Suzuki Japan Alto - my first vehicle

Question

Hi all,

I'm trying to choose my first vehicle. I have no prior experience with vehicles. So far, Japan Alto is the vehicle I found that meets with my requirements. Following are my requirements.

  • My budget is < 2.7 million.
  • I will be daily traveling from Maharagama to Maradana and back
  • A few (around 4) trips to anywhere in the country per year
  • Low maintenance cost and fuel economy are my priorities

I'm a bit reluctant to buy vehicles with high mileage due to the possibility of frequent repairs and low fuel economy. I don't like WagonR (Please mind my preference).

Can I get some advice on this? Please suggest me some cars and any knowledge on Japan Alto.

If I go with Japan Alto, which grade should I buy. ( L, S, X, Turbo RS ). Are price differences between grades really worth the price?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

I'd love to. Can you share your experience and opinion on Turbo RS. How will it hold market value?

I have been using my Alto Turbo Rs for the last four months. never been happier with any other car I owned. Needs some getting used to driving it initially but driving pleasure is maximum. practical, economical, and performs like a sports car. the faster you drive, the fuel economy will increase. As it is a car of a different league please don't even bother to compare it with the ordinary Japanese altos.

How is the fuel economy, in traffic and outstation? What's the manufacturer year your car? Will I be able to find a good car for 2.7 million.

It does around 17 km/l  average . On one trip to Negombo and back from Kandy it had done 23. should do better depending on the driving pattern. Mine is 2016 model. if you have some patience you will not find it difficult to find a 2015 car for around 2.85 mn.

I have some interest in Kia Picanto 2016 also. Any opinions on what's better for my requirements?
