out there – as in ‘all of them’ – but there are none cuter. And while 63bhp isn’t even half the output of Suzuki’s still-tame Swift Sport, the little Alto Turbo is also roughly half the price, starting at the yen equivalent of just £6800.
It has significantly fewer kilos to shift, too, despite its paddleshift gearbox. And, well, it’s got Turbo RS decals. Winner.
